This story however is pretty weird, a murder suspect decided to attend a Charlotte Bobcats game in the VIP section and then subsequently got caught.
We get more from Pro Basketball Talk:
Members of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team arrested 24-year-old Earl Barranco during the game, according to WCNC-TV, the Observer’s news partner.
Undercover officers took down Barranco in one of the VIP areas of the arena before 8 p.m., but police didn’t have more details on the arrest Sunday morning.
Barranco was apparently in the VIP section for the game, and was arrested before 8 p.m.. The game started at 7 p.m.
You would think that if you were wanted for murder that you wouldn’t go to an event as public as a Charlotte Bobcats basketball game but I guess you can say that even criminals cannot stay away from the allure of a 1-5 NBA team.
