Gus Johnson uses his Petruzelli voice and nearly gets arrested

The Memphis police got it right. We've begged for Showtime/CBS announcer Gus Johnson to stop screaming each year during the NCAA tournament and not blow out our speakers when Seth Petruzelli scores the biggest victory in the history of mixed martial arts history. Well, now it's in the hands of the fuzz. From the overblown story department comes this one from The Big Lead:

According to a police report obtained through the Memphis police public information officer, an employee of the restaurant flagged down cops who were nearby and told them a customer was being belligerent and had refused to leave. Sources say Johnson had become increasingly surly during his dining experience, and complained vociferously about the service and his food. Johnson ended up handcuffed and in the backseat of a police car after 1 a.m. early Saturday morning.

The first time an insane Gus should've been arrested:

Johnson had bad food and presumably yelled at someone, for that, he was put in cuffs? There has to be more to the story.

Maybe the restaurant manager told the Memphis police that there was a chance Johnson would be announcing several Tiger games during the NCAA tournament. Any more blood curdling screams from Gus and I'm ready to dump the whole tournament.

Rocky! Rocky! (0:20 mark):

How about some Kimbo butt-smooching?:

We kid cause we care Gus! Can't wait for the first Strikeforce on Showtime Apr. 11.
