Teenagers Are Writing For The AP

So I see this headline: "Police: Teen's Kidnapping Story a Hoax". Looks like an interesting AP story so I scan it. As expected, it is about a girl that dissappeared and then lied about where she had been. But this paragraph made me laugh: "Kelsey was missing for about 15 hours before turning up at a stranger's home in her small southeast Kansas town. She said she had clobbered her assailant and was able to escape." Clobbered? [Edit: Yeah, I guess it's possible the girl used the actual term "clobbered" but normally it would be in quotes if that were there case. It's funnier to think thats just the word the reporter used. I choose to believe that.]
