Private clubs supposedly promote decency and etiquette. 'Course, like in real life, the member rosters usually include a fair amount of riff-raff. Surely the peeps at the Town & Country Missouri Athletic Club had that thought on the brain this fall after 59-year-old Michael Sansone and 45-year-old Brian McDonald got into a scrape in the men's sauna. Between the slurs that were hurled  ("faggot!") and the implements involved (razor, towel, nudity), it's lucky more blood wasn't shed. According to a police report, Sansone was breaking house rules by shaving in the sauna, much to the chagrin of McDonald. After the latter challenged the former on his actions, a fight ensued, security was summoned and yep, in came the blue-shirts. Tsk, tsk. In the end, neither fella wanted to prosecute the other.      

So who committed the year's dumbest crime? Find out on the next page.
