Man Arrested After Drinking Iced Tea In Public Must Take Deal Or Go To Trial

A man drinking canned iced tea in a parking lot was accosted by a plainclothes beverage cop who demanded to inspect his drink.  He was placed in handcuffs and arrested.   Even though the man was innocent and was only drinking tea, prosecutors are still trying to set him up with probation and community service.

One man, Christopher Lamont Beatty, was holding a canned beverage, while his friend, Tino Brown, was recording video using his cell phone.  That’s when the two were interrupted by a man who was interested in the man’s choice of refreshments.

A man in plainclothes, claiming to be “the police”, insisted that he turn over his beverage for an inspection.  Beatty refused the stranger’s requests, but pointed out that it was only an AriZona-brand drink, “Half-and-Half” iced tea and pink lemonade — not alcohol.

Brown and Beatty pointed out that they didn’t know the identity of the nosy man and that Beatty had committed no crime.   Still, the man demanded to examine his beverage and would not take no for an answer.

The stranger then claimed that Mr. Beatty was under arrest.  He became grabby and ended up putting Beatty in a choke-hold as he took him down to the ground.

The bully, who turned out to be Alcohol & Beverage Control Law Enforcer Rick Libero, forced Mr. Beatty face-down onto the concrete and placed him in handcuffs.

The government requests that Beatty “submit to a year of probation, do 24 hours of community service, have a mental health assessment, and submit to drug testing and warrantless searches,” reported the Fayetteville Observer.

“It would get it dismissed at the end, but I would still have to take responsibility for my actions, and I felt like I did nothing wrong,” Beatty said

Ray Frenden reviews the too-cheap-to-be-true Monoprice graphics tablets. How do they stack up to industry standard Wacoms?

After spending a week with the 6.25“x10” Monoprice, my Yiynova and Cintiq remain unplugged and I gave my Intuos away to a friend. The Monoprice tracks subtle pressure variances and small movements with less lag and more crisp fidelity than any of the others. It is, put crudely, fucking awesome, in both OSX Lion and Windows 7 x64.


I have one of these, 10x6.5 I bought about two months ago for 48 bucks. It’s a billion times better than my old Wacom Bamboo and works like a fuckin dream.

ATTENTION ALL PENNY-PINCHING ART FRIENDS!!!

ooo reblogging this for potential future purchase

They’re DEF good. The textured surface makes drawing a lot more organic and it feels more like you’re drawing on paper. It’s super nice. Just a word of warning though—I had to replace mine twice in under a year due to it just failing out on me. Other people have had better luck, but just be aware. But, they offer free repairs and will often send you a new one!

This is what I use and it’s a REALLY solid tablet to boot.

there was a monarch butterfly outside with a torn wing and i thought it was dead so i went to pick it up off the ground with a flower but it began to hurriedly clutch onto it trying to drink something. it was totally trembling; it had a gash on it’s body and i knew it was dying but i couldn’t bring myself to kill it, so i googled a monarch’s favourite food and it ended up being mandarins. he literally devoured as much as he could before dying and i buried him outside my window.

You’re a good person

Now that all current episodes of LoK are up on Nick’s site, I must implore fandom to watch things on Nick.com (or their partners’ sites) as much as you can. Now that Korra is exclusively digital, we as fans need to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to support that format. The episodes will have ads before, during, or after them, but in exchange for high quality episodes and financial support of a show that we love, I think that’s pretty fair.

If you are an international viewer, there are ways for you to work around region blocks. Hola Unblocker is an extension for Chrome, Firefox, and many other browsers that will let you bypass region blocks and view LoK on Nick’s site and though I personally have never used it, it has been demonstrated to work well by many users, 

All current LoK episodes are also available for purchase on Google Play and Amazon. Hulu+ users have access to the first three episodes as of this posting and will likely be getting more of them soon.

Please keep supporting Korra. New episodes will be coming out every Friday on Nick.com and affiliate sites. More information on how exactly this process works will hopefully come in the near future.
