On January 16, 2012, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin police arrested Michael West for domestic abuse. His wife, Rebecca, was crying and bleeding from the nose when they arrived. A drunk West said that they were arguing about finances when the strangest thing happened. His wife had fallen to the floor multiple times and was being strangled by a ‘ghost’ and he had nothing to do with it. The police arrested Mr. West for attempted strangulation, battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He was also ordered to stay sober. The ghost said it was finally grateful for Mr. West’s arrest, as his drunken outburst were really too much and any fool could see that ghosts just don’t have the hand strength to get a good strangulation in.

I may have to try this ghost-did-it defense with the Twisted Historian, next time I miss a deadline. Share this post, if you think I don’t have a ghost of a chance at success.
