Sam Israel Pleads Guilty To Fleeing, Plans Escape No. 2?

Former hedge fund manager-cum-performance artist Samuel Israel III who faked his own death this summer because he didn’t want to go to jail is set to plead guilty to bail-jumping this afternoon. The industry’s biggest M*A*S*H fan and only (known) egret lover waived an indictment on a charge of failure to surrender for his prison sentence before U.S. Magistrate Judge Lisa Margaret Smith this morning, but the formal plea must be entered before U.S. District Court Kenneth Karas later today. And I think we all know what that means but for the non-ambitious ones in the group, I’ll tell you what it means: there’s still time for him to make a run for it.

    @ 8, 10 – or you can both stop being mouthy douches and take a moment to try and comprehend that 7 is being sarcastic. Feel free to go practice the lost art of self-sacrificing to the gods.

    @10 – I’m sorry but that’s not the Paris Hilton video we all know and love.

  15. guest says:

    @11 He wasn’t born in the U.S.

    M*A*S*H reference went way over my head, unless you are not trying to be clever and he really is a fan of the show (I am guessing that is not it).

  17. guest says:

    @16– you clearly haven’t been keeping up. sam israel left the quote “suicide is painless” on the hood of his car when he faked his death. it is a line from M*A*S*H.

  18. guest says:

    #17 Suicide is Painless is the name of the theme song stupid.
    #15 Paris Hilton was born in the US.
    Wake up out there.
