I'm no stranger to weird nights drinking at various Grand Rapids establishments and I hear a ton of messed up crap! This is one of those tales. It's another edition of From the Bar Stool. So before I start this one, let me just say the dudes I was drinking with last week told me the cops said they don't know why this guy did this, they don't know if he was all wacked out on drugs, of if he had some sort of bi-polar mental breakdown or what. All they know is it happened and it’s horrible!

These drunk dudes told me about a 39 year old North Carolina guy that shows up at his 58 year old mothers house, grabs her, throws her against the wall and then ties her hands and feet up with duct tape, and then beats her in the chest and in the head with a baseball bat! Yes, his own mother! Then he goes thru her purse, takes all her money and her debit card, and then he grabs her car keys and starts to head out the door. But hold on, its gets worse! The guys said just as he's headed out the door, he stops and turns around and goes back into the kitchen, grabs a steak knife and then cuts his moms left ear completely off! Then he takes off and leaves his mom there, tied up, unconscious, earless, and laying in a pool of her own blood! 9 hours later the mom wakes up and was somehow able to call 911. A few hours later cops arrest the guy, charge him with attempted murder, kidnapping, and a couple other charges, and now I guess if the guy is convicted he's facing life in prison. Which if you ask me, is not nearly enough punishment for doing that to your nice little old mom! That’s another dude I hope gets murdered in prison.
