Now this isn’t funny so don’t you dare laugh but a Oklahoma man died from getting a wedgie.
If it makes for any sort of consolation, it was the atomic wedgie. Nah? O.K., then.
Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth says that Brad Davis allegedly gave his stepfather Denver Lee St. Clair a wedgie during an altercation which caused him blunt trauma to the head and his eventual demise from suffocation. There are always plenty of bizarre ways to go out, but this is indeed a special case.
The altercation happened on December 21 and Davis told investigators it was all in the act of self-defense.

Booth said Davis told investigators that he went to his stepfather’s residence and his stepfather “jumped him.”
St. Clair had a head wound and appeared to have been in a fight. The underwear St. Clair was wearing had been pulled up his back and over his head, leaving the waistband around his neck. Booth said it was the first time he had ever heard of someone being killed by a pair of underwear.
The cause of death has been ruled a homicide.
No word on what brand of underwear St. Clair was wearing but the manufacturer should step forward to champion their brand’s durability. Just saying.
