a bit of local News from tonight:

Beating with gold lame boot brings five-year term

The weapon was one gold lame boot. "The victim: An early-morning patron at a
French Quarter bar known for welcoming drag queens and their paramours.

The perpetrator: Walter Black, 41, of Belle Chasse, who had already racked up convictions for robbery and extorting some $10,000 from a priest he was having sex with and blackmailing in 2001.

Black's latest escapade has him headed back to prison. On Friday, an Orleans Parish judge sentenced him to five years for using his gold boot to beat a man outside the Double Play bar, 439 Dauphine St., at 3:37 a.m. Oct. 25, 2008....."

Oh, and this part was pretty good too:

"Black's sister also testified that her brother has a learning disability, and that his "lifestyle" began only after he started to come into New Orleans, where he was "influenced" by others. "

I mean really...how many times have we all heard that excuse before?

Read the rest here.

I know men who would pay good money to be beaten with a gold lame boot!

Handcuffed and indignant, Black lifted his red dress and began to urinate in the direction of Police Officer Brandon Ludwig, the police report says.

Being a cop has its occupational hazards.

It all depends on how high the heel was. Gold lame boots dont cut it unless the heel is at least 5 inches

Nothing like that ever happens in El Paso dammit!

Good God. The man needs medication, better friends and a bigger bladder. Too bad that priest wasn't a better influence.
