Severson isn't allowed on SA property for a year. Where will he get his breakfast tornados in the meantime?
Here's an idea for a reality show -- Uptown Bros: Drunk Suburban Men Wild Out in the City. And the story of Andrew C. Severson, a 25-year-old Rosemount resident, would've made for a great first episode.

According to his Facebook page, Severson headed Downtown last Saturday night to party with friends. After bar close, he found himself at the SuperAmerica off Nicollet Avenue South and 35th Street. It was there that he let his inner bro run wild.

From the Southwest Journal:
Andrew C. Severson, 25, of Rosemount, was cited for trespassing after an incident in the Super America parking lot in which Severson, apparently inebriated, hurled racial insults at a cab driver and refused to pay the man. [Around 2:45 a.m. an] officer witnessed Severson ransacking the taxicab, looking for a lost glove. Severson, according to police, told the driver to learn how to speak English and to go back to his own country. The cab driver told the officer he just wanted Severson out of his vehicle and no longer wanted to collect his fare.
The officer's involvement didn't make Severson any less belligerent, apparently. More from the Journal:
Severson told the officer that his uncle is a sergeant in the Bloomington Police Department and demanded a ride home from the officer. The officer declined, and Severson threatened to file a complaint and said he had good lawyers. The officer gave Severson his badge number. Severson went into the gas station and made telephone calls seeking a ride. Then, he began offering customers $100 for a ride home. He found a willing driver, but before he left Severson began looking into the officer's car and causing a scene in the parking lot. That's when Severson was asked to leave. He refused, and the officer cited Severson for trespassing. He's not allowed at any Super Americas for a year. Severson told the officer he has "blue blood" in him and that the officer wasn't living up to the code of conduct.
$100 for a ride home, eh? Well, I don't have any firm plans this weekend, so maybe I'll head down to SA and keep my eyes peeled for drunken, rideless bros.

A. 35th and Nicollet is not Uptown. B. Stay in Rosemount, douchebag.

By the sound of it, $100 would not have been worth giving him a ride home.

"The officer declined" - He should have offered him a ride to detox.

Way to glorify a douche bag. He's probably proud of the recognition.

And now the local women have a good pic for the "do not have sex with this one!" wall of shame.

Typical suburbanite coming into the big city on the weekend and acting a fool. I live near a number of bars in NE and see it all the time. It is not the city people that make the city trashy and dangerous. It is idiots like this person. Please stay in your suburb and just hang out at an Applebee's or something.....kthanks

See it all the time, some people think that coming into the big city is their chance to act like idiots and demand special treatment from everybody around them.  You're not special bro. Everybody from the city is acting civilized.  Some people from the suburbs are scared of the city because they believe it's dangerous, but locals here are always on the lookout for suburbanites running a muck.

Must have received some "blue blood" treatment to have not been arrested on drunk and disorderly, or theft (refusal to pay cab fair).

@jmurray50  "Everybody from the city is acting civilized."  Even the ones who are shooting each other in North Minneapolis, and the hoes, pimps and thugs who hang out at the bus stops downtown?

Yours is exactly the attitude of said douche bag, above. The city is just a cesspool anyway, so its okay for us to go down there, get all wasted and behave like complete lunatics.

@keny1 That's quite the slanderous assumption of people waiting for a bus ride home from work.  Sounds like you're scared of the city.

@jmurray50 Um....go look up the statistics of murder in the suburbs vs. Minneapolis.  There goes your argument.

@schmoopers @mitchell39 @keny1 @jmurray50  The TC are relatively safe compared to most metro areas of the same size.  There are criminals, like the bro, who like to get drunk and hurl racial epitaphs at people just trying to do their job

@keny1 @jmurray50 I don't think there's a problem with suburban lunkheads hanging out in North Minneapolis, is there?

Also having lived in Chicago, DC, Oakland, and Minneapolis, I'm finding this fear-driven notion that Minneapolis is a crime-infested cesspool to be rather amusing.

I'm also enjoying the couched racism!

@jmurray50 Um....the people whom I am referring to don't work.  They just wait for their EBT card to be reloaded each month.
