Whoah! Sassy eighty-two year beauty queen Venus Ramey, who won the Miss America crown as Miss Washington DC back in 1944, stopped four men she thought were thieves by shooting out their tires to prevent them from leaving.
The former beauty queen had discovered the four men allegedly attempting to steal equipment from her Eubank, Kentucky farm. Feisty Venus stopped the men from leaving by blocking their truck with her own vehicle.
When the four men demanded she move her truck of their way so they could leave, she said, “Oh no you won’t!”, propped herself on her walker to aim her .38 revolver, and shot out their truck tires.
Then, while holding them at gun-point, she flagged down a passer-by who called authorities. One of the men was arrested.
Probably no surprise since the Kentucky beauty was the first red-head ever to win the coveted crown and is the descendant of of a Revolutionary War patriot.
