    This if from a couple hours ago:

    Brandon Thorson didn't find much to joke about. The 23-year-old factory worker from Minneapolis said he just wanted to go home -- but he tried to do it through police lines.

    "One officer used his club to push me away and another officer hit me in the back with his club," Thorson said. "A third officer came in and sprayed me right in the face."

    Minutes after the skirmish, Thorson's right eye was nearly swollen shut from the pepper spray. He was not arrested.

    Nice.
