Wow. Lot's of candidates for Daily RFT's weekly Ass Clown award. Good luck voting. I predict a tight one this week.
And the nominees are...
1. Father charged with attacking shopkeeper to defend honor of his shoplifting daughter -- Remember this one from late last week? An employee at Claire's in South County Mall busted a 17-year-old girl stealing a necklace. The next day the
thief's father visited the mall where he and an accomplice allegedly held down, punched and kicked the sales clerk.
2. Adam Dylan Leon -- The Canadian flight student who stole a plane and flew it all the way to Missouri, prompting National Guard fighters to intercept the plane. Leon apparently wanted the fighter jets to shoot him down. He now faces federal charges of entering the U.S. illegally.
