Well a guy named Dirty Dick Slater going to jail probably doesn't surprise a lot of people.
He wrestled through the 70's, 80's, and 90's for many promotions both big and small. What's more remarkable than his in ring career is the stuff that happened outside of it.
In the early 1980's Slater was actually shot during a bar fight. By who you may ask? Another fellow wrestler by the name of Wahoo McDaniel.
During an altercation in a Tampa bar, someone had made a comment about Tommy Rich's wife and had grabbed a knife. Wahoo had no intentions of being scalped so he said the hell with it and grabbed a gun.
Wahoo pistol-whipped the man, and as he did the gun went off shooting Dirty Dick. When police arrived, Slater said, "A sniper got me."
Wow! It doesn't get much more F-d up than that, or does it.
The mug pictured above is from his 2004 arrest for stabbing his girlfriend with a butcher's knife. Yep, I said butcher's knife.
Evidently ol' Dicky was all hopped up on morphine and oxy's when his girlfriend must have pissed him off. He doesn't recall what sparked his rage or what even happened. He has been quoted as saying,
"It was all drug related... most of it all. I couldn't tell you what happened."
He was sentenced to one year's house arrest and 2 years probation for the offense. I guess when your named Dirty Dick you can get away with stabbing someone with a butcher's knife.
I think this mug says tortured chef that ended up never learning to cook and taking it out on his ol' lady with the knife he so desperately wanted to use for something useful...
