A Glendale man has been arrested after yelling racial slurs and hitting a man over the head with a beer bottle.

Joseph David Burgoyne, 28, was at Denim and Diamonds Bar in Mesa when he allegedly yelled "white power" and "nigger" at the victim. When the victim confronted Burgoyne, Burgoyne allegedly attacked him with a bottle, injuring the back of the victim's head.

After security removed Burgoyne from the bar, he took off his shirt to reveal his tattoos, police say. Burgoyne has "CWB" tattooed on his neck, which he later told police stands for "Crazy White Boy." In court paperwork, police call the Crazy White Boys "a documented criminal street gang with white supremacist ideologies."

On a cellphone recording from the parking lot, Burgoyne is heard yelling "Fuck niggers" and "I don't give a fuck, I am a racist," police say. He then allegedly yelled more racial slurs at a woman in the lot. Police did not identify this woman or the male victim.

Burgoyne left the scene but was arrested at North Power Road and East Adobe Street in Mesa at 1:14 a.m. He racked up four charges for the attack: aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, participating in a criminal street gang, threatening or intimidation, and disorderly conduct.

In an interview with police, Burgoyne denied hitting the man with a bottle, though several witnesses told cops they saw the incident and heard Burgoyne immediately call the man "nigger."

Burgoyne told police that the man said something to him at the bar -- police did not report what Burgoyne alleges the victim said -- to which he replied "white power." Burgoyne told police that he wanted to intimidate the victim with the words.

Court paperwork also alleges Burgoyne yelled, "I hate niggers" at some point, though it is unclear when this occurred.

The arresting officer, a gang expert, wrote that the Crazy White Boys gang "has a history of violence toward minorities. Members of this gang are also known to contact victims and witnesses on behalf of the gang to influence the investigation."

The state opposed an unsecured release of Burgoyne, alleging that he was trying to locate the victim after the assault and that the victim was fearful of retaliation. Burgoyne's bond was set at $10,000.

Court paperwork did not list any prior arrests of Burgoyne.

Lock that little sucker up in arpaio's gulag. He'll be much happier there, knowing he's close to arpaio.

What about the federal charge of violating a person's civil rights? Last I checked, this qualifies.

It only going to get worse as the white population shrinks & they lose their grip on this country. The dude looks Hispanic.

Not illegal to report on arrests. Most mugshots are public records, and are for people that have been accused of a crime, but not convicted.

At least hes not a closet racist that hides behind the internet to post racist remarks, he took it out there and put it down. Foolz had to call the cops when shit got real. I dont care for any kind of "supremacist", white, brown, black, yellow, or aborigine, but if you can back up what you believe in and other katz cant hang...so be it.

I know if I were going to pick the Supreme White Man, he wouldn't look a thing like that.

Not to mention, that name sounds kind ... French.

As a white person, I'm embarrassed. Glad he was charged with a hate crime.

Anytime someone puts a tattoo on their neck we should probably just immediately send them to jail to save time.

"Illegal Alien Gang Member Arrested" "Black Gang Member Arrested" .....these are headlines you won't see in the New Times.....BUT.....anything White is fair game. Pathetic. Grow some New Times and start doing some real reporting.

This person will be a useless sack of flesh for the rest of his life. I really wish we had a place for these people. Stick them all on an island somewhere and let them hack it out.

Seriously, what so called "Rights" of that violent gang banger was violated? He instigated the attack and the whole thing was unprovoked by the victim. Racist gang bangers like him automatically hate anyone who isn't white. They are the first to initiate violence, just based on the someone's skin color.

Do you think the police should be allowed to secretly arrest people and put them on trial secretly?


Where were you when this sort of stuff got taught in elementary school?

That's one thing society has never been able to figure out.


We can't shoot them, we can't dump them in a giant hole in the ground, so we are left with the choice of either releasing back into society or spending a lot of money keeping them locked up in a cage.
