Hani Barghout, a sensitive and intelligent citizen of Denver, Colorado USA, went out for a night on the town looking for love at Charlie’s nightclub which caters to homosexual patrons. It only took him a single game of pool to pick up a guy and head to his place in Hani’s brand new car.
Hani illegally parked his vehicle in a space that was unoccupied because resident did not own a car. A tow truck company owned and operated by Michael Nowlin, Jr towed Barghout’s car. His wife Nicol stated in Judge Judy’s courtroom that Bargout threw a rock at the tow truck. The tow company would not return the towed vehicle for reasons that were not made clear in plaintiff defendant testimony.
When Hani called repeatedly trying get his car of the lot of the tow company, he heard background comments about the crazy Arab with the beard. Judge Judy saw through the whole thing recognizing the redneck, homophobe tow truck company owner and his lying, bigot wife had problems with hate and xenophobia. She awarded the aggrieved young gay man $5000 for tow fees and damages to be collected from the tow company owner with some sort of pierced jewelry underneath his lower lip. Isn’t that type of jewelry suggestive of a gay tendency or lifestyle? Nowlin stated, after he was ordered to pay $5000 to Hani, that Hani has issues or problems without directly calling him a faggot or any other derisive gay epithet or slur. Good for Hani for standing up to immature professionals like Nowlin.
