A South Carolina man claiming to be the son of a Senator was arrested in Cambridge, Massachusetts this week and charged with assaulting a police officer following a nightclub incident.

Christopher Hollings, 31, of Columbia, S.C. is alleged to have punched and kicked a Cambridge police officer responding to an altercation at The Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub in Cambridge early Friday morning.

Prior to his alleged assault on the cop, Hollings was “visibly intoxicated, yelling obscenities, and trying to strike patrons,” according to a report in Wicked Local, a Cambridge outlet.

Following the assault, Hollings is said to have screamed at the officers, saying “do you know who I am? My father is a senator. I’m going to have your job!”

Whoa …

Ernest F. “Fritz” Hollings, 91, represented South Carolina in the United States Senate from 1966-2005. Before that, he was governor of the Palmetto State (1959-63) and Lieutenant Governor (1955-59). However his four children are all much older than the individual arrested in Cambridge.

Hmmmmm …

This would be a much better story if it was about a black man named Thurmond. Rewrite.

YES: there is a politcal twist…but not how you so punch-drunk think:

It’s like this: if the police officer is White…Obama will BASH him for doing his job…Obama will say the perp was being discriminated against…

That is, of course: if the perp is a black Leftwing Radical idiot (see Skip Gates) will care…

IOW: Did the Perp look like obama’s son, if he had one?…that is how we determine law and order in the US, today…

I’ll now take questions….

Ok, Chickenhawk, I’ll bite with a question.

How is it you are so freakin’ stupid? Is it because you watch Faux News and it creates cognitive difficulties? Or is it your momma got the vapors prenatally so your stupidity comes honestly from your genetics and because of that you watch Faux News?

Burning questions of our time, Chickenhawk. What is to be done? Quarantine you in a camp for the afflicted? Or perhaps expose you to reality-based news? I know, I know, that would shock your fragile psyche. Get back to us little t-bagger when you get some insight. We’ll leave the light on.

C’mon now, who among us has not has not been tossed from a bar and drunkenly claimed to a police officer that we have “connections” and will “have his (or her) job”?

Let us not cast stones, people!!

Pro tip :
If you actually have “connections”, politely exercise your 5th Amendment right (ie:STFU) and let you connections help you out at a later time.

If it was reported that he said, in a Foghorn Leghorn voice :

“Ah say, ah say, boy…..look heeyah…mah dayuhdy is ah Yoonited Stay-uts Senahtah…”

…..it would have added a lot of creedence to his story.

Cambridge cops lock up Senators, judges, house members and other various and sundry political parasites on a routine basis. I suspect young Mr. Hollings toted an ass-whooping as well. Having matriculated through Cambridge, I can assure you that the Cambridge Constables on Patrol do not take kindly to being assaulted.

Chris is actually Fritz’s grandson, not son. And I’m not surprised that he was drunk and letting everyone know who he’s related to.

He was so drunk he thought his grandfather was his father? And was still a Senator?
