[LOCAL NEWS] Turns Out, The Bro Who Dropped The FHRITP On WNEP Last Night Goes To Lackawanna College, And That’s Where Police Arrested Him. Wait What?
Shocked, but not really shocked. I didn’t even know it was possible to be arrested for saying two curse words.
SCRANTON — City police charged a city man Thursday night after he grabbed a television reporter’s arm and yelled obscenities into her microphone during a live news broadcast.
Tyrone Parker, 18, 501 Madison Ave., Scranton, was charged with falsifying reports because he lied to police that he didn’t do it. He later recanted and admitted he grabbed WNEP-TV reporter Stacy Lange’s arm and said a swear word into her microphone during a live broadcast in Scranton. Mr. Parker went to a Lackawanna College dorm after the incident, which is where police found him.
Bail and preliminary hearing information was not immediately available.
So let me get this straight, he’s in jail because he lied about dropping the FHRITP bomb? Kind of sketchy. Are there laws stating you that you will be arrested if you swear on live television? Because I don’t think there are. Sounds like the police couldn’t charge him for saying “FHRITP” or being black, so they charged him with falsifying reports. Oh wait, did I just pull the race card? YEP! Just check out what some people had to say about him in the comment section in last night’s blog. Seriously.
If this kid was white or a female, I bet everyone would be in better spirits today. Everybody would be talking about how funny it was. But since he’s black, everybody wants to crucify him for saying two curse words influenced by a viral video that was started by a white man 6 months ago…
Hire a good lawyer and get yourself out of this, Tyrone.
