She just got a slap on the wrist. What about a Restraining Order to stay away from Terri?

This is really stupid in some ways unbelievable here we have a woman
stupid enough to actually walk up in public and imitate something
Simon Cowell did on a TV show to the point she believes Cowell is
actually choking Paula Abdul. Yes Cowell can be a real jerk and this
is a good time to point out Cowell has NO musical background unlike
the other three he started by producing and selling awful novelty
records in Britian that could NOT sell today due to the nature of the
business and how radio has changed. Anyway, Cowell can be a total jerk
and this is what angered this woman who's obviously nuts for trying to
choke a woman in public as retaliation for some precieved slight on
TV. It's almost gotten to the point now that everybody has a stalker
of some kind and the joke "the problem with celebrity stalkers is
there just aren't enough to go around" no longer applies...

When they first told the story didn't they say oh poor Teri her attacker is huge...200 pound woman. What are they talking about??? This woman is small. Not that it makes it right but good god they made it sound like she was attacked by a WWE wrestler.

If you watch more than the first 10 seconds of the video, you'll see that this woman is not tiny. She is quite large once you see her body.

LOL this is the 200 lb woman who attacked Teri? She looks 145 if she weighs that much. I guess Teri being underweight, makes her assume this woman was overweight.
