According to a January 18 criminal complaint filed in court 41-year-old Michael West and his spouse got into an argument on Sunday that turned violent. The victim told police that her husband twice strangled her, and that he also punched her in the face after she tried to contact 911.
When police arrived at the residence, the female victim had a bloody nose as well as facial bruising. During routine police questioning, West originally claimed his wife sustained injuries to her face and neck during several repeated falls. When pressed by the police, who pointed out scratches and marks on the woman’s neck, the drunken West quickly altered his story. “A ghost did it,” he suddenly claimed.
Needless to say, the Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, police didn't feel the need to conduct a seance to prove the man wasn't telling the truth. West was arrested on charges of strangulation, domestic battery, drunken and disorderly conduct, as well as resisting arrest.
