84-Year-Old Bingo Player Wilds Out – Authorities in Marion County, Florida said an 84-year-old man pepper-sprayed a security guard at a bingo event. The 67-year-old security guard, Michael Burke, said he used crates to reserve two handicapped parking spaces for women who were coming to the game. However, the crates weren’t enough to stop Donald Handa from taking one of the spots. The guard said Handa moved the crates, parked his car then headed towards the entrance of the building where the bingo event was taking place. Burke allegedly tried to stop him to ask him to move his car, but Handa responded by using pepper spray on him. Handa told deputies that he had a previous run-in with the guard and felt threatened when Burke came after him. In the end, the guard decided not to press charges but Handa also reportedly agreed that in the future he’d “leave the parking spot vacant for the less fortunate.”
