Controversial mannequin BarBe-Q shot at in Reading

READING, OH (FOX19) - The controversial mannequin in Reading was involved in a shooting.

On Monday, Kenny Tessel, owner of K-T's Barbeque tells FOX19 that BarBe-Q was shot three times by some sort of pellet or BB gun. Tessel says that the bullets shattered one of his windows, but luckily BarBe- Q is safe and was just covered in glass.

"Did some hillbilly trash really thing she could win for Mayor or was this just a hate crime?" said Tessel. "I don't know, but we will seek justice for this cowardly act."

Barbe-Q entered the race for Mayor in Reading back in September. She already has supporters and is asking for write-in votes because she could not be added to the ballot.
