BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA.com) Beverly Hills Police said a man clad only in his boxers went on a vandalism rampage Thursday evening inside a fancy restaurant in the 400 block of N. Canon Drive.
Authorities said they received a call at 9:52 p.m. saying the man was destroying property and throwing glasses around the Enoteca Drago restaurant.
Officials arrived on scene about a minute later and got into a foot pursuit with the man.
The suspect reportedly ran south on N. Canon Drive where he ran into traffic. He allegedly slammed into a car and damaged the windshield.
Police said they needed a Taser to bring the man down to handcuff him. At least half a dozen officers had to subdue the man.
The suspect was later identified as 29-year-old Kishane Karim Almendarez of Los Angeles.
Almendarez was arrested for felony vandalism after being taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.
Officials told CBS2′s Cristy Fajardo they believed Almendarez was likely under the influence of drugs.
A witness said Almendarez threw glasses at patrons, knocked over wine bottles and shattered a TV screen inside the restaurant. Prior to the rampage inside the restaurant, witnesses said the suspect went up and down the street creating chaos.
No one could make sense of what was going on, said Beth Braun, another witness. He was half undressed, bottoms gone.
Fajardo spoke to the restaurants managing partner, Steven Piano.
Im guessing at least 50 bottles of wine were destroyed, said Piano. There was two inches of wine on the wood floor.
Piano added, Its like he was just quietly, calmly, destroying property.
The suspect is scheduled to appear in LAX Court next month.
Police said no officers or members of the public were hurt during the incident.
Men wearing briefs never do this sort of thing.
50 bottles of wine could not possibly create two inches of wine on the floor. Once again, nobody in the mainstream media appears able to practice good journalism.
Bath salts. At least the cops got to him before he ate somebody.
It's not like he didn't try to find a wine that goes with face...
Some day when I have permission, I'll tell a funny Justin Bieber story...
Or maybe someone is planning on filing one heck of an insurance claim.
Curiously, every drop spilled was from nothing but the most expensive bottles in inventory, too...
Carlos Danger Weiner? Is that you?
That you Mr Wiener?
Can’t. Have to check with the person who encountered JB in person and get their permission.
In fact I'd bet a weeks pay check on it.
This was progress:
The liberal patrons at those digs prefer to consider poverty as somehow romantic and pure. They like poor people in minorities as a group in the ABSTRACT —they’re quaint, see?
They can AFFORD to pity them and shower their kind with accolades, and vote their way, BUT:
When a half-nude, 400-lb one just smashed your Cabernet and begins swinging his schlong around in your face, well, eh....
DAT KEEPIN’ IT A LITTLE *TOO REAL* NOME SAYIN’...?!
He educated these rich L.A. liberals that day, and however indelicate, the fact remains that this is PROGRESS.
The only question I have with bieber is when does he come out of the closet...
Alright. This is going on my “bucket list!”
I have an alibi.
I don’t think I’d admit to knowing someone who encountered Justin Beiber...unless it was Selena Gomez.
Side note .. Selena just turned 21!
It almost matches her IQ. :-)
Bieber’s is off the chart.. he has ‘pap fever’. Yeah right
Dang, this is like 2 miles from me. And here I am, lying around in my jammies, guzzling vodka, and freeping, and missing all the fun.
Ah, but the circumstances involved JB riding a Segway and deliberately cutting in front of a heavy cart full of roadie equipment.
The idea was that the peon would be forced to stop or swerve or otherwise yield to his “better”.
These are little boutique-like places, so yes it could.
” Its like he was just quietly, calmly, destroying property.
Better that than ACTUALLY destroying property..
But that’s the way things are done now. In case you don’t want to DO a thing..you can like, do a thing.
Maybe in a 2ft x 3ft broom closet, but not on a restaurant floor. Maybe a beer tap opened and spewed...
Sounds like he may have been part of the Boxer Rebellion.
He spotted a female and wanted to copulate, so he was displaying.
Put me on your Justin Beeber ping list, please.
Maybe a nice Chianti?
I know roadies. They can tolerate a lot but they have their breaking points. You don’t want to reach it.
Allegedly. It may have been the ghost of Ted Kennedy.
they probably don’t serve “Two Buck Chuck” wine there, either.
(or maybe they DO, but it ain’t $2 on the menu, that’s for sure!)
Reporters today are not journalists, they are high school dropouts who repost pooled stories.
Steven Piano should have called Tony Soprano; they coulda hadda duet.
Damn, woman! Take off them jammies, guzzle more vodka and go bust some place up!
I could get my 15 minutes that way, couldn’t I?
But thats the way things are done now. In case you dont want to DO a thing..you can like, do a thing.
It was in the grocery store recently that I was subjected to the most recent onslaught of the “like” babbling. A young woman, who looked to be about college age, was talking in a very animated way to a woman who seemed to be her mother. She was also blocking the aisle, so I had to suffer the inane chatter even longer. Finally, I spoke up by saying, “Excuse me...like”.
If I was a bit more quick witted, I would have said, “Can you... like...excuse me?”
Exaggerating just a little bit, huh? The insurance company isn't going to buy that.
So? Lock him up.
Hah! I know exactly what you mean..but what’s worrisome is when I hear people say OMG out loud instead of Omigawd.
It’s somehow connected to not learning cursive,don’t you think? Entire parts of the brain are not being used to, LIKE, think ;)

Where, I wonder, did this come from? It is so ubiquitous. Several months ago, I was shopping in another state while on vacation. For several minutes I was in the vicinity of a couple who had to be late forties/early fifties. The female’s talk was peppered with “likes”. Based on that and the way she was dressed, if I had not caught a glimpse of her, I would have assumed that she was in college. Left me guessing that she has a daughter of that age and likes to think she is “one of the girls”.
