In a truly heinous act that has me wishing the writers of 2016 would hurry up and get to the season finale already, a 19-year-old man, Demetrious Kelly, was arrested in Brooklyn earlier this month for beating another man on the street with a selfie stick.

After engaging in an argument with his 27-year-old victim, Kelly “hit the victim on the arms and back, causing cuts to his hands and back, bruising on his back and substantial pain,” DNAInfo reports. Kelly was arrested for harassment, assault, menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon. Again, all this over a selfie stick. A selfie stick!

As the cause for the argument between the two men is currently unknown, we can only speculate what caused Kelly to snap and wield his stick as a weapon: global warming, Donald Trump, the fact that bees are dying globally at an alarming rate? The world may never know.
