New Stupid Poker Criminals Hall of Fame Inductee: Terrence Davis
It’s been awhile since we’ve inducted someone into hallowed halls of our Stupid Poker Criminals Hall of Fame.
We almost inducted Steve Forte yesterday, but the alleged casino cheat with the shit-ass-grin is actually pretty smart.
For the SPCHoF, we like them really dumb. Chris Shilts kind of dumb. Or Deadbeat Dayne Baverman. Or Steve McCewan and Cindy Streets dumb. Or better yet, Greg Hogan, Jr. Now he was a dumb one.
And fitting the bill perfectly is Terrence Davis, a 36-year-old father of two who really is as dumb as he looks in the photo to the right. Davis was arrested yesterday for leaving his boys, ages 3 and 7, in a running vehicle while he played poker at St. Johns Greyhound Park just outside Jacksonville. The police were called to the scene after someone saw the pair in the car and security then paged Davis in the poker room where he said he had only played four or five hands. According to news reports, Davis was charged with child neglect and is being held on a $2,000 bond.
Now sure, we often say that your kids should never get in the way of you playing poker but you don’t leave the rugrats in a running vehicle outside a casino. Be a responsible father like Brad Pitt and Anne Heche’s ex Coley Lafoon and leave them with the nanny, and if you don’t have a nanny, see if the neighbors will watch the little ones for an hour or day or week or two.
