A 92-year-old Florida woman has been arrested after she allegedly fired shots at a neighbour who refused to kiss her. Police said Helen Staudinger, of Fort McCoy, went next door to visit Dwight Bettner, 53, and grew angry when he would not give her a kiss.

She then allegedly fired four rounds into Mr Bettner's house from a semi-automatic pistol, shattering a window. No-one was hurt.

Mr Bettner said: "I was standing in the bedroom talking on the phone when one of the bullets came into the bedroom. The other three bullets hit the side of the house."

He told police he had ongoing issues with his neighbour, who he said had grown enamoured with him and threatened to shoot him when he told her he had a girlfriend. He said Mrs Staudinger had once cooked dinner or breakfast for him and he gave her a kiss on the cheek just "trying to be nice to her".

But she told the local Star-Banner newspaper that she used to cook regularly for Mr Bettner when he first moved into her Fort McCoy neighborhood.

But she said their relationship soured because of his "lies" and that he was not "paying his way" when they dined out. Mrs Staudinger, who denies asking Mr Bettner for a kiss, faces charges of aggravated assault and firearms offences.
