A Dallas Man and His Ferrari Were Smashed by a Baseball Bat at Uptown Smashburger

With the knockout game having officially arrived in Dallas, and with the two documented cases here occurring in restaurant parking lots in northern Dallas, it would be only natural to assume that the man beaten with a baseball bat outside Smashburger on McKinney Avenue is a victim.

Yet that doesn't seem to be the case. For one, police have the name of the suspected attacker (they won't release it because he wasn't caught). Also, judging by Dallas police officers' narrative of events, it just wasn't very random.

According to a police report, Randy Enger, 52, arrived in the Smashburger parking lot at 8 p.m. He parked near the front door and started to get out when "suddenly, out of nowhere," the attacker ran up to his 1999 Ferrari yelling, "I'm going to fucking kill you!"

Instead of surprising Enger with a shattering blow, as would be expected in a knockout game-style attack, however, the man ran to his car (apparently parked elsewhere in the lot) and returned with a wooden baseball bat. This he proceeded to swing.

The first blow, according to police, shattered the Ferrari's front passenger window. The second, delivered as Enger attempted to start his car, landed on his face.

Here, Enger succeeded in getting his car running and drove away. He flagged down a Dallas cop and related the details of the attack. His nose bled throughout the 30-minute interview, the officer noted, and was possibly broken.

The police report doesn't mention a possible motive. We've left a message for Enger at his office.

This " victim " is currently on probation for stalking his Ex wife in Rockwall! Karma is real!

This guy has been given every opportunity in life and has crapped on everyone his way. Violence is not a good thing but it was bound to happen. He's lucky to have his life but he will find a way spin this to his advantage, try to suck money out of it, and go onto HIS next victim!!

Randy Enger has a BLACK HEART!!!

After he talked to police Enger spent the rest of the day trying in vain to find a place called Blowjob Burger.

"The police report doesn't mention a possible motive. We've left a message for Enger at his office."

Does this mean that Enger is hiding something?

Unfair Park -- where victims of crimes are "douchbags," "pussy,' "a punk ass old man."

Regardless of the reason, once they catch this guy it appears he's headed for some bat action himself in the Pen.

All I can say is that there needs to be a fake Marine posting a comment about Wimpy Liberals wanting to outlaw bats.

If this story doesn't call for a Big Lebowski quote then I don't know what news story would.

If someone yells they are going to kill me and then heads off to their car trunk then I am not going to hang around out of curiosity to see what the next item is on their agenda.

I can't believe that the Dallas Observer is buying into the "knockout game" hysteria.

Well, it is called SMASHburger.  Why must we name our restaurants with such violent names?  I'm just very glad it's not named "BULLETSPRAYburger" or "NUKEburger" or "CELINEDIONONVOLUMELEVEL10burger".  


Those big corporate restaurant namers need to get it together.

Motive?

Come on, this is Dallas.

The guy was driving a 15  year old Ferrari.

Either get with the program and drive a new 458 Spider or expect this sort of treatment by our discerning populace.

Wait till the rich take away just enough welfare from the poor and watch the previously pacified poor bastards finally rise up against the rich.

@bmarvel apparently a lot of people know the guy and he seems to fit the adjectives. Is it cruel if it is the truth?

The way liberals, led by Obama, demonize successful people, it's a small wonder we don't see more of this.

Rumor has it that Randy, in fact, is bankrupt. He probably "borrowed" that car. He has been to known to do that in the past

Watch out?Maybe - But I gotta' say I've never seen quite such a vitriolic response to a creature profiled on this blog save for the times that DO reports on the antics of, say, Dick Cheney or the odd, random animal abuser. 


I'd be more than a little nervous about my personal safety if I were him and probably be hiring bodyguards instead of lawyers.

@Inspectorgadget@ScottsMerkin@bmarvel For the rest of us who don't know him it seems cruel and capricious. Unless supported by some kind of evidence, this is base rumor-mongering. I assume he has lawyers. If he's what everybody says, I'd watch out.
