Video: Inauguration drunk attacks fire truck, authenticity questioned
D.C. Fire spokesman says he has no record of the incident and questions the video's authenticity based on the production quality

WASHINGTON — You might think that this video, showing what would appear to be a blazer-wearing drunk man pounding on and otherwise molesting a D.C. law enforcement SUV, then swearing at and demanding a job from people in an adjacent car, was staged.
"This video was certainly not staged though I do not blame any person for thinking so!" says Brian L. Johnson, the person responsible for DRUNKMAN In Traffic Takes On Fire & Rescue Squad.
Johnson is a senior at Howard University and also owns a multimedia production company. He tells The Huffington Post he was leaving his apartment for a photography gig on the Saturday before President Obama's second inauguration when he heard a man — the subject of his video, which is set to a suitably dramatic soundtrack — making noise outside.
