Three Men Arrested for Stealing Obama Signs, Yelling Racial Slurs, According to FHP
Three Orlando men were none-too-thrilled that Barack Obama won reelection as Black President last week, so they decided to drink their sorrows away, then also go drive through a mostly black neighborhood stealing Obama campaign signs while yelling out racial slurs at people, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The three drove around Holden-Parramore in Orlando in a pickup truck (because, of course!) and stole campaign signs as well as stop signs, a Lee Avenue and Citrus Street sign, a daycare loading-zone sign, a bus stop sign, and a mailbox. Because Obama's gonna take our guns, so we best remove street signs so he doesn't find us. Also, in case he decides to take the bus.
The trio were stopped by cops and nailed for DUI. For their part, the trio went with the We found these random street signs and a mailbox on the ground and were totally gonna do our good deed of the day and take 'em to you guys bit.
It was a good plan. But the cops were on to them.
The pickup's driver, Jacob Kupp, 23, was booked for DUI. David Hatmaker, 23, and Austin Bowen, 22, both of Orlando, were also taken in at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.
