Dead Rising Psychopaths

Cletus Samson is a psychopath who appears on the first day of Dead Rising in the scoop The Gun Shop. Cletus is a stereotypical drinking, paranoid, gun-hoarding redneck. Complete with the wine he drinks during Frank's fight with him. He is also what one would call a 'yella-belly', as when Frank defeats him, he evades Frank, crawling, running away saying how Frank is insane, wanting guns so bad he'd kill for them.
