Sticks and stones may break my bones. So do bricks. And, so do bottles. Jesse Nesbitt has been accused by San Francisco police of hurling the latter two at city employees; yesterday his alleged brick tossed off the roof of 888 Turk Street missed a police officer but did strike a bystander.

Nesbitt, 34, was arrested yesterday and booked for felony aggravated assault among other charges following the alleged brick-tossing escapade. If he is indeed the man who winged a heavy object at a city employee, it apparently isn't the first time. Back in November, a 34-year-old Jesse Nesbitt was arrested after allegedly flinging a bottle at a Department of Public Works employee steam-cleaning the occupied bocce ball courts, and informing the worker that "You are not coming in here." 

Police claim Nesbitt admitted to hurling the bottle at the DPW employee, stating that occupiers could do their own cleaning up. He was booked on assault charges and for an outstanding warrant for an undisclosed transgression.

Calls to the San Francisco Police Department regarding what, if any, repercussions befell Nesbitt following his last arrest -- and what is to come -- have not yet been returned.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
