(Newser) – Things got rowdy at a rodeo in Bartow County, Georgia, over the weekend when guests asked a drunk man to leave. Instead, police say Celestino Moras, 25, stood up and started shooting, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution. One other unidentified person also started firing, and four people ended up with minor injuries by the time the dust had cleared. But the absolute best detail comes from WSB-TV, which reports that when Moras finally ran out of bullets, a rodeo cowboy lassoed him. The crowd then held him until police arrived to charge him with aggravated assault.

Local authorities will turn him over to ICE. ICE will look towards Obama and then let him go so the violence can recycle.
