You gotta feel sorry for this sad sonuvab*tch. His name is David Jonathan Winkelman and he just got arrested in Davenport, Iowa, for failing to appear in court over a misdemeanor charge for operating a motor vehicle without the owner's consent. That's not the part of this story that sucks, however.
The part that sucks is his publicly available mugshot, above, which reveals to the world (via The Smoking Gun) that he's the idiot who in late 2000 tattooed a tribute to a local radio station on his forehead. A disc jockey had allegedly promised to give the first listener a six-figure sum if he or she showed up at the radio station with a permanent tattoo of the station's call letters and logo on his forehead.
Of course, when the men came calling for the cash, station brass explained that the offer was a practical joke, just a wacky radio stunt. Winkelman and his relative sued, claiming that the station sought to have listeners permanently marked so that they “could be publicly scorned and ridiculed for their greed and lack of common good sense."
Within months of the lawsuit’s filing, Winkelman dismissed his complaint against the DJ and Cumulus Broadcasting, KORB’s owner. Goddard’s case was later dismissed by a judge when he failed to appear for court proceedings.
Bottom line is that even if you're having a bad day, or you didn't do well on a test or work assignment, or your girl blue-balled you this morning, at least you're not this f*cking guy.
UPDATE: I've been trying to remember who that guy's face (other than the tattoo) reminded me of, and the first commenter nailed it: the bitter beer face guy. He also looks like one of our old interns.
