Fan is short for fanatic. I know that I have been guilty of being a fan… a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal. However, a story from an Indiana TV station has taken fandom to a criminal level.
An Indiana man (David Wilson) attacked his fiancée because she was “talking trash” about Nascar. According to the report, the fiancée called 911 during the Indianapolis 500, saying Wilson had gotten upset during a fight over whether the NASCAR circuit or IndyCar was better.
She told police that they had been drinking all day. She said that he got angry when he heard her and another person talking about IndyCar, and how it was better than NASCAR. Of course, this conversation was taking place in IndyCar territory, close to where the Indianapolis 500 race takes place each year.
Wilson did not deny some of the facts but denied others. He told police he was in the kitchen making dinner when he heard his fiancée and the other person “talking trash about NASCAR.” He said that he yelled into the room at both of them. However, he denied any kind of physical altercation.
The man also complained that he was “extremely upset” that no one in the house would help him with the household work. They were just out in that room talking about racing. Police arrested him on charges of domestic battery and strangulation.
No word on whether NASCAR or household chores will come in the way of their marriage going forward!
And for pic o’ day…
