OK, this just keeps getting stranger and stranger.
And more and more fun.
In the fantastic case of Redskins tight end Fred Davis vs. the celebrity broker, Davis admitted in court he was at a nightclub the night before a Redskins home game.
Davis is representing himself in this exceptional lawsuit filed by Makini Chaka, who claims Davis busted her lip and dumped juice on her head, which led to a restraining order.
In a document Davis submitted, he wrote that “on or around Saturday, December 3, 2012, I attended a party hosted by Promoter Eric Taylor at Cafe Asia located at 1720 I Street, NW, Washington, D.C., 20006.”
Unless he showed up in a DeLorean, that date is five months from now, which prompted the following exchange in court, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post:
Chaka: What’s the date of today?
Davis: I don’t know what today is. All I know is I had court today.
Chaka: You don’t know what today’s date is? His document is not even valid.
Davis: What are you talking about? . . .
Chaka: Well, according to your statement, to bullet No. 5, it says that this event happened December 3rd, 2012.
Davis: Okay, and, what about it?
Chaka: Has December 3rd, 2012 even happened yet?
Chaka: What? That’s the same thing I’m saying, Mr. Davis.
Davis: It was a misprint. Okay, December 3rd, 2011, okay, great.
On December 4, 2011, Davis played in a 1 p.m. home game against the New York Jets. Caught six passes for 99 yards. A feat made more impressive if he was in a club in the hours before, at a party which was scheduled to last from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Fortunately, Davis does not employ a lawyer who would prevent him from making such a declaration in court. The way this is going, we fully expect his attorney to use the “Chewbacca Defense” in the coming days. It’s the only appropriate closing.
