    Armed with snub-nosed .38, Miss America 1944 stops intruder on her farm

    Armed with snub-nosed .38, Miss America 1944 stops intruder on her farm

    Sat Apr 21, 4:46 AM

    WAYNESBURG, Ky. (AP) - Miss America 1944 has a talent that likely has never appeared on a beauty pageant stage: She fired a handgun to shoot out a vehicle's tires and stop an intruder.

    Venus Ramey, 82, confronted a man on her farm in south-central Kentucky last week after she saw her dog run into a storage building where thieves had previously made off with old farm equipment.

    Ramey said the man told her he would leave. "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey said.

    She had to balance on her walker as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-calibre handgun.

    "I didn't even think twice. I just went and did it," she said. "If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be six feet under by now."

    Ramey then flagged down a passing motorist, who called 911.

    Curtis Parrish of Ohio was charged with misdemeanor trespassing, Deputy Dan Gilliam said. The man's hometown wasn't immediately available. Three other people were questioned but were not arrested.

    After winning the pageant with her singing, dancing and comedic talents, Ramey sold war bonds and her picture was adorned on a B-17 that made missions over Germany in World War II, according to the Miss America Web site.

    Ramey lived in Cincinnati for several years and was instrumental in helping rejuvenate Over-the-Rhine historic buildings. She returned to Kentucky in 1990 to live on her farm.

    "I'm trying to live a quiet, peaceful life and stay out of trouble, and all it is, is one thing after another," she said.

    As a beautiful girl, her image graced a B17 bomber.

    As an old lady, she's got the mojo to draw a bead and bust caps from her walker.

    What a woman.

    82-year-old former Miss America shoots out thieves' tire

    http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.d...WS01/704200369

    "After confronting a man she said was stealing from her Kentucky farm, Ramey pulled out a gun and shot out a tire on his truck so he couldn't leave, allowing police to arrest him and two others."He was probably wetting his pants," Ramey said Thursday from her home in Waynesburg, about 140 miles south of Cincinnati."

    "When she asked a man what he was doing, he replied "scrapping," and said he would leave.
    "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey said.
    She had to balance on her walking stick as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-caliber handgun.
    "I didn't even think twice. I just went and did it. If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be 6 feet under by now."
    Ramey then tried to flag down people driving by. When one stopped, she asked them to call 911. Eventually, three people were arrested - one at the scene and two others walking on a nearby road."

    If I was her, my goal certainly wouldn't have been to prevent them from leaving. I was once dependent on the assistance of a walker, and I promise you the last thing I wanted was for three guys to have no choice but to rush me.
