Man Celebrates Tony Stewart's Sprint Cup Victory By Firing Gun In Air, Getting Arrested

Tony Stewart NASCAR’s Sprint Cup by winning yesterday’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It was a thrilling victory that no doubt entertained the thousands of people in attendance who did not vote for President Obama. Stewart’s win especially delighted one fan in Clover, South Carolina. Via WCNC:

Police say Young admitted to shooting his 9mm handgun in celebration of Stewart’s victory.  An officer told Young to “stop the shooting because he had been drinking and it was dark.”  Police left his home, but five minutes later they received another report of gun shots.

According to the report, an officer returned and again spoke with Young while he held a beer in his hand.  Young told officers he shot his handgun four more times and was then arrested.

All I can say is, yee freaking haw. This guy is a danger to everyone around him, but he’s also pretty awesome. This man is America.
