I guess it was only a matter of time before a bell ringer heard “no” one too many times . . . and snapped.


There’s a 40-year-old guy named David Kelley in Germantown, Maryland.  And last week, he was working as a bell ringer, collecting donations outside the grocery store.


Well . . . David took some PCP.


And after that, he started getting into arguments with the people who walked by . . .  yelling stuff including, quote, “I am John Wayne” . . . and gyrating his pelvis yelling, “Ladies!”


Eventually, he PUNCHED a guy in the face.


The cops came, and after he shrugged off a few shots from their Tasers thanks to his PCP POWER, they wound up tackling him.  He could be facing assault charges.
