AZ. Police Arrest One After Pride Attack

Rest easy, readers, for at least one of our great nation’s not-so-great homophobes has been arrested:

A 24-year-old Flagstaff man has been charged with aggravated assault for an incident following a gay-pride festival that police called a hate crime.

Travis A. Reiner also faces misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct charges. Three other men were arrested but have not been charged.

Flagstaff police reports say two men who had attended the Pride in the Pines gay-pride festival were assaulted. One victim, who is gay, was briefly hospitalized.

Police said one of the suspects made anti-gay slurs.

We’ve said it before and we’ll no doubt say it again: crime doesn’t pay. Unless you’re a robber, but definitely not in this situation…
