White Boy Rick aka Richard Wershe accused of attacking girlfriend after sex trends now
The youngest FBI informant in history, known was White Boy Rick aka Richard Wershe, was arrested Tuesday and accused of attacking his girlfriend after she stormed off when he called her by the wrong name during sex.
Wershe, whose story inspired the 2018 Matthew McConaughey movie White Boy Rick, was having sex with his girlfriend in his Miami-area condo when the altercation took place.
She told police that Wershe, 53, called her by a different name, causing her to get angry, when she tried to leave, he grabbed her and ripped off her diamond necklace and bracelet.
The woman, named as Wershe's girlfriend by officials, then threw a shoe at the former informant which prompted him to punch her in the chest. She also says that she has a 'third party' who will verify her story. It's not known who the witness is or why they were there.
