A pounded pony and a punctured pal.
What you see above is Perry Palm’s (the pony pounder)
shiny new Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca Edition (the bossest of the Boss’s), which he wrapped around at tree this past Sunday. Perry was hanging out at barbeque in Menominee Falls, Wisconsin enjoying many beers when he decided to show his buddy what his track-tuned ‘Stang could do. Unfortunately for his pal, that involved airbag deployment and a broken bone sticking out of his right arm.
Here’s what happened according to the Menominee Falls Patch:
According to the criminal complaint, Perry Palm, 35, was drinking with a friend at a cookout Sunday in the S8200 block of Elm Lane when they decided to go for a drive in his Mustang. Palm took the car up to 70 miles per hour, slid through a curb and hit a parked Jeep Grand Cherokee, causing the driver’s side door and several wheels and tires to come off the Mustang.
The passenger in the car had to be taken to Community Memorial Hospital after suffering a compound fracture in his right arm.
Mr. Palm has been charged with one count of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and causing injury and one count of reckless driving and causing injury. He could end up getting two years in Waukesha County Jail and fines up to $2,000. Palm should consider himself lucky – instead of a court date it could’ve been a date with Darwin.
The takeaway here? Don’t drink and drive kids, and don’t get in the car with someone who’s impaired. And if you do, make sure their dad has an ultimate set of tools.
