I'd like to introduce you to Abe Brown. 

NOTE: If this apparatus is some sort of medical condition I FULLY apologize. I feel that isn't the case though. 

Abe was recently arrested in Rockford for the following incident.

WIFR - Rockford Police officers were on patrol when the spotted a vehicle traveling with its headlights off in the area of Jefferson and Underwood Street. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver fled. The driver eventually crashed...and attempted to flee on foot. After a brief footchase, the driver was apprehended and identified as 30-year-old, Abe Brown.

Abe was charged with the following charges:

  • No FOID
  • Resisting
  • Aggravated Fleeing to Elude
  • Driving while License Revoked
  • Hit and Run
  • No Insurance
  • Driving Without Headlights When Required

Needless to say, Mr. Brown has made some poor life decisions. I put forth the notion that none of his decisions were as bad as attaching whatever that thing is to his face.

What is it? My first impression was that it was one of those harmonica holders that piano players wear when they want to multitask. You know this one.

I doubt it though. Don't want to generalize here but Abe doesn't seem like the harmonica playing type.

I again want to apologize in advance if this is some sort of medical device. Maybe he recently had jaw surgery and that is helping stabilize it.  No clue.

Do you have any thoughts on what it might be?
