Truther Crime Blotter
At least this time it wasn't for murder or statutory rape.
Darren Pearson says he had a swell time Monday night, pushing around police officers and intimidating patrons of the Vancouver Club, each of whom had paid $500 to hear former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney speak. “It was so much fun,” Mr. Pearson said from his home Wednesday. “I can’t tell you how much fun I had. I was laughing my ass off, jumping into that mosh pit.”
And the hapless Vancouver Club employee, whom Mr. Pearson is accused of assaulting with a chokehold? Well, whatever. Mr. Pearson isn’t about to make amends, much less apologize to the man who received minor injuries. Mr. Pearson admits he is the 51-year-old male whom Vancouver police arrested and charged after his alleged attack on the employee Monday night. But he isn’t prepared to discuss that in detail; he’s waiting to speak to a lawyer before his initial court appearance, still to be scheduled.
Monday’s arrest was not the first for Mr. Pearson, a conspiracy nut and founder of the Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society.
