Ohio lawyer & a feces filled pringles can. No not Fla Man

To start, I am never picking up any Pringle can, ever.

Source-https://www.courtnewsohio.gov/cases/2023/SCO/1129/230741.asp


snip-"The Supreme Court of Ohio today suspended a Noble County criminal defense attorney for one year, with six months stayed, for throwing a Pringles potato chip can filled with his feces into the parking lot of the county’s crime-victim advocacy center.

In a divided per curiam opinion, the Supreme Court found Jack A. Blakeslee engaged in conduct that adversely reflects on his fitness to practice law. Blakeslee claimed he was not targeting anyone with his antics but had a habit of placing his waste in Pringles cans and randomly throwing them from his car as he traveled down the road.


snip-"Carpenter Wilkinson saw Blakeslee throw the can out of his car and discovered the can with his waste. She then left for the courthouse to attend the pretrial hearing for Wells. Later that day, she discussed the matter with the prosecutor assigned to the Wells case and filed a report with the Cambridge Police Department."


snip-"Blakeslee explained that he threw the cans to “blow off steam” and that he got a kick out of imagining the “look of surprise” on the faces of those who found the Pringles cans. Blakeslee did not attempt to establish that he had a mental disorder to mitigate any sanction he might face and denied his acts were related to his PTSD. He agreed his behavior was not normal and stated, “There has to be something going on that’s related to some of the things I went through in early life.”



More there.


Damn it Ohio

That's some serious "you kiddin' man" stuff right there.

What's missing however, and enquiring minds want to know, is if those Pringles cans were naturally packed or hand packed. The answer adds a whole new dimension to this one.

Ohio...sheesh...and I get to say that !!!
