Rusty: Rusty (from the author of an excellent blog on Appalachia) means: showing out, acting like a clown, making a fool of yourself, or even pitching a fit-like a little kid throwing a rusty. Although I have heard it used in my area of Appalachia-it's been several years-and it was from an older person.
Maybe nothing, just a rusty, the sheriff had told her, but he didn't want to take a chance.
It could have been just a rusty somebody was playing, couldn't it, like you said?
