A Hero Cowboy Lassoed A Crazed Drunkard With A Gun
And they say that the art of cowboys’ trade is dead.
Georgia’s Memorial Day Weekend rodeo was going just fine until a local resident had one too many and started shooting from a gun. He could’ve presented a significant threat to general safety, if there wasn’t for one particularly ingenious cowboy who incapacitated the irresponsible drinker with his lasso.
The event, held every year in Bartow County, is organized by the local church and its pastors (to make matters even more ungodly for the intoxicated gunner). Celestino Moras, the man in question, was not among invitees but still showed up. Upon being asked to leave, Moras got quite enraged and, being under the influence of alcohol, and started firing from his pistol. This caused a few hundred people present to run away. Until he ran out of ammo, that is.
When he used up his final bullet, one of the rodeo participants used his lasso and disabled Moras, tying him down from a distance. The distraught but outraged rodeo guests then proceeded to beat him in retaliation, until police arrived. Luckily, no one was killed and four people sustained minor injuries.
The unnamed cowboy did not want to get any media exposure and decided not to give any official statements on the incident. Still, we salute him for his act of bravery and decisiveness.
Moras is now being charged with aggravated assault. Whatsmore, the inspection has shown that he may very well be an illegal immigrant and is possibly looking into a deportation. And that, our friends, is a textbook example of how not to keep a low profile if you’re looking for asylum in a foreign country.
