You Got Some 'Splainin' To Do
FLORIDA FREAK FILE
Florida NEVER EVER fails to provide the best/worst news stories.
Case in point; A Florida man, Bradley Gellert (pictured), was arrested last night for allegedly choking his wife during an argument in their Tampa-area home. Gellert's wife subsequently fled the couple's Apollo Beach home and went to a nearby sheriff's office to report the incident. Investigators noted that the woman had been "taken to the ground by the arrestee and suffered an abrasion to her knee and red marks on her neck." The part of this story that's sad but highly comedic in it's use of irony is Gellert was wearing an "I ♥ My Marriage" shirt. Uh Huh. It was a promotional item tied to the 2008 movie "Fireproof," a Christian-themed film starring Kirk Cameron. The movie centers on a fireman's religious awakening and his simultaneous effort to save a failing marriage.
If only life imitated art in this case.
Until Next Time.
