Ass Clown of the Week: An Ax, a Watermelon, a Dirty Teacher and a Naughty Video

Posted By on Fri, Jul 23, 2010 at 11:31 AM

UPDATE: Chad Garrison responds here with interviews of both attorneys in the Girls Gone Wild debate and a review of the actual film in question.

UPDATED AT 3:20 p.m. with a new nominee

What do these things have in common? You guessed it, they all involve Ass Clown of the Week nominees. This week's theme surrounds law and justice, with more than a few despicable and outrageous arrests and court cases wrapping up in the past seven days.

You know the rules, vote for the newsmaker whose words or actions you thought brought them the most shame this week: 

1. Brent Woody: Known to his students as the appropriately named  "Mr. Woody", the Parkway Central girl's basketball coach was arrested for allegedly having sex with two of his players.  

2. Darwin Holly: The southern Missouri man lost a court appeal last Friday, arguing that he should not have been fired from his job for referring to watermelon as "Obama fruit" while at a company picnic.

3. Jane Doe: The unnamed woman from St. Charles who lost her $5-million lawsuit vs. Girls Gone Wild this week for airing video of her topless. Doe was caught partially nude after someone pulled her shirt down at a nightclub on Laclede's Landing. A St. Louis jury ruled that although Doe did not verbally consent to appearing nude in the film, she asked for it by dancing and performing in front of GGW cameras.

4. Terry Madlock: The homeless man who tried to rob a south St. Louis fast-food restaurant this week -- with an ax

5. Chad Garrison: Daily RFT blogger, added due to popular demand. (See follow-up post here.)
