F Lee Bailey


F Lee Bailey was an American lawyer best known for being part of the Dream defence team which got OJ Simpson off a murder charge. He made his name in the 1960s as the lawyer who got Sam Shephard a retrial over the murder of his wife. Shephard, who was innocent, went on to inspire the film The Fugitive, and also became a pro-wrestler and invented the Mandible Claw submission move later used by Mick Foley and Britt Baker.  Bailey also defended Patty Hearst, and later became a TV personality. 

He was a unique pick for Heads in a Bag. Something about gloves would have been more apt…
