LOUISVILLE, KY: Louisville Police arrested a man Monday morning after they said he attacked his mother over a glass of Kool-Aid. According to arrest records, 35-year-old Lequan Washington became angry when his mother told him to go get his own glass of Kool-Aid that she had already prepared.
See, bro!? Kool-Aid is serious fucking business in Afro-America. I bet it was the red kind.
