And Josh Beckett acts like a d*ck to media when they ask about how he spends his 18 off days per MLB season. How about what happened to Marlins catcher Brett Hayes yesterday on the Florida Turnpike. As you can see from the tweet, Hayes watched a dude with a gun walk by his car and that guy eventually shot two officers before shooting himself. Suck it, Becket.

According to the Miami Herald:

The FBI has identified the gunman who shot two law enforcement officers before turning the gun on himself in the middle of evening rush hour traffic on Thursday as David Edwin Bradley, 23, of Miami Gardens.

Bradley left a trail of armed violence from Miami-Dade to Broward counties on Thursday, when he committed at least two carjackings, one armed robbery and shot two law enforcement officers on Florida’s Turnpike — then turned the gun on himself in a spectacular suicide that caused a monumental traffic jam from the evening rush hour on Thursday until early Friday.

Hayes was sorta live tweeting the proceedings and eventually figured out what that dude and the gun had been up to. At least the guy killed himself and saved the taxpayers a lunch bill.
