Now this is what I call winning.
Dude in Stamford, Conn., came out at least even Tuesday in a mid-haircut scissor fight, according to police, then absolutely, positively kicked ass with the mug shot. Ladies and gentlemen, in this corner, the po-po Polaroid winner and new world champion . . . DA-viiiiiiiiiiiiiid DAVIS!
And the crowd goes wild.
The newly dethroned mug shot cham-peen, Omaha's own Nick Nolte, could not be reached for comment. Let's just say, though, that Los Angeles-area police are on the lookout for his car being operated in an erratic manner in the wake of the new champ's crowning.
The actual coronation has been postponed while authorities try to fashion a crown that will fit over Davis' new 'do.
LET'S GO NOW to the tale of the tape, as printed in the Stamford Advocate:
A 21-year-old man sitting down for a haircut allegedly grabbed scissors and slashed another in the back Tuesday in the South End, police said.
David Davis, of Cedar Hill Avenue, New Haven, was arrested shortly after the incident when Stamford patrol officers and a police dog found him in a nearby Henry Street apartment. Officers took him into custody when they initially found he was wanted on a warrant for failing to appear in court and later charged him in the stabbing after an investigation, Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin said.
The victim, identified as a 21-year-old Stamford man, was taken to Stamford Hospital to receive treatment for his wound. Davis is being held on $5,000 bond and is due in court March 22.
In a statement, police said Davis was getting a haircut at 126 Henry St. when the victim approached in what Davis called an "aggressive manner," so he picked up scissors to protect himself. Davis slashed the man in the back, police said.
