Cops:Guard shot fingertrying to remove ring
PITTSBURGH — A federal prisonguard has been charged with shootinghis own finger in a drunken attempt toremove his wedding ring during an argu-ment with his wife at their northwesternPennsylvania home,police said.A criminal complaint said Bradfordpolice were called just before 9 p.m.March 2 and were met by AlfredoMalespini III,31,who told officers hewas “trying to get rid of his weddingringand decided to “shoot it off.TheBradford Era first reported the shootingon Friday.The gunshot badly mangledMalespini’s finger,but didn’t remove thering,police said.At the time of the shooting inBradford,which is near the New York border about 130 miles northeast of Pittsburgh,Malespini was employed as alieutenant at the Federal CorrectionalInstitution-McKean,a medium securityprison a few miles away.Vicky Moser,the executive assistantat the prison,said she could confirmonly that Malespini remains employedas a lieutenant at the prison,but couldnot comment as to whether he’s beensuspended or has otherwise takenleave.Bradford police Lt. Steve Caskey toldthe Associated Press that he wasn’t sureof Malespini’s employment status,but“as far as we know,he is still seekingtreatment in Erie.”Malespini was taken to UPMC Hamothospital where he was treated for thegunshot wound and also for mental oremotional issues,Caskey said.Police have been called to theMalespini residence a “couple times”previously for domestic disputes,butCaskey said he doesn’t believeMalespini had ever been charged with acrime before.On the day of the shooting,Malespini“had been drinking quite heavilythroughout the day and he and his wifehad been arguing throughout the dayabout an affair he had had severalmonths ago,Caskey said.Malespini has been charged with dis-orderly conduct and was cited for firinga weapon within city limits but also ischarged with reckless endangerment,asecond-degree misdemeanor punishableby up to two years in prison. That’sbecause the bullet Malespini fired couldhave endangered someone else,Caskeysaid.“He was out on his back deck,he wasoutside...the bullet could have been firedin a direct line with neighbor’s houses,”Caskey said.Nobody else was hurt in the shooting,and Malespini was neither armed norconfrontational when police arrived.“The weapon was still there,but it wasnot in his possession. It was lying on thekitchen counter,Caskey said. “Therewere never any threats to any officers.”

But he’salways been kind of a natty dresser.”The 42-year-old actor,who says he hasan “appreciation for fashion,returns aswomanizing adman Don Draper whenseason six premieres April 7 on AMC.Seeing “Mad Men”style infiltrate popculture — from Taylor Swift’s modminidress on the March cover of Ellemagazine to Timberlake’s ode to oldHollywood glamour with his latest hit,“Suit & Tie,is the ultimate complimentfor Hamm.“It’s nice that our show has had thatsort of serendipitous resonance withfashion,he said. “I think it’s great. Ithink it’s really cool.”As for Timberlake,Hamm believes thepop star is “a very fashion-forward kindof guy,although the Grammy winner isguilty of at least one “fashion don’t.”“That one unfortunate picture of himin that denim tuxedo excused,Hammsaid with a smile,referring toTimberlake’s all-denim ensemble at the2001 American Music Awards.

As any Cinderella knows,if the shoe fitswear it.And Oakland resident Alison Sooter plansto do that and more when the 17-year-oldtakes a dream come true trip to Paris for ashoe shopping spree after a stop at a SanCarlos shoe company’s international head-quarters for some design lessons and a fewpairs of flats.The well-heeled adventure comes courtesyof Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area whichprovides dreams for ill children. In Alison’scase,the prompt is Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Butwhile her illness may be the reason she isgoing to Paris now she is certainly not lettingit define her — or her vacation.As of Monday,Alison didn’t know toomuch about what to expect from her trip otherthan she was leaving Paris-bound from SanFrancisco International Airport on Saturdayfor a week of shoe shopping with her momand 14-year-old brother. What she was morecertain of was what kind of shoes she waslooking for.“Shoes for school and I kind of want shoesfor prom,she said,adding she is also in needof some black flats.After missing part of her senior year due toa difficult course of chemotherapy,Alison isenjoying being back in her regular routinewhich includes looking forward to prom andcompetitive swimming. She’s a little less flex-ible and gets tired sometimes during swimmeets but Alison said she’s been supported byan “awesome group of friends”and is back inthe swing of things.Alison isn’t sure if anyone other than adultsknow about her Parisian plans but joked if herfriends knew they’d “be excited for me butalso secretly jealousbecause they’d want togo.”A friend’s trip to Parisand the allure of the Cityof Lights — “It’s always aparty theme,a Night inParis,she said. “It’s theplace you think of whenyou think of Europe”added to Alison’s lifelongdesire to visit but she never thought she’d gountil much later in life.In the meantime,she honed her shoe desirewith trips to Nordstrom Rack to fill up cartsand try on possible additions to her closet.Unique and “funny-looking”shoes catch hereye although she doesn’t know if she couldpull them off. Her collection includes a pair of UGGs,a lot of moccasins and even slip-onTom’s although her narrow feet make thosechallenging,she said.Currently,she owns 21 pairs of shoesalthough she concedes they don’t all get regu-lar use.“You can’t wear high heels all the time,”sheexplains.After Friday,she will have a few more pairs.Prior to departure with her mom and 14-year-old brother William,Alison is heading to SanCarlos to meet with the founder and designdirector of LUV shoes. The company’s inter-national headquarters are in San MateoCounty and CEO Michael Toschi and DesignDirector Caroline Cecil will show her shoedesign and creation from start to finish forboth his high-end leather men’s footwear lineand the more mass market LUV.Toschi said she’ll see how inspirationbecomes reality all the way through samplesand approval.“She’ll know more about shoes than 99 per-cent of people,Toschi said.If Alison is excited about her trip,Toschimight be equally stirred up about her visit tolearn about his world of shoe design.“The real joy comes from giving and onFriday it will be just as much about me havinga good experience,he said. “It’s like a gift tous and I think she’s going to have a lot of funhere.”Toschi’s connection to Make-A-WishGreater Bay Area is proof of the “serendipityand magic”the nonprofit brings about,saidExecutive Director Patricia Wilson.Wilson and Toschi struck up a conversationon an airplane and,by the time it landed,hewas on board as its newest partner. The nextday,Wilson mentioned the encounter to herstaff and the program director mentioned forthe first time in 14 years there was a wishinvolving shoes.The missions of both the company andMake-A-Wish align well,Toschi said.“If you’re a child that is dying or ill yourbest weapon is motivation and hope and beinginspired to live,he said. “And our company’sphilanthropic section believes inspiration isthe greatest gift you can give another person.”But the giving doesn’t stop there. Toschisaid Alison will be outfitted with a few pairsfor walking around Paris and visiting its land-marks like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.Maybe she’ll get those black flats after all.
