ST. LOUIS Veteran Democratic fundraiser Matthew Lieberman has been charged with multiple felony gun crimes after allegedly firing a handgun and shouting racial slurs at eyewitnesses at two businesses Tuesday.

According to court documents, Lieberman reportedly pointed a handgun at someone at the Amoco gas station on Skinker Boulevard and Highway 40 (Interstate 64) while using racial epithets. He then allegedly fired multiple shots at the building from his car.

In court documents, investigators said surveillance footage showed Lieberman with the gun, and bullet casings at the scene matched the make and model of bullet casings found in Lieberman's car.

In a separate incident at the Jack in the Box on Hampton Avenue, Lieberman became irate, shouting racial epithets at multiple people performing maintenance work on the restaurant, according to court documents. He discharged a gun multiple times from a Mercedes sedan, the documents say.

Oh My!!! Good thing the moron was

According to other court records, Lieberman and his then-wife sued a doctor in 2016, claiming that while treating him for chronic back pain, the doctor overprescribed opiate pain relievers. Lieberman became addicted, and suffered "immense mental and physical distress" in a rehab program, the documents say.

The doctor and the hospital denied Lieberman's claims. He later dropped the lawsuit.

I was about to ask, half sarcastically, what the guy was on, but then read this in the article. Sounds like he's back on something - maybe something else, maybe trying to go off the opiates cold turkey on his own.
