Welcome to the OKC, Bitch
Oh, those crazy, crazy Oklahoma City nights.
The top aide in Oklahoma to Senator Jim Inhofe is hospitalized in fair condition after apparently being beaten, police said.
John Collison, 32, of Edmond has fractures to his face, pelvis, ribs and wrist plus an injured to his jaw and a liver contusion, according to Sgt. Paco Balderrama.
Paramedics found Collison about 4 a.m. Sunday lying on a loading dock outside Bricktown Ballpark in downtown Oklahoma City.
At the hospital, Collison told police he couldn't remember anything that happened after 10:30 p.m. Saturday -- not even being attacked.
If you name your nightlife district "Bricktown," you're just asking for shit like this to happen.
The AP says Collison wasn't robbed, so we must assume that an enraged constituent is to blame. It happens to congressional aides across the country every day. You're walking out of the ballpark when a gentleman of voting age asks you a pointed question about your boss' rider on the transportation omnibus bill, next thing you know, the debate's turned ugly and some guy's hurled the neighborhood's titular "brick" at your head while shouting himself hoarse about the Alternative Minimum Tax.
