Grand Old Police Blotter: Todds and Monsters Edition

North Carolina G.O.P. leader and family man Todd Kincannon tries to get his Germanwings, and fails:
[Kincannon's wife, Ashely Suzanne Griffith] went on to tell the deputy that, while Kincannon was driving the car in a Chick-fil-A parking lot at about 5 mph, she attempted to get out of the vehicle, but “James grabbed Ashely’s arm, squeezing it tightly, thus preventing her from exiting the vehicle,” according to the report. She told the deputy that she hit Kincannon’s arm several times in an attempt to escape, but Kincannon accelerated and she was unable to get out.
From the report:
Ashley continued to tell me she called her mother for help and attempted to call 9-1-1 with an open line in order for the dispatcher to hear James. While driving, James saw a police vehicle and ‘freaked out.’ James threatened he would drive the car into a concrete barrier if the cops became involved. In addition, James also threatened to kill himself if Ashely left. Ashely continued to tell me James has made several threats in the past to kill himself, her, and her family. Furthermore, Ashely said she has past incidents of domestic violence and threats of homicide/suicide recorded. I saw no visible injuries to Ashely, she provided me with a written statement, and was issued a victim’s pamphlet. It should be noted Ashely was trembling as she wrote her statement.
Todd says he was all hopped up on cough medicine at the time. Which doesn't explain either his past domestic terrorism and/or his well-documented history of general assholery. 

Maybe he's a secret Muslim.

Maybe South Carolina should change its license plates to read, "Land of GOP Melodrama."

For those of you who’ve been out of the loop, there was a death in our family a few days ago and the air fare and a car malfunction really put a crimp in our finances. Details are here, if you wish to help or at least pass the word. Thank you so much in advance.

Who is this "James" person? Is he also "Todd"? Or someone else?

Per the article:

(Note: Kincannon’s full name is listed as James John Todd Kincannon; the report refers to him as James):
