Drag Queens behaving badly - again!

What is going on in Chicago's Drag Community?  
 
First we had the debacle with Lady Vera Parker aka Thomas Flannagan allegedly defrauding people on Craigslist and now a drag queen beauty pageant contestant accused of beating a judge with a trophy.
 
Leroy Tinch of Evanston was arrested on July 6th after he competed in a Pageant at the 5th City Center on W Jackson Blvd.  
 
Anthony Jackson, apparently an associate of Tinchs was not happy that a judge cast a vote for another contestant.  Jackson allegedly beat the judge with a trophy and Tinch allegedly pulled a 'sharp object' and cut the judge above his eye and his hand.

The judge, 37 years old Sebastian Latta from Baltimore, received 7 stitches on his finger and had his jaw broken in three places which required it being wired shut.  Latta is reported to have told an officer, "Apparently, I must have voted for the wrong person."

Apparently Tinch and Johnson fled from the scene because Tinch, who has "cat print" tattoos and breast implants was picked up around 2:40AM on Tuesday near 7100 N Clark St and Johnson turned himself in last Thursday.

Both have been charged with Class 1 felonies in the attack and bond has been set at $75,000.

I know that these individuals are not indicative of the overall Chicago Dragscene as there are many dedicated and professional
