A lesbian BBQ smooch prompts brotherly brawl

Add this share

When the cops are called, it usually means bleached clothes, hacked email, smacked faces, stolen wallets and breakups gone bad. But not for this Atlanta lesbian couple, whose loving peck on the cheek prompted an outburst turned brawl ending with an arrest.

Cue the Blotter Diva from Creative Loafing:

A 34-year-old woman said her big brother has been staying at her Lakewood Heights home for a while, so she took him to a Sunday barbecue party on Livermore Street. The woman kissed her girlfriend at the barbecue and her brother got upset, yelling that what they were doing wasn’t right in front of the kids. Words started flying and the woman’s brother and her girlfriend started brawling. The woman said she tried to break up the fight and got shoved to the ground.

When cops arrived, the brother admitted that he said he doesn’t believe it’s right for his sister and her girlfriend to kiss in front of kids. The brother said he tried to walk away, but the girlfriend started “talking nasty” and punched him in the eye, so he hit her back.

The cops didn’t buy the brother’s she-hit-me-first story and took him to jail on a battery charge. Blotter Diva’s tip: Never let intolerant relatives stay inside your home when they visit. Make them stay at a hotel — and pay for it themselves!
