Emerson was at The Saloon when he allegedly decided to use his cigarette as a weapon.
Bouncers' faces are not ashtrays, you guys.

While most of us would never have to be reminded of that, it's a lesson that Matthew Salvatore Emerson apparently has to learn the hard way.

Emerson, 22, faces third-degree assault charges after attempting to put his cigarette out on a bouncer's face at The Saloon in downtown Minneapolis.

According to KARE 11, on March 20, Emerson tried to use the bouncer's face as an ashtray, but didn't stop there. In the course of the melee he also bit the victim three times on his hands and forearm.

The bouncer lost "a substantial amount of blood," police say.

Emerson remains in custody. If convicted, he faces (no pun intended) up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Welcome to Minneapolis.................

Come for the Diversity..........Stay for the stabbings, shootings, muggings, and bloodshed!!!

Minneapolis:  A twisted hybrid of Chicago, Detroit, Mogadishu, and Mexico City.....all wrapped up in a blanket of White Liberal Guilt.....The only thing we need now to make our "Diversified City" complete is the New Black Panthers.  Bring it on!!!

You must have been confused (which is probably a normal state of mind for you) Jody, this is not Fox News' website. Now run along and go get fitted for your white robe and hood.

You are correct.  I apologize.  This is after all, the City Pages: The Bearer of Minnesota Liberal Propaganda (aka Lies) since 1975.

I will have to agree.  As for him turning his life around...Matt has no hope...I'm hoping that his son never has to see this.

Jody...Have you been to Minneapolis lately.  I'm not talking about the hoods and shitty parts of Minneapolis that every single major city has but the portions of MPLS that are not the focus of media when crime happens.  Not to be disrespectful, but it's very apparent that you only see MPLS through the news.  Yes.  Those areas suck.  But MPLS is large and the diversity you speak of is what America is about.  I live and grew up in B.P. Once again, not the shitty area where you see it on the news and become proud of your 100% white, non diversified, boring, place where 12 yr olds can call their mom bitch at Target with no punishment, but I live in a diverse neighborhood where all people bring something exciting to the neighborhood.  Go eat a meal at Rudolphs on Lyndale or visit the live bands on the patio at Mad Jacks on Brooklyn Blvd. in Brooklyn Park then when you make a comment trashing other peoples neighborhoods we can take you seriously.
