Taunting Panther's Fans Force Marine Amputee Out Of Moosehead Bar and Grill

On Sunday a U.S. Marine who lost both legs in Afghanistan was forced to leave Charlotte's  Moosehead Bar and Grill along with his wife, parents and friends after another patron at the restaurant became verbally combative and the restaurant staff asked the Marine to leave.

According to the Charlotte Observer: "The incident happened after Garrett Carnes, his wife Courtney, their parents, and friends Brett and Nicole Coburn stopped at the restaurant for dinner after attending the Carolina Panthers’ game against Dallas. Several members of the party, including Garrett Carnes, were wearing Dallas Cowboys jerseys.

Coburn said that when the group reached the front door, the fan, who other patrons called Tank, was waiting for them."


Josh "Tank" Watts and friend at a Panthers game.
“He was standing at the door, and he started harassing us because of the Cowboys jerseys,” Coburn said.

He said Tank told Garrett Carnes, “Don’t use your wheelchair as a crutch.”

According to multiple accounts of the incident, Carnes told the patron – and others who were ridiculing the group for being Cowboys’ fans – that he was a veteran and had lost his legs in Afghanistan.

Members of the Carnes-Coburn party tried to “defend ourselves verbally,” Brett Coburn said.
He said Tank walked toward Carnes in a threatening way, and some other patrons stepped in to break it up.

Neilsen said his employees are trained to separate possible combatants, in an effort to defuse such situations. On Sunday, staff members asked Garrett Carnes and his party to leave, while they took Tank to another area of the restaurant."

More about Garrett Carnes here and Deadspin picks up the story and takes in national here.  The Daily Mail in the UK piled on this morning here.

Meanwhile the Moosehead Bar and Grill is getting slammed with neg comments on Yelp which is here. Moosehead's Yelp rating has "Tanked" to two stars out of five as Marines from across the nation hammer away at the four star rating the bar had this morning.

Cedar Posts suggests that Josh errr "Tank" may want to leave the state, or at least lay low for a few months. But as the following photos attest he just ain't that smart.




 
Hey Marine Corps you guys suck!

Cedar if this guy ends up dead somewhere you'll have blood on your hands.

I hear he works for the Bobcats as a part time security guy.

Opps did I just say that?

I think he better leave town ASAP.

If he does work for the Bobcats maybe MJ will have a Josh Tank Watts night, call him out to center court and let the fans show him just how much they respect him.

The Observer broke the story late last night has just removed Tank from their story and shut down the comments.

They now say only a "fan"

The fact that the guy is a vet and an amputee shouldn't really have any bearing on the story. Tank harassed them because of the Cowboys jerseys. I'm not sure what they said back to him, but I guess he didn't like it and decided to approach them to "keep it real." It sounds like Tank was being a bully and should've been the one to get the boot. Why it didn't pan out that way, who knows?

Further proof that Charlotte is a city full of pussies!

Had this happened anywhere else, Fayetteville, Beaufort, Columbia, Jacksonville Tank would have been beat to a pulp.

Then the cops would have shown up and arrested him, thanked the Marine for his sacrifice, and told his buds not to beat up anyone else for a while.

@ Anonymous 2:08 PM-

That's a different Josh Watts. Did some simple research on Facebook and that JW owns a condo w/ someone else. I'd assume that our Tank is a renter, not homeowner.

But that's beside the point. I feel sorry for Tank. He's got nothing, and now the world wants him dead. He looks like a meat head w/ no future.

Corp Garrett Carnes, on the other hand, has everything going for him. Yes, he lost his legs, but he has his dignity and respect of the community.

As for Moosehead- I frequent there for takeout a few times a month. Good people. I'm really surprised it was handled so bad. I gotta think there's more to the story. I wonder how they feel about ol Tank pulling them into this crapstorm.

Jeff A. Taylor said...

I'd shade SLIGHTLY to letting this go -- except for the owner's sob story.

Been in many, many bars over the years and if an owner ever sets foot in one they own during business hours (and some do not) he or she knows EXACTLY what kinda vibe and customers it is rolling.

No way this guy didn't know it was hostile and on edge.

