Headbutting a Priest is Not Cool, Man (Updated)


Update: 49-year-old William Horning was sentenced to two years and nine months for headbutting a priest, among other transgressions less egregious than headbutting a priest. Well, he also hit two Cleveland cops with a car on his getaway from St. Georges Church last February, which is up there in the crime stratosphere, as well. (WOIO)


Strangest crime story emanating from Cleveland today: cops say a man who had already collected $27,000 from the Annunciation of Greek Orthodox Church in Tremont for work he never completed came back asking for more money and more work.

When the priest said no and said he was going to call the police, our gentleman, who is apparently not a god-fearing criminal, headbutted and punched the priest. This is the sort of stuff St. Peter doesn't take lightly, and neither do the cops.

Oh, there's more. When two undercovers showed up, the dirtbag ran into him with a car, according to 19 Action News.

Cops are looking for the suspect right now. They might want to check Rainbow Babies and Children. He's probably over there punching kids in the face.
