Evictions Gone Bad

Here's a riddle: What do a ceramic frog, locksmith, and screwdriver have in common? They were all present at a Staten Island eviction-turned-brawl. A landlord was waiting for the city marshall to evict his tenants for not paying rent when his wife apparently decided to smash a ceramic frog over the tenant's head. Not to be outdone, the landlord then smacked the tenant and her male roommate in the head with a metal pipe and the locksmith stabbed the guy in the back with a screwdriver. Good lord. All three were charged with assault. [Staten Island Advance via DNAinfo]
