Fond du Lac, Wisconsin man claimed to police that a "ghost" strangled, committed assault and battery on his wife. No, that is not a misprint. A poltergeist type of ghost apparently also resisted arrest and was charged with disorderly conduct. The ghost in this report appears to be none other than Michael West, the husband of the unfortunate woman in this report. Mr. West stated at first his wife suffered the injuries due to a "series of falls." After police pointed out the marks around his wife's neck, he said a "ghost" did it. The police decided they had heard enough and arrested Michael West for domestic assault.
I'm not trying to make light of domestic abuse. It is no laughing matter. What is funny is that some idiots will do and say anything to try to escape arrest these days. That is especially true in domestic abuse cases. So, will Mr. West get leniency on this domestic abuse charge? I don't think he has a ghost of a chance. Pun intended.
