Marine reservist Jasen Bruce was getting clothes out of the trunk of his car Monday evening when a bearded man in a robe approached him.The Few. The Proud. The Terminally Stupid. Brave 6'3" clown with a tire iron beats up on a priest.
That man, a Greek Orthodox priest named Father Alexios Marakis, speaks little English and was lost, police said. He wanted directions.
What the priest got instead, police say, was a tire iron to the head.
I'll bet that this story plays really well in Greece, too. From reading the various articles on this crime, it would appear that the next guy who should be beaten with a tire iron is Bruce's lawyer.
