Woman drives motor-home into Las Vegas-area casino after she was kicked out
LAS VEGAS – A 50-year-old woman upset about getting kicked out of the Cannery casino drove her Winnebago motorhome through the front doors and ran over an elderly custodian, according to authorities.
Jennifer Stitt had been ejected from the North Las Vegas casino early Friday morning.
“Disorderly conduct,” said North Las Vegas Police spokesman Eric Leavitt. “They asked her to leave, but she didn’t want to leave.”
Casino staff informed Stitt that her refusal to leave constituted trespassing.
“She didn’t agree with the trespassing, ” Leavitt said.
That’s when Stitt left the building, got behind the wheel of her RV and plowed it through the glass front doors of the casino, police said.
Outside, a 66-year-old custodian stood in the path of the incoming Winnebago.
“He looked up and said, ‘you’re hitting me!” Leavitt said. “And she continued to accelerate at him, actually running him over. She knew fully well what she was doing.”
Casino security surrounded the Winnebago and pulled the angered woman out.
The custodian suffered critical injuries, Leavitt said, but he is expected to survive.
Police took the Stitt into custody. She is likely to face an attempted murder charge, police said.
