Another proud moment for Philly...

(CNN) -- A man angry that a family was talking during a movie threw popcorn at the son and then shot the father in the arm, according to police in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
James Joseph Cialella, 29, was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons violations, a police report said.
Cialella told the family sitting in front of him in the theater on Christmas Day to be quiet, police said.
An argument ensued while others at the Riverview Movie Theatre watched "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
Cialella then approached the family from the left side of the aisle and shot the father, who was not identified, as he was standing between Cialella and his family, according to the police report.
The victim was taken to Jefferson Hospital with a gunshot wound to his left arm, police said.
Cialella was carrying a Kel-Tec .380-caliber handgun clipped inside his sweatpants, police said. He was arrested and taken into custody.
I guess when booing and throwing snowballs at Santa during an Eagles game gets old you can always shoot guys on Xmas in front of their kids. This guy may want to come up with a different story for the boys in prison. I won't think that shooting someone because he was talking over a Brad Pitt movie doesn't get you as much "street cred" as it used to. I mean if you shot someone during Fight Club - then you would be consider bad ass, but the Curious Case of Ben Button is pretty weak. I am just getting revved up for the Giants-Eagles game and this adds fuel to the fire. Phuckin' Philly. By the way that guy looks just like TJ.
