A 40-year-old guy named Travis Tarrants recently applied to be a fourth-grade teacher and basketball coach at a school in French Lick, Indiana.
French Lick is about 100 miles south of Indianapolis, and got an honorable mention on that list of dirty-sounding town names we saw yesterday.
Anyway, basketball is huge there, because it’s Indiana, and Larry Bird’s hometown. Unfortunately for Travis, they hired someone else.
But instead of looking for a DIFFERENT job, he started harassing the guy who DID get it, by mailing the guy and his fiancée packages of DEAD ANIMALS. Including a raccoon and four skunks.
And at least one of them had a note inside that said it wouldn’t stop happening until the guy resigned. Travis didn’t put his name on the packages, but the cops figured it out.
Because he also made four phone calls to Child Services, claiming the other guy was sleeping with a 15-year-old. And he sent letters to the guy’s boss and his FIANCÉE’S boss that said the same thing.
Then he left at least two voicemails threatening to KILL the fiancée and their BABY if the guy didn’t step down. He’s facing felony charges for stalking, intimidation, and criminal mischief.
