Remark About Man's Florida Shirt At Baton Rouge Strip Club Leads To Armed Car Chase

Everett L.Beauchamp arrested after assaulting another person after his Florida shirt was commented on.

File this one away in the "You can't make this stuff up" category.

According to the Baton Rouge Advocate, 32-year-old Everett L. Beauchamp IV engaged in a drunken, armed car chase after taking exception to a remark made about his orange Florida Gators t-shirt in a Baton Rouge strip club.

Per police reports obtained by the Advocate, Beauchamp was at The Penthouse Club in Baton Rouge at 2:15 a.m. Friday morning when one member of a six-man bachelor party made a comment about Beauchamp's UF t-shirt.

Beauchamp first picked up a stool from the valet entrance and tried to assault the man, and things just further deteriorated from there. 

Beauchamp threatened to get a weapon and walked to his vehicle to get a handgun, the report says, at which time the men drove away in their vehicle.

Beauchamp followed them in his 2013 Ford Raptor down College Drive onto I-10 eastbound, the report says. The men exited at Essen Lane, only to get back onto I-10 going westbound, at which point Beauchamp tried to ram his vehicle into theirs.

Beauchamp followed them onto the interstate and as they reached the I-10 westbound, I-12 eastbound loop Beauchamp opened fire on their vehicle, striking the vehicle once under the driver’s side taillight.

Ultimately, Beauchamp was found by police after he ran his SUV into LSU Lakes. He was found to have a 0.19 BAC and was booked on six counts of assault by drive-by shooting, one count of aggravated criminal damage to property, DWI, reckless driving, failure to maintain control and one count of illegal use of a weapon.

They sure do take their football seriously in the SEC.
