    An incident at the Bridgeport Village Regal Cinema in Portland, Oregon, involving multiple law enforcement agencies, turned out to be a comedy of errors. During the movie Prisoners, an elderly man stood up and urinated. It is believed he may have been drinking. The urine fell on a teenager sitting in the row in front of him. This upset a nearby woman who started yelling "Gun!" over and over. Theater patrons began running for the exits, and someone called 911, which led to "a massive response from multiple agencies."

    Investigators tell FOX 12 they quickly figured out what happened after talking to the 14-year-old boy and his family.

    My Comments, after I quit laughing so much, so that I can actually type: What the Heck? So if I jay walk, can I claim PTSD? I actually find that determination to be an insult to the people who have real PTSD.................. Oh, you just have to peruse the short article............... And we thought CA was the land of Fruits and Nuts..........or at least some of them moved to OR.

    I wonder ... perhaps the elderly drunk's hydrant was held in the shape of a gun. Hmmmm. Send that man to bed without his cookie.

    One thing's clear, though: yelling "Gun!" while being urinated on in public isn't an infringement of a person's 1A rights, apparently, despite being in a movie house.

    You were right, A. Can't make this stuff up.

    Nicely, though, the 14yr old held his water. Apparently there is hope for the future.

    The woman who started yelling gun IS guilty of several misdemenors. I hope they find her and charge her, because it's actually pretty dangerous to roll all those people for what is essentially a cry of "Wolfe".

    They have a saying in Portland. " Keep Portland Weird". They do a pretty decent job of living up to their standards.

    A multi-award situation:

    Urinating in public, ostensibly drunk in public -- the man.
    Causing a riot in a public space, without cause; possible public hallucinations/intoxication -- the woman.
    Deadpan calm worthy of a medal -- the teen who was peed on.
    Deadpan calm worthy of a medal -- the LEO's who arrived, who heroically refused to laugh until out of earshot.
    Who knows how many who were trampled, if truly a riot situation -- unk.

    Are you talking about "Idiocracy" or the most recent presidential inauguration.


    By the way... That woman did see a gun... granted, it was a pee shooter

    If we could give the Portland Metropolitan area including the urban portions of Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties to Washington, Oregon would be a conservative state.

    Is it possible that the old geezer thought he was holding a lethal weapon?
