Girlfriend doesn’t say thanks; girlfriend doesn’t like guy (no idea why), girlfriend is double-fisting Long Island Ice Teas like they were Lipton Ice Tea.
After a few hours, girlfriend is shit-faced and proceeds to pick an argument with the guy. Guy takes it for as long as he can, then guy (who is wicked fast, smart, and not the person you want to verbally joust with) finally unleashes a wicked fast, smart, and STINGING retort.
Girlfriend LEAPS off her bar stool, runs over to where guy is standing,and punches guy– PUNCHES GUY– in the chest.
Guy does NOT want to hit girlfriend back, so guy reaches into his coat pocket takes out a TOY gun and WAVES it in the air so girlfriend is scared shitless.
Girlfriend is scared shitless and stops punching guy.
Police show up. Police call guy and ask guy to come and give his side of the story.
Guy goes (with lawyer), police hear his side of the story. Police arrest guy, charge him with a crime. Police recover TOY gun from guy’s house.
Guy posts HUGE bail.
Guy has been to court 3 times. Each time there is a different D.A. who is not familiar with the case. The second time guy went to court, THAT D.A. wanted to see the video of the incident, which by the way backs up EVERYTHING guy says.
The 3rd court date, the latest D.A. has not seen the tape, but wants to take guy to trial without reviewing the tape her office possesses, which backs up everything guy says.
Guy is spending THOUSANDS in legal fees.
Guy had a toy gun, guy has a video tape backing his story, guy was being HIT IN THE CHEST, and instead of HITTING BACK he wanted to scare girlfriend.
She wasn’t arrested for hitting guy.
Guy is the one scared now.
