Track Star in Mop Duel in the Streets!

It's not just Paris Hilton and Britney Spears who are acting odd in public. This week a star runner at Utah's Brigham Young University got himself arrested for getting out of his car and striking a pedestrian with a mop.

Kyle Perry was driving down a street in Provo and it seems he got a tad too close to a man who was pushing a bucket of mops across a street on June 14, according to police. As often happens, words were exchanged (like, "Your mother uses a Swiffer!," I wonder?) and things went downhill from there.

Police say Perry got out of his car, grabbed a mop from the guy's bucket, and started hitting the man. Naturally, the mop-pushing man grabbed a mop himself, to defend himself. It's dueling mops in downtown Provo, Utah!

Mr. Mop Man lost the duel when he was shoved over a planter box and fell on his back. Did Cyrano de Bergerac ever get upstaged by planter box?!

Mr. Mop Man (no name mentioned by the cops) blocked Perry's car until the police came and nabbed the track star and charged him with aggravated assault.

Perry won the conference title in the 1,500 meters, and came in #12 in the NCAA track championship in that event. You think he might have been better off just running away from the mop fight?
