The Wedgie Made Me Do It

Meet Daniel Strouss.

The 19-year-old Pennsylvania man is facing an attempted murder charge for allegedly shooting a friend who once gave him a "wedgie" during a rock concert.

Prosecutors say Strouss shot his buddy Eric Kossoway on June 12, after holding a grudge for months (details of Strouss's supposed motive emerged during an August 22 court hearing).

According to Strouss, Kossoway sneaked up on him during the concert and violently yanked on his underwear, an action one prosecution source referred to as a "credit card swipe" in a TSG interview. (2 pages)
