â†µYou know who else is better than you at beer pong? Philadelphia-area resident Joseph B. Jimenez. But not because he’s actually a more skilled player than you, but because if you disagree with him over beer pong, he will shoot you: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥Joseph B. Jimenez, 24, was charged with first-degree murder for allegedly fatally shooting his opponent, Scott Riley, 25, following a game of beer pong at a Bridgeport home Friday night. […] â†µâ‡¥â†µThe murder reportedly stemmed from an argument between the two about beer pong rules (rebuttals or elbow rule ... rebuttals or elbow rule ... I’m going with elbow rule), which has happened at just about every single party I’ve ever been to where beer pong was being played. Minus the murder part. Usually it just ends with two bros arguing over whose rules are more “whack” followed by a fist-pound and make-up.â†µ
â†µâ‡¥According to court documents, Jimenez claimed that Riley had said, "Shoot me! Shoot me! You guys ain't got the b----!" â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Jimenez pulled a .40-caliber Taurus handgun from his waistband and shot Riley once in the neck, police said. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
