The Nation's Most Trusted Bail Bond Agents

Amish Gone Wild...the Saga Continues From Jail

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

amishMost of us think of the Amish as a peaceful hard working people riding their horse drawn buggies down idyllic county roads.  The last thing we think of are gangs of beard cutting zealots terrorizing the neighborhood.  Well I hate to break it to you but the latter example is the one making the headlines again.

Sam Mullet, yep I am not making this up, his last name is Mullet, was denied a bail bond for a second time.  Both a federal judge in Cleveland and an appellate court in Cincinnati ruled that Mr. Mullet will remain in jail without bail.  Mullet (damn I love saying that) is charged in a series of beard-chopping attacks last year.  As you may or may not know, beards are kind of a sacred thing amongst Amish men, and cutting someone's beard off is the ultimate insult and sign of disgrace. 

I think that this story might go down in history as the ultimate ironic crime...a guy named "Mullet" stuck in jail without a chance for a bail bond, for cutting off beards, or as I like to refer to them as, face mullets.  Read the story below.
