Man sues date for texting during Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2According to the Austin
American-Statesman, 37-year-old Brandon Vezmar of Austin is suing a Round Rock woman for texting during their movie date last week. He’s seeking $17.31, the price of a ticket to a 3D screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Describing the outing as “a first date from hell,” Vezmar told the newspaper that his date began texting about 15 minutes into the movie. According to a petition filed in small claims court, Vezmar’s date “activated her phone at least 10-20 times” until he asked her to stop. When he suggested she go outside to text, the woman departed the theater altogether and left Vezmar without a ride home, he said.
Vezmar said the woman subsequently refused to reimburse him for the ticket, and his petition described her behavior as “a threat to civilized society.”
MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -
A brawl broke out at graduation for Arlington High School on Tuesday night.
The brawl happened at Bellevue Baptist Church during the students’ ceremony.
People at the graduation said the brawl began over a saved seat at the graduation. Several different videos show the brawl happening as graduates walk down the aisles.
In the videos, several people try to break up the fist fight as two women throw punches. At one point, a woman is even knocked to the ground.
From another angle, a family member filmed as the Arlington High graduates walked into the sanctuary and people cheer them on. Then, the person behind the camera hears commotion and films the fight that broke out in the middle of the audience.
In another video, a woman is in handcuffs and another is standing and appears to be combative. Several Bellevue security officers step in to break up the brawl.
Arlington Community Schools responded to the videos with the following statement:
Last night we celebrated 500 students who graduated from Arlington High School. This year’s class earned over $30,600,000 in college scholarships. It was unfortunate that a couple of adults in the audience exhibited the behavior they did prior to the ceremony beginning and thus has caused a distraction from the celebration of our students’ accomplishments. The graduation ceremony was not affected by this incident due to the actions of Bellevue’s security team who promptly removed the adults from the ceremony. It is our hope that the focus will shift to our students and their accomplishments instead of the poor decisions by adults in attendance. Congratulations to our 2017 graduates of Arlington High School.
It’s unclear what, if any, charges the people involved in the fight will face.
All this over a saved seat!!
