Alleged Mom Beater Gets Testy with Reporter

Larry Richette of Philadelphia doesn't seem like such a brainy guy -- but he certainly flashed those brains in front of reporter Monique Braxton of NBC 10.

In the grand tradition of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, ad crotcheum, Richette decided that brains would speak louder than words, and gave this poor woman a piece of his mind when she asked about allegations that he beat up his 79-year-old mother.

Richette has been accused of aggravated assault, simple assault, and reckless endangerment ... and now, assault with a floppy weapon.
