An old school trapper hat and an Eight Ball jacket, a style popular in the 90’s, was the fashion statement a man made that he had no clue would get him thrown in jail and create the latest internet sensation.
The man was riding on a New York City subway train around 5 a.m. on Saturday when a young women began putting the very tall 8-Ball jacket wearing gentleman on blast with her friends egging her on.
Mr. 8-Ball seemed to not be reacting until the cell phone/cameraman gets involved, telling the woman that no one wears Steve Madden shoes anymore.
She and her friends then charge camera phone man and someone knocks the cell/camera out his hand twice.
“Damn, you petty as hell. You can’t even afford this new phone,” the cameraman yells at the group. The first woman hits the phone out of his hand again.
The guy in the 8-ball jacket says, “I don’t do… why you get mad?”
The woman yells at him, “You sound stupid!”
Mr. 8-Ball seems to call her the “B” word, rhymes withitch. She hits him with purse or possibly her Steve Madden shoes. Mr. 8-Ball slaps the Amazement out of her. The smack was loud enough for everyone in the train to hear and the aftermath is small melee.
The New York Police Department arrested four suspects, who range in age from 20 to 25 and include the man in the coat. The woman who hit the man in the coat with a high-heeled shoe was charged with felony assault; the others were charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct.