Wish there were enough Marines in CLT to roll into that joint in shifts, pack the bar, order water, drink it in silence, roll out. Repeat. For a month or two.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you Jeff I don't buy the owners sob story at all. 3 days after the fact nope just a little too easy.

As for your idea of water drinking Marines, filling up the place yep yep that would be perfect.

As for Tank if he was a smart guy he would have sucked it up and appoligized for his drunk ass self. Since he isn't very smart he tried to roll it back on the Marine and his family.

FYI Chris the owner served in the military himself. I go there and personally think he is a stand up guy. GOOOOOOOOOOD bye tank.

Anonymous said...

Here's the problem, the majority of people here in Charlotte are a bunch of pussies. Being from Buffalo, we taunt the shit out of other fans, usually in good sport but with alcohol, things usually always go over board. With that being said, if someone crosses the line, they got their ass beat, immediately and not shit talked on a blog where no one is going to do anything they say. No one called the cops, but everyone stuck together for what was right. So you either stand up flet or whats right, apologize if you are wrong, or someone took an ass whooping.

And yes, I know, the Bills suck so im one step ahead of ya.

Anonymous said...

This is too stupid, first off "Tank" is a tackless oaf who is one brain cell short of a pair. But it take two to create this sort of "face off" between the parties. Just because the other was a disabled vet doesn't make him in the right either, he admitted playing the smart ass game with "Tank"; and "Tank" being tanked and not too bright took it a step too far with the threat of physical violence. The only thing I can think of as to why the owner kicked out the vet is that others may have indicated that the vet may have started it (possible lying about it to defend their friend). If you go to a game in another team's city and you wear the opposing teams jersey you can expect to get a hard time, but it should not be serious but in jest (good sportsmanship and being a good winner/loser).

Anonymous said...

Guy from buffalo. Everyone I've ever met from there is a dumbass, and you sir, are no exception. The vets family called the cops. Tank was banned forever and the owner apologized on the spot and asked the family to stay. He then apologized on Facebook the very next morning. You don't know what you're talking about, and I'm not suprised. instead of talking shit you don't know, why don't you get some hot a spicy Buffalo wings, and cram one up your ass. Thanks!

Tank told the Marine he was going to rip his jaw off. He also called the wife every name in the book as he was threatening to beat the s**t out of his wife. BTW the Marine, his wife and their friends were not drunk being the fact that they were attacked and kicked out before they even got to a table.

“Moosehead is a Panthers’ bar,” he said. “When they came, wearing the Cowboys’ jerseys, I started up on them. I asked them if they were Cowboys fans who lived in North Carolina.”

“I’m not going to fight someone in a wheelchair,” the fan said. “I said to him, ‘I’m not fighting you. Get four of your boys, and I’ll fight them.’ “

So this guy wants to try his luck fighting FOUR MARINES?

PERIOD ... we yelled as everyone yelled . i was just going to ask what the cowboys do for our community and kids . thats all his wife started hard . this was simple bar banterring . my grandfather was a LT.C. in the Air force at the time U.S. Air Corp . have a cousin in the gaurd and another cousin that is a Vet . uncle that did 14 tours in Nam . i didnt see a man in a wheel chair just a cowboys shirt . thats all this is way blown out of proportion . i love the military !!!! . i have no prob with him . it prob would have ended up over beers . his wife blew up in turn i did as well . i apologize to Garrett . the whole thing was stupid . was just fan banterring . char ob told me that Garrett didnt comment . Garrett sorry it got to where it was and is . this is horrible . was never about the military or was it about a vet just a cowboy fan .

Cedar hear's something for you, this was posted on Yelp by Michelle C. q little while ago, "the only good rview after 100 that gave thoblI believe the t Moosehead lace only one star.

"Moosehead bar and grill is one of the best places to grab lunch in the South Charlotte area! The wings are the best around. The Bee Stings and Buffalo have amazing flavor.

Every day there are different specials at lunch that are displayed on a white board. The seafood always is super fresh! The oyster and shrimp po'boys are done exactly how you would get them in New Orleans! Some of the specials that come back often that I love are the Lamb Gyro and Shrimp & Cheddar Grits! So yummy!

