Huffington Post Raymond Garcia was mad and allegedly refused to back down against his adversary —a stop sign in Roswell, N.M. The alleged altercation happened Friday when officers responded to a report of a man, later identified by cops as Garcia, fighting a stop sign, UPI reported. Officers said Garcia, 45, appeared to be under the influence of drugs, according to the AP. But while it appears the alleged war between Garcia and the stop sign came to a draw, Garcia still had some fight left for police, according to authorities. First, he allegedly reacted belligerently and ran from two officers, who shot him with Taser darts. Garcia continued kicking at the cops as they got closer, police said according to KRQE-TV. Garcia was darted again, but broke off the Taser leads from his stomach. When one officer tried to use his baton, Garcia got a hold of it and attempted to use it against officers, according to police. The man who fought a stop sign didn’t stop, despite the pepper spray the arresting officers deployed. He simply wiped his face and allegedly continued running while throwing an officer’s baton back at him. Garcia was finally arrested and charged with aggravated assault against a peace officer, disarming, and resisting officers.
Inanimate objects have been talking a lot of shit lately, and our drug users have gone on the offensive, taking the fight to them. First we had a a Canadian kid on LSD fighting a mailbox and now meth-head Raymond Garcia decides to take the fight to a stop sign.
I feel pretty confident he was on meth, being that he had superhuman strength and was not phased by tasers, but it could have been bath salts. Maybe he was just trying to eat the stop sign’s face.
Plus it was in New Mexico, and if you haven’t seen “Breaking Bad” their slogan should be: “New Mexico: The Meth Capital of the World”.
