YouTube sensation lands in Cuban jail

Pánfilo

A Cuban man whose drunken rant about hunger has been seen by more than 300,000 YouTube viewers is in jail, Cuba Encuentro reports.
Juan Carlos González Marcos, nicknamed Pánfilo, reportedly faces two years in prison. I don't have details of his case or the accusations against him. According to some accounts, Gonzalez is accused of "dangerousness," which in Cuba means that authorities fear he'll commit a crime.
