A HARD WAYNE'S GONNA FALL

Violator Sentenced to Newton
Wayne Newton has sold at least one copy of his “Greatest Hits” album.

Eighteen-year-old Justin Rushford of Clawson, Michigan, was sentenced to two hours of listening to the lounge legend's music for two hours as punishment for playing rap music too loudly.

The ruling was laid down by Judge Michael Martone, a Michigan district court adjudicator.

The town of Clawson has an ordinance against people playing their car radios too loud.

After being pulled over on March 5, Rushford admitted that AZ’s “Sugar Hill” was playing very loudly, but explained that the volume knob on his radio was stuck. Judge Martone showed little mercy in his sentence. A Newton CD was purchased, and Rushford was made to listen to the Vegas sensation five or six times through. After 20 minutes,Rushford through himself atthe mercy of the court and begged for Perry Como.

Rushford’s offense could have landed him a $1,000 fine, 90 days in jail or a half-hour listening to the Captain & Tennille.

Martone is known for handing out unusual sentences, which include distributing bumper stickers reading “Drunk Driving, you can’t afford it.” He also sentenced another 18-year-old defendant to attend an autopsy after he had been convicted of alcohol possession three times.
