You be the judgePosted Saturday, August 8, 2009, at 2:55 PM
Two Shelbyville women -- near neighbors, one lives a few trailers away from another -- both claim ownership of a scooter, a police report said last week.
One is accusing the other of stealing the scooter, which has teeth marks on one of the handlebars (which is a story in itself. I've heard of gripping handlebars hard, but with your teeth???)
The accused said she bought it for $3 or $4 at a yard sale. Neither has proof of ownership. Neighbors said they'd seen both women with the scooter.
The investigating officer told the accuser to take it to the judicial commissioner.
So...You're the judicial commissioner. How do you handle the case? (My inclination would be to tell them to work it out among themselves without proof of ownership.)
