The herd has been thinned out a bit more down in Roanoke, Va. as a drunken prank ends in a fatal stabbing.
Seems 35 year old Jonathan Freel was hanging out with friends at a local sports bar where they were giving each other some pretty nasty wedgies in the same manner as they’d seen on the show Jackass. Apparently Freel made the mistake of giving a wedgie to a friend of a guy named Michael Keith Williams who didn’t take it too well. Williams declared he’d never let anyone disrespect him in such a manner and Freel said he’d do whatever he wanted to Williams. A big argument breaks out and the bar staff break it up and ask the men to leave. Out in the parking lot the tempers flare again and Williams throws a bottle near Freel who gets really pissed off and chases him across the street where the two men appeared to witnesses to be boxing, but it turns out that Williams had a knife and managed to pretty much eviscerate Freel despite the man being much bigger and heavier. Now Williams is on trial for Freel’s death and his lawyers are trying to claim self-defense. All of this over a wedgie that Williams himself wasn’t the recipient of.
So remember kids: Drinking and wedgies can be dangerous! Always have a designated wedgie person on hand who remains sober enough to know when he’s taking a stupid prank too damned far.