The interior of the restaurant may not be as styling as some of the other favorite local lunch spots in Charlotte but I think it just adds charm!

Definitely would not bring my young children here because it is a BAR not a family restaurant. If you want to celebrate a team win with your family, go to Applebees, not a small local BAR filled with the home team fans."

I would bet my Sec.

Obviously Tank felt the need to defend his sorry ass. He is lying through his damn teeth. I was the fried there with Courtney and Garrett, my husband and I. He was starting in on Courtney from the parking lot as she was getting Garrett's wheel chair out, and then was waiting for us as we walked into the door. He started talking trash before we could even get all the way in the door. He called Courtney every obscenity you could imagine, then when she finally fired back and called him a fat ass she couldn't handle it and threatened to rip her husbands jaw off. Now he can't even man up to it. I normally don't wish harm on people, but I truly hope this catches up with him.

This e-mail below went out to virtually every Marine in the Charlotte area as well as all of Mecklenburg County, NC, if not all of NC.

To "Tank" or any of his buddies, remember this Marine Corps motto: "No better friend, no worse enemy"

You messed with one of ours. And we are not a Band of Brothers for no reason, tough guy. I suggest you crawl a mile over cut class to Cpl Carnes and beg for forgiveness. Then ask to work weekends at the VA in Charlotte.

But if you wish to remain a big mouth, Tank, and think you're too tough to have to do so, there's always someone tougher than you. And when you meet him he's going to hand you your ass if you even look at him the wrong way. Yes, I am banking on the fact that someone wants to meet you real bad.

Subject: Fwd: Cpl Garrett John Carnes 3/3
Importance: High

Marines

Just learned today that Cpl Carnes of 3/3 was severely wounded in Afghanistan. All we know at this time, is he has lost both legs and has other serious wounds and will be sent to hospital in Germany.

I know this is very little information and will have more over the next couple of days. However he is married and from Mooresville, N.C This information comes directly from 3/3 as he is one of the Marines that we support. This is 3/3 second tour.

This is truly a tragedy for the entire Carnes family. I believe this is a case where we need to unite in a joint effort to help this Marine Family.

I'd watch who you open your mouth too. Or you can make this a life-changing opportunity. But it would need to be sincere and lasting. We know bullshit when we hear it.

Now, back-up 2 feet and screw yourself. Because I suspect you have really fucked yourself for a very long time.

Let this be a lesson for all wanna be tough guys. Think twice about why & who you are confronting. I am proud of you Cpl.Garrett Carnes just like the majority of this nation. Maybe some good will come of this incident.
Tank, you are and will forever be a loser. The USA is not going to put up with people like you anymore. Good luck being a tough guy. Hahaha, justice is being served.

Tank or I should say Tubby. I have a feeling your Going to be living in fear for a long time. My suggestion is go on a diet, move, and change your name. Karma is a mother f#$/&er. The karma train is going to come around really quick for you. I hope you got some decent medical insurance because I have a feeling some Marines are going to pay you a special visit.

I'm a football and I know that people can be jerks I think the best thing is for The Tank to quickly reach out the Marine and say sorry make sure some camera's are there. He may have a different side to story but He should go on camera for the world to see Him saying sorry and working something out, dont let pride get in the way. (I just hope that this works out without someone getting Hurt. I have a brother who has been in the service from 98 and if some knocklehead did this to him I would lose my cool but in the end seek a peaceful resolution) The owner is going to need to change the name of his bussiness or sell it, unless He likes the negitive comments though he may need to buy. www.reputationchanger.com might be in order.

Second thought the Tank should go by his middle name for a while to be safe.

Yeah, I say "tank" their restaurant rating - they obviously don't have enough sense to clear ALL the trouble out, so why bother eating there if you are traveling through? You might wearing the wrong color or something...

