Redneck noir is a pain in the…

September 13, 2009

According to Detroit’s “Action News“:

DEXTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) – An author from Whitmore Lake is facing charges that she shot her father in the rear end and leg.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies say Lisa Reardon drove to her parents home on Brand Road Friday. Once there, deputies say Reardon, whose website describes her as the queen of redneck noir, got into a fight with her father. Following the fight, investigators say Reardon shot her father. He is currently in stable condition.

Reardon was arrested a short time later, with the help of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department. According to her website, Reardon is the author of several plays and novels, including “The Mercy Killers.”

Police are not commenting on a possible motive. Reardon has been charged with assault with intent to murder, using a firearm to commit a felony and a motor vehicle violation. She was ordered held without bond.

  1. HA! I commute through Whitmore Lake everyday. She probably shot him for one of two reasons. Either they don’t support the same NASCAR driver… or, maybe he mocked her claim of being a Redneck queen.

    Living in Whitmore Lake and calling it redneck is like calling Del Mar ‘the ghetto.’ I just moved from the local epicenter of redneck… I was 4 miles from Michigan Speedway. Yes, we’re talking lawn tractors with numbers on the side, and glass decals of Calvin (as in Hobbes) pi55ing on some other race car driver’s number. If she’d been a true queen of redneck noir… THAT was the place to be. It was a nice place to live, but I wouldn’t want to visit there. — CPS
