Seriously – what is wrong with this man?
WBTV reports John Walter Miles, 27, went on a racially-charged rant at a grocery store when a clerk refused to sell him and his girlfriend alcohol.
It appears Mr. Miles might have had a few already.
According to the Sumter Police Department, Miles refused to leave the store and called an employee a racial slur.
In the video uploaded to TikTok, he reeled off a wild “Black lives don’t matter” screed as he cussed out other people in the store.
He was eventually escorted off the premises and charged with aggravated breach of peace and trespassing.

Meet Landon Grier, 24, who allegedly refused to wear a face mask on an Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to Denver (as required by the FAA) on March 9 and then apparently urinated in the cabin.
He’s now facing a possible 20 year prison sentence and $250,000 fine for the federal charge of interfering with a flight crew and attendants.
From NBC DFW:
The affidavit by FBI Special Agent Martin Daniell III, who interviewed Grier and crew members, says Grier appeared to be trying to sleep but swatted at an attendant when she asked him repeatedly to put on his mask, as required by the Federal Aviation Administration.
A passenger later summoned attendants because Grier was urinating in his seat area, Daniell wrote.
The agent said Grier told him he had several beers and “a couple of shots” before boarding the flight, fell asleep on the plane and “awoke to being yelled at by the flight attendants who told him he was peeing.”
Grier later admitted to having several beers and “a couple of shots” before the flight.
Journalist Jeremy Jojola reports that Grier has several previous arrests including drunk driving and burglary.

With the holiday season in full swing, I figure some folks might imbibe on perhaps a bit too much “holiday cheer,” so let’s check in with the smart guys at AsapSCIENCE to learn what happens when you get drunk and high at the same time.
Be smarter in three minutes, watch the vid below.
And, you shiny happy people, please celebrate the holidays responsibly 🙂
Talk about a serving of justice served cold.
From Huffington Post:
Luke Gatti, 19, of Bayville, New York, was charged with breach of peace and criminal trespass, the Hartford Courant reported.
In a viral YouTube video of the incident, titled “Drunk Kid Wants Mac And Cheese,” Gatti can be seen telling the manager of Union Street Market, “Just give me some f–king bacon, jalepeno mac and cheese” and verbally abusing him. The manager tells the student, “You can’t come in here with an open bottle of booze, dude. Think about it!”
Hunky Hollywood “It” man Chris Pratt is currently promoting his upcoming (and soon to be HUGE hit movie) Jurassic World.
During a “behind the scenes” with Pratt for a GQ Magazine photo shoot, someone thought it would be fun to ask the hunkster for acting tips. At issue, however, was the fact that Pratt had a few shots of Fireball whiskey to loosen up for the shoot.
That’s ok, Chris. We’re good with that. Proceed 🙂
“The truth is, it’s hot as hell. And I’m drunk,” admitted Chris with a mischievous grin.
Pratt asked for more shots, and talked away, to hilarious results.

Back in October I reported on an incident at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport where an apparently drunk man attacked a man for being perceived to be gay. After his arrest, theories abounded that he would receive a mere slap on the wrist for his violent behavior.
And now, that’s exactly what happened.
Towleroad has the details:
The passenger who went on a drunken, violent, anti-gay rampage that was caught on video at DFW International Airport in October will pay $474 in fines for the incident, according to a court spokeswoman.
McCleish Christmas Benham, now 28, of Shelbyville, Tennessee, assaulted two people while yelling anti-gay epithets, before other passengers tackled him to the ground and he was arrested on Oct. 23.
A bystander captured the incident on video and posted it on YouTube, where it’s been viewed more than 5 million times.
Benham was charged with public intoxication and simple assault, both class-C misdemeanors each punishable by a maximum $500 fine, but no jail time. The case was referred to the Municipal Court in the city of Grapevine, Texas.
When asked by police how many alcoholic drinks he had had, Benham replied: ‘About 100.’
A cellphone video of the altercation has received over 5 million views.
In an apparent anti-gay attack, a seemingly drunk traveler attacked what he clearly assumed was a gay man at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport yesterday.
From Raw Story:
The video is dated Thursday, October 23, and shows an unnamed angry man bellowing and threatening another passenger who is wearing a jacket and a pink shirt.
A tall man in a black cowboy hat approaches and asks the angry man what he’s upset about.
“Queers!” the man shouted. “That’s what I’m upset about. This faggot right here.”
After a tense exchange, the angry man kicks the man in the pink shirt, then slaps at him and grabs his hair.
A number of people rush to intervene as the man is tackled and put on the floor.
The man in the cowboy hat can be heard saying loudly, “No way! No way, you motherfucker. You ain’t doin’ that fucking shit, motherfucker.”
You can hear the man as he’s being handcuffed saying “I punched him square in the mouth in the fuckin’ mouth is what I did. Because this is America. When I get up I’m gonna beat the shit out of him.”
Props to the folks who jump in so quick. AND to Andrew Kennedy who captured the scuffle on video.
