Raw Video – Drunk Bully Knocked Out at SXSW 2013 Austin

March 15, 2013 at 5:21 PM ET – You know what they say about karma… Thursday night on 6th Street in Austin, Texas at the South by Southwest 2013 Festival, a bully that appeared to be more than a bit tipsy earned himself a swift bit of justice. In the video uploaded to Youtube, a young man in camouflage shorts can be seen slapping other eventgoers, and whistling while attempting to bait them into a fight.

One man in the video can be seen pleading with the bully, first holding his hands together in prayer before holding up the peace sign with each hand. Instead of calming down, the bully sucker punched the man asking for peace. Unable to stand by and watch any longer, one of the spectators dispensed the bully while yelling “BOOM.”

Viewer discretion warning: the following video contains violence that may offend some people. Viewer discretion is advised, by watching you verify that you are 18 years of age or older.
