Buehler’s Bonehead of the Day:
According to CBS news, a Texas man is charged with assault beat his roommate with a wooden stick after a predawn fight Sunday stemming from an argument about mosquitoes, authorities alleged.
Victor Symone Shavers, 43, attacked his roommate and left him bloody and needing stitches, Dallas police said in an arrest warrant affidavit.
Officers responded to a residence at about 2:42 a.m. Sunday and found Shavers’ roommate outside “with a bloody face.”
The roommate told police Shavers assaulted him shortly after they argued about “what a mosquito looks like,” according to the affidavit.
The affidavit says the argument escalated into a physical fight when Shavers told his roommate he, in fact, did not know what the insect looks like, while the roommate argued otherwise.
Shavers then “grabbed a stick behind his bed” and started hitting his roommate “in the head with the stick at least 6 times,” the affidavit says.
The roommate managed to grab a metal bat from his closet and hit Shavers while he was defending himself, the affidavit says…. For reference there’s a mosquito pictured below!
