News Meanwhile in Spokane
posted by January 9 at 15:11 PMon
A man walks into a bar in Spokane, Washington.
The man proceeds to make rude remarks about another man in the same bar. The second man, fed up, hauls off and punches the first man in the face, causing the first man to fall backward and strike his head. This causes the first man to lose consciousness. The unconscious man has recently moved back to Spokane from Auburn with his 4-year-old daughter. His daughter’s mother, his ex, lives in Spokane. In an odd coincidence, his ex was on her way to the hospital for the birth of her brother’s baby—the story doesn’t indicate whether she was the one carrying her brother’s baby—while the bar fight transpired. She arrived at the hospital shortly after her ex did, moments before he died of his wounds but not, sadly, in enough time to make it to his room to say goodbye.
In a final, freakish twist, the dead man’s mother and sister have his 4-year-old daughter, and the girl’s mother tells police that they refuse to return the child to her only surviving parent (the woman who was at the hospital for the birth of her brother’s baby and the death of her ex).
The police have spoken to the man who threw the punch but they made no arrests.
