We know Beyoncé has a strong fan base here in Atlanta, but don’t let the fuzz catch you singing “Formation” too loudly in the mall.
Earlier this month, just a few days after the singer sold-out the Georgia Dome for the third date of her “Formation World Tour,” the Atlanta Police Department briefly detained an Atlanta man who was strolling through Lenox Square singing Bey’s Black Lives Matter anthem at the top of his lungs.
The man — who told police he was a psychiatric patient and had not taken his medication — was causing a disturbance by singing that Red Lobster line, over and over. Here’s the video that surfaced online:
APD said in a statement that the man was offered medical attention which he accepted.
He was not arrested and no charges were filed but he did receive a criminal trespass warning from Lenox Square and could not return to the mall.
And let that be a warning to us all.
Feel free to belt out those Beyoncé lyrics, but please save it for when she returns to the Georgia Dome this fall.
