No this is not a frat brother dead after drinking too much on his 21st birthday but the level of stupidity is close. John ‘Fatboy’ Powell dies after accepting $5 from Tiffany Startz to punch him in the face. The resulting punch led to his death and now there’s a debate over whether or not it was a criminal act. Clearly the intent was not to kill him and with all respect to John’s mother, I do not think she should be charged. She did not walk up to him completely out of the blue and assault him. There was no heated argument; if anything there was a business agreement. She paid him five dollars to punch him in the face, something he agreed to.
I think that is an important distinction. He agreed, and accepted money, allowing her to punch him in the face.
