Man tears photo of A.C. Slater off bathroom wall, gets arrested

AC-SLATERImage Credit: Everett CollectionIf you’re going to go to a bar called Mullets, maybe you should expect to see a picture or two of Saved By the Bell‘s A.C. Slater. But one patron at the Homer Glen, Ill. sports bar was apparently enraged by the site of a framed image of Mario Lopez’s teen heartthrob — and he tore it from its “place of pride above a urinal and [smashed] it on the floor,” according to the Chicago Tribune. “‘I just don’t like Slater,’ the man reportedly told the owner.” The owner called the police in what I can only assume is the best phone call the police have ever, ever gotten.

I’m not sure anyone’s picture in a bathroom could offend me or enrage me so much so that I felt the need to rip it from the wall, but alcohol is a hell of a drug, so, never say never I guess.

Tap into that inner rage, PopWatchers, and let’s hear it: What character’s photo would you angrily tear from a bar bathroom wall? Plus, how can you not like Slater?!

      I’d do the same over a picture of Michael Bolton.

    When I first heard about this, I thought it was from The Onion. Seriously.

  • Sanari

    Screech aka Dustin Diamond. Didn’t like him on the show and don’t like him in real life.

  • Carol

    I’ve got a whole list of people I’d tear from the wall: Anyone from the cast of Jersey Shore, Kate Gosselin, any of the “Housewives” chicks… the list is endless.

    • Tracy Murray

      Me too , but being a Canadian , I need to ask if I can tear that picture of the wall .

  • Kris

    Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton), Naomi Clarke (Annalynne McCord), and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) would make my Top 3.

    This made me laugh so hard: “The owner called the police in what I can only assume is the best phone call the police have ever, ever gotten.”

  • Kel

    Shoot, where to begin… All reality stars beginning with Kardashians, Jersey Shore, Kate Gosselin etc. Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Annalynne McCord…it goes on and on.

    Maybe this guy wasn’t drunk, maybe he just borrowed some ‘uppers’ from Jessie Spano to help him study for the big test.

    • Zach

      “I’m so excited…………”

      Anyone know where Dustin Diamond was?

      Caffine pills are a hell of a drug! I wouldn’t tear down his photo, but Slater was a tool.

    “‘I just don’t like Slater,’ the man reportedly told the owner.”

    This is seriously the best thing I’ve read today. Maybe the guy’s just a hardcore Zach Morris fan. #preppie

  • No Thanks

    And let me tell you all, the bathroom now is just not the same…everytime I walk in there, I shed a silent tear i cant stare at Slater while urinating.

  • Southernlawyernc

    Read for “Chicks Dig the Chicken Fried Mullet”

  • Nat

    Dude, I never thought A.C. Slater could evoke such strong emotions in anyone!

  • jj11

    Team crazy drunk. I hate AC slater too. He just had a cocky air about him even though he was dumb.
