Anthony Weiner of Boston, 25, gets caught up in his own sexting scandal [NYDN]

This Anthony Weiner, 25, of Revere, Mass., used his wife's phone to send a text luring the 21-year-old Winthrop man to another house in Revere. Once there, the guest was greeted with a bat to the head. Prosecutors said Weiner tied the man to a chair, threatened him with a power tool and a BB gun, and only released him when the terrified victim began vomiting. The Boston Weiner paid the battered man an unspecified amount of hush money before putting him into a cab, authorities said. And the victim wound up at Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston with a head injury. Weiner, whose next court appearance was set for Monday, is charged with assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapons and kidnapping. After his arrest, this Weiner — unlike the cyber-cheating ex-Congressman — immediately fessed up, officials said. But he did claim that he acted in self-defense.
