There are some threats, like “my dad is going to sue you if you touch me,” that you just laugh at when you’re in a good, old-fashioned gentleman’s disagreement. Then there are threats like “I’ll gut you like a fish” that make you realize you can’t sue anyone when you’re dead and in the back of a hillbilly’s pickup truck where your insides are soon to be made into soup when you get back to his trailer. In a story that feels like it could only happen at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, a man was arrested by authorities after threatening Kappa Sigs with a razor blade.
Two fraternity members reported the man who had been found sitting outside the frat house on a bucket told them he worked for the university and was there to fix a lawnmower. When he was asked to leave the privately-owned property, the man allegedly reached in his pocket and took out a small razor blade. The students said he then shouted threats at both of them and said “I’ll gut you like a fish,” as he left the property.
Yep. That there is an animal you don’t poke. I bet this guy doesn’t even fish.
I don’t care how many times you’ve gotten into a fight because someone would call you a pussy if you didn’t. This, right here, is a man with nothing to lose. Sure, they may repossess his trailer and use it for evidence in your murder trial, but I still think that means he gets the last laugh.
The man, identified as 59-year-old Barney Lee Doles, is being charged with terroristic threatening. At last report, he was being held at Pulaski County Jail, which should stop him from gutting anyone like a fish for at least a week..
