Camera-Shy Texas Tridenthead Assaults Photographer With His Skateboard
Meet Johnathan Washburn.
The 23-year-old Texan allegedly assaulted a man who, intrigued by Washburn’s coiffure, made the mistake of photographing the skateboarder Monday night on an Austin street.
According to cops, Washburn clobbered the shutterbug in the head with his skateboard after the man refused to delete the image from his camera. That request was made by Timothy Beard, a 19-year-old Washburn pal who has been accused of stealing the man’s sunglasses.
Washburn, facing a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, remains jailed in lieu of $12,000. Beard, hit with a felony theft rap, is also at the Travis County lockup, where he is being held on $7500 bond.
Presumably, Washburn was more cooperative when posing for the above mug shot taken by sheriff’s personnel.
