Hmm, always wondered what those were for.

Every time we visited Target, I'd have my boy 'see if he's strong enough to roll the big red bal' yet...

/dad's couch voice: "Cmon boy, you can do it! I think I saw it start to want to move!"

You gotta expect this when you name your store "Target".
 
2021-07-20 4:27:36 PM  
Officials said that the driver was backing out, accelerated and backed over the red ball.

She BACKED OVER the ball? Impressive.
 
2021-07-20 4:27:49 PM  
So they ARE held in place with rebar.  Noted.

Those are actually tomatoes.
 
2021-07-20 4:33:16 PM  
The balls are kind of unique, but every time I walk buy this, I want to do a dive and roll through it.  Possibly dressed as a Ninja.

Holly Springs, Mississippi? Maybe she mistook the ball for a Fat Possum.
 
2021-07-20 4:35:14 PM  
My proof of those being tomatoes...

They are to prevent this sort of car from ending up inside the store.

They apparently work.

"There was a lot of commotion at the exit and I was like, 'is that a car on the balls?' and yeah there was a car on the ball,"

Man, they have fetishes for everything these days.

How?   She wasn't driving a jacked up pickup, so how did she not mash a bumper and come to a stop?
 
2021-07-20 4:36:46 PM  
Leslie Lockhart was leaving the store and was captured in a photo that is now making the rounds on social media. She says people could not help but laugh at the situation once they knew no one was hurt.

"There was a lot of commotion at the exit and I was like, 'is that a car on the balls?' and yeah there was a car on the ball," she described. "So, me and a bunch of people were just trying, standing there, like what do we do? There were several Target employees and a few bystanders just trying to help."


Tell you guys what. Next time, why don't you ask for the name before the interview. That way, if someone says "Leslie Lockhart", you can just smile, nod, and move on...

I mean, shiat... We got more useful info from the initial image. Nobody has still mentioned how someone was able to accomplish this.

Above:  Michelle Write, driver of the vehicle, was previously known around town as being "well behaved" and
"under control" until given a sock by her master, at which point her actions became erratic and unpredictable.

Well, they sort of defeated their purpose today.

/HOW did that woman do that????
 
2021-07-20 4:37:32 PM  
There has to be security video of her doing this. I need to see the video, because this is one of those things that I look at and say "How did you do that?". I don't mean how can you be dumb enough to do that, but, especially after seeing pictures of how the car ended up, how did you physically get that car in that position?
 
2021-07-20 4:41:46 PM  
Ow, my ball !!

They're bollards. Just the same as this, but a different design.

Based on the mugshot, I'm guessing meth was involved. With meth there are no limits.

Funny how it's always privately operated vehicles doing silly stuff like this.  It's as though regular people make for bad universal operators of cars.  Weird.

Meth, perhaps a sprinkling of fentanyl.

How? Did she make it inside of the building? Getting hung up on the thing still keeps you from crashing through the front.

Honestly, Target's red balls seem to work better than traditional bollards.

You must not realize this, because you'd look pretty silly otherwise, but those commercial vehicles? Yeah, they're driven by regular people. They get off work driving their bus and get in a privately operated vehicle to get home.

Jesus. She looks old enough to be my mother.

I said "sort of." If someone had been walking close to that bollard they could have been hurt.

I'm 50 and thought "she's YOUNGER than me??"

I'm guessing meth.

Judging by the mug shot, this is not her first dance at the ball.
