AND ON THE “LIGHTER SIDE!” As we mentioned last week, Ohio State Senator Jarrod Martin was charged with drunk driving and child endangerment, just another “normal week” for Ohio’s legislative body, at this point. But also fun! Martin is predictably no stranger to idiot middle-of-the-night run-ins with police. There is a litany of dumb facts about Martin’s drunken antics here, but our favorite is the one where his parents were forced to pick up Martin and his friends from a (probably nude gay wrestling) party in the middle of the night:
On May 16, 2010, the night manager at the Residence Inn in Beavercreek called police about guests yelling and fighting on the fifth floor at 4:30 a.m. Officers found Martin and six other men “highly intoxicated” at a bachelor party. The men said they weren’t fighting; just having a “friendly wrestling match in their hotel room,” a Beavercreek police report said.
Martin’s parents were called to pick up the men and their belongings, according to the police report. Police noted that the room was tidied up and not damaged.
