Jimmy Buffett Kills a Man with 'Margaritaville'
The patron saint of Key West killed a man last night.
Police in Steamboat Springs, Colorado say two men snapped and beat a 37-year-old Army sergeant to death after he played Jimmy Buffett's insufferable classic on the jukebox.
A Steamboat Springs police official told the Denver Post that Sgt. 1st Class Richard Lopez "was obviously enjoying the song, and that upset the two other patrons." A fistfight spilled out into the street, and Lopez was killed.
