There's always some asshat trying to tell us what is and isn't okay. And that's fine. Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one.
But when they try to run your ass over for being at a strip club, that's going a bit far.
An unidentified man crashed into the Valley Hall Cabaret on Sepulveda north of Roscoe this morning around 12:30. After that he aimed the car at pedestrians and folks coming out of the club. He then took cops on a fun little romp through north L.A., running red lights, driving the wrong way on the 118 Freeway and, in a display of tactical genius, rammed into two police cruisers.
It's not clear why he did it. Maybe he got kicked out of the club, maybe he thought that one dancer was really, really into him and got upset when she wouldn't follow him home. Maybe he's just got a problem with boobies.
Either way, he's not going anywhere anytime soon. He's cooling his heels in the Mission Hills lockup.
Turns out the gentleman in question is one Jimmy Giron. The LAPD Blog has this to say about it.
Jimmy Giron, a 26 year-old, male, Hispanic from Panorama City went to visit his ex-girlfriend in the 8500 block of Sepulveda Boulevard, in North Hills. After a heated exchange of words, he left the establishment, got into a white 1996 Dodge panel van and attempted to run over seven pedestrians.
