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.

1. Don't get married. 2. If you do get married and get a divorce, don't bring your new girlfriend to stay at your ex-wifes house. 3. If you ignore 1 and 2, don't drink with people who may have ulterior motives toward the well being of your person.

If I’d have shot my ex when I first wanted to, I’d have been out by now.

David Allen Coe. "You Never Even Called Me By My Name".

It was my 8-track theme song for years and years.

From the comments below the article: American view: "MAN-O-Man Did any one else search Jeanette Morris Picture? She makes Granny on the Beverly hill Billy's look like a cold stone FOX !" and is it just me or does that woman have an Adam's apple?
