Venus Ramey has earned lots of fame in her 82 years. She was Miss America 1944 and later a candidate for Cincinnati City Council and worked to save Over-the-Rhine’s historic buildings. She performed on Broadway and in movies. Now, though, she’s in the news for another reason.

After confronting a man she said was stealing from her Kentucky farm, Ramey pulled out a gun and shot out a tire on his truck so he couldn’t leave, allowing police to arrest him and two others.

“He was probably wetting his pants,” Ramey said Thursday from her home in Waynesburg, about 140 miles south of Cincinnati.
