ONE EXPENSIVE JOKE!!!!!
A 60-year-old man learned the true meaning of "too soon" when he made an Ebola joke that cleared an Ohio casino, and got him slapped with a felony charge to boot.
According to the arrest report posted by The Smoking Gun, Emanuel Smith was gambling at the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland when he allegedly told a dealer that he was playing to avoid his ex-wife, who was back from West Africa and suffering from Ebola. According to court documents, Smith's off-color joke "caused panic" that led to the casino shutting down a portion of its gaming floor, resulting in, "a large financial loss."
Smith's joke was made the same day it was reported a nurse who contracted the disease at a Texas hospital was allowed to fly to Cleveland. She remains in medical isolation.
Smith was later arrested at his home in Cleveland and slapped with a felony charge of inducing panic, as well as criminal trespass. He remains behind bars in lieu of 10 thousand dollars bond.
Not surprisingly, the gambling house has banned him as well.
