Cafe Owner Brutalized In Home Invasion Robbery

By 29 August 2011

Shocking news out of Gainesville, Florida. Anthony Rue, owner of Volta and friend of Sprudge, was hog-tied, pistol whipped and robbed in his home. At around 4PM EST, Anthony updated his Twitter feed, “Don’t try to call me. Phone smashed during home invasion robbery. Very bad day.” His computers and cameras were stolen and his home was ransacked. Fortunately, Anthony escaped the ordeal with minor injuries.

“On the upside,” Anthony later tweeted, “I kept my cool, didn’t get shot and I now know I can escape when hog-tied. Cave diving helped train me to work under pressure”. Our thoughts and prayers are with you tonight, Anthony. Send your thoughts to @true_volta.
