When dudes are aching for a little somethin'-somethin', they don't want anyone getting between them and the object of their affection.
But that doesn't mean someone perceived as a cock-blocker deserves to get the ever-lovin' crap pounded out of him.
Rojorlo Naranjo will have plenty of time to learn this lesson -- up to almost two decades in prison. Here's how he punched his ticket to the Big House.
On October 13 of last year, according to the 19th Judicial District DA's office, Naranjo, 58, was putting the make on a young woman riding on a Greeley-Evans Transit bus when the driver told him to knock it off.
At first, Naranjo didn't seem to take umbrage regarding this order. Records showed that he complied with the driver's request.
But he was only biding his time.
When the bus stopped, the DA's office notes, Naranjo walked up behind the driver, who was sitting behind the wheel and strapped in with a seat belt at the time, and began punching and kicking him.

And then, for good measure, he threw the driver off his own bus.
That sounds both painful and insulting -- but Naranjo's revenge soon soured. Earlier this week, he was sentenced for endangering public transportation, a felony, and harassment, a misdemeanor. The combo platter resulted in eighteen years behind bars.
Talk about an expensive bus ride. Here's a larger look at Naranjo's booking photo.
