Man who amputated arm arrested on assault charges
« on: December 09, 2013, 10:52:19 AM »
β€” A man who cut off his forearm to free himself after becoming trapped by a dislodged boulder in a Utah canyon is in jail after being arrested in Denver over allegations of domestic violence.

Aron Ralston was booked Sunday on charges of assault and "wrongs to minors," which involves exposing a minor to danger. Court records show a woman, Vita Shannon, also was arrested at the same home on the same charges.

Messages left with prosecutors and Ralston's publisher, Simon & Schuster, weren't returned.

Ralston was hiking in 2003 when he became trapped and cut off his arm to free himself. He detailed his struggles in a book, which was adapted into the movie "127 Hours."

Booking documents don't indicate if Ralston or Shannon has an attorney. Both are scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Guys just need to stay away from women.

They have the upper-hand and they know it.

Here I thought he was arrested for assaulting himself. :silly:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
