Elmo Attacker Detained for Mental Health Evaluation
Don't mess with Elmo. He's all furry and red and cute, but if provoked he will throw down and beat your a$$. That's exactly what happened over the weekend in Winter Park, Fla., according to a report by CNN.
Elmo or, more precisely, Jeremy Trespalacios, the guy dressed up like him, was working an event at a toy store, and decided to take a walk to a nearby guitar store. Another guitar store customer -- perhaps because he prefers Grover -- started throwing punches.
Elmo emerged victorious when, now sans head and gloves, he shoved the attacker head first into a glass display case. No worries though, all agree Elmo was simply defending himself, and no charges will be brought against him.
Big week for Elmo after his involvement in boobgate.
