After Jokingly Tweeting He Would Murder Roommate, Man Gets Arrested For Murdering Roommate

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 2.40.34 PMIn a Tweet that is rapidly going viral today for its ominous foreshadowing, a 21-year-old named Zac Penton in Arizona joked this weekend that his roommates were driving him nuts:

It’s a joke — I guess? — that sarcastically encapsulates some of the frustrations of living with others. We’ve all been there. Maybe the garbage doesn’t get taken out or the toilet paper doesn’t get refilled on the roll. Either way, Penton clarified on Twitter moments later:

“[T]hey literally got into a drunk fight after one of them was stung by a bee, like wtf,” Penton wrote. Nothing to see here, right?

That is until authorities announced that Penton was arrested Sunday for the shooting murder of one of those roommates. “Authorities say a fight led to one roommate shooting another roommate Sunday at a home near Chandler Heights and Higley roads,” reports ABC15.

The roommate — 41-year-old Daniel Garofalo — was declared dead at the scene. More information has not yet been released in this case.

Although little is known about the 21-year-old Penton, a quick scroll through his social media history turns up several eye brow-raisers in hindsight:
