Ex-wife hog-ties Florida man, drags him behind truck: police
Reuters ^ | 1-10-13 | By Barbara Liston

ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - A Florida man's ex-wife used a stun gun on him, tied him to a truck bumper and dragged him for half a mile before he escaped, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office reported.

Robert Hall, 54, remained in the surgical intensive care unit on Thursday at Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, where he was being treated for a broken pelvis, broken facial bones and bleeding in his brain, according to the sheriff's office.

The attack took place in a rural part of New Smyrna Beach, a popular Florida resort town, where Hall typically stayed at the home of his ex-wife, Jeanette Morris, 61, while she was away working as a truck driver.

Morris suspected that Hall had allowed his girlfriend in the house and arranged for a deputy to escort her when she returned to her home Tuesday night in order to avoid a confrontation, the sheriff's report said. The deputy left the house after Morris told him she would spend the night at her brother's house.

My wife was great. It was the inlaws I wanted to drag behind a truck. then back over. Then run over. Then do bleach burnouts on. Then set on fire. Probably best that ‘they are there’ and I am here’.

Read where they closed in 1977. Wish it was earlier and would have saved me from buying a leisure suit. All in all it didn't look too bad as leisure suits go.

Lucky for him he wasn't arrested for a drug problem in Obama’s America. Being drug behind a truck.

"drags him behind truck:"

Don't get me started on all the redundancies that waste our precious time and energy every day. How could she drag him in front of the truck, huh?!

If you compare their photos, they look eerily similar:

And I love the last two paragraphs:

"I was just sitting in my living room, I had a gentleman walk up on my front porch. He's in his underwear, he's all bloody, he's got a rope around his neck," the caller said.

"He was claiming that somebody was trying to kill him and just about that time there was a pick up truck coming down the road. It kind of caught me real off guard."

I’m thinking someone’s family tree didn’t branch.

“Do you take your sister to be your lawfully wedded wife”

“S3!t yea lets’d git’er done!”

“I now pronounce you brother and wife...er, Husband and sister...er....ah... Oh hell where’s the shine, I need a drink”

Another media redundancy, “a dead body” was found in the alley, etc.

Why can’t they ever find a “live body”?

I love the “Tree Branch” joke.

In some cases, some family’s lines fell out of the tree.

Old joke:

“If a man and woman get married in Arkansas, can they still be brother and sister?”

These two are 61 and 54, respectively? I had them figured for their 80s for sure. Meth. It’s a wonder drug.

The 1400 comments on the article are the best ever! LOL!

It's way over that now, but you're right.

Thanks. I needed the laugh.

You may have something going there.

She (he or it) was a truck driver too.

That thing is so ugly that even Laz would not touch it...and that is as bad as it gets.

That gruesome twosome are the ex-wife and her brother, so they should look related.

Here's the entire gleesome threesome:

Why not?

The wife and I have done worse to each other.

No, that is a goiter, not enough iodine. Her very deteriorated skin indicates a Vitamin C deficiency. She is just malnourished.

Thanks for identifying the photos. The website I went to didn’t label them and I assumed the man was her ex.
