This is, this right here, is why social media and technology sucks.
Yes, you definitely shouldn’t be flipping cars, but 20-25 years ago, if you really, really wanted to flip a car in celebration of your team winning the Super Bowl, you could get away with it without having to worry about catching a charge the following Monday.
This also shows the inexperience of Philly celebrating championships, as any seasoned psychotic fan base would know to conceal their identity before the destruction of major property.
While Philly tore itself apart on Sunday, most of the incidents were on a large, unarrestable scale. However, when you flip a car in the middle of the street and face directly into the camera after doing so, that’s a different story entirely. And unfortunately, 20-year-old John Rigsby learned that the hard way.
Police have arrested a 20-year-old man for damaging a vehicle while celebrating the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl victory Sunday night.
Philadelphia police say the suspect, identified as John Rigsby of Malvern, Pa., was among a group of seven individuals who flipped a 2017 Nissan Rogue SUV onto its driver’s side door, causing dents and scratches.
The incident was caught on camera around 11 p.m. Sunday on the 1400 block of Walnut Street in Center City. On Tuesday, Rigsby was arrested and charged with Vandalism and related charges.
The kid’s only 20, so he’ll be bounce back eventually, but this will definitely be a difficult one to explain during job interviews. My buddy once set a couch on fire and that shit followed him like the clap.
And let this be a lesson, kids: if you’re going to raise hell, do it off camera.
