kenneth eng arrested for harrassment

Holy crap. I knew it was only a matter of time before Kenneth Eng got arrested (or got his ass beat) for one reason or another... I just didn't know it would be for threatening to kill a mother, daughter, and their dog: 'Hate' columnist Eng arrested in N.Y. for alleged harassment. The details:
'Hate' columnist Eng arrested in N.Y. for alleged harassment

(05-23) 12:44 PDT NEW YORK CITY -- Kenneth Eng, the author of a controversial AsianWeek column that described reasons to "hate" black people, is being held in a New York jail without bail on assault and harassment charges.

Eng, 23, was arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill his Queens neighbors and one of their pets. He was arraigned May 11 on charges of attempted assault, menacing, possession of a weapon and harassment.

Eng allegedly approached the mother and daughter as they stood in their driveway with their pet and said, "If your dog bites me, I will kill you and your family." He then called the mother fat and lazy and swung a hammer at her and the dog, according to the Queens district attorney's office.

Eng used to be a regular contributor to San Francisco-based AsianWeek, writing from New York. He was fired in February after public outcry over his racist and discriminating columns. In his writings, Eng called himself an "Asian supremacist" and listed reasons to hate black people as well as Asians and whites.

Eng's attorney has asked that he undergo a mental examination. He is scheduled to return to court in Queens on June 13.
A hammer, dude? Seriously? You've got to be kidding me. Is anyone one there surprised about this? Get this guy off the streets. Have fun in prison, you crazy idiot dragon freak.

UPDATE: Gawker has posted Kenneth's totally awesome resume and book proposal. Impressive. Now he can add "Threatened a dog with a hammer" under Notable Attributes.
