It’s probably a good idea to never be involved in a giant fight, or really any situation where a man with a badge threatens you with arrest. If you must be in such a situation, though, whatever your views on authority would be, we cannot stress this enough: Do not “up the ante” by pulling a knife on said man with said badge. It always ends poorly. And for God’s sakes, don’t play with your food!
Sadly, our advice comes a little too late for prep star Antwon Chisholm, who was accruing offers from a number of high-profile schools, like West Virginia and Georgia. Those offers are probably history, though, provided anything in the police report of a recent food court battle royale is anywhere close to true. As DR. SATURDAY reports, Chisholm decided to become the next subject of “When ‘Keeping It Real’ Goes Wrong” (audio NSFW) by earning felony charges when some stuff went down at the local mall:
The fight involved more than 20 people punching, kicking, throwing chairs and tossing food trays, authorities say. Nine people were arrested, all between the ages of 16 and 20.
Chisholm, who allegedly threatened a security guard with a knife after he tried to arrest him, is the only person facing a felony charge.
Emphasis ours, as always. Chisholm’s charged with our good old friend disorderly conduct (which really sounds a lot more innocuous than it actually is), plus the felony in question, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (which sounds exactly as serious as it ought to).
Oh, and that’s not all. Should we throw drugs into the mix? Sure, why not! Chisholm also faces marijuana possession, making his decision to become Alpha Criminal Attention Whore Number One in the brawl (remember, only 9 of the roughly 20 participants were even charged with anything) all the more witless.
So let’s amend our earlier advice. If you’re carrying a knife and weed, don’t threaten a security guard. As a matter of fact, let’s make it even simpler: don’t carry a knife and weed!
