Bruce attacked a Greek Orthodox Priest (Father Alexios Marakis) with a tire iron because he thought he was an "Arab terrorist."

On another note, where is the national media on this story? imagine if it was an Arab who attacked a US Marine with a tire iron.

Update: The St. Petersburg Times is reporting today that the Jasen Bruce also lied to the police about deployment to Iraq this coming January:
"One item she [Tampa Police Spokeswoman] said she could talk about: Bruce told police he was scheduled for deployment to Iraq in January. "That," McElroy said, "turned out not to be true."
