Police: Daytona Beach Man Attacks Partially Blind Person In Minion Costume


Looks like Gru might have some competition for most "despicable."

The Steve Carell-voiced supervillain was known for hanging around the Minions in Universal's "Despicable Me" film franchise, but he wasn't hitting them.


Police say the same can't be said for a Florida man accused of attacking a partially-blind man in a Minion costume on the Daytona Beach Boardwalk Sunday night.

Officers say Ryan Nihart, 25, got rough with the victim who was standing in costume promoting a nearby shop.

When the victim said to stop being so rough, Nihart picked him up and slammed him to the ground, police told CBS affiliate WKMG.

The Minion suit was destroyed, a store owner said.

Nihart faces charges of battery and criminal mischief.
