Gothamist: This weekend, four people were arrested after a violent, slappy brawl aboard an F train. The incident, which happened near the West Fourth Street station shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday, reached its nadir when a man in an 8-ball jacket loudly slapped a woman who had been yelling and hitting him, sparking a wild melee. Now, the charges against Jorge Pena, the 25-year-old 8-ball jacket wearer, have been dropped entirely. Initially, Pena was charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct in the incident. He spent four nights in jail after the fight, but his lawyer says charges were dropped after authorities ​determined he was acting in self-defense. “This time the system worked,” attorney Cary London told the Post. “Thank God for smartphones because the DA’s office was able to have all of the information in front of them at an early stage to show that our client did nothing wrong and acted in self-defense.” London says that allegedly drunk straphanger Danay Howard had been making fun of Pena’s jacket and his slight speech impediment when she started hitting him in the face with her 6-inch stiletto. “He’s not an aggressive guy. He’s like Andre the Giant,” London said about his client, adding that he plans to press charges against Campbell this week. Howard, 21, has been charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct. Kevin Gil, 21, was also charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, and Shanuique Campbell, a 21-year-old female, was charged with felony assault and disorderly conduct.


Whoa! I had no idea this guy had to spend 4 days in jail. Guess that’s the price you pay these days for getting bullied and hit in the head with 6 inch heels. The moral of the story here is that you don’t take the subway at 5am EVER. And that attorney is right, thank God for smartphones or else this guy probably would’ve been spending a lot more than 4 days in jail. Free at last, free at last, thank God you’re free at last!
