|Don't call Carlos Gross -- or anyone else -- a "n**ger."|
If you know what's good for you, don't use the word "nigger" around anyone
-- but especially not around Carlos Gross, who allegedly beat a Mesa man with a baseball bat after he claims the man dropped an N-bomb while the two were chatting in the parking lot of a gas station Sunday night.
According to court records obtained by New Times
, Gross and the victim are acquaintances who bump into each other on the streets every now and again.
About 11:30 Sunday night, Gross drove his red pickup truck to a convenience store at 816 West University Drive in Mesa where he bumped into the victim, who was talking to the clerk outside of the store.
According to the victim, he apparently knows that Gross has problems with drugs, and asked him why he started using again.
This, apparently, pissed off Gross, who the victim claims called him a "cracker" before getting out of his vehicle and grabbing an aluminum baseball bat from the back of the truck. The victim says Gross then walked towards him and hit him in the shoulder with the bat.More »
