(Source) The man who filed a police report claiming Terrell Owens hurled a cup of hot coffee at him went on a racist tear during the altercation, screaming the n-word and calling him a “f***ing knuckle-running, spear-chucking, monkey-ass looking motherf*****.” TMZ Sports obtained video of a portion of the altercation between T.O. and the alleged victim, a guy named Arman.
Terrell tells us Arman got aggressive with him inside a Brentwood, CA Starbucks, threw a cup of liquid at him outside the shop and repeatedly used the n-word. We now know, on the subject of racial slurs, T.O. was telling the truth. T.O. says after Arman threw a cup at him, the former football star returned the favor with his own cup of coffee.
We spoke with Arman, who first denied using the n-word. But when we told him we had the video he said he never put an “r” at the end … “I use that word and it’s very much accepted in the black community.” When we told Arman that we hear him say, “f***ing knuckle-running, spear-chucking, monkey-ass looking motherf*****,” he said, he was “purposefully racist,” adding, “I just wanted to make him mad and sad. I’m Middle Eastern and Muslim and not KKK.” Arman, who denied throwing a cup at T.O., said, “There’s freedom of speech but there’s not freedom of attack. He kicked me in the Starbucks.”
First of all, kind of happy to see TO is still out there just living and being TO. I know this will sound pathetic but I always felt bad for TO. He and Chad Johnson were the epitome of the phrase “life comes at you fast”. One second they were the cock of the walk, the belle of the ball, and the next they were holding workouts in their backyard begging teams to sign them. I can’t imagine retiring from professional sports is ever an easy transition but TO and Ochocinco seemed to have an especially rough landing.
As for the video in question, it’s actually far less about TO and far more about this Arman guy. Talk about spinzone city. This guy makes my spinzone look like pre-school.
-Hey man, TO said you called him the N word.
-No I didn’t.
-Well we have video.
-Oh yeah maybe I did but I didn’t do a hard R so it’s like how people talk.
-Ok but you also said he’s a spear chucking, monkey ass motherfucker.
-Oh, well what about the KKK? Those guys are really bad, I’m not them.
If you can’t have a silent respect for that type of delusion and revisionist history then I don’t want to know you. I truly believe Arman didn’t think he did anything wrong. He just though he was having a disagreement, maybe said a couple of things to piss TO off and went on his way. Play back the tape and he’s sitting there like Costanza after fucking the cleaning lady. Was that bad? Should I have not done that? Should I have not said he was a spear chucking monkey? Good to know, will take that into consideration going forward.
“This is why black people don’t drink coffee” -Shaq, probably.
