TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO……
The owner of an Iowa bar named “The Pour Bastards Pub” was busted for letting drinkers flout social-distancing rules — then ripping up the charge sheet when served at his bar.
When cops first confronted Charles King at his Newton pub on September 4th, he allegedly told them he did not believe in state-issued guidelines and would let in anyone who wanted to be there.
Officers returned last Thursday night to serve him with a criminal charge for public health violation — which he tore through with a pen and ripped from the officers’ clipboard. The bar owner was then hit with extra charges for struggling with police who arrested him.
He was then also charged with possession of contraband in a correctional institution when he was allegedly found with a vape cartridge that contained 87.2 percent THC and .2 percent CBD. King was released on a $5,600 bond with his initial appearance set for September 29th.
