George Washington would not be proud: John Augustin Washington V, a descendant of our first president, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for smashing a vodka bottle over the head of an English banker, the New York Post reports. George’s descendant and the banker reportedly fought over a woman at a St. Tropez nightclub in 2006. Washington fled, then was extradited to France for trial.
