Cadillac, The Car Of Choice For Philanderers And Wife-Beaters

October 19th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Jen

First Tiger Woods, now Junior Seau…what is it about the Cadillac Escalade that makes it the perfect getaway car for men involved–allegedly–in domestic disputes?

Seau’s Escalade Escapade

Seau, who was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of domestic violence committed against his 25 year-old live-in girlfriend, drove his 3-ton SUV off a seaside cliff a few hours after the arrest. The NFL veteran came away from the accident with minor injuries and reportedly told police that he had fallen asleep at the wheel. His agent, Mike Kinkler, told ESPN that the arrest and the accident were unrelated.

“One had nothing to do with the other,” Kinkler said. “It’s unfortunate the two events happened so close together, but what people are reporting is completely untrue.”

Uh-huh. That’s what Tiger said.

This can’t possibly help the reputation of the Escalade as the douchemobile of choice, but it likely won’t hurt sales either, especially since Cadillac’s have soared 43.8% in the first nine months of this year. Because even philanderers and wife-beaters–alleged, that is–need a bumpin’ set of wheels.

One Response to “Cadillac, The Car Of Choice For Philanderers And Wife-Beaters”

  1. Perhaps Seau drove it off the cliff because he’s actually the abuse victim, but as usual, male police officers arrest the man. Almost half of DV victims are men, regardless of their size, because the women know they can get away with it. An example is in a 2005 COPS episode. Two male San Antonio (TX) officers on a domestic violence call find a man sitting outside the house, claiming he never even went inside. Going inside, they found an upset woman with hand shaped bruises on her neck and arms. However, an arriving female officer noted the bruises were the size of the woman’s own hands. The neighbors told her that the woman was the abusive one. They didn’t arrest the man, but told him he could still be charged under the mandatory arrest law. In Seau’s case, she had minor bruises, not something a large man would leave. It’s common when it’s a male victim that he is arrested, as it was with this sheriff deputy.
