ELYRIA, Ohio—The 70-year-old wife of an Ohio judge says teens who tried to rob her made her so angry that she whacked one in the head with a sauce pan.

Ellen Basinski says she was on the phone with her husband Tuesday when four boys pushed their way into her home in Elyria, west of Cleveland.

Lorain County Judge David Basinski overheard the scuffle and raced home, while his wife grabbed her favorite pan to defend herself against the intruders rifling through her purse and cabinets.

One of the teens told police he threw a bottle of whiskey at Basinski to distract her so another boy could flee. They ran from the house but were later caught and charged with aggravated burglary.

The judge says his wife is upset that police took the pan as evidence.


Hahahahah! Good for her! This is one county over from me. Sometimes other Ohioans make me so proud. :)

Lagasse replaces pan woman used to fend off attack
3 hours ago

ELYRIA, Ohio — Chef Emeril Lagasse says he felt so bad when he heard a woman lost one of his trademark pans while warding off home intruders that he's replacing the item. Lagasse is sending 70-year-old Ellen Basinski a whole new set of his signature cookware.

She used her favorite pan to fight the intruders at her home west of Cleveland on Tuesday. Police then took it from her to be used as evidence.

Basinski was on the phone with her husband when the teens pushed their way into her home.

Her husband, Lorain County Judge David Basinski, overheard the scuffle, called 911 and raced home. Meanwhile, his wife says she grabbed the 5-quart saucepan and hit one teen, who was going through her purse.

The four were arrested. The judge said his wife was upset that her pan was seized by police.

You know I thought he'd do that. He was on GMA this morning as well and when they showed the clip of the pan it definitely said "Emeril" on it. LOL! Good guy :)

Maybe he'll be able to sell more pans if they market them as home security as well as cooking!

Now I know what to use my frying pan or sauce pan (whatever that is) for. Self-defense.

When we first got together, Chris dropped a cast iron frying pan onto the top of my foot. All I can say is, that crap smurfing hurts.
