Ynot at work.
Welcome to the first post of 2011, and Happy New Year. Let's hope it's a great one for all the dedicated Pulpsters -- and casual readers too, of course.

Thought I'd get in/ a post about the homicide of graffiti and tattoo artist Jonathan "Ynot" Corso, who was run over twice in the parking lot at Club Eden in Davie. A colleague from down south, Gus Garcia-Roberts, has broken some new ground on the story.

There was a lot of speculation about who was behind the crime. Answers have come to light after the arrest of the man who was at the wheel when Corso, photographed at right, was mowed down. But it wasn't the driver, Reynaldo Rodriguez, who triggered the deadly early-morning melee.  

Inside, see what happened and who really started the fight that would end Corso's life on his 21st birthday.  

From police reports and Miami New Times:

It started with a chronic thief and woman abuser named Francisco Chollet, 33. This is a guy who nine years ago was charged with breaking into dorm rooms at the University of Florida and fondling girls in their sleep. He did two years in prison for that and has had five domestic-violence claims filed against him in Broward County, including allegations that he beat up the mother of his child, once while holding the baby in his arms. "He would push me, choke me, and hit me...," the victim wrote in an injunction for protection. "He has threatened to kill me and I do not want my child to be [exposed to] this type of behavior."

Chollet pulled up to Corso, who had long dreadlocks, as he was walking out of the strip club with three friends. "What's up?" Corso asked him.

"I thought you were a bitch," Chollet said.  

This naturally led to an exchange of words whereupon Chollet spit on Corso, who responded in kind. Corso, his three friends, and Chollet and his compatriot Reynaldo Rodriguez began a "physical altercation." During the fight, Rodriguez climbed behind the wheel and ran over Corso, not once but twice. The Escalade's recorder showed that Rodriguez accelerated full-throttle in the parking lot and was going 16 mph when it struck Corso, who was 75 feet away.

Chollet wasn't charged. Rodriguez is charged with vehicular manslaughter and is free on $2,500 bond.

Thanks for Posting this Bob. This is some new information for the case not provided in other articles. I would also like to thank your for pursuing the case and providing updates. Many other people would have certainly forgot about it after 5 months.

Myself and the entire MSG crew thank you!

someone had best do a little research before publishing something like this. this is slander, crap and your source is a porn slut.maybe i will send you her videos and pictures and then we can talk about your reliable sources. how dare you not check out the facts before you go to print. this only confirms that you are a terrible rag in a terrible market. you should be ashamed of yourself. how dare you blasphemize someone like this..... a horrible decision on your part. Serina Vilanueva, a porn star wannabe,, and never will. A tramp out for vengence. We shall see.

Morning all. Happy new year. Any arrest today?

It's clear that Bob Norman is Broward County's "Person Of The Year." Why isn't the mayor giving him a placque? Or keys to the city? Wouldn't it be hysterical if Ritter and Lieberman was forced to honor Pulp in some way. Now that might make them resign, and whatever works, I say.

It started as verbal insults and a skirmish to spitting on each other than a physical altercation to vehicular homicide.....With his ignorant punkass attitude Its only a matter of time before this Mr Chollet (daddy of the year) is behind bars again, and HE becomes someones little bitch!!!...IMHO

unowho

$2,500.00 Bond ???........I would not be surprised if this Rodriguez guy( pulls a Scottyboy) and leaves the country.... If he is that much of a coward to use a two ton vehicle to fight ,he wont have the balls to do time...The low life women beater (while holding his child) Chollet walks away although he started the altercation.......PATHETIC!!!

Bob, honey, --we don't read your blog because of street-crime stories like the killing of Ynot. We read you for the inside poop on local electeds. It is THEIR crime we want to know about. Like f'rinstance when is Stacy Ritter going to be indicted? When will Mike Satz be indicted? -- Frawd Lauderdale would not exist if SATZ hadn't been busy looking the other way since he was elected (in 1976).

Bob, we don't need you to be a crime blotter reporter! We have Channel 7 for that.

The previous charges against your boy Frank are public record. As for the facts reported in Mr. Norman's article; all can be corroborated.

Oh - consider getting an education or at the minimum purchasing a dictionary - it's blasphemous or blasphemy. And neither word is applicable regarding the parties involved in this heinous and cowardly act of violence.

Bob got the information for the Broward County you idiot. Stop trying to defend your coward,worthless, piece of sh*t friends. These F'ers are going down !!!

Sorry, "were forced". If Ritter and Lieberman were forced to give the keys to the city to Bob Norman. It's the least we can do for Pulp. Where do we start the petition ...some rich guy's yacht got keys to the city last week, why not our illustrious favorite corruption buster.

I thought if you were with someone when they were committing a crime you were also charged at least with something. Seems these two were both guilty in a way by Chollet starting it and Rodriguez finished it. But what do I know.

I enjoyed the update. Thanks Bob, Good article. If possible I also would like to know an update on the road rage case with the supoosedly on duty customs agent.

Happy New Year everyone, You too sweet cheeks!

Satz hasn't been looking the other way. He's just doing what he is told to do, by the Broward corrupt elite.

Uh,honey? Perhaps if it had been YOUR son who was murdered you might think differently? That of course would be contingent on your ability to focus on someone other than yourself, which appears unlikely.

The Pulp is needed now more than ever to expose the REAL truth about what goes on in our town. It's clearly evident we won't get the full facts from main stream media. He's proven not to keep the public in the dark, as they so often do. I'm grateful to have the Pulp to give us the rest of the story. Try speaking for yourself, because I'm sure many would not agree with you on Bob's involvement on ALL things Broward. Happy New Year

But, dearheart, Channel 7 didn't report this story and crime reporting is part of the Pulp mission (though you're right that it's a distant second to electeds). I actually got a good break for the first time in a long long while and am looking forward to getting back in the swing. And to everyone who has been on here with good wishes, Happy New Year back at you and thanks for making this the best damn news blog in South Florida.
