'Piece of Burger' Viral Star Gives Best Interview Ever, Then Gets Arrested

Pin It
All he wanted was a piece of a burger.

Former So You Think You Can Dance contestant Courtney Barnes was minding his own business, heading to Burger King and giving full-out leprechaun fabulousness when a crazy accident occurred right before his eyes.

What else could he do but give an eyewitness account of what went down in a way only he knew how. "What I seen was a horrible tragic situation...girl he hit the pole, his head went to one side and his body went to the other side and this is the results," the 24-year-old said passionately, flipping his neon green ponytail under a green baseball cap.

Had Courtney just stayed home and made a sandwich his day would've been totally different. "I was on my way to buy me a piece of a burger from Burger King and I just stopped right in the middle, because my hunger just went away," he continued. "It was a full twistabout and the police car just twist around like a tornado, girl! And the Lord just shook it up, and the man just got injured."After this clip aired on WLBT 3 On Your Side, it quickly went Viral, with even Burger King chiming in with their take on the situation.
The only problem with this whole thing was Courtney's Instafame also caught the attention of police. Thursday afternoon, the dancer was taken into custody by the Ridgeland Police Department in Mississippi to answer a contempt of court charge for more than $1,600 worth of fines, according to Fox 10.

He also reportedly had two outstanding misdemeanor theft warrants for allegedly stealing merchandise from Walmart and another store. In spite of all that, we don't have to tell you that Courtney was slaying for the gods when he was caught on camera getting taken into custody. His green locks were out of that hat and flowing when he turned himself in.

Still, he had more to say...along with some poignant questions about his arrest we would like someone to step up and answer. Like, "did Eve steal the apple off the tree...were you there?"
