Elderly ladies spark bingo brawl over chair

Officials in the Ontario township of Rideau Lakes say they won't be pressing charges against two residents who caused a brawl Tuesday afternoon. 

And by "brawl," we mean a bunch of residents in an old folks home, squabbling over a chair.

As reported by the Whig Standard , the trouble began at about 1:15 p.m. when two unidentified female residents of the long-term living facility, aged 79 and 86, began arguing over who got to sit in a particular chair during a bingo game.

The argument apparently escalated to the point some of the other residents joined in, whereupon the local police had to be called in to sort things out. Which is a situation just begging for security camera footage but alas, there apparently is none.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries reported.
