Wedgies are never pleasant!  But, I have never heard of anything like this before.

If you've ever been on the receiving end of an ATOMIC WEDGIE, they're not pleasant.  That's where the wedgie is so powerful, the waistband actually makes it the whole way over your HEAD.

Well, late last month, 58-year-old Denver St. Clair of McLoud, Oklahoma received what might be the most devastating wedgie of all time.

Four days before Christmas, on December 21st, Denver's 33-year-old stepson Brad Davis showed up at his house.  Brad's a former Marine, and they started fighting about Brad's mom, who'd previously accused Denver of domestic abuse.

 

During the fight, Brad grabbed Denver's underwear, yanked them up over his head in an atomic wedgie . . . and it KILLED HIM.  According to the coroner, Denver died of asphyxiation from being strangled by the waistband.  Blunt force trauma played a role too.

 

According to Sheriff Mike Booth, the underwear was still over Denver's head when police got to the scene.  And Davis actually used the term "atomic wedgie" while explaining what happened.

Davis claims Denver attacked HIM, and the wedgie was self-defense.  But he was arrested on Tuesday, and it's been ruled a homicide.  (NewsOK.com)
