Let's face it, concerts are stressful as hell. All those sweaty, sometimes smelly people squished shoulder to shoulder into seats that aren't meant for comfort, expensive beer, cameras and cell phones blocking your view of the show, bathroom lines that rival the lines at Disneyland.
We all suffer for our love of country music, but thankfully most of us stay composed enough not to start throwing objects at passing cars once the concert is over. Unfortunately, that's not true for everyone.
26-year-old Patrick Jochum was charged with criminal mischief causing between $500 and $1,500 worth of damage, a Class A misdemeanor, after he went a bit crazy after the Carrie Underwood concert Thursday night at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas.
According to reports, Patrick, a border patrol agent by trade, was arrested after he began hurling orange traffic cones at passing cars. One driver's windshield was damaged in the cone-throwing frenzy.
When police detained the rowdy cone flinger, he said he was angry because no cabs would stop and pick him up.
Do you suppose he realized that throwing cones at cars is a surefire way to NOT be picked up by a cab?
Bail for Jochum was set at $1,600. It's not known if he posted that or was still in jail.
The good news is if you're not able to get a cab, you can always find a way to get a ride from a cop. Unfortunately, it's usually to jail and not wherever you were hoping to go.
