Cry-Baby of the Week
The incident: A woman’s boyfriend wouldn’t stop singing the song “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore.
The appropriate response: Finding a boyfriend who is less lame.
The actual response: She attacked him.
Last Saturday, Samantha Malson (pictured above) spent the evening out drinking with her boyfriend Lars, to celebrate his 26th birthday.
According to Samantha, they’d spent a lot of the evening arguing because Lars had accused her of “consuming all the alcohol in the house.”
At some point during the evening, Lars put on “Thrift Shop” (ugh, this just sounds like the worst birthday ever).
In a statement to police, Samantha said that, once the song was over, Lars continued to sing the lyrics “over and over” and that she asked him to stop “25 times.”
Enraged, Samantha started to shove Lars, but he still wouldn’t stop singing the song. So she grabbed him by the throat and started to choke him (wait, now it’s the worst birthday ever).
This is when Samantha decided to call the police. Which is weird, because she was the one commiting a crime. I can only assume that she was calling the police to tell them that Lars wouldn’t stop singing “Thrift Shop”? Oh dear.
Unsurprisingly, they came and arrested her. And she was charged with domestic violence and harassment.
