Chicken Dinner Feud Lands 76-Year-Old Woman in Court

The woman hit her daughter after one of the victim's children got into an argument about a piece of chicken, charges allege.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner?

One chicken dinner wasn't so winning for a 76-year-old Brookfield woman, who was charged Wednesday with disorderly conduct after an argument over a piece of chicken allegedly turned physical.

Carol R. Basile was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court with one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse. If convicted, she faces up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

Basile's daughter and family were at Basile’s Brookfield home for a birthday party on Sept. 2 when Basile’s husband got into an argument with one of the daughter's children about a piece of chicken.

The daughter and her family decided to leave. On the way out, Basile, who had been drinking heavily that day, got in her daughter's way and put her hand by her daughter's neck.

The daughter turned away, and Basile hit her on the back of the head. The daughter’s husband then got involved, and Basile kicked him in the leg and pushed him away, the complaint alleges.

The daughter, her husband and children left and called police.

Basile will make her first court appearance Oct. 1.

I really believe that the comment from Steve Dan should be removed. There's no need for a comment like that to be on here!!
