The Red Bull Defense -
September 21st, 2010
Energy drinks are to be consumed by X Game enthusiasts and young crazy bastards willing to jump a rally car off of Long Beach pier. For the rest of us, the piss-flavored, peppy potations are a nice midday pick-me-up. Mix them with soft drinks and diet pills and what do you get? A hiccupping hillbilly's murder defense.
Woody Will Smith of Dayton, KY says he was so fearful his wife and kids would leave him while he slept that he stayed wired on a mélange of legal stimulants. Smith's plan backfired when he strangled his wife with an extension cord in what he described as "a daze." The defense is blaming the homicide on caffeine intoxication.
We blame the hardware store that sold Smith the extension cord.
