A University of Arizona law school student and former beauty queen has been indicted on charges that she and three others held her ex-boyfriend captive for 10 hours while torturing and robbing him.
Kumari Fulbright, a law clerk for U.S. District Judge Raner Collins, was indicted in Pima County Superior Court Dec. 18 on five felony charges: armed robbery, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Fulbright, 25, and three men are accused of tying up a 24-year-old man with plastic cable and duct tape Dec. 8 and holding him captive at two residences, one on the North Side and the other in Midtown, according to court documents.
Court documents say the four suspects pointed pistols at the man, threatened his life and stole his wallet, cell phone, briefcase and $500 to $600 in cash.
"(Fulbright) specifically bit him several times while he was bound, stuck a butcher knife in his ear and said she was going to kill him, pointed a pistol at him," the documents say.
After eight to 10 hours, according to the documents, the victim was able to grab Fulbright's gun, the gun went off and he ran out of the house screaming for help.
Police said the man's injuries were consistent with his story.
A search-warrant inventory filed in court indicates police found an expended bullet at a home in the 1200 block of East Knox Drive along with .45-caliber ammunition, plastic gloves, marijuana, the victim's wallet and briefcase, and a book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People."
Police found duct tape at a home in the 2400 block of North Bryant Avenue.
Fulbright's attorney, Tom Hartzell, said his client is a promising first- or second-year law student who hopes to go into entertainment law.
Fulbright ran in the Miss Arizona contest and was named Miss Pima County in 2005 and Miss Desert Sun in 2006.
"We're eager to see the process through and for the truth of this matter to come to light," Hartzell said. "My preliminary investigation indicates the alleged victim is not the most savory individual and will be coming to court with a whole lot of baggage of his own."
Assault and disorderly conduct charges were filed against the victim in March and dismissed on Dec. 6 after he completed a diversion program, according to court documents.
Fulbright told Judge Collins about the case, Hartzell said. A message on Collins' voice mail indicates he is out of the office for the holidays.
Fulbright was released from the Pima County jail on $50,000 bail.
Police are still searching for two men in connection with the case, said Deputy Pima County Attorney Michael Kelly. The third man, Larry Bruce Hammond, remains jailed on $50,000 bond.Molly Weasley makes Chuck Norris eat his vegetables.

The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.
Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

We had a similar situation a couple of years ago. Google "Bonita Money."
