  • Christopher Elders; Are those hickeys on his neck?
We're not sure which film Christopher Elders is the bigger fan of: Boys Don't Cry, in which Hillary Swank's character pretends to be someone she's not in order to bed high-school girls, or Dazed and Confused, in which Matthew McConaughey's character waxes about the thrill of bedding high-school girls half his age.

Actually, it seems Elders is an equal fan of both movies -- at least according to the account given by the St. Louis County police department. Yesterday police arrested the 30-year-old Elders for statutory sodomy, saying he posed as a 17-year-old in order to entice a 14-year-old girl into having sex.

Elders, of Affton, allegedly met the girl at a "sporting event" (high-school football game?) a few weeks back and exchanged telephone numbers with her after convincing the teenager he was just 17.
On Monday, October 5, Elders went to the girl's home when she was alone and there allegedly engaged in sexual acts with her. Elders was busted when one of the girl's parents arrived home, and he then admitted lying about his age.

It gets worse. Police believe Elders may have lied about his age before and ask that anyone with information about other offenses involving Elders to contact them at 314-889-2341.

The moral of this story, girls? Don't always trust your Elders.

Then again, you know what they say about high-school girls...
