Man, 74, Arrested For Vandalizing Kim Kardashian Books At Barnes & Noble
Meet Carl Puia.
Like many of his fellow Americans, the 74-year-old Connecticut man dislikes “Kim Kardashian and people like her.” This fact emerged yesterday after Puia was arrested for destroying six copies of “Selfish,” Kardashian’s book of selfies, at a Barnes & Noble near his Glastonbury residence.
Seen above, Puia turned himself in on an arrest warrant charging him with vandalism for allegedly pouring “a red liquid” over the books last October. Puia, cops report, “left a lengthy typed note for Barnes and Noble stating his dislike for Kim Kardashian and people like her.”
Puia, free on $2500 bond, is scheduled for a March 22 court appearance on the misdemeanor criminal mischief charge.
Published in 2015, “Selfish” contains hundreds of photos Kardashian took of herself. Upon releasing the book, Rizzoli described the author as a “trailblazer of the ‘selfie movement.’”
