PALMETTO STATE “REPRESENTS …”
By FITSNEWS || It’s always a pleasure when our friends in New York City send us clips of the Palmetto State representing in the national media … and of course when we say “representing,” we mean providing the nation with a laugh at our expense.
This time it’s the story of 33-year-old Michael Gordon, 21-year-old Douglas Tench and 18-year-old Austin Adams – three men who gathered in a Spartanburg, S.C. hot tub to, um, enjoy one another’s company.
According to The New York Daily News, Tench came down from Charlotte, N.C. to hang out at a local gay club – where he met Gordon and Adams. The three wound up together in a hot tub which was located at – get this – a home where Gordon was “dog-sitting.”
In the hot tub the three men were reportedly kissing and “touching each other” when an argument erupted over whether Tench or Adams received a higher rate of pay for the provision of escort services.
No really …
Specifically Adams “became angry at Tench and assaulted him by punching and kicking him.” What … no slapping?
Adams initially claimed Tench threatened him with a knife but police “did not locate a knife at the home.”
Wow … only in South Carolina do we find residences with hot tubs, yet no knives.
Behold, our dramatis personae …
For those of you keeping score at home, Adams was arrested for assault while Gordon and Adams were arrested for providing alcohol to a minor. And yes, all of this was under the jurisdiction of the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office – which we’re sure had the Palmetto State’s honor and dignity in mind when it dropped the hammer on these three gentlemen.
UPDATE: Here’s the police report from this incident … must read stuff.
