The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Something tells me that My Name is Earl might not have been on the top of the "Must See TV" list of John Melchior. Had he even watched one single episode, he might have known that Karma always comes back to bite you in the ass, or as in his case- knock you off the motorcycle.

Melchior was driving north at a high rate of speed on U.S. 42 and struck a southbound SUV head on driven by Susan Garret, of Valley City, according to the Medina Ohio State Highway Patrol, .

The motorcycle then traveled on and hit another car driven by Dawn Wilker, 32, of Medina.

Melchior was thrown off the motorcycle and struck the pavement. The other drivers were not injured.

Melchior died from the accident, and I know.. you're wondering where karma comes into play.

Turns out, Melchior was running from the police after a warrant was issued for him, in relation to a attempted rape and burglary .

Parma police had issued an arrest warrant for Melchior after he was identified as a suspect in a burglary and attempted rape at the Parma Woods Apartments on Thursday.

A 26-year-old woman told police she woke to find a nude Melchior in her bedroom. When she tried to call 9-1-1 he pulled the phone away and tried to attack her. The woman was able to escape after a struggle and ran to a neighbor.

Parma police said Melchior has a history of break-ins and assaults. He was listed as a registered sex offender after he was convicted of gross sexual imposition and rape in 1995.

As reader Spriddy pointed out, the comments are worth reading on this one.
