Florida grandma faces assault charges for allegedly shooting her crush

Authorities in Fort Mccoy, Florida say Helen Staudiner wanted a kiss from her crush -- and when she didn't get one from him, she got angry.

Police say the 92-year-old woman started shooting at Dwight Bettner's home. The man says he asked her to leave his home, but she refused.

"She said I'm not leaving without a kiss. And I said, 'I have a girlfriend so I'm not gonna give you no kiss,' said Dwight Bettner.

The grandmother is now charged with aggravated assault and shooting into an occupied home.
