Two fire-breathing bartenders face up to 45 years in prison each for performing flaming bar tricks.
Jimmy's Old Town Tavern owner Jimmy Cirrito said his bartenders have been entertaining his customers -- by juggling bottles of alcohol and spitting out streams of flames using matchbooks and lighters -- for more than a decade and no one's complained. But shortly after midnight on July 24, two of his longtime employees were hauled out of the Herndon bar in handcuffs and charged with three felonies each plus other misdemeanors
"They were being treated as if they were terrorists, charged as if they intentionally tried to burn down the tavern," Cirrito said.
This is the stupidest thing I ever heard of. The bartenders are facing 45 years in prison for entertaining their customers. There are many murderers, rapists, child molesters, drug dealers, etc. that face less time for their crimes but instead, they want to throw the book at two people who aren't hurting anyone.
That's Fairfax County, Virginia for you.