Here is what matters: This "Tank" made the first comment, and he made it to a family, with a young man in a wheel chair. This alone speaks volumes of the man's pathetic character and complete lack of moral fiber. And what was the reason for the comment? Fucking football, a goddamn game... Garrett is recovering from terrible wounds fighting in a place where what team wins a damn game is the very last of his concerns, and is he tries to reintegrate to society, with incredible challenges ahead of him, this is what he is greeted with. This is truly disgusting, how has our country come to this? Are we that pathetic that we make comments to who ever we please over something as stupid as a game? To know there are Americans as narrow minded and short sighted as this makes me ashamed to call them my countrymen. The truth is, "Tank" is a perfect microcosm for what is wrong with our country. We are so selfish and arrogant, with no moral maturity or sense of decency that we will make off color comments to a man in a wheel chair over something as trivial as a football game. The fact that no one stood up for Garrett is further proof of this. Tank "loves the military" so much that he jumped at the chance to join up... except he didn't. No, there were much more important things to do, like watch football. But he will mock a wounded Marine who damn near gave his life for that same right. Pathetic.

As a Vet and someone who takes pride in America and all it stands for, I find it appalling that something like this could ever happen. That your business and work staff can benefit from the cloak of freedom our flag offers, and then treat one of the brave men helping to provide that freedom in such a way is utterly reprehensible.

As a business you have FAILED!
As an AMERICAN you have FAILED!

That you could not show even the slightest bit of judgment to do the right thing in a situation as obvious as this, shows a lack of respect and understanding in what it means to serve, protect, and defend. Garrett Carnes lost both legs protecting your rights so that you can serve shitty food and warm beer. I can only hope the next loss is this business, as I will NEVER set foot in this place, and I will make sure that everyone I know is aware of your actions and does the same!

If you run into Mr. Watts I can tell you that there are Marines who are actively looking to stand toe to toe with him. Fair fight and everything! He is very popular right now, even with a 62 year old guy who is a brick and worked a .50 caliber on a Medivac helicopter for three tours in Vietnam, as well as a 5'8" 160 pound guy who did three tours in Vietnam who won a Bronze Star. These are guys who fear no man. And for what he has done to a young man they have met and supported all they want is a fair fight to show Mr. Watts that they have looked into his eyes and already know how the fight will end.

He didn't, to quote Jack Nicholson, "Screw with the wrong Marine", he screwed with EVERY Marine.

So step-up to the plate Mr. Watts. No Marine wants to sly-rap you as they are honorable men. They want to touch their nose to yours and hear the word "GO", tough guy.

His address is on twitter but I will in no way post the hashtag to find so. You must find it yourself. Second, section 501, seat 1 row 5 is correct for his every outing to the Panthers games.

Thanks Cedar for your work helping to publicize this. I am a former Marine and have a son in the Navy. I take every opportunity to thank a vet, buy them coffee or pick up a tab when I can. I weep for the young Marine and cannot imagine how anyone could try to pick a fight with this young man's family. We all take our sports seriously but this is too much.
Lets not be too hard on Tank, he does have to watch the Pityful Panthers each week. (Bad joke)
I trust that everyone that sees this joke of a human being never let's him forget what he did, how disgusting his actions were.
Finally, for all the patrons in that bar where were you, if you didn't step up for that here you are not much better than Tank.

It seems to me that the best way to deal with this is to try to heal what happened to this young Marine. I would love to see the Moosehead Bar and Grill have a fundraiser to get enough money to send this Marine and his wife to Dallas for a Game. Flight, Hotel, Food Tickets, the works. I can't get through to the bar, so if anyone knows how to talk to the owner, suggest this. The worst we could do for this "Fan" is to leave him alone to continue to be himself. I learned a long time ago "no matter how hard you hit them, it will not change their mind".

Semper Fidelis said...

I just spoke to another Marine who did a walk to raise funds for Garrett and this is all over Charlotte and spreading all over NC and further.

IMO, this guy has ruined his life. He would do well to change his name and move because I don't think an apology to Garrett is going to be enough to have a life of any meaning in Charlotte. He grabbed the pooch and screwed it himself. And by the looks of the scumbag, that's all he ever screwed. He might as well have "Child Molester" on the front and back of his shirt as he is going to be remembered forever for this in Charlotte.

