CRAPPY NEWS – 6/21/17
Happy Hump Day! Today's stories feature a cookout crook, a spaghetti slinger, and a dumbass dangler...
Laurinburg, NC- This is an early frontrunner for "Worst Barbecue of the Summer."
39-year-old James Seals was at a cookout last weekend when he allegedly robbed his friend at gunpoint and stole his jewelry. The friend called police and they apprehended Seals a short time later...it probably wasn't too hard to identify him.
Seals was arrested for robbery with a dangerous weapon. [Laurinburg Exchange]
I mean, you're at a cookout...did you at least steal some brats or hot dogs while you were at it? That would just make sense.
Stuart, FL- A spurned lover expressed her anger through pasta.
49-year-old Dale Wisniewski found out her boyfriend was leaving her, so she reacted the way any normal person would--she chugged a bottle of vodka, and got arrested for assaulting him with a plate of spaghetti.
Wisniewski told police that he had thrown her on a couch and broken her jaw, but officers saw no evidence of any injury.
Wisniewski faces a charge of domestic battery. And I'm just guessing that her former beau won't be trying to bail her out. [TCPalm.com]
Algiers, Algeria- A man has been sentenced to two years in jail after his stupid social media stunt.
The man posted a picture of himself dangling a baby out of a 15th-story window in a high-rise building with the caption: "1,000 likes or I will drop him."
The suspect, who's a relative of the child, denied actually putting the child at risk. He claimed that social media users had altered the image by removing protective railings from the picture, but a judge obviously disagreed. [BBC]
What if this was just a very elaborate plan to get the parents to ask for a new sitter?
