Stop Him Before He Reaches SeaWorld!
The part everyone’s reporting:
A co-founder for Invisible Children was detained in Pacific Beach Thursday for being drunk in public and masturbating, according to San Diego Police Department.
Invisible Children? Aren’t they the Kony 2012 crew? Yes. Yes, they are.
But wait — Sandy Eggo?
Jason Russell, 33, was allegedly found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, according to Lt. Andra Brown. He was detained at the intersection of Ingraham Street and Riviera Road.
We know that intersection very well — just off the bridge heading into PB. Pacific Beach is Sandy Eggo’s Party Neighborhood. MTV’s Real World filmed some action there. Plus: Beach riot!
But that’s not why we’re running this post — not the news hook, not even the local angle. No, it’s the best line we’ve read all week:
Brown said Russell was acting very strange.
In PB? By what standard?
Invisible Children Co-Founder Detained: SDPD [NBC San Diego]
If he is invisible, where/what is their evidence?
Isn’t the purpose of PB to give the denizens of OB something to which to feel superior?
@Walking Still: I think Dog Beach serves that purpose.
Hey. Jr and I used to stop at every single friggin bear sign on the roads in CA, especially if they were missions. Which mission did people (pirates?) keep destroying? Santa Cruz? And isn’t the San Diego mission bldg a big fat fake and Mission Beach isn’t anywhere near the fake mission?
I’m drunk, okay?!
Yeah, if dude gets to Sea World, he might abuse a dolphin (you all know what I’m talking about).
Damn. Alls I want is a sub and a coke, and I get this scary shit
@nojo: My great grandmother lived in Tent City after she divorced my great grandfather. Not the one in front of the library, the one on Coronado Beach.
Wait. Whoa. Is this Patient Zero spreading the video virus I haven’t caught yet? Oh, fuck.
Diapers? Meh. Everybody touches themselves in public.
@JNOV is like, Peace?: Mission Beach is on the other side of the bridge where Our Hero whacked off. The SD mission is down the street from me — a mile or two inland. (Intersection of The 8 and The 5, if you want to play the home game.)
I don’t get down that way often. Only when I need my Birks fixed.
@nojo: speaking of Birks…
@nojo: We spent spring break at Mission Beach a few years ado, we stayed next to Sea World but avoided the tourist crap. Was he over in Ocean Beach, which I recall as being super sketchy?
Took my fly rod and tried to catch those giant orange bass under some bridge down from the Dana and in the little marina there.
My friend lived down in Mission Beach and it is the neighborhood where I stayed when I visited SD. Lots of douchebags, er bros, in the neighborhood but I wasn’t paying attention to the guys.
I know the intersection where he was spanking it. Man if you’re going to make an embarrassing spectacle of yourself without people noticing that place isn’t it.
@redmanlaw: From south to north: Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach.
Ingraham connects all of them — as you head north into PB from Mission Beach, you cross a bridge that ends at the intersection where Our Hero made history. It’s a major, um, choke point for traffic.
@nojo: We rode bikes from MB up to PB, so we probably passed the spot.
I’m thinking dude must have been all jazzed about how well his shit was doing and celebrated a bit too hard.
@redmanlaw: You wouldn’t miss it on that route. Although I’d sooner jerk off in public than dare to ride a bike on Ingraham. Or most anywhere else in America’s Finest City.
@nojo: There’s a bike path that runs along the beach from the MB amusement park (where Son of RML and I spent several hours at) up to some residential area with an elevation gain in PB.
@redmanlaw: Sounds like you reached La Jolla. Did Mitt invite you in for a Diet Coke?
@nojo: On another trip years ago, I cycled around LaJolla up to Torrey Pines, which I guess is not that far according to a map I just looked at. I was visiting a friend who worked at the playhouse there. We drank a shit load of beer for a few days, went down to Ensanada and hit some dingy punk rock clubs in a seedy part of SD.
@redmanlaw: South La Jolla is really just PB North, so you wouldn’t know you crossed the border unless you saw a sign.
It’s also all a very comfy neighborhood, at least on weekdays. Silent Creative Partner and I used to hang out at a PB coffeehouse, a few blocks from the beach. (I still manage their website, although it’s in desperate need of an overhaul.)
PB would be a pleasant (and relatively reasonably priced) place to live — except for the weekends, when everybody heads for the beach. That’s when the party animals descend, and it can get fucking hellish.
Is that Rush in the middle? Man, the boycott must be really biting hard to get him into a wetsuit.
Ms. Still was raised in SD, and her parents still live there, so I’ve had a fair amount of exposure to the area (none of it indecent).
Oh, and I spent eight years in litigation with the City over how they handle sewage.
