In addition to being saddled with a name like Marlon Brando Gill (or maybe because of it), a young Missouri man (pictured left) has been charged with felony assault after his 24-year-old girlfriend was taken to the hospital last week with a cell phone stuck in her throat. When she was first taken in, police thought she had stuck the cellphone there herself to keep it from good ol' Marlon, but now, things have changed for the worse.

"Our initial press release was that she had swallowed a cell phone," Police Sgt. Allen Kintz told the AP. "Subsequent investigation found that she didn't swallow the cell phone voluntarily. That was what we were told initially."

Brilliant deduction. After the phone in question was removed from the poor girl's throat, she admitted that her handsome, smart and obviously caring boyfriend had actually crammed it down her throat during a fight. Police are searching for Gill. He is 5 feet 9 inches and 180 pounds. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-8477.
