A Colorado Man Used a Stuffed Owl Named "Solomon" as His Defense Attorney. It Was Not a Hoot.

I'm no legal expert, but something tells me this isn't exactly a great move for your case. From Arbroath:

Charles Abbott arrived at court in Aspen, Colorado, on Tuesday with a stuffed owl and placed it on the defence table in front of him. “He’s a very sensitive guy, has law degrees from Yale, Harvard and Stanford,” Abbott told Pitkin County Court Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely. “I think he’ll be able to represent me before a public defender comes online.” But the fluffy horned owl that Abbott called “Solomon,” had no influence on the hearing’s outcome. Fernandez-Ely casually ignored its presence when Abbott introduced it, and she moved along with the court’s business. Abbott’s court appearance was to address a protection order that took effect after he was accused of assaulting his former roommate, Michael Stranahan, at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting on May 9. Authorities again arrested Abbott, 67, on Saturday on suspicion of violating the court order by going to Stranahan’s home to collect some belongings.

It’s unclear how he expected this standoff to end, but this man definitely got what he deserved.

Watch as guy backs his truck up towards an alligator that is just minding its own business and ends up starting a fight that he isn’t going to win.

The beast begins snapping its massive jaws at the truck to make it crystal clear that he does not want to be bothered, but the man doesn’t listen.

“Hey watch my truck!” he says in the clip.

A few seconds later, it tears his bumper clean off the back of the vehicle to put an end to the nonsense.

Gator:1, Man: 0.
