This just goes to show that even the best music in the world can turn ugly if sung too many times by your drunken boyfriend at his birthday party.
A 23-year-old Colorado woman named Samantha Malson was arrested this weekend after she choked out her boyfriend for singing “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore over and over, even when she asked “25 times” for him to stop. Unfortunately, it was her lover’s 26th birthday that evening and the victim was wasted (as birthday boys tend to get), leading to an unfortunate altercation in which Ms. Malson literally started choking the life out of her boyfriend rather than listen to lines like “Savin’ my money and I’m hella happy that’s a bargain, bitch” and “I’ma take your grandpa’s style, I’ma take your grandpa’s style.”
While Ms. Malson was busy demonstrating the shoving/choking gestures that she performed on her boyfriend because “He just annoyed me,” the police ran her I.D. and found there was a warrant for her arrest for failing to appear in court for a previous assault charge. As she was being led away, Ms. Malson told the police it wasn’t fair to arrest her for “self-defense.” Unfortunately, assaulting one’s sense of good taste is still legal in Colorado.
