Daniel Kennedy, 18, and his 16-year-old brother were arrested this week after allegedly overturning a Girl Scout table and attacking the family over a $20 debt. The two Florida teens confronted the family outside of a Palm Coast Wal-Mart over the debt and then demanded payment in cookies. When the family refused, bedlam ensued (and was captured on surveillance cameras).
The Ketchum family was selling the cookies. They said that Daniel Kennedy turned over the table and started throwing punches including at Lisa Ketchum. Thomas Ketchum Sr., 49, was found by police lying on his back. He was still recovering from open heart surgery just three days previously and complained of chest pains.
Daniel Kennedy was charged with disorderly conduct and three counts of battery while his younger brother faces disorderly conduct and one count of battery.
My guess is that Daniel Kennedy was not asking for “Thanks-a-lot” cookies.
