Meet 31-year old Curtis Bethea. Betha posed for the mugshot above after he was nabbed in connection to a slew of random attacks around Atlanta.
I don’t know if you guys have heard about the ‘knockout game’ that’s been going around on viral video for months now, but sites like Worldstarhiphop and YouTube are filled with examples.

The vicious attack is the noted as a random, unprovoked assault where an attacker attempts to ‘knockout’ a stranger with a single punch.
Bethea was allegedly involved in similar acts around Atlanta, in which he walked up to strangers in the midtown area, punched them in the face and ran away. *sigh*
According to the AJC:
Atlanta police have arrested and jailed a man accused of sucker punching at least three people.
Police believe Curtis Bethea, 31, is responsible for the unprovoked attacks in which he walked up to strangers and punched them in the face, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Channel 2 also found Bethea has a lengthy arrest record.

Atlanta police say Curtis Bethea is behind several unprovoked attacks in which he walked up to strangers and viciously punched them in the face.
The most recent punching incident occurred Tuesday in an office building on Peachtree Street, police said.
A week ago, a man told police that someone punched him in the face, knocking him into the street and causing him to nearly lose consciousness as he walked from a restaurant to the Midtown Arts Center MARTA station.
One victim, who asked not to be identified, called the attack “just a random act of violence.”
He said his glasses were broken and his face cut.
Police believe Bethea also punched a man on Crescent Avenue Jan. 5.
“This is one individual just walking down the street and making the decision to punch someone in the face,” Atlanta police spokesman Ralph Woolfolk said.
