ABOVE: A now mullet-less A.C. Slater, aka Mario Lopez.
The mullet was just too much.
Slater, the Army Brat and school jock at Bayside, played by Mario Lopez (more recently of Dancing With the Stars and Extra fame) held a position of honor in the men’s room.
No official word on what incited the violence:
“I just don’t like Slater,” the man reportedly told the owner after allegedly yanking the photo from its place of pride above a urinal and smashing it on the floor.
Was it the pleated Z. Cavariccis? The way Slater treated Jessie during senior year? Or something darker — was Slater somehow involved in the disappearance of sister J.B. Slater, who according to IMDb.com appears in a single episode before vanishing forever like Richie Cunningham’s older brother in “Happy Days”?
Or maybe he should’ve just passed on that drink, unlike Slater at that infamous senior-year toga party (you know, the one at Ox’s house, which led to the drunken driving crash in which Slater hurt his shoulder and learned that, even if Lisa was elected homecoming queen, you can’t just toss your morals out the window).
