Photo: Latin Tatoos on Roland Smith
Roland Smith definitely stood out in the Spotsylvania County Sheriff line up – he has latin phrases tattooed all over his face and chest.
The 32 year-old Virginia resident was arrested for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend when he discovered she was cheating on him at a local Econo Lodge motel. Police had responded to a domestic disturbance at the motel when they found a 36-year-old female that had been stabbed in the stomach and indicated her boyfriend had done it.
As Smith fled the scene his tattoos were an easy identifier – he was apprehended shortly there after.
The smart folks at The Smoking Gun translated some of the profound sayings that include: ‘I think therefore I am’ and ‘Nothing is heavy to those who have wings’. Clearly both musings failed Smith because he didn’t think before he stabbed and he didn’t have wings big enough to escape a probable attempted murder charge.
