Man offers to return finger found in custard

WILMINGTON, North Carolina (AP) -- The man who found a severed fingertip in a pint of frozen custard has made a belated offer to return the digit, but it's too late to reattach it.

The piece of index finger was found earlier this month by Clarence Stowers in the dessert he purchased from Kohl's Frozen Custard in the coastal town of Wilmington.

Stowers had refused to give it to the shop's owner or a doctor who was treating 23-year-old Brandon Fizer, who accidentally stuck his hand in a mixing machine and had his finger lopped off at the first knuckle.

Stowers put the finger in his freezer, taking it out occasionally to show to television cameras.

Several days after the May 1 incident, Stowers changed his mind and "offered to give the finger back if it can be reattached," said his attorney, Lee Andrews.

But medical experts say reattaching a finger generally must be done within hours.


i hope this jerk has big bucks as i think his taking finger is theft

>> Every single time I think I've seen the absolute bottom, the skankiest, stinkiest behavior of which human beings are capable, along comes a Clarence Stowers to prove me wrong. In fact, from here on in, I think "Clarence Stowers" will be my synonym for all that is vile and low. <<

I hope Mr. Fizer sues Mr. Stowers for everything that he hopes to win from the custard company and then some. BTW, will Clarence Stowers be added to the dirty word list here?
