TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
David Wilson, 57, an Indiana man who was arrested for choking his fiancee, because she thought the Indy 500 was better than NASCAR.
Police say that Wilson became infuriated after Sunday’s 500 when his fiancee declared that Indy Racing was better than NASCAR.
The argument quickly turned violent as he began choking her.
She quickly got away from him and called 911, and he was arrested for domestic battery and strangulation.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Jeremy James Wallace, 30, an Arizona drug dealer, who made a rookie drug dealing mistake by trying to sell his dope on Craigslist.
Undercover police offered Wallace $550 for marijuana and arranged to meet him.
Wallace realized his mistake as he pulled up, but he was arrested as he tried to drive away from the meeting place.
When police searched Wallace, they found plastic bags containing a green leafy substance and cannabis wax.
Police said they also noted a strong smell of marijuana coming from Wallace’s car and discovered that his driver’s license had been suspended.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Mark Willis, 39, a known sex predator in Britain, who picked the wrong woman to assault because she was a female kick boxer.
Willis repeatedly punched the victim as she walked home in the early hours of the morning.
He then jumped on top of her and tried to pull down her shorts, but the woman, who regularly goes kick boxing and has also taken a self-defense course, quickly turned the tables on Willis and tried to break his arm with a hold she had been taught.
She then got him in a scissor grip with her legs, throttling him so forcibly that he passed out.
A jury convicted Willis of sexual assault and the judge put him in custody for a psychiatric report to be prepared.
