Asst Football Coach Pisses on Scruffy Murphy's!
Danny Severe, a bartender at Scruffy Murphy’s, 1226 Speight Ave., said the incident happened around closing time as employees were getting people out of the bar. Schnupp had been drinking for a couple hours, Severe said, when an employee saw Schnupp urinating on one end of the bar. Police officers were already at the bar for an unrelated incident, Severe said. “While we were kicking everybody out, he apparently thought that nobody was looking and whipped it out and (urinated) on the bar,” Severe said. “He tried to deny it, but there was definitely a puddle and there was no one else around him.”
When a story like this breaks, we're not sure whether to be happy there is something other than the outcome on the field to focus on or depressed about the shame of an old-fashioned bar-piss. Either way, it makes for entertaining copy. Thanks to our hordes of interns and special contacts within the Trib organization for alerting us to this whale of a story. So readers, what is the most entertaining sports scandal of the past year: Dave Cunningham's bomb threat? Latara Darret's Cameron Park knife fight? Schnupp's tinkle?
