A 22-year-old gay man being identified only as “Joseph” was a victim of an anti-gay beating outside a bar in Missoula, Montana very early Sunday morning, according to the Wipeout Homophobia page on Facebook,
The Missoulian also confirms Wipeout Homophobia’s posting:
The man had gone to the Missoula Club to celebrate his 22nd birthday, and it was outside of that establishment that the attack took place:
The man told police he’d asked people about the location of a gay bar, when someone asked him to step outside for a cigarette, Brodie said.
But the man said that when he left the bar, someone hit him, and then two more people joined in, Brodie said.
The incident happened at 1:30 a.m. Sunday and the man reported it to police at 4:30 a.m., after he got home, Brodie said.
According to Missoula news KPAX “Missoula Police say they’re considering the assault a misdemeanor.”
UPDATE: 6:19 p.m.
…the Missoula Independent and MPD obtained video footage that shows Baken doing a backflip on Higgins Avenue and sustaining the injuries, lacerations to his face, that have been depicted on social media sites, during the landing.
Baken will likely be charged for making a false report, according to police.
The little shit should be foirced to apologize the LGBT community and have to do service at a crisis hotline for this stunt. . How many people in that area will now be disbelieved because of his lie.
What an incredible asshole.
