Three white riders in the Metairie St. Patrick's Day parade were pulled from a float and arrested Sunday after they were accused of hurling packs of beads and a racial slur at an African-American in the crowd, hitting him and others -- including a baby -- in the head, according to a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office arrest report.
Brandon Burke, 19, and Thomas Doussan, 18, both of Metairie, and Colby Painter, 19, of Kenner, were each booked with three counts of aggravated battery, according to Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.
Injured were a 27-year-old black man who had swelling around the middle of his face, an 11-year-old white boy whose face was visibly reddened, a 25-year-old white woman who had bruising and swelling around her left eye, and an infant whose injuries were not available Monday, according to Fortunato.
Allegedly, the 27 year old threw a beer can into the float when he didn't get a stuffed animal for his daughter.
What a bunch of idiots.
