Ask the source and he’ll say hashtags and dumb luck made him an unlikely Richmond go-to for LOL. Once chastised at a station meeting for not being more liberal with hashtags, Autry decided to go with the snarkiest, most sarcastic tags he could think of. About a guy arrested for peeing in public, Autry wrote #urinetrouble.
