Damn, subby wasn't kidding.  What a stupid reason to shoot someone.

Good luck getting any act to play your venue now, Mr. Ferrell.

That Arab native guy

See, Smoking Kills.

Arab?

Do they pronounce it Ay-rab?

Yes, as a matter of fact.  There's an Arab, GA, too, also pronounced Ay' rabb.

Apparently this bar will be on Bar Rescue tomorrow night?

That's what someone in the article comments said. I like the show as well, even if it heavily edited.

Smoking kills.  Duh!
 
2013-11-24 02:01:56 AM  
When the sign says "No Smoking", they mean it.
 
2013-11-24 02:12:44 AM  
I guess it is true, there are people biatching at Spike TV on twitter not to air tomorrow's episode of Bar Rescue bcause it features this guy.  Personally I want them to air it, so I can see this guy and maybe get some satisfaction out of Taffer treating him like shiat.

Oh God, can you imagine the free publicity.  They're probably already filming the extra coda:  "The owner shot and killed a patron shortly after this episode was filmed."
 
2013-11-24 03:59:50 AM  
On one hand, a smoker was killed.  On the other hand, he was killed by gunshot.

Mike Bloomberg must feel really conflicted right now.
 
2013-11-24 07:24:22 AM  
Just to watch him die.

Now that will be awkward.

\and really, is he just a local act or is he supposed to be someone I could've heard of if I listened to Southern Pop?

I think the guy was entitled to the slow version myself

fark you anti-smokers grumpy.  You should have a smoke.

I hate cigarettes, but a gun is never the answer.

√ - Country singer
√ - Killed from a barfight
√ - Over no smoking rule
√ - Native Arab killed
√ - Self defense/stand your ground

Hell all we need now is a time machine to have 2001 era Toby Keith turn that into a song. shiat It'll be the biggest hit song to play at all of the pro-Iraq war counter protests.

/Yes I feel bad for him dying, cause now I'm more likely going to hear his music then when he was alive.
//Oh, Lord! We'll have to endure the horrible music of the Big Bopper, and then the terrible tragedy of his death.
///You just read that in Farnsworth's voice oh my yes

Wow. I thought people in Massachusetts were anti-smoking.
 
2013-11-24 08:01:30 AM  
Was this guy Mylie Cyrus' father, or Lady Gaga's lesbian lover?  If neither, I don't think I have heard of him before...
 
2013-11-24 08:06:17 AM  
Headline fails to mention that the "victim" could easily have been carrying skittles. There's really no way to know until after the whole thing is over.

STAND YOUR GROUND!

Something about "Butt kicking", no doubt
 
2013-11-24 08:41:32 AM  
I'm guessing it wasn't REALLY about the smoking.

"'Music City Mess" - A country music snob with an explosive personality turns to Taffer for help".

I'd say if anything, DirecTV's description for tonight's Bar Rescue is something of an understatement.
 
2013-11-24 09:30:06 AM  
Hence the smoking gun theory.
 
2013-11-24 09:35:09 AM  
The situation would have made  the perfect country song if a woman was involved.
 
2013-11-24 09:35:54 AM  
Too funny. Why wouldn't a gun owner de-escalate a minor situation by calling the cops, but instead let it get out of control to the point of pulling a gun? And this was the owner of the bar, who should know how run a bar. Has he never seen "Roadhouse"? Be nice!
 
2013-11-24 09:37:41 AM  
DAMN that sucks.....dude was awesome back in the day playing at Harry's. Good times and goo music.


But......Play stupid games,win stupid prizes
 
2013-11-24 09:38:39 AM  
It will be interesting to hear the details once they come out, but in the meantime...

The "breaking" news on that site is farking crazy. How was this not all over the national news, especially after what they did to the baby? More details about the case here.
 
2013-11-24 09:43:33 AM  
  "According to CBS station WTVF, the Arab native was shot around 5 a.m. at the Pit and Barrel Bar on Second Avenue. "

Was the bar owner standing on a beach?

Southerners ( well, Rednecks)...it's part of the culture....

/ not Southern, but there are some hicks & rednecks in my State ( Oregon) who would also "solve" problems this way...
// kinda puts the lie to the "Portlandia" image that we have nationwide, IMHO.

Staring at the sea, staring at the sand.

According to his official Facebook page, Mills died Saturday afternoon.

Who in the hell updates their Facebook page after they die?
And how do you react to that?  Do you "Like" a status update that says "I am dead LOL"?
 
2013-11-24 09:58:52 AM  
Police said Ferrell claims he shot the victim in self-defense. They said he had a valid handgun carry permit

Well he must be telling the truth since we've been told over and over again that law abiding gun owners would never shoot and kill someone otherwise.

I lost a friend of mine a few years ago now, a man well known for following a fringe type of motorsport all over the country. His mother updates his page occasionally, and those of us that knew him touch bases there once in a while.

Spike's site has that episode replaced with "Bar Fight."

I think there's an Arab Alabama too. An Korean Redneck Comedian uses his wife's hometown of Arab in his jokes. One of my favorites was concerning the food in the town. They got a new Eye-Talian restaurant but "it ain't no Olive Garden".

Lets see...Country music singer shot and killed in a Nashville bar by the owner.  I'm sure the bar's person in charge of booking entertainment is doing a facepalm right about now...
 
2013-11-24 10:40:14 AM  
Now he will be famous just like that Biggie Smalls fella .

Alcohol, tobacco and firearms are a deadly mix.

It's Nashville, but not that Nashville.
