Today’s Unsurprising Costa Mesa news

Note for non-locals: Tony’s Place is a dive bar of a particular sort: a haunt of semi-retired felons. Most of them are over-the-hill cirrhotic carnie mumblers. This guy was apparently still sparky at the advanced age of 42. The last sentence is the best.

  1. I knew Chris
    I saw this and called the bartender at Tony’s to find out what happened. The reason no one saw anything is because there was no fight. The guy just whacked Chris across the back of the head with a pool cue and everyone turned around when the heard a loud whack sound. He immediately lost consciousness fell to the floor. Blood was flowing out of his ears. This guy was so fucking crazy that he walked back up to the bar and sipped on his drink and giggled to himself until the cops got there. No one had ever seen him in there before. Chris is in critical condition and lapsing in and out of consciousness.


  2. William Marsh works for a towing company called Dedicated Transportation Services in Garden Grove now. He grabbed my car at a property that I parked just for a minute while I dropped my groceries off in my apartment and he swooped in and grabbed it. He got out of his truck and starting yelling at me and bumping his chest onto mine. What a crazy psycho! Beware of this guy! And a company knowingly hires a guy like this is just as bad in my opinion! What other dangerous people work there? And they come onto my property?
