In England, four prison officers were injured after discovering Charles Bronson naked in a gym and covered in butter. Ok, this might need a bit of explanation. Bronson, it turns out, is England’s most violent prisoner — a man who has spent nearly all of the last 36 years in prison for one violent crime or another. On this effort, he decided to butter himself to make it more difficult for guards to grab him — it worked. It took 12 guards to finally subdue the greased con.
His original name was Michael Gordon Peterson of Luton, Bedfordshire, but he changed his name in 1987 after seeing the “Death Wish” movie series. Here I thought this crime was brought on by watching “I Can’t Believe Its Not Butter” commercials.
It is a little curious that a felon would choose to name himself after an actor in vigilante films getting vengeance against felons. The buttered Bronson has been convicted of various crimes, including wounding with intent, criminal damage, grievous bodily harm, false imprisonment, blackmail and making threats to kill.
The inmate is a fitness nut who has written books from prison, including Solitary Fitness. The next addition is called the “The One Stick of Butter and Twelve Prison Guard Cardio Training.” Bronson is also the subject of his own film. I wonder if the original Charles Bronson had watched the movie, whether he would have changed his name to Michael Gordon Peterson.
