Maryland man accused of using beer pong to lure victims
Years before Donald Glover starred on “Community” and Bobby Moynihan on “Saturday Night Live,” they appeared in a comedy short that creepily anticipated an actual criminal case.
The 2006 video by Glover’s comedy group, Derrick, has been viewed online more than 10 million times. It imagines a phenomenon known as “Bro Rape” in which preppie, hard-partying young men — bros — use beers, “Family Guy” and Jack Johnson to sexually assault other bros.
Now a Maryland man is accused of having a similarly bro-ish modus operandi.
Joey Poindexter, 38, is accused of sexually assaulting at least 10 college-age men in the last decade after preying on them at events like beer pong tournaments and extreme sports events. Police said at a news conference Tuesday that the assaults appear to have happened while the victims were drunk or unconscious.
The Baltimore Sun said Poindexter could not be reached for comment.
