In what may be the WEIRDEST news story of 2015, a handful of classmates at a local technical college met at a park. One of them was an Army veteran who suffers from psychotic episodes.

On May 4 a group of classmates were having a party at Golden Gardens Park in Seattle. A second group of classmates joined them and one of them tackled another from behind and began choking him. Apparently the attacker was known to put random people in choke holds as well as anger management issues.

When the group broke up the choking the social proceeded, until the victim demanded an explanation from the assailant. That led to a fight and the original group began brawling with the second group. During that fight the assailant gouged out the eyes of the victim and shoved sand in the sockets!
