Ice on the roads...ice in the car. Here's 'Crappy News' for Wednesday, 12/27/17.
Merritt Island, FL- A man was arrested for attacking an ATM.
23-year-old Michael Oleksik went to the ATM to withdraw cash late last month. Surveillance footage shows him receiving money from the machine, then repeatedly punching the ATM's touchscreen.
Oleksik caused more than $5,000 in damage to the machine and was charged with criminal mischief. Court records show that Oleksik called the bank branch and apologized, telling the manager that he was "angry the ATM was giving him too much money and didn't know what to do." [Newser]
