‘Box Man’ to pay $600 for freedom

`A man showed up Thursday for his preliminary hearing in Greensburg wearing a crisp dress shirt and a snappy tie — just like his attorney wanted — and a box on his head.

Yes, that’s right: a blue-and-white cardboard carton that covered his head and had two eyeholes cut in it so he could see. [..]

Box Man’s attorney, Jeff Leonard, said he decided that wearing the box would be in his client’s best interest. It literally was part of his defense, the attorney explained.

“I’m trying to think outside of the box, so to speak,” the lawyer said. [..]

Box Man’s case apparently did reach a conclusion. And he left the courthouse, with no comment coming from the box.’
