Now allow me to direct your attention to one photograph you have already viewed;  this time, notice, on the left side of the screen, in Fitzgerald’s right hand:

Close Up Shot - Fitzgerald and Scissors

Yup, a pair of scissors.  The ONLY reason I bring this up?  It makes me wonder:  Will the good doctor will use this photograph to “prove” that he was defending himself from an armed woman?  I am just speculating, of course, because NO ONE has any idea of how this will all play out.

(Feb 21, 2012)  A long-standing feud is believed to have led to a well-known publisher’s step-daughter  getting punched unconscious at the Independent Parade.

According to KATC TV3′s Facebook page, an incident occurred involving Cherry Fisher May’s step-daughter,  Erin Fitzgerald.  The report says that Fitzgerald approached a float believed to be designed by Glenn Stewart, a local developer who has had a long-standing feud with May.  Three people, including Stewart, were issued summons for disturbing the peace.
