  • This is not a souvenir Lollapalooza beach ball, and thus may not be worth assaulting children for

I witnessed plenty of piss-poor behavior at Lollapalooza this past weekend, but I know I missed the worst of it. Today the Chicago Tribune reported on one of many incidents I’m glad I didn’t see:

“Michelle Fiore was enjoying an evening out with her 11-year-old daughter after Lollapalooza when a man confronted them, demanded the girl’s souvenir beach ball and punched the child as he tried to grab it, police and the woman say.”

The man in question is 19-year-old Conrad Slimak, who is being charged with misdemeanor battery and assault (and was also cited for being intoxicated while underage). The Trib‘s piece offers plenty of detail about the attack Slimak allegedly committed, but it fails to mention something else Slimak is alleged to be: a shitty EDM producer.
