Man With Crazy Face Tattoo Accused of Assault, Tells Police Dog Caused Woman's Bad Injuries

Categories: Crime

Michael Campbell.
It's hard to decide what's more bizarre: Michael Eugene Campbell's mugshot or the explanation he reportedly gave to police when he was accused of assaulting a woman.

First, take a good look at the mug to the right. Pretty weird, right? (Is that a bowtie!?)

Now, let's review the charges against the Springfield man. An official in Greene County tells Daily RFT that, according to a probable-cause statement, after an instance of domestic violence, Campbell last week was charged with one count of third-degree assault, a class A misdemeanor.

His account to police? The dog did it.

The terrible injuries the woman sustained, however, seem to tell a different story.

The statement says that a woman suffered visible injuries to her mouth and face, including a large cut inside her lip and swelling and purple bruising around her right eye. It's unclear what their relationship is.

"He said that she was playing with the dog and that she fell down and had injuries to her face," the official tells us, referencing the probable-cause statement.

He was charged last Tuesday.

"The victim said that he punched her numerous times and choked her until she almost became unconscious," the report adds.

It would seem that cops did not exactly buy his version of the story.

He was sent to a Greene County jail and does not have an attorney listed online.

And now for your viewing pleasure, a larger version of that mug.


And a closeup on the neck there, because, why not?

This guy has made the rounds for several years in the "look at this crazy mugshot" circles. Apparently he's a registered sex offender who's been picked up multiple times for various offenses. Regardless of his past, he seems to have some pretty solid decision-making skills, eh?

i love how the bow-tie adds just a little dash of whimsy.


Any chick who decides to date someone who looks like this probably has a screw loose to begin with.  Not that being stupid warrants a beating, but come on now.
