Note: There's still time to enter the first Rangelife Comments Contest. While recognition is the prize, I've added a material element. What is it? Let's just say I'm packing for an intra-city move, and I've found all kinds of, uh, interesting objects around the house. You're going to want this, so get enterin'!
Now, Florida, POTN, Part 26.
Mugshot madness from The Smoking Gun:
While a beaming Farrington showed his pearly whites, Brockett opted for a more taciturn look, one reminiscent of the "another fine mess" pose of Stan Laurel.
Stan Laurel and Hannibal Lecter are pretty solid, but I fear that in this case, the Dynamic Duet of Florida loses to the Johns of Illinois and the Bug-Man of Texas, as well as Grand Champion Brian Peppers of Ohio.
According to an incident report filed Sunday, Juan Carlos Montenegro told authorities he saw Pesci in the parking lot outside of a Circuit City on West Glades Road and approached the actor to tell him how big of a fan he is. Montenegro, 24, said Pesci shook hands with him.
Montenegro told police that he then went inside the Circuit City to buy a camera. When he returned to the parking lot, Montenegro said he approached Pesci again and asked him if he would take a picture with him. When Pesci refused, Montenegro told police he followed Pesci through the parking lot and continued to ask for a picture.
The incident report said that when Pesci turned around to face the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., student, Montenegro took a picture of him. That's when Montenegro said that Pesci hit him.
Montenegro told Pesci that he shouldn’t have hit him, and Pesci responded by saying, "You shouldn't have been interrupting my business," the incident report said.
This Montenegro jackass needed a sound, sound beating. Pesci isn't just a non-working self-characature; he's a human being. One of the differences between children and a grown-ups is having the empathy to leave celebrities (or even "celebrities") alone to live their lives. If only Pesci had used a tire iron...
My one question for Pesci: What kind of "business" were you doing in the Circuit City parking lot that afforded this kid the time to go in, buy a camera, and still find you there?
"Now go get your shinebox."
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (AP) -- An airline passenger bit a fellow traveler Monday, then jumped out of a jetliner as it was moving to take off, authorities said. He was later subdued with a stun gun.
Troy Rigby, 28, was taken to a hospital from the Fort Lauderdale airport, the Broward County sheriff's office said. It was unclear whether he was injured. Paul Sigler suffered minor injuries from the bite.
The Continental Airlines flight had been delayed for about 30 minutes, and as the Boeing 737 began to taxi, the man started yelling to get off, the sheriff's office said.
So, you see, it's the airline's fault. Fucking Continental.
He ran to the front of the plane and banged on windows and the cockpit door, authorities said. As passengers and crew members tried to restrain him, he bit a passenger.
When the pilot depressurized the cabin, the man opened a door, jumped to the tarmac and ran toward the terminal. Deputies said they zapped him with a stun gun after he resisted arrest.
Rigby will be charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespass, battery, resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer, in addition to an outstanding warrant for marijuana possession, the sheriff's office said.
It's the "outstanding warrant on marijuana possession" that gets me. Why didn't they just arrest him when they found the ganja in his crotch the first time?
The plane, set to fly from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Newark, New Jersey, was carrying 116 passengers and five crew members. It was rescheduled for later Monday, a Continental spokesman said.
Let's look at the bright side. At least they didn't kill him this time.
