The Keystone Kooks

The Keystone Kooks have a lot of trouble staying out of trouble. Like the old saying, "You just can't take them anywhere," you really need to lock these fools away from everyday people.

Charges filed in skinhead stabbings
Jason R. Honeywell is charged with assault in melee at Café Metropolis in W-B.


WILKES-BARRE – A Kingston man has been charged with stabbing two men during a recent melee outside Café Metropolis that witnesses say was started by members of a statewide skinhead group.

Jason R. Honeywell, 20, was arraigned Wednesday night on four counts of felony aggravated assault. He’s accused of stabbing Sean Fitzmaurice of Ashley and Timothy David Alonso of Wharton, N.J., outside the South Main Street club on Jan. 7 after a show.

Witnesses to the fracas told police the stabbing victims are members of a rival skinhead group.

Honeywell, listed in prison records as 6 feet 2 inches tall and 300 pounds, was sent to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility by District Judge Joseph Zola of Hazleton in lieu of $50,000 straight bail. Honeywell declined an interview with the Times Leader on Thursday.

Sean “Hutch” Hutchinson, who described himself as a traditional skinhead, was at the club the night of the stabbings. He said a small group of Keystone State Skinheads, including Honeywell, began making Nazi hand signals during a performance by the band River Side Riot, whose lead singer, Mike Lungs, is black.

“They were giving kids dirty looks and giving the ‘sieg heil,’ ” Hutchinson said.

Traditional skinheads and SHARPS, skinheads against racial prejudice, are generally at loggerheads with neo-Nazi or white power skinheads, who they call “boneheads.”
