It's the real life Joe Dirt. Go find your parents Joe.
I did something similar in Omaha after South Carolina won their 2nd National Championship. No harm no foul. Police did not believe my friends that I was in stadium on the field at 230am local time. Said it was impossible. When I came out they told me never to do that again and I told them not to worry about it cause I was flying out the next morning. That was that. I hope Joe gets through this. Great story.
I laughed til I cried over this. I wish I'd seen him last Saturday night. It is my dream to be in a mascot suit and do all that crazy stuff. Drop the charges and move on! We have murderers and real thieves to worry about. And the cops laughed. I would've too! How was he able to drink with the mascot head on?!?
OK, he's guilty of being drunk and stupid, and who knows whether he'd really have returned the Homer regalia. But felony charges? The law's a poor instrument for dealing with buffoonery. Surely saner minds will prevail, and find a punishment to fit the crime.
Looks a little like Aaron Rodgers.
Are you kidding me? This guy really thinks he did nothing wrong? Waking up on someone else's property and taking their property, something that clearly does not belong to you, is a crime. Yup. Sorry dude, but you are in complete denial. Hope the judge orders you to rehab. Normal people don't blackout, pass out in unknow places, under stairwells....and go do the stuff you did.
I once, inadvertently, entered an unlocked Volawagen dealership at 5:00 in the morning. My car had been towed there and I forgot that the key to my apt was on the keys I gave the tow truck driver. I could've made off with a few vehicles, but no, I just got my keys, politely answered the phone when the security company called (I may have been slightly intoxicated) and left. The owner of the dealership and I had a friendly chat the next day when I mentioned that they should lock the door, and I had a priceless voicemail from a sheriff deputy, but no charges were filed. I say Joe and I are the real hero's here. We turned from temptation :).
I don't understand why Joe can't have a Go Fund Me account. Go Fund Me is FULL of scammers and Mother's that want money for the police shooting their kids for doing illegal things. The Stadium should have to suck it up, they left him in there.
First ballot ticket to the Shenanigans Hall Of Fame.
Reminds me of the night that the Network Operations Manager at one of the local banks decided to take home the Donkey Pinata that graced the old Casa Gallardo's on Wendover Rd. When he sobered up he couldn't figure out how to return it - so knowing that one of the manager's was my neighbor he left it on the front porch in the dark of night...and got clean away...
Greg Williams gets my vote for good legal advice
I know Joey very good guy . Crazy but not a thief I seen him like this at the race track . Two funny good luck !
Gotta love this guy! Maybe the best thing to happen to Homer! They need to add his kick-ass mullet to Homer! #FreeJoe
Well, I suggest anyone called to jury duty study up jury nullification. No harm occurred here. If anything, he brought extra business to the local nightlife and team. Thus, find him not guilty. What's he guilty of? Being fun loving?
I swear I love this kid. The funniest guy I have ever met in my life.
Great story...and epic mullet.
I want to tell Joe that going on the record before his trial is probably not in his best interest, but how can I say 'no' to a story like this?
This is *amazing*! #FreeJoe
I have travelled to just about every city/metropolitan area in the county, many times. This article/interview just cements why I find Creative Loafing to be the best local periodical in the United States.
First, Ryan this is great writing. I appreciate your detailed coverage, going beyond the surface issue and getting a broad set of opinions.
Second, Parkwood is an excellent example of how bad things can be for a pedestrian or cyclist. I cross Parkwood every day either commuting to work on bike or walking my dog in the neighborhood. It is unbelievable. 55 is the new 35; it is like a 4 lane highway at 830am. A half baked solution is not the answer here, we need dedicated lanes and drastic lowering of the speed limit along with strict enforcement. In NC if someone is going 15mph over the speed limit and traveling in excess of 55mph it is mandatory that they lose their driving privledges. This is how dangerous the state finds those conditions to be for us, the other drivers and people. It happens every day on this road.
Third, how are all of the people using the BLE crossing these roads, especially as we grow denser in the center city area and neighborhoods. We will build a train we have to drive to. That's not the idea. That's not what we want Charlotte! We want to be better than Atlanta from both a traffic and pedestrain/cyclist perspective. To do so we can't follow the pack, as Moore is advocating this is the time to be the lead on how America commutes in the southeast. Nobody has ever said "driving my car for the rush hour commute this morning was so great". Throwing more lanes and parking spots won't ever change that. Think about it.
