A squabble over a roll of toilet paper landed an elderly pair of Brooklyn, NY siblings in jail last week. Sixty-seven-year-old Howard Meltzer and his 72-year-old sister Bernice have been on the outs for years. In fact, even though they share a house together they have a restraining order against each other. But things came to a head last week when the sister allegedly dashed to her bedroom with the last roll of Charmin and locked herself in. So Howard, who walks with a cane and sometimes uses a motorized scooter, banged on her door and didn’t let up until almost midnight. “The roll was full when I went there in the morning” Howard said. “She unloaded a whole roll and left just a little, and when I looked up to the reserve it wasn’t there.” Howard then threatened to call the police on his sister who, he said, put the roll back by midnight.” By that time she was fed up with her brother’s constant banging and called 911. Because the two were under restraining orders the cops charged them both with violating them. Both were released without bail. “I can only imagine what was going on with those two,” said a law-enforcement source, who added “But when you gotta go, you gotta go.”
