Suspect ‘Tebows’ After Assaulting 17-Year-Old Pennsylvania Boy
An unknown man allegedly attacked a 17-year-old boy before dropping to his knees in a Tebow stance, according to The Smoking Gun. The suspect, who promptly fled the scene of the crime after engaging the Lord in a quick prayer session, allegedly attacked the boy after the teen accidentally drove his lawnmower into the path of the man’s car. Unable to control himself, the suspect leaped from his vehicle and proceeded to assault the unsuspecting kid.
WTAE reports that the victim was on his riding mower, minding his own business, when he went to turn the machine around. In the process, the teenager allegedly drove the mower in the path of the suspect’s car, an act which apparently caused the gentleman extreme agitation. As a result, he popped out of the automobile and proceeded to knock the boy from the lawnmower.
Unfortunately, the encounter didn’t conclude there. In addition to knocking the kid off the mower, the unknown man then proceeded to assault the boy, an act which apparently caused the suspect a fair amount of internal conflict. On the way back to the car, the man knelt down in a pose famously used by professional football star Tim Tebow. After a quick word with his personal Lord and Savior, the suspect hopped in the car and immediately motored away.
According to The Smoking Gun, police are now on the lookout for a tall, bald man wearing spectacles. The Tebowing suspect reportedly fled the scene in a maroon car, which local authorities believe is a 1980s Chrysler New Yorker.
Tebowing, named after NFL star Tim Tebow, is defined by Urban Dictionary as an act which requires an individual to who “get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.” Just recently, the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore dropped the Tebow pose while weathering Hurricane Isaac. In reality, he was probably just praying for his life.
