In a bizarre case, a Colorado man is suing the newlywed couple he kidnapped for breach of contract, claiming they agreed to hide him for money after he crashed a stolen vehicle into their yard, then held them at knifepoint.
Above: what a maroon.
In his lawsuit, 25-year-old Jessie Dimmick of Aurora, contends that after breaking into Jared and Lindsay Rowley’s Topeka-area home while fleeing police, he and the couple reached a legally binding, oral contract that they would hide him for an unspecified amount of money. Dimmick, who is representing himself, is seeking $235,000.
He complains that he ended up getting shot by police as a result.
I can only think of one lawsuit more frivolous than this in recent memory.
Oh — and I plan to have a lot more to say about that one.
My hint to you: at least Dimmick didn’t perjure himself.
Hat tip to . . . you know who you are.
