Soaring gas prices are hitting everyone hard, forcing many to resort to unconventional means of transportation. Some are choosing to walk when they can, others ride bicycles around town, while some brave souls even dare to climb aboard the public transportation systems (Note: Watch out for homeless people’s urine in the seats. We learned the hard way.). All in all, this lifestyle change is making the general population a bit cranky and edgy. Case in point, 6-foot-1-inch, 205-pound Arkansas linebacker Wendel Davis opted to go with riding a scooter and went psycho when he was rear-ended.
Arkansas linebacker Wendel Davis faces a felony criminal mischief charge after police say he punched through the window of a car that bumped his scooter.
Davis, 19, of Sweeny, Texas is scheduled to appear before a judge July 30 over the charge, stemming from an altercation Tuesday afternoon. If convicted, Davis could face up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
A university police spokesman says Davis’ fist put dents into the car and broke its windshield. Davis was released without bond pending his court hearing.
OK, so there appears to be more to this story than simple road rage over gas prices like we indicated earlier. Turns out Davis was involved in an altercation with the rear-ender, Onyebuchi Odunukwe, hours before the “accident” and sent Davis threatening texts during the days prior. What caused the beef? A chickenhead, of course.
Davis said the threats began after he kissed Odunukwe’s girlfriend early Saturday
The babes simply can’t resist mopeds.
