Man says he was beaten by Six Flags Discovery Kingdom security guards

A 19-year-old said Sunday that he was beaten by security guards while celebrating the July Fourth holiday at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, leaving him with a concussion and broken bones in his face. Corey Carlson said he had done nothing to warrant the alleged attack. But his account was challenged by a spokeswoman for the amusement park, who said Carlson had to be subdued by security officers after he was ejected for smoking marijuana. The spokeswoman, Nancy Chan, said Carlson had punched one officer in the face.

Broken bones in his face? Uh, broken nose perhaps? Small price to pay for being a dumbass.

Subdued after smoking weed? Unless it was laced with something else the only thing anyone has to be subdued from after a few tokes is snacking! ;)

I don't get why this is even news worthy. So someone in California smokes pot? WOW. And after reading the full story he admits to screaming obscenities at the guards hours after being ejected from the park. If anything they should have added trespassing charges if possible to this kids charges.

I'm thinking he bought some "substandard weed" from the security guards....explains why he was angry instead of relaxed, why he had to be subdued, and why he stayed to yell at them instead of hitting a local convenience store for chips and soda. Someone got a better explanation? ;)

He gets ejected, and his brother, girlfriend and cousin stay in the park for several more hours? Even they didn't want anything to do with this loser. He must be a real sweetheart if he was able to consult with a lawyer on a Sunday of a holiday weekend.
