Florida Man Beaten With Bat Over Ethnic Dis: "This Is What Happens When You F*** With a Puerto Rican"

Categories: WTF Florida

So a Puerto Rican and a racist white dude walk into a Central Florida bar. It didn't end well.

Thirty-eight-year-old James Moore told 24-year-old Carlos Javier Gonzalez that he didn't like Puerto Ricans. Instead of trying to patch up cultural misunderstandings, Gonzalez beat Moore with a baseball bat.

The incident occurred at 1:45 a.m. Wednesday at Gator's Dockside Restaurant in the Orlando area, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Gonzalez had accused Moore of drinking his beer, which Moore denied. According to the police report, Moore then said that "he didn't like Puerto Ricans." The two exchanged a few more choice words, but then Gonzalez walked away.

However, Moore wasn't done demonstrating his hate for Puerto Ricans. Gonzalez's girlfriend told police that as the couple was leaving, Moore ran at Gonzalez with a baseball bat and hit them.

Moore ran away, but Gonzalez followed him and took control of the bat. He hit Moore repeatedly in head with the bat and yelled, "This is what happens when you fuck with a Puerto Rican!"

Gonzalez then threw the bat in the bushes and left.

Police arrived to find Moore with a bloodied and bruised face. They arrested Gonzalez at a nearby gas station. He's now being charged with attempted murder.

well sounds to me like self defense someone were to hit me with s bat and run like a bitch he'll yea I would chase his ass down take the weapon from him them beat his ass with the weapon and leave him there I beat a grown ass man learned his lesson the hard way. I'm not just saying this cause my homeboy is the one that beat him but I know him and he wouldn't have done anything if he wasn't provoked

Regardless of whether he's right or wrong, PRs are disgusting. And before you call me rascist...PR is an ethnic group, not a race. So I'm an enthicist, not a racist!

Yes I'm sure the ethnic dis, to which Gonzales walked away, was the cause for the beating. Im sure it wasnt the asshole hitting him with a baseball bat.

That guy Moore got what he deserves. Don't go around looking for trouble and expect for someone not to take action. Even if Gonzales did hit him 27 times he deserved it. Everyone has problems n ur never know what was going through Gonzales mind when this happened not to mention that he was drinking! This was self defense! The fact that racism is still going on is ridiculous. Everyone bleeds the same but different in many ways which make us all unique. No one is better than anyone. I hope Moore is okay n he is able to learn from this.....I hope this ruling is in everyones favor.

As if race matters. Moore was BLACK, not white.. Another thing that needs to be made clear is that Moore WAS NOT drinking and DOES NOT drink so the assumptions of Moore taking the beer were unnecessary.. Also Gonzalez's GIRLFRIEND stated that Moore hit them with the bat, yet neither of them had marks on them that solidify that story!! Gonzalez has only a scraped elbow, not bat markings.. And Edwin Zayas, the second guy they arrested yesterday, told a false story to authorities when first questioned, and come to find out, repeatedly punched Moore in the chest while he was down with a smashed face.. If one lie is now coming to light, I wonder how many others.. Moore should've never gotten the bat, and nobody knows why he got the bat in the first place.. Cagans (where the bar is located) tends to be a rough area, maybe protection, or maybe ignorance, who knows but regardless of him getting the bat or not, that doesnt mean to pummel his head in 27 times, beat him in the chest while he is down, and then just leave him there in the parking lot while you go across the street to the store.. Its a sad world-SAD SAD WORLD!! 24 years old, still so young and immature and will now have to live life in a prison cell-Not to mention Zayas has a wife who is expecting a baby very shortly.. I wish people would just cut this dumb shit out, really..........

Having a tiff does not condone violence.This story does not make sense however. Where did Moore get the bat?

Also It is SO IMPORTANT not to leave your drink unattended and you won't have to worry about someone fucking with it.
