What could be dumber than claiming a pterodactyl caused you to drive your car into a light pole? How about keying a Marine's car?
Marine Sgt Mike McNulty is on activation orders to Iraq (second tour). On December 1st, 2007, Mike went to visit a friend in Chicago before deploying to say goodbye.
While saying goodbye, at about 11am, he noticed a man leaning up against his car. Mike left his friend's apartment and caught the man keying his car on multiple sides.
After caught in the process, the man told Mike, "you think you can do whatever you want with Department of Defense license plates and tags". (In Illinois you can purchase veteran, Marine, or medal plates. Mike has Illinois Marine Corps license plates.) During the exchange, he made additional anti-military comments.
Mike called the Chicago police and had the man arrested. A citation against the man was issued for misdemeanor criminal damage to private property
The jerk in question is a lawyer named Jay Grodner. I am going to guess that Mr. Grodner may regret his actions. Seems his office phone lines have been disconnected, his long list of legal problems published for all to see.
"In addition to being disciplined for being involved in a scheme to forging documents, it has been reported to CLR that attorney Jay Robert Grodner has since then engaged in a conflict of interest with his clients, has abandoned his clients, has engaged in false billing, has engaged in a fraud upon his clients, provided ineffective assistance of counsel, and has engaged in a "fraud upon the court". "
But it gets worse... a lot worse for him. He has a listing on an internet "dating" site. And by dating I mean skip dinner and the movie dating. What a creep. Click at your own risk.
