"TASER! TASER! TASER!": Meet The Meathead

The good folks at RedEye have tracked down the lucky recipient of this weekend's police tazing at John Barleycorn in Wrigleyville.

Irish-themed holiday buff John Acosta, 21, has been charged with aggravated battery to a police officer and resisting arrest. According to RedEye:
Once inside the bar an officer used his Taser on Acosta, yelling "Taser, Taser, Taser," to warn others, the report said. Acosta was taken to Thorek Hospital to remove Taser probes and treat a bloody nose, the report said. 
Acosta was brought to the Cook County Criminal Courthouse on Monday afternoon and released on a $30,000 I-bond with electronic home monitoring required.
Electronic monitoring? Hasn't this man suffered enough at the hands of government-supplied electronics?

  1. He's lucky to have been taken to Cook County Criminal Courthouse and not the Cook County Medical Examiners office. At just 21 he is starting off on the right foot as regards to learning the proper way to conduct yourself in a public place.

    1. Before you pass judgements over something you have no idea how it happenned, I will suggeat that you should learn to do some research before you open your mouth,, so you dont sound so ignorant.

  2. He looks too damn good, considering he fought with the police. Different times, I suppose.

    1. Different times is right. A couple of hard swings with the old bully club to the head and there would be no photo.
