This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at a case involving a woman who got a little too into the holiday spirit. Then, we get an update on the case of a judicial brawl in the parking lot of a White Castle. Finally, we look at one man who loved too much. And far too publicly.
Follow the jump to learn more about this week’s weird and wacky legal cases from around the globe.
Getting in the Holiday Spirit
Ah, Christmas. The special time of year when people drink too much and act in an extra special festive way. As an interesting legal fact, assault cases tend to spike approaching Christmas. But I have never before seen an assault case this much in the holiday spirit.
The woman in this case, a Florida resident, was apparently being needled too much by her boyfriend, who refused to turn the television volume down while she slept. Although she barked at him to stop, he did not. And so she used her two upper limbs to disassemble the artificial Christmas tree and did a pine job of using it as a weapon to get her point across.
She is now facing domestic battery charges. And here I thought that Santa always forgets the batteries.
White Castle Update

I am in Indianapolis for a trial skills seminar tomorrow morning. But while I was here I could not resist the infamous White Castle, where three judges were involved in a shoot out. You can read about it on a prior Weird and Wacky Wednesdays post on my site… #judges #whitecastle #indianapolis #hoosier
A few months ago I brought you the most excellent case of three Indiana judges, involved in a brawl and shootout in an Indianapolis White Castle parking lot.
This week, I’m here with an update on the case. The judges involved have been given suspensions, without pay, for 60 days and 30 days. After a judicial conduct hearing, they were determined to have acted in a manner that was “not merely embarrassing on a personal level; they discredited the entire Indiana judiciary.”
But wait. There’s more.
At a recent trial skills seminar that I was assisting with in Indiana, I managed to get a hotel down the street from the ill-fated White Castle and even paid it a visit for some selfies.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with Target. And there is absolutely nothing wrong if you want to get a little frisky with a stuffed animal. Whatever floats your boat. But there is something wrong if you decide to get a little frisky with a stuffed animal in Target.
That’s the situation that one Florida man, Christopher Meader, found himself in recently. He was arrested and charged with destruction of property by fully ejaculating on a pair of large stuffed animals in Target. Woweee. I just wish I knew the sequence of events that led to him starting, and how he… finished without being stopped.
Better yet – after dry humping and then ejaculating on one toy, Mr. Meader was still free to put it back on the shelf, select another, and commit the indecent act once again! No-one stopped the man until he was arrested, after his second desecration.
