Obviously, we hope no one ever assaults anyone. Give peace a chance! But goons hoping to get away with such a crime should know better than to stand in front of a bus camera en route to their chosen butt-beating locale. That's what the man in the photo attached here is accused of doing on May 31, shortly before putting a guy he encountered in the parking lot of a Broomfield-area McDonalds into the hospital. Of course, this act may not have been premeditated, in which case his pose isn't quite as stupid as it seems. Still, he would have been a lot better off limiting the damage to the impact a Big Mac does to the average intestine.

Read the Broomfield Police Department release below:

On May 31, 2009 officers responded to an assault that had occurred in the McDonalds parking lot off Hwy 287 in Broomfield. The suspect fled the scene on foot prior to the officer's arrival. The victim had to be transported to a local area hospital with injuries that have resulted in a felony assault charge. The suspect is described as a white male, 20-23 years old, 5'11, 180lbs, blonde crew cut hair, wearing a shirt with a cross hatch pattern in green and white, light colored shorts, and tennis shoes.

The suspect was picked up by RTD at the Lakewood Commons bus stop and dropped him off at 5th and Alter Street in Broomfield where the assault occurred.

Anyone with any information about the suspect, or this crime is asked to contact Detective Kurt Wederquist at 303-438-6468. You may also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.nococrimestoppers.com. You will remain anonymous and could receive a reward of up to $1,000.
