Police were called after two women used their mouths as weapons against each other.
The two women of Florida, demanded that an officer write up a “hurt feelings report,” after they both called each other “offensive names,” according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
An officer responded to a call regarding the insults in the 700 block of 60th Avenue Terrace West in Bradenton on Sunday.
The caller said that her neighbor had hurt her feelings because she had called her offensive names from the other side of the garden fence.
The neighbor allegedly said she was a prostitute and that she should provide more of her services so that she could afford to pay her electric bill, according to the police.
The officer made contact with the other woman, who said that the caller “was most likely a prostitute,” but denied calling her a name.
She said that her feelings were also hurt when the caller, who is a friend of her landlord, teased her whenever she could not afford to pay rent, according to the report.
Both parties demanded that the officer document their hurt feelings. The officer advised them that there had been no crime as there were no weapons involved, and they do not fear for their safety.
The officer did not file a report.
