Man, Clad Only In Boxers, Allegedly Goes On Rampage Inside Pricey Beverly Hills Eatery

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 restaurant’s managing partner, Steven Piano.

“I’m guessing at least 50 bottles of wine were destroyed,” said Piano. “There was two inches of wine on the wood floor.”

Piano added, “It’s 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.

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.

Nobody said two inches deep, or, maybe the floor has a hollow.

It's not like he didn't try to find a wine that goes with face...

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...

Can’t. Have to check with the person who encountered JB in person and get their permission.

Does anyone know where Harry Reid was when this happened?
Even if it wasn't this particular douchebag senator, it can't be too long before we hear stories of the good senator standing beneath the glass stairs of some Vegas cassino in his rhinestone undies clutching his 50 year old Kodak Brownie and taking photos of teenage boys.

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.

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”.

Maybe in a 2ft x 3ft broom closet, but not on a restaurant floor. Maybe a beer tap opened and spewed...

I know roadies. They can tolerate a lot but they have their breaking points. You don’t want to reach it.

they probably don’t serve “Two Buck Chuck” wine there, either.

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.

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 ;)

Good one.

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”.
