Um, Oops? Conservative Radio Host Accused Of Hit-And-Run After Visiting Gay Bar



Conservative radio host Michael Berry, who has made anti-gay statements in the past, has been accused of being involved in a hit-and-run after visiting a local gay bar in Houston.

A bouncer at the bar identified the former Councilman after he saw Berry’s hit car hit another car just moments after leaving TC’s Show Bar in Houston’s Montrose Distict.

Not only that, but the bouncer admitted that Berry was a frequent visitor to the popular cross-dressing “drag show.”

After he saw the two cars hit on impact, the bouncer, Tuderia Bennett, ran up to the car and got a good look at Berry sitting behind the wheel.

Managers of the bar have since turned over security camera footage over to the police, confirming that it was him on the video.

They also wrote an email that reads:

“Mr. Berry is one of those customers who has been to our establishment. The video in question that shows Mr. Berry in our establishment is in our possession. The local authorities have requested this same video and they are in possession to assist with their investigation.”

Meanwhile, Bennett has a theory as to why Berry ran from the scene of the crime and hasn’t turned himself in. (Yeah, we have a pretty good idea ourselves too.) Bennett says:

“If you’re going to stand up and say anti-gay things and be conservative and be Mr. Good Guy, and then when something happens that points you out and puts you in a place with the exact business that you aim to shut down, it kind of makes it seem like I need this to go away and I need it to go away quickly.”


Obviously, Berry is embarrassed and didn’t know how to handle the situation probable. Well, it’s out there now. You might as well turn yourself in!
