Do not mess with 1) the Wu-Tang Clan, or 2) Rob Koebel.
Police say a man in Wisconsin -- who had just finished taking a leak outside an Apple store -- asked officers if they knew who they were "messing with" when they tried to talk to him about the incident.

We'll tell you that the cops were "messing with" former KNXV-TV (Channel 15) reporter and Sheriff Joe Arpaio suck-up Rob Koebel.

Yes, the same Rob Koebel who donated to Arpaio's campaign, served his DUI sentence in Arpaio's deluxe jail suite, and introduced the Dan Saban "rape" story to the public.

According to a local website that obtained the police report, Koebel -- now working as an investigative TV reporter based in Milwaukee -- was caught by a security guard peeing outside the Apple store a few weeks ago.

The report says Koebel kept playing with his phone when the cops showed up, and when an officer told him to hand it over, he said, "No, do you know who you're messing with?"

According to the website, Koebel was being a bit of a jackass, telling the cops not to "play games" with him, and asking police if they would like to "take the gloves off."

He also fell over at one point, and brought an officer down with him, according to the report. Koebel also called an officer some names, including a slur for homosexuals, the report says.

Koebel's friend said there had been some drinkin' goin' on.

Media critic Jim Romenesko says one of the station's exectives told him that Koebel is "no longer with" the station.

Wasn't the a TV anchor here that got all "don't you know who I am!!" with the cops when she got busted for shoplifting a couple years back?

 

Seems these folks have a very high opinion of themselves!

karma. he brought out the story that accused dan saban of rape (proven to be false) and now he may have to defend himself against a sex crime charge (urinating in public is an indecent exposure charge)

A recipe for failure: Take one marginally intelligent person, add copious amounts of liquid stoopid, blend with public urination, and produce one former television reporter. Unfortunately for him, and those he will victimize, this likely won't be his last time.

Another Joe Arpaio supporter caught urinating in public, I hope no kiddies had to see the show like when the last Arpaio supporter was caught taking a whiz in public.

 

Rob should be grateful that he is white and it wasn't a MCSO Deputy he knocked down.  If he had been brown and pulled that in Arizona he probably would have been shot and almost certainly would have been charged with felony assault on a cop.

The Flaccid Fool of the MCSO is just pure poison/bad karma. Everytime there's a "Joe suck-up" or a politico endorsed by the 80 year old serpent. They fucked up one way or another.
