News: SC Man Beats Disabled Man With His Own Prosthetic Leg

What? Not Florida?
South Carolina Man Arrested For Beating Disabled Man With His Own Prosthetic Leg

June 17, 2013

A disabled South Carolina man was pushed off a moped and then beaten with his own prosthetic leg by an assailant who was arrested early today for assault, cops charge.

According to a Myrtle Beach Police Department report, Jeffrey Johnson was riding his moped when Joel Parrish, 35, pushed him off the vehicle. “Once the victim hit the ground his prosthetic leg came off,” cops noted.

While Johnson, 43, was on the ground, Parrish allegedly “began to kick and punch” him, investigators allege.

“The suspect also picked up the subject’s prosthetic leg and hit him with it several times.”

Johnson, who was interviewed by police at a local hospital, suffered a laceration above his right eye that required stitches.

Parrish, seen in the above mug shot, was booked this morning into the Myrtle Beach jail on a felony assault count.

  1. Wow, that's pretty low, and the poor guy didn't have a leg to stand on! :)

  2. I once knew a guy who thought having a wooden leg meant he could be a huge asshole jerk to everyone and get away with it. When someone took his wooden leg and smacked him with it we all laughed our asses off. The guy was really asking for it but no one was ever drunk enough to kick his ass until that night.
