Lesbian Couple Fights Back Against Homophobic Attacker

Lesbian Couple Fights Back Against Homophobic Attacker

When 22-year-old William Adam Lane saw a lesbian couple embracing early Sunday morning outside of a bar in Bellingham, Wash., the only reaction he could muster was to yell homophobic slurs at them.

When 22-year-old William Adam Lane saw a lesbian couple embracing early Sunday morning outside of a bar in Bellingham, Wash., the only reaction he could muster was to yell homophobic slurs at them. When they wouldn't react to his taunts, he smashed the back window of the Toyota the couple arrived in, causing $600 in damage. But the women didn't let him get away.

Instead, one of the women tackled Lane and pinned him to the ground while waiting for help from a bouncer at another nearby bar, according to the Bellingham Herald. Neither of the women were hurt, but Lane was arrested for an alleged hate crime, and he could also be charged for assault because of his threatening actions.
