But that's not the fun part. No. According to Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald, Bridges' trial looked ready made for The Jerry Springer Show.
Jeremy Bridges gets convicted of assault for pointing a gun at a stripper ("entertainer") who was arguing with one of his buddies. Bridges didn't want his pal talking to her, in part because, as she testified in court: "I don't even date men."
Then the entertainter's uncle takes the stand wearing a sleeveless black dress and high-heeled shoes -- looking like Tina Turner but sounding like Ike -- followed by her pregnant ex-girlfriend.
Y'know, if you're looking for a good character witness, there's nothing better than a man in drag, is there? You won't find a judge in North Carolina who wouldn't find that witness entirely credible. No, sir. I can't wait to see what ensemble he wears at Bridges' appeal in March.
