Man Allegedly Leaps from Balcony at Bring Me the Horizon Show, Injuring Three; Charged with Assault
We’ve all been worried about the current state of stage diving. But if our goal is to anticipate possible danger and thereby avoid injury, it turns out we might be facing in the wrong direction. From Reverb:
“A man has been charged with three counts of third degree assault after allegedly jumping off a balcony and landing on concertgoers at the Ogden Theatre on Feb. 13, according to police.
“Alex McCormick, 23, was seen approaching the balcony at the Ogden Theatre during the Bring Me The Horizon and Of Mice and Men concert when he allegedly jumped on concert goers below, causing head and neck trauma to two victims and minor injuries to a third, according to Lynn Kimbrough, communications director with the Denver District Attorney.
“McCormick then allegedly fled the scene and was arrested at 10:39 p.m., according to Kimbrough.”
Well yeah no doy jumping off the balcony is a stupid fucking idea. I wonder if this kid was really fucked up or just really stupid or some combination thereof?
