Colombian footballer Javier Florez shot a man dead last night for teasing him. Yea, you read that right, teasing him. The Atletico Junior de Barranquilla player was driving near his house when a group of people began taunting him about his team’s recent loss in the Colombian Apertura championship final. Apparently, since he’d been drinking, this was a bad idea. The drunken Florez then got out of his car, with a gun in hand, shot at the group, hit and killed a man with two of the shots, then left his car and ran away from the scene of the incident. Luckily (for him) he just turned himself in to the authorities.
Tragic…truly sad. What I want to know is, how has this not happened here in the states? Who do you think would be the first American athlete to kill a fan for making fun of him? Or has it been done before and I just totally missed it?
I’m thinking Ron Artest might have a good shot. Its too bad Albert Belle doesn’t play anymore cause he’d be MONEY. What do you, our readers who never comment, think?
