Evil teenager-ish Eric Hunt is pleading insanity. He's been in the nutcase wing of the big house since February when he allegedly stalked, then dragged Nobel Prize winning Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel off an elevator at the Argent Hotel. At the ripe old age of 23 Hunt has copped a 'not guilty by reason of insanity' plea -- for the second time -- after first dropping the insanity schtick in favor of the simpler, and infinitely stupider, 'not guilty' plea. Judging by his taste in stalking targets -- an elderly Jewish writer over, say, a movie star or a politician -- Hunt does seem insane, or at the very least, really really dumb. I mean, who does that?
