Argument over Bruno Mars leads to assault arrest

A Greenwood man was arrested for battery and criminal recklessness after an argument over whether a song was by Bruno Mars or not led to him hitting a friend in the face with a pistol and the weapon discharging. A classic mix-up! According to the Indianapolis Star, Roger D. Washburn, 71, is facing a charge of battery after the Friday night mishap. Washburn adamantly maintained that the track didn't belong to the Hawaiian pop star. That prompted the victim to show Washburn proof that the song was, in fact, part of Mars' catalog, but instead of diffusing the argument, the sound squabble went to another level when Washburn pulled out a.38-caliber revolver on the man, deputies said.

The man, who reportedly told police the trio have been friends for five decades, said Washburn disputed the other man's claim that a song being played was performed by Bruno Mars.

The victim then called Washburn a "chickens-t", leading him to swing his gun at the man, striking him in the face and arm.

The man told the Johnson County Sheriff's Office that they were listening to a song when an argument started over the artist's identity. Unfortunately, the police report does not mention whether the song in question was "Uptown Funk" or "That's What I Like".
