Ass Clown of the Week: Angry Exes, Kings of Leon, Rotten Cops, Bogus Do-Gooders


You know what time it is kids!? It's time for Daily RFT's Ass Clown of the Week.

[Emoticon alert!!] Hopefully we can have as much fun today as we did last week! ;-) That was fun, wasn't it? :-(

This week's nominees...

1. Marilyn Cork: The area woman charged with running over her ex-boyfriend in the parking lot of the St. Louis County Courthouse after the two had just argued against each other in small-claims court. Cork may have been upset that her ex brought his new fiance to the hearing.

2. Kings of Leon: The rock band abruptly ended its show Friday night at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater after allegedly getting shit on by pigeons nesting in the rafters.

3. Leon Pullen: The former Uplands Park police officer who pleaded guilty to civil right violations for sexually assaulting and stealing from prostitutes while he was on duty.

4. Phillip Bandy: The founder of the Fulton-based Battered Mother's Resource Fund (BMRF) was told to shut down his operation this week by the Attorney General's office. The AG says that BMRF solicited donations but never implemented any of its programs and gave faulty information, telling mothers that other support centers would try to take their children away.
