Here’s a weird story from the weekend out of Washington that we missed.
According to a story in the Bremerton Patriot, a drunk woman was choked unconscious while driving by a friend of her boyfriend, which would be commendable if he successfully prevented her from committing a DUI. Unfortunately he simply did it to be an asshole.
Apparently the trio had been out drinking and the girlfriend was nominated to drive home as she was the least intoxicated of the group.
Halfway to her boyfriend’s house where the men were staying for the night, the friend, who had been arguing with the driver about how loud and belligerent he was being while she was trying to concentrate on the road and who happened to be a heavyweight MMA fighter from California, thought it would be funny to choke the chick out. Fortunately for the three idiots, she was able to bring the vehicle to a complete stop before blacking out and pissing her pants as a result of the expertly-applied rear naked choke.
The woman, who police say was obviously intoxicated when they interviewed her at a friend’s house where she had gone to change her pissy pants, said that all she remembers is reaching for a knife she keeps in the car for protection with the intention of stabbing her attacker, but says she dropped the blade when she started to lose consciousness and began hitting the steering wheel to signal that she was in distress.
She contends that her choker ignored her tapout and continued to hold the sub until she went limp. Although the name of the fighter hasn’t been released, we have our suspicions who it was.
Anyway, the 33-year-old fighter was booked on second-degree assault charges and the boyfriend was also taken into custody for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. Both denied the assault took place in spite of a puddle of urine in the drivers seat of the woman’s vehicle, a knife found on the driver’s side floor and her statement about the incident.
The driver was not charged as she was not seen driving by police and it was impossible for them to prove whether or not she was drunk when she was driving, or if she got blitzed at the friend’s house after calling 9-1-1.
How about testing the urine on the seat?
No word as to whether or not the accused will be extradited back to California to face a peer jury, but Joe Son says he’s ready to hear his case.
