Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

May 2, 2011 -

Three men attending Shinboku-con 2011 in Westlake, Ohio this weekend ended their attendance to the three-day anime/video game/culture event by going to jail. Police arrested two attendees of the anime and video game conference at about 7:15 p.m. on April 30. The two men, a 27-year-old Cleveland resident and a 21-year-old Canal Fulton man, got into an argument over how the younger gentleman was playing an undisclosed video game. The younger man was so agitated by the critique that he punched the other man in the mouth an hour after the initial argument. Police arrested the younger man for assault. The older man, proving just how stupid he is, decided to spit on an officer. Both men were released later that evening.

On the same day police returned to the Holiday Inn where the event was being held for another call. At around 8 p.m. an 18-year-old Lorain man started damaging hotel property. Coincidently, the suspect turned out to be the brother of the 27-year-old Cleveland man who was arrested earlier in the evening for spitting on an officer. The 18-year-old had left the hotel when police arrived, but was arrested later in the parking lot of the nearby Board of Education. He and a friend were waiting there while another 22-year-old man checked to see what happened to his brother. Officers arrested the 18-year-old for criminal damaging and underage consumption of alcohol. They also arrested the 18-year-old friend for underage consumption. Both were later released.

Maybe a few less morons will attend next year’s Shinboku-con. In case you did not know, Shinboku-con is an annual event that features video games, anime, card and board games, tournaments, cosplay, exhibitors, and more.

Re: Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

Anime Central in Chicago is one of the largest conventions in the midwest. The festivities technically start on Friday, but over the past few years, it's been getting so big that the accidents and incidents have been starting Thursday night and going constantly the whole weekend through.

With the frequency of conventions of all kind, you need a network of people just to keep up with all of the crazy crap that happened over somes tupid stuff that ended with some people getting dragged away in cuffs or on a stretcher.

Hell, I once went to a con where a girl in the room next to me got alcohol poisoning. Turns out she was underaged and the con didn't come back for another year at that hotel.

Oh, it could be worse. You could live in the same state as Jack Thompson. *sigh*

You mean the man who would have these events banned throughout the country by selling the BS that things like these are normal at such events which is why they ever hire security?

Re: Three Arrested at Shinboku-con 2011

Yes. In my state. Disbarred mind you, but still in my state. Can anyone's state beat that? ;)

Andrew EisenThat doesn't mean there has to be a movie though. Having said that, I've no doubt that we will eventually get a Black Panther movie. But Stan Lee will probably learn about it around the same time you and I do.09/02/2014 - 2:34pm
MaskedPixelanteWell they have to get to him eventually. Captain America's shield didn't grow on a tree, the minerals to make it had to come from somewhere, and that somewhere is Wakanda.09/02/2014 - 2:31pm
E. Zachary KnightYes, but it has never been confirmed as in development, or even pre-production.09/02/2014 - 2:21pm
MaskedPixelanteBlack Panther's been on the short list for a while.09/02/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightIt is possible that Stan Lee mispoke. I don't think he knows everything Marvel movies. But it is a sweet idea if true.09/02/2014 - 2:04pm
Andrew EisenSo says Stan Lee who almost certainly wouldn't know.09/02/2014 - 2:04pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.cinemablend.com/new/Marvel-Black-Panther-Movie-Confirmed-By-Stan-Lee-66993.html Black Panther is apparently getting a movie. And maybe one for Black Widow, even though I think it's too late for her.09/02/2014 - 1:53pm

Andrew EisenHence the "Uh, yeah. Obviously."09/02/2014 - 12:53am
SleakerI think Nintendo has proven over the last 2 years that it doesn't.09/02/2014 - 12:31am
Andrew EisenSleaker - Uh, yeah. Obviously.09/01/2014 - 8:20pm
Sleaker@AE - exclusives do not a console business make.09/01/2014 - 8:03pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that, despite the presence of a snopes article and multiple articles countering it, people are still spreading a fake news story about a "SWATter" being sentenced to X (because the number seems to keep changing) years in prison.09/01/2014 - 5:08pm
Papa MidnightAnd resulting in PC gaming continuing to be held back by developer habits09/01/2014 - 5:07pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that the current gen of consoles is representative of 2009-2010 in PC gaming, and will be the bar by which games are released over the next 8 years - resulting in more years of poor PC ports (if they're ever ported)09/01/2014 - 5:06pm
Andrew EisenMeanwhile, 6 of Wii U's top 12 are exclusive: Mario 3D World, Nintendo Land, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, Wonderful 101, and ZombiU. (Wind Waker HD is on the list too but I didn't count it.)09/01/2014 - 4:36pm
Andrew EisenLikewise, only two of Xbox One's top 12 are exclusive: Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome (if you ignore a PC release later this year).09/01/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenNot to disrespect the current gen of consoles but I find it telling that of the "12 Best Games For The PS4" (per Kotaku), only two are exclusive to the system: Infamous: Second Son and Resogun.09/01/2014 - 4:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/09/01/beyond-two-souls-ps4-trophies-emerge-directors-cut-reported/ MMM MMM, nothing quire like reheated last gen games to make you appreciate the 400 bucks you spent on a new console.09/01/2014 - 4:24pm
Andrew EisenThat's actually a super depressing thought, that a bunch of retweeters are taking that pic as an illustration of the actual issue instead of an example of a complete misunderstanding of it.09/01/2014 - 4:20pm
