OMG, it was bad enough he beat up his ex girlfriend but Donald Earl Fite III then stabbed her pet fish, a brilliant purple betta named DeLorean, and left it impaled in her apartment. Geez and he looks like a nice guy! Despite not wanting to talk about the assault, his attorney said stabbing the fish was “a very low point” in his client’s life and “He is absolutely mortified and ashamed about what he did to the fish,”. Hmm, the incident happened when Sarah Harris arrived home and found her ex lying on her bed. After telling him she had no intensions of getting back together with him, he refused to let her leave. One thing lead to another and Mr Fite III grabbed her by her hair extensions which ripped out of her head and she fell against the bathtub.When she eventually escaped, rang 911 and returned with police they found DeLorean impaled on her wood floor with a knife. Mr Fite III told police “If she can’t have me, then she can’t have the fish.” Judge sentenced him to two years probabtion and a psychological evaluation.
Psst Despite what he did to DeLorean, the judge said he wouldn’t ban him from having contact with fish. Oh and the judge also declined Ms Harris’s request that Mr Fite the III pay for the cost of her to have a memorial tattoo of DeLorean.
