HEBRON, Conn. (WTNH) -- Charges were dropped for a Hebron grandmother arrested for tearing down some political signs she found offensive.
Nancy Lack became an unexpected activist back on October 11 when she came across a display showing posters of President Obama with a Hitler style mustache.
It was set up right across the street from the Hebron post office.
"I shouted out the window, 'You can't do that' or something and I didn't stay and I went to the gym and tried to just work it off, cool off," Lack said.
While at the gym Lack says she didn't work out her frustrations, she got worked up. When she was done, she left her car there, walked back down and started taking down the posters, rolling them up, and walking away even as organizers yelled after her.
They threatened to call police. She said go ahead.
News 8 asked Lack what made her so angry, and she said, "Hitler and the fact that they would do that to the President, the standing President."
A passion was born out of her experience living through World War II as a child, the rations here in America, the fear of attack, Hitler.
"What an evil monster this was," Lack said.
Lack was arrested for the first time ever at age 80, and had to turn in the posters she took. Yesterday the breach of peace and sixth-degree larceny charges were dropped.
"Very good, very relieved, kind of stunned," Lack said when asked how she felt about the charges being dropped.
Would she do it again? Lack told News 8 she might check out the paperwork but wouldn't take the posters.
"I'm not sorry I did it, but I'm sorry for all the trouble afterwards," Lack said.
"She shouldn't really probably have done that, she is an elderly person," Jennifer Molnar of Hebron said.
And that's why her family was worried about her.
