A dense Ohio man live-streamed a massive party while defiantly declaring “We don’t give a f–k about this coronavirus” — only to be arrested over the weekend for flouting social-distancing rules, police said.
“This is how we do it in my city, man,” Rashaan Davis, 25, brags in the 11-minute video, shot Friday night in Cincinnati and later posted to YouTube. “We don’t give a f–k about this coronavirus. This is how we celebrate our coronavirus.”
He was busted Saturday afternoon and charged with a misdemeanor for violating Gov. Mike DeWine’s “Stay at Home” order amid the pandemic, according to a police report authorities posted to Facebook.
“[Davis] narrates a video of himself and others openly defying the orders, causing even greater risk of contamination during this national health crisis,” a criminal complaint says. “At the time of his arrest, there were over 55 thousand views of his post.”
Cincinnati police recommended a high bond — or none at all — until Davis can appear before a judge because of his “complete disregard for public safety.”
YouTube commenters blasted Davis and the other revelers.
“Are we gonna get a follow up in 10-14 days when those symptoms hit or nah?” one wrote.
“The rest of Ohio spoke, and we agreed we don’t claim these people,” another posted. “This is ignorant.”
