Police accuse Oklahoma college student of dismembering dog 

Remember, when you care enough to send the very best, give a Hallmark card. Not " repeat, not " a severed dog's head.

According to an Oklahoman report, 24-year-old Rogers State University student Tywone Dion Parks is accused of dropping a disembodied doggie noggin on a pal's porch in Claremore. Fellow student Christina Lynn Shipman found the present outside her apartment on Feb. 18 and called the police and Parks.

The article stated that after police found some blood in Parks' car, he was read his rights. In his defense, Parks said he didn't put any pooch to death; rather, while returning from Owasso, he saw the dead dog on the road and decided to remove its head with a stump splitter. Oh, well, in that case "¦

The bizarre behavior earned Parks a search of his apartment, which turned up "disturbing" " so said detectives " journals that reference a planned RSU campus massacre. Parks was charged with "threatening/attempt/conspiring to perform acts of violence" and "outraging public decency," according to the Claremore Daily Progress. Last week, according to the Oke, a Rogers County judge ruled that this did not violate Parks' constitutionally protected right of free speech.

Whew! That's a relief, because it sounds like this guy could share some doozies. We just hope in regaling rapt party crowds with tales, he opts not to use props. Like, you know, stump splitters.
