Posted July 5, 2011

— Two women were charged with disorderly conduct and assault on a police officer after a fight broke out following a Fourth of July fireworks display in Fuquay-Varina Sunday, police said.

Police Chief Larry Smith said the fight involved between 30 and 50 people, including some who were standing around and yelling, but only Teresa Hunter, 25, and Betty Burch, 22, were arrested. 

Smith said a smaller fight occurred before the fireworks at South Park, but police quickly broke it up.

No other information was released.

    they probably don't live in a trailer park - more likely the projects next door to the park.

    Why is Betty Burch smiling, you ask? She won the fight? This is as close as she will ever get to be on the cover of Rolling Stones? Conditioning - Smile for the camera? Who knows.....

    Maybe she's smiling because she gets to to jail and see the rest of her family.

    It's a shame that a few low-lifes have to mess it all up for others trying to have a good time with their families. Fuquay-Varina should charge a gate fee and use the money for added security. Then, any remaining money could easily assimilated into the budget for that part of the fiscal year. An excellent way to create revenue and make these events safer for the families who would glady come out and spend their money...knwing it would be a safer environment from the low life population.

    she just got her some street cred probably - those who behave like this are quite proud of their 'street cred'.
