The Daily Record reports:
A student of the Rabbinical College of America* was arrested for punching a man, trying to steal his car and then “mooning” onlookers.
Police were called at 10:27 p.m. Saturday after a resident of Tikvah Way, a residential condominium area for the Rabbinical College community, approached Yaakov Lipskier, 19, of Crown Heights, N.Y., a student, who appeared to be intoxicated and walking on the street.
The resident asked Lipskier if he needed help and even offered him a ride home. Police said Lipskier responded by grabbing the man’s car keys and then got into the man’s car and tried to put the car into reverse.
When the man tried to stop Lipskier, the rabbinical student punched the man in the face, according to police accounts. Lipskier then got out of the car, threw the car keys to the ground and exposed his buttocks to the crowd that was attracted by the commotion.
Police soon found Lipskier farther up the road. He was charged with robbery, aggravated assault, theft and lewdness and released on $5,000 bail.
I guess that farbrengen got a little out of hand.
