Man Alleges He Was Tortured by Rutherford County Commissioner Over Counterfeit Justin Bieber Tickets

Here's a particularly bizarre news item that I'll present mostly without comment. According to The Daily News Journal, Nashville man Kenneth Cooper claims that Rutherford County commissioner Matthew Young and Murfreesboro businessman Bubba Hutson assaulted and tortured him in the summer of 2012 over counterfeit Justin Bieber tickets. (The tickets were for Bieber's Jan. 18 Bridgestone appearance, which of course looked like this.) Just ... here:

"They confronted me and put a dog collar behind my neck and repeatedly burned me with cigarettes," Cooper said in an interview with News Channel 5.

Young and Hutson discovered Cooper, who once lived with Young, had sold the pair 16 counterfeit tickets to a Jan. 18 Justin Bieber concert, according to a Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office incident report from July 20, 2012. ...

Young and Hutson reported they bought 16 tickets at $100 each from Cooper, but became suspicious, Sheriff’s Detective Richard Brinkley wrote in the police report.

“He took them to Bridgestone Arena and confirmed his suspicion there,” Brinkley reported.

As we all know, being burned by cigarettes is approximately one notch above being forced to attend a Justin Bieber concert on the torture scale. Rimshot or whatever.
