Murder Suspect Arrested at a Magic/Bobcats Game

Who says that nothing exciting ever happens at a Bobcats home game? The Observer reports: “A man wanted in a deadly shooting in New York City was arrested Saturday night at a Bobcats game in Charlotte. Members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team and state and federal agents arrested 24-year-old Earle Barranco during the NBA game, according to police. Undercover officers captured Barranco in one of the VIP areas of Time Warner Cable arena around 7:45 p.m., according to WCNC-TV, the Observer’s news partner. Police said he was arrested without incident. The game wasn’t interrupted by the police activity.”

    Not a bad idea, not that he doesn’t deserve to be arrested, but kinda smart to try to blend in with a crowd of thousands of people..

    smart dude though. Nobody would look for him at a Bobcatks game

    ^^^^^^smart? He got caught. He was a wanted man. Obviously someone there saw him or something else led the cops to him. He was dumb for going around so many people when his face is on the news.

    The whole crowd should have screamed DEFENSE. He should have gone to an arena that actually sells out, he would have been harder to find.
