Tony from West Side Story threatened to kill girlfriend Maria during an argument over whether their 19-month-old child would grow up to join the Anglo Jets or the Puerto Rican Sharks. . . .

Ludicrous? Yes. But, sadly, plausible in gangland-America.

According to The Denver Channel, a couple arguing over what gang their 19-month-old would join caused a public disturbance and the father was arrested. The mother is a member of the Crips, the father a member of the Westside Ballers. Clearly, this child is on the road to success like his parents before him.

I see a West Side Story sequel in the making.
