korean marathon runner arrested for attacking wife

What the hell. A man who came from South Korea to run the Boston Marathon has been accused of trying to kill his wife hours after completing the race: South Korean man accused of attacking wife after Marathon. Police arrested 41-year-old Kim Yong Sik earlier this week after being called to the parking lot of the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham. According to hotel security, Kim tried to choke the woman by stepping on her throat, then later kicked her while she was on the ground.

Kim told investigators (through a translator) that he had come to Boston with a tour group to run in the Boston Marathon. He apparently finished the 26.2 mile course in just under 5 1/2 hours. Perhaps he was mad he didn't get a better time? That's no reason to try to kill your wife, you idiot. Kim was charged with attempted murder and domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
