While most people his age are slaving away at a job, Bean was hard at work trying to reach his goal of catching all the Pokemons and becoming the Grand Marshall Pokeman, or something. I never really learned how to play the game as a teenager because I had a girlfriend, and a job. This guy clearly has neither.
According the Kankakee County sheriff’s police, Bean picked up the boy and threw him on the ground after he wouldn’t trade Pokemon cards with “another boy.” He also claims his “twin brother” actually attacked the boy before eventually admitting… you guessed it… he was the one beat the kid up. Bean was the only one taken into custody by the cops. Not only is he a sore loser but I’m willing to guess he’s also a terrible liar too.
In his defense, Bean said the boy charged him first and that he was just protecting himself, which he did by body slamming the kid. I’m sure in retrospect even he would agree that body slamming an 11-year-old over a kid’s make believe card game may have been a bit excessive. His career as a Pokemon player may be over but it sounds like he’d make a great little league baseball coach.
