From the Baynews9 website, a local man and "Jackass-the Movie" aficionado learns that real life is not a "Jackass" episode...
In Bradenton, an 18-year-old man was arrested for allegedly giving wedgies to people outside of a movie theater.
Bradenton Police arrested the man on Sunday. A police report says the suspect likes to video pranks and is known for harassing and annoying people in and around Manatee County then putting the footage on YouTube, similar to a "Jackass''-style show. One of his recent videos - of the man kissing strangers - has gotten nearly 400,000 views.
Police say the suspect grabbed people by the back of the pants and pulled them up, hard. Several victims said they were too embarrassed to press charges.
The Defendant was booked into the Manatee County Jail on battery charges and was released Monday on a $750 bond. At the time of this writing, it was not yet known whether he has retained a criminal defense attorney.
