He Got Beaned But Good

“Every scar has a good story,” says Carlos Harris, a bouncer at a lounge in Ft. Myers, Fla. “Every scar.” The story for the gash above his eye: he told a patron to leave because he lit up a joint. The man refused, so Harris threw him out. “When he went around the front, somehow between the back and front door he picked up a can of beans,” said another bouncer. “Where he got it no one knows.” But security camera video shows the man pull the can out of his back pocket, rear back, and throw it at Harris. Stunned, Harris went back to see what had hit him, and found the can of beans, “all caved in,” he said. “I was like, really?” Police arrived and arrested Dezmen Silas on drug charges, as well as assault, DUI, and theft. “Who throws a can of beans,” Harris wondered, “and where do you get a can of beans at a nightclub?” (RC/WINK Ft. Myers) ...Obviously, someone doesn’t know beans.
