    Considering they found slightly burned e-cig batteries in his pocket, what I think is more likely is that he staged the event with e-cig batteries. They are notorious for “venting,” becoming over-heated due to shorting (like from contact with a bunch of change in the pocket) and bursting into flame. Since his client’s defense was “spontaneous combustion” of the car, it makes sense he would go that route.

      Interesting theory. I have no knowledge of e-cigs or their various components beyond the people that “vape” tend to get very preachy about it. Vegan level preachy.

      It’s still a dumbass stunt. And his pants are ruined.

    Hmm, I mentioned to mean-ass editor yesterday that you should write about this. Coincidence?

      Complete coincidence. Plus the title was the best dumb joke of them all.

        Shh. Let Jim think it was all him. It’s a mitzvah to be kind to the aged.
