The Best Excuse Ever


Leave it to a lawyer to come up with one of the top ten excuses of all time. This excuse is truly a work of art. Before I get to it let me give you some background. Did you ever watch Diddily Piddily's show Making The Band? I remember watching it the first year and saying, "What the hell happen to O-Town?" Then I watched it the second and third year and said, "Wait, isn't this the same damn people they had on the show last year? How many seasons does it take to make a damn band?"

Anyway, Sara Stokes was on one of those seasons. I want you to take a look at the mug shot on top of the post. It looks like Sara had the crap beaten out of her right? According to the police though, what happened was that Sara and her husband were arguing in front of their three kids. Sara decided she had enough and left the house. As she was leaving she actually tripped and fell down some stairs and did that to her face. Seriously. She then decided she would accuse her husband of it despite the fact he didn't do it. Oh, and for good measure while their kids watched she grabbed a knife and stabbed her husband in the arm.

When the cops came they arrested Sara and charged her with assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. The district attorney is deciding whether to press charges.

So, are you ready for the excuse of the year? This is how Sara's lawyer explains what happened. "Sara and Tony have a very passionate and loving relationship that on August 2, while having an evening of fun, she slipped and fell, hitting her head heavily on the ground and somehow in the process of helping her Tony got injured."

Yeah, I can see it now. Tony, while slicing some tomatoes looks through the front window and sees Sara fall to the ground. He rushes to her aid and is in such a hurry he doesn't set down the knife. As he pulls her up the knife falls from his hand. Sara grabs it and as Tony pulls her up Sara slips and as she attempts to regain her balance stabs Tony in the arm with the knife.

Yeah, I could see that.

LOL Karmen.

I was thinking that, in a loving relationship, having a fun evening always ends in a stabbing and multiple injuries if its a really really good time.

Her lawyer is a frustrated fiction writer, who went to law school to to pay the bills, while waiting for his book to be published.

Why not just say she blacked out after falling down the stairs and didn't remember stabbing him?

He should write fiction. I agree with mikey.

They could have use the excuse she was sleep walking LOL.

Her husband must be scared shitless of his wife to try to get her from being charged with attempted murder or whatever they are going to charged her with.
