You can’t even make this stuff up. Jenny Peak, 33 of Chicago beat herself up on a $12 bet from her stepfather. When police arrived at the residence she was hitting herself in the head with a crowbar, punching herself in the stomach and chest and bouncing off the walls. Officers had to take her down with a stun gun to stop the beating, of herself, by herself.
The stepfather is of course going to pony up the $12 for the bet. Nice guy. What he won’t be doing is paying the $4,000 in medical bills. You know for the fractured skull and missing teeth. To add salt to the wounds he is also having her charged with felony property damage for broken table.
