Believe it or not, there’s another Anthony Weiner out there.
This is not the scandal you think it is.
A different man named Anthony Weiner is in trouble with the law after a series of text conversations, and also has a history of issues associated with his marriage, The Salem News reports. But don’t worry–he isn’t running for office.
This second Anthony Weiner, a 25-year-old Massachusetts man who shares a name with embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, was arrested on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, assault and battery with the intent to intimidate and cause bodily injury, among others, according to a police brief in the Revere Journal. The Salem News reported Weiner’s arrest came after he assaulted a man who supposedly sent text messages to his wife.
What’s with these guys named Anthony Weiner and texting? Sheesh. Anyway, this guy and his family have some issues.
The alleged incident occurred at the house of Weiner’s mother, Darlene DeIorio, who was arrested and placed on a year of supervised probation after Weiner’s wedding reception at the Danversport Yacht Club in April 2012, where she went after the bride’s mother as Weiner fought on the floor with his new brother-in-law.
