"This right here beats everything I have ever seen," the sheriff said.
That would be sheriff Tom Alexander of Haywood County, where three men were arrested for running a sadomasochistic dungeon where voluntary castrations were performed.
The men were charged with "castration without malice" and practicing medicine without a license.
"The case is the first involving willing castration in the county and could be the first in North Carolina."
Take heart, Tar Heels, at least they aren't home-grown: "Mendez and Sciara moved to Western North Carolina from Topeka, Kan. Reeves moved to the area from Atlanta."
