Make that a triple threat: Kenneth Acebal, 48, allegedly a world renowned horse trainer, was not only arrested by Georgia police earlier this month while driving his car naked and smoking meth, his friends say he was driven to it by an earlier child molestation charges.
You know, when this incident first happened last year, it was hard for us to tell if this was a real case of hazing, or just a family looking to make some money because their son got pushed around in the locker room. As you may recall, one of the first things the parents of the victim did was hold a press conference . . . quite an unusual move in a hazing case.
But apparently the incident was serious enough for the state to bring charges against three Dr. Phillips High School (Florida) football players and have a trial. Interestingly, a plea deal that would have amounted to a slap on the wrist was offered to the accused and they refused, preferring to go to trial. Could be interesting.
Apparently being drunk and shouting profanities are still okay at football (soccer) matches, but singing God Save the Queen or making the sign of the cross now violates Scotland’s new anti-bigotry laws at sporting events. Local police still aren’t sure how this will be enforced, but already worry that the approximately $2 million set aside for enforcement won’t be nearly enough.
