I SERIOUSLY don't understand why there is confusion as to what happened with Keifer. This is a man that attacked a CHRISTMAS TREE in a hotel lobby. Why is anyone shocked that this happened??

For those that don't get it yet....he has a drinking problem, he has a hair trigger temper. When you put those two things together - it can add up to a very eventful evening. For people to keep searching for the "real reason" is ridiculous and a waste of time because there is not going to be a reasonable excuse - just booze and a temper.
