Grandson charged with theft from NASCAR's Ingram


CANDLER, NC (AP) -- The grandson of NASCAR driver Jack Ingram
has been charged with stealing his championship rings and other
mementos, then asking Ingram to pay for their return.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports Buncombe County
investigators charged 25-year-old Jackson Layne Ingram Thursday
with breaking and entering and larceny.

Police said $5,000 worth of items were taken from Ingram's home
June 29, including the diamond ring Ingram won for his 1982 Busch
Series championship , a 1985 championship ring, a watch and his
wife's high school ring.

A few days later, a caller asked for $1,000 to return the items,
but Ingram said no.

Jackson Ingram was being held at the Buncombe County Detention
Center. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

Another case of worthless family you need to write off

See? This notion that you must love family, regardless of the harm they do to you, is nonsense.

Here's yet another example where it is entirely appropriate to say, "You're a worthless POS, grandson, and I never want to see you again."

Anyone who would steal from or kill a family member is pure evil.
