Bourbon Beatdown Caught on Tape


It was a harmless rendition of that old throw-the-guy's-phone-on-the-roof prank that ended with someone unconscious. In the 900 block of Bourbon St. on April 1, two men found a phone on a table, and decided to throw it on the roof and let it fall to the ground. It broke. According to police, the man returned later to find the phone, and beat one of the men until he was out cold. Police are looking for the man, who rendered injuries that resulted in facial surgery to the cell slinger. Video of the incident compiled by NOPD is after the jump, and it's pretty ugly.
