Announcing the WilliamTSherman 2016 Muncie Person of the Year award. This contest will take place right here in this thread. Members will be asked to submit their candidates (as many as you like). Link to the news story, attach a picture if you want, and summarize your candidates qualifications and acheivements in a few bullet points. (See next post for an example) The judging panel will consist of me, myself and I, and the winner will be determined at the end of 2016.
After some thought, I have decided to allow candidates from "Greater Muncie" - which I define as Henry, Randolph, Jay and Blackford Counties. New Castle, in particular, seems to punch well above its weight in moronic criminality and general scurviness, and is a serious threat to produce a winner.

Jason Leon “Lumpy” Smith - Criminal Mastermind
*His nickname is "Lumpy"
*His claim of innocence and non-involvement in the crime was somewhat compromised due to his state-issued ID being found lying in the plate full of meth
*Running out of the house to escape police, he left his closet meth lab on fire.
*Has some very interesting ideas about morality and the law "He also said 'back in the day, (Smith) took an oath when he was purchasing drugs to never snitch... (which he believes is) a federal offense,' Popp wrote."
"Authorities received a report of a person “doing gymnastics” – later specified as cartwheels – on Ind. 109 near the Interstate 70 interchange about 3 a.m. Sunday. A test measured his level of intoxication at 0.17 percent, more than twice the legal limit for motorists in Indiana."
Interstate tumbling with a .17 BAC is worthy of consideration.
" Muncie police say a dispute over a woman’s preference for waffles over pancakes turned violent, leading to her boyfriend’s arrest.
Breion Donte Thomas, 24, of the 4500 block of West Bethel Avenue, was arrested Monday on preliminary charges of strangulation, interference with the reporting of a crime, battery resulting in injury and criminal confinement.
According to a police report, Thomas’ alleged victim said he “made her some pancakes for breakfast” on Saturday and “became angry” when she said she wanted waffles instead.
The woman told officers Thomas shoved her several times, punched her in the back of the head, threw her onto a bed and held her down, and “strangled me with my shirt.” He also allegedly took his accuser’s cellphone to prevent her from calling for help.
The Muncie man — with no prior convictions, according to local court records — was released from the Delaware County jail after posting a $15,000 bond."
"He just jumped in front of my truck, and he was naked and I thought it was a prank or something," Bullock told the Star Press. "I was honking at him, and he started ramming his head into my front bumper over and over again."
Bullock had found Latham at a bad time during his night, which started at about 9 p.m. when he allegedly climbed an electricity pole in Muncie, In. Cops were called to the scene, but Latham escaped them by running down the street.
That's when he found Bullock.
The driver got out of his truck to help the disturbed man, but took off when Latham started running toward him.
"I just ran away, not thinking he was going to hop in my truck," Bullock told the paper.
Latham did, and allegedly took off in the stolen vehicle, driving straight through the front door of a home at 50 mph.

I'm going to limit this thread to its original stated purpose with the most ruthless and extreme severity. However if one of you wants to start a separate Muncie HOF, I will pay all costs associated with starting the new thread.

I'm thinking there is a good chance of a controversy at the end of the year because of my decision to allow Henry County into this contest. New Castle residents are a serious threat to win and that could lead to hard feelings from actual Muncie residents.
"Billie J. Mossman, 47, was arrested this week after police were called to a disturbance at Glenwood Trailer Park. She and her alleged victim at first tried to persuade police the man’s facial injuries had been caused by a dog."
Putting the blame on a poor dog...very low class.
"She instead continued to scream, he said, telling the policemen she would call their chief and they would be demoted to “parking duty.”"
Because...you know... drug-abusing, violent, spitting women from trailer parks typically have a lot of pull with the Police Chief
"Mossman allegedly struggled with officers when taken into custody, calling one “fat (and) bald”"
I'll cut her some slack here, a lot of cops are both fat and bald.
"The officer wrote that once inside his vehicle, Mossman tried to headbutt his laptop computer, then began spitting, with spittle striking his face, gun holster and the interior of his squad car."
Spitting is nasty and blaming the dog was low class, but head butting an innocent laptop is really disgusting behavior.

I'm nominating, not the abuser, but rather the one unnamed victim.
MUNCIE – Police say a witness with a cellphone recorded a Muncie man’s physical abuse of his wife. Jason Carl Carter, 35, was arrested Friday on two counts of domestic battery, also accused of battering the woman who documented his behavior.
The woman who recorded the violence explained that she gave birth to Carter’s child several years ago. She said she was allowing Carter and his wife to live with her “while they work on their marriage,” the officer wrote.
Strange that such a solid, well-thought-out domestic situation could go wrong. Even more strange that no meth production items were reported to be found in the house.
