"Demon Terbakky Done Got A Powerful Hold On Joe-Bob" Or "I'd Kill For A Cigarette"


White Trash Wednesday

(I may be a week between entry days, but at least I'm getting WTW out on time.) I've heard of jonesing for a smoke, but this is ridiculous:

A north Idaho man accused of ramming his truck into his estranged wife's home Monday after unsuccessfully demanding that she bring him a cigarette has been arrested, police said. No one was injured.

. . .

Caroline Marienau, who said she's in the process of getting a divorce, said Eric Marienau parked his full-size Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck next to her house about 7 a.m., police said.

He went to the home's fence and began shouting for her to bring him a cigarette, Caroline Marienau told police. She said he began pounding on her front door, telling her if she didn't come outside with a cigarette that he would return with his truck and ram her house.

"Eric returned a minute later and rammed the front of the house near the garage area at a high rate of speed. He then backed up and rammed the front of the house at least two more times," Police Sgt. Christie Wood said. "The impact forced a 1993 Ford Ranger that was parked inside the garage to be propelled approximately four feet through a wall into the interior of the bedroom."
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Mr. Marienau has had previous interactions with the law-enforcement community:
Marienau has a lengthy criminal record, which seem to stem from when he shot himself in the head in 1977. Court records show he has a bullet lodged behind his right eye. In 2000, he was arrested for . . .
Place your bets, place your bets!

The book is now closed. The winning answers are...

. . . possession of meth and trafficking meth. In 1996, he was charged with three counts of felony forgery and two counts of fraud.

'Fraud' pays 3-to-1, 'Forgery' pays 2.5-to-1, and 'Meth' pays 0.2-to-1. The Fraud-Forgery-Meth trifecta pays 38-to-1.

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour via the WTW blogroll on my sidebar.



See, this has got to be one of those stories that starts with "First, so-and-so had a few drinks..."

My best stories always start that way. Chevy pickup not included.
