Beer Pong Can Be Hazardous to Your Health
If you take away one thing from this blog post, let it be this: don’t play beer pong with this guy.
Last Friday night, an intense game of beer pong led to a fatal shooting at a home in Montgomery County.
Joseph Jimenez (pictured on the right) was playing beer pong with Scott Riley when an unknown rule infraction led to an argument. After the game ended, Jimeneze went out through the front door and Riley went out the back door. However, they soon met up in an adjacent alley and began hassling each other.
According to court documents, Jimenez claimed that Riley had said, “Shoot me! Shoot me! You guys ain’t got the b—-!”
Jimenez pulled a .40-caliber Taurus handgun from his waistband and shot Riley once in the neck, police said.
Jimenez left after he shot, but returned with his hands still covered in blood after police had arrived and told them that his gun could be found in a nearby garbage can. Riley, who went by the nickname ‘Fat Dude’, died at the scene of the crime.
Jimenez is now in custody and being charged with: first-degree murder, third-degree murder, carrying an unlicensed firearm, possessing insturments of crime, and false reports to a law enforcement officer.
