Joey Barton has only been with QPR for about a week now, but he's already the top suspect in a crime at the club. Well, a crime that's also sort of a public service.
The Ugg boots pictured above belong to QPR striker Jay Bothroyd. The picture was taken by Mr. Barton, who apparently took exception to a grown man wearing Uggs. He tweeted:
Though the boots did not end up in the shower, misfortune did befall them and Barton just happened to be there when Jay discovered the mangled remains...
Barton was quick to blame the boots themselves for the suspicious decapitation:
And finally, perhaps feeling the all too familiar pressure of being scrutinized by accusatory stares and people questioning his involvement in the twisted act, Barton denied any involvement in the crime and came up with a weak alibi:
Hopefully some hard evidence turns up that can break this case wide open, but until then, all we can say is that it appears Joey Barton did Jay Bothroyd a favor.
UPDATE: Barton continues to proclaim his innocence in the unsolved mystery and now he's even targeted us for tying him to it....
You've got Ugg fur on your hands Joey, and one day we will prove it!
