The Woes of David Elton…

Good evening Netizens...

Gee, and if you wondered why your e-mail INBOX has been so quiet all of a sudden, one of our favorite sources of local electronic entertainment may be out of commission for awhile.

David Elton, ostensibly one of Spokane's finest gold-plated gadabouts and according to Joe Shogun, perhaps no longer on our Council President's personal Christmas Card list, is in jail again. This time, instead of a short-term visitation with Spokane's finest, he is currently in the Clackamas, Oregon County Jail charged with assaulting his wife, Belinda. According to his wife, this time he possibly will not be able to pick and choose between local attorneys at will, since he has been informed by his parents that he may be stuck this time with a Public Defender.

I wonder if anyone has bothered to inform the local probation office, since unless my memory is short-circuited, I do believe he is on probation here in Spokane, the result of his most-recent brush with the law.

Stay tuned. It may be interesting to see how this all plays out.