Friends... please read, follow their lead on this, and keep them in your prayers as Garrett goes through yet another surgery.
We appreciate all the post and messages supporting me and Garrett through this ridiculous ordeal. We have decided as a family that for now we are not going to make any statements to any newspapers or news stations about the incident that happened this past Sunday. The fact of the matter is that there are bullies in all walks of life and we just so happened to stumble upon a group of them at Mooseheads. Garrett and I would just like to say that we have no ill wishes or feelings towards Mooseheads, nor do we want their business to suffer. The owner, Chris, is not at fault and is doing everything he can to make amends with us. The issue was with a rowdy and vile Panther fan, not with Moosehead Bar and Grill; and Chris personally invited us back in to eat dinner after the altercation was over. Thanks again to everyone who supports us through good times and bad. Please remember Garrett in your prayers next week during his surgery.

But you and your family certainly didn't deserve with that douchebag did to you and he's sure lucky that none of us were there with you or someone would've CERTAINLY been carted off to jail! Being a fan of a different team doesn't give a low-class redneck trying to relive his "glory days" in high school a step-up from someone who's heads and tails above his sorry ass. And that includes the other douchebag Panther fans that egged it on as well. Wish we knew who THEY were too! Tank shouldn't be the ONLY one included in this. I hope those scum sucking idiots get what's coming to them too. If anyone knows who THEY are, let's add em to the list.

Anyways, I'm a disabled Marine Vet myself and waiting on surgery as well. God speed to you sir and we DO take care of our own. Every last one of us, including our sister services have your back brother. This fatass, moobs, no bra wearing, ugly, probably has a deer mounted on his wall coward, will get what's coming to him, one way or another. You've done your fighting, now let us do the rest for you.

It's not hard to see that "Tank" is most likely an idiot and a douche bag, and picking a fight with a woman or a guy in a wheelchair is low. But the fact that he is a vet shouldn't really even have anything to do with it. In fact, it's kind of sad that there probably wouldn't be any real outcry about this situation if he wasn't a vet and had just lost his legs in a work site accident or something.

If he'd been threatening a disabled man and someone beat his ass, fine. He got what he had coming, and the person who beat his ass is a champion in my book. But that shouldn't have ANYTHING to do with whether or not he's a vet, nor should it be done days later after the situation has been defused. And honestly, none of you even know for sure if he was genuinely threatening the man or his wife. This story is pretty one sided. For all you know, it's been blown way out of proportion and he wasn't even threatening actual violence to begin with.

At any rate, you guys screaming for "Tank's" head and wanting to kill him and hunt him down after the fact when no one even got hurt make me fucking sick. You're just as bad as him. A bunch of group-think wannabe tough-guys... And on the internet, no less! You're really just showing your intelligence to be as lacking as "Tank's."

Hell, at least at least "Tank" did go around claiming to be defending freedom while threatening to kill anyone who disagreed with or disrespected him. Is the irony of wanting to murder someone for disrespecting a guy who ostensibly fought for freedom really lost on you clowns?

You need to remove this Tank guys information from your story and from the message board. If you are not capable or willing to do so then you are accessory to any violence that occures to this guy.

You should also post a follow up about the restaurant. Include the email from the victims wife.

According to most peoples post on this site the only way to deal with a verbal confrontation is to put someone "in their place?"

My point is that threats and violence is not the answer and this site is doing nothing but promoting it and making a profit while pretending to be reporting on the abuse and intimidation of a amputee vet. Count the number of stories about Tank then compare that to the number of stories about the victim. Is Cedar promoting his future story about Garret? No, but you find this on Cedar:
Cedar Posts Bonus: Coming up the complete Josh "Tank" Watts photo expose' you won't believe what we've uncovered, and later the poll. Drunks vs Marines.

This is not a news site. This is someone’s opinion that is driven by site traffic and profit. Apparently Cedar panders to people with the same mentality as Tank that get worked up and worry about consequences later.

The letter the Marines wife wrote just proves what kind of sweet people this couple is.

What has not been reported is that not only was "Tank" thrown out of the bar he has all been told to never come back. Also this was the act of one person. Not patron"s" as is being reported. Just go to the bar or call. The owner was in the Navy and is as upset about this as anyone. Don't take your anger out on a small business because of the acts of one stupid customer. That would be like punishing Garrett for the acts of the Marines in Okinawa.

Your anger comes from the lack of information. Reach out to this local small business and your opinion on how this was handled that day and going forward may be changed.
