Man Tells Cops He Can Shoot Illegal Fireworks With A Blunt In His Hand All He Wants Because ‘This Is America’

It takes an impressive performance to win “Most Fourth of July,” but I’ve got to award it to Quinnlan O’Meara, of Des Moines, Iowa.

Because he Fourth of July’d hard.

Police were called to his house around 4:00 a.m. after receiving a noise complaint and issued a warning, saying that if he shot off more fireworks, he would be arrested.

He did not listen.

I’ll let KWQC take it from there, because this is a tale that needs no varnish.

Officers returned to find O’Meara walking out of his apartment “holding a firework in one hand and a lighter in the other.”

A police report says O’Meara told officers he planned to light a roman candle from his front door.

O’Meara also told officers that when he got out of jail he was going to light another firework “with a blunt in his mouth because this is America.”

Police say when they asked O’Meara to take a preliminary breathalyzer test, he responded “that he would take a preliminary go [expletive] yourself test.”

Go ahead. Try and claim that you America’d harder than this man.

You didn’t.
