Accidental photobomb leads to beating, 3 arrests in LoDo
The Denver Channel.com ^ | 08/15/2013 | Scripps Media

DENVER - Three people are facing charges after a man accidentally photobombed them and he was beaten into unconsciousness.

The charges stem from a May 11 incident in LoDo when the bars let out and the defendants were taking photographs of themselves near 14th and Market streets. The unidentified 30-year-old victim accidentally walked into one of the shots, police said, and one of the suspects, Bryanna Warren, 25 began arguing with him and hitting him.

According to an arrest affidavit, the victim pushed Warren away and began walking away but was followed by Warren and Lindsye Newton, 25, as the argument escalated. Police said the victim pushed them both away and was then knocked unconscious by the third suspect, Terrell Moore, 27.

A police sergeant witnessed the blow to the victim's head, and said he tried to protect the victim on the ground from the growing crowd. At one point, the officer's attention was diverted and when he turned back, he said saw Newton hitting the unconscious man in the face with her purse.

Both Newton and Warren were charged with third-degree assault on an at-risk adult "for allegedly continuing to assault the victim while he was lying unconscious on the ground," according to a news release.

Police initially charged the trio with public fighting but a medical report said the victim sustained permanent blindness in his right eye, facial fractures and intra-cranial hemorrhaging. That's when the charges were upgraded.

3rd degree misdemeanor for this kind of assault. I don’t get it? I have a friend with felony charges dealing with something far less than this. I’m so sick of these people.

A little clarity from the last time this was posted.

The man pictured has been gainfully employed by the Denver Air Force Reserve Center for some years. One of the women works in the payroll office of Starz Entertainment, LLC. Little is known of the other woman.

However, this indicates that the three are not typically troublemakers. But there is nothing known of the alleged “victim”, as his identity has not been released.

This leads me to suspect a lot of alcohol was involved, especially by the “victim”, and he was not just strolling by, was was being actively nasty, offensive and maybe even grabby of the females.

Chances are we don’t know the identity of the victim because he’s white.

Nahhh. He's black...

Wow! That's like a supersized Trayvon! You could empty a couple Kel-tec 9's into that one! If you lined them up just right, you could probably drop both his accomplices with one.

For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction in Nature. It's one of her immutable laws. These Amish are really piling up the karmic debt.

...I had to look-up LODO.

I'm still trying to figure out what a "photobomb" is. From the story, it appears that if you walk in front of someone taking pictures, you have committed some sort of social no-no that requires even females to attack. Usually I mutter 'Sorry', duck a little and walk on. Have I missed class the day this became an insult of the first order?

It’s becoming increasingly comment for newspapers and other media to not print “victims” names.

I also did a Google street view of the cross street and it is both spread out and mixed use. Not very grungy, a redeveloped area. The only bars I could find was a closed piano bar, next to a place called the Oak Tavern, which is a sports bar.

I dunno. It would seem to me that continuing to pummel someone when they are unconscious on the ground might be a slight overreaction.

Judging people on the basis of what is reported in the media is bad enough -- you don't need to compound things, by introducing baseless speculation into the mix.

Since the MSM doesn’t and won’t print important facts surrounding the case, but will imply villainy, I’m just presenting the flip side of the coin.

I find it easy to imagine a respectable man out with two women, both of whom may be polite people, when they are abused by a drunk, reasonable odds of which outside a nightclub. It was noted in the story that the man who was beaten first pushed one of the women, who objected and followed him complaining, and then he pushed the other woman, before being punched by the man.

Importantly, when the policeman arrived the three were still enraged at the beaten man, most of whose injuries probably happened with the first punch.

The initial call of the police was that it had been a “fight”, which implies physical aggression from both parties. This charge was upgraded when the extent of his injuries was determined.

What clouds the issue is first of all race, which truly does not seem to be a factor in this yet. The race of the beaten man is unknown, nor can it be determined as of yet.

I agree too much is not known.

I wonder if this guy was super soft and an easy mark, it doesn’t really even make a lot of sense to me. Rarely if ever, does a black guy who is by himself look at me in a menacing way, nor would I, him. I always strive to look edgy and mean while minding my own business. I am not saying the guy couldn’t kick my ass, but I at least like to give an impression that you are better off finding someone else to screw with.

And my point is I can’t imagine two women starting in on me for something like this. Frankly I wouldn’t even engage them, I’d shrug my shoulders in an apologizing way, and keep right on walking. Perhaps he was stumbling around and drunk? Again not saying the guy deserved it, I am just wondering why so much detail is left out.

So, no evidence that anything other than what is reported happened but you imagine something else happened and the victim really wasn't the victim and deserved what he got.

I see now.

The prosecution would have loved to have you on George Zimmerman's jury.

The thing is that what was reported made no sense, for several reasons.

To start with, the guy who punched works in a respectable job and has for years, the Denver Air Force Reserve Center. The one woman that has information online about her works in the payroll office of Starz Entertainment, again implying that she is a respectable person.

I think the key is the photobombing. I truly doubt that he was just walking by and aggravated them. That just doesn’t make sense. What does make sense is if he not only was being obscene, but persistent when they made it clear they did not want him in the picture.

But even that is not typically enough to make people angry, and especially to make women pursue angrily. This takes some real provocation, if you think about it.

Now, that provocation might have been the beaten guy shoving her, which was reported in the story. But the final straw was that he likely said something offensive to her.

That was enough to make *both* women angry at him, stranger still. Yet only when he shoved the second woman, again reported in the story, did he get punched.

This scenario, or something near to it, makes sense; whereas the reported story does not. That the police initially regarded it as a “fight” matters, as does that the policeman on the scene tried to protect the downed man “from the crowd”. Now why would he need to do that?

Again you are imagining a scene with absolutely no evidence unless you have other reporting. The story says that one woman started assaulting the man, he pushed her in defense and tried to walk away when he was attacked again.

I don't know what the victim's race is but if he is White then it makes perfect sense. That area has had a huge upswing in multiple blacks attacking lone Whites.

Not only there but across the country over the last 5 years.

Thanks. I didn't know that.

Some people that live in the NW Florida panhandle sometimes say that they're from LA....(ahem) Lower Alabama.

Not many people know that either.

There will be (I hope) more clarity after the initial court hearings scheduled for the 22nd and 23rd. Right now there are so many glaring gaps in reporting that judgment should be suspended all around.

However, I will note that this neighborhood in Denver has had more than its share of outrageous assaults and homicides, likely attributable to a bar catering to the unruly. This is perplexing in its own right, as it has been redeveloped, and has kind of a wide open layout of mixed use businesses, according to Google street view.

(Update: the puncher has been charged with 2nd degree assault; the two women with 3rd degree assault on an incapable person, which is a class 5 or 6 felony.)

There were violent assault incidents there last July, April, and a racial incident in 2010 where the victim later said “he felt pressured by the police to fabricate an injury so that his 10 attackers could be charged with felonies.”

Photobomb is appearing in someone else’s picture, unbeknownst to subject and photographer, in a way that seriously detracts from the intended picture.
