Every man lives, but not every man tries to hire a hitman to knock off his ex-wife ... but according to cops, some dumbass named William Wallace did exactly that.
The Orange County District Attorney says the 33-year-old was more upset with his ex-wife over a child support battle than Braveheart was with Longshanks after that whole taking over Scotland thing.
Officials say Wallace tried to a hire a hitman to off his ex for $30k ... except the assassin was really an undercover cop who busted Wallace.
Now, the guy is facing life in prison for attempted murder and solicitation to commit murder.
Even Robert the Bruce is shaking his head ...
