July 2010: Crabb and Cox

 *Added 7/8/10
 Possibly the best headline ever written:

"Tired Gay succumbs to Dix in 200 meters"

True story.

I was sent the following article from the Clinton paper. Hilarious and inappropriate. I thought "man, this would make a great ITYM post!" and then realized that today was, in fact, July 1st!

Let's get 'er rolling! Here is a clipping from today's paper:

CLINTON, Iowa — A Clinton man has been charged with a felony after he allegedly hit a neighbor in the head with a cooking pan during an altercation.

Police were called to an apartment building at 143 6th Ave. S. at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and found Dewey Cox, 40, passed out on the floor of his apartment with blood on his face and head, according to court records.

A witness told police Cox and his neighbor,  Todd A. Crabb, 47, were drinking in Cox’s apartment when Crabb became upset with Cox, grabbed a metal pan off the stove and hit Cox on the head with it. Cox then hit Crabb back, and the two continued to fight in the hallway of the apartment building in front of other residents, according to court records.

Crabb also resisted police who tried to place him under arrest, according to court records.

Cox was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Clinton. Hospital staff told police Cox may have suffered a brain injury, and he was transferred by helicopter to University Hospitals in Iowa City. No information about his condition was available Tuesday.

Crabb was charged with willful injury, a Class C felony, and interference with official acts and disorderly conduct, both simple misdemeanors. He was being held Tuesday in the Clinton County Jail on $10,000 bond.
