Little Caesars Shut Down After Couple Finds Poo In Their Pizza
Ah, yes...the old #2 special. This is 'Crappy News' for Thursday, February 15th.
St. Croix County, WI- A fugitive literally got left out in the cold.
Police attempted to pull over 33-year-old Kenneth Shutes, Jr. last week, but Shutes kept driving, speeding through several stop signs before exiting the car and running. While fleeing, Shutes tripped trying to leap over a barbed wire fence in a dense wooded area.
Lost, freezing, and having difficulty walking, Shutes called 911...on himself. Police & paramedics tracked him down and took him to the hospital, where he was later arrested.
Authorities say Shutes was cooperative and apologetic after being found. He's been charged with failure to obey an officer, marijuana possession and obstructing an officer. [Pioneer Press]

Sarov, Russia- Scientists have been arrested for using the computer at a nuclear facility...to mine for Bitcoin.

Mining crypto-currencies requires great computational power and huge amounts of energy. The Federal Nuclear Centre supercomputer boasts a capacity of 1 petaflop, the equivalent of 1,000 trillion calculations per second. [BBC News]
I don't know much about Bitcoin (like, anything at all), and even I know this was a dumb idea.
Indianapolis, IN- A Little Caesars was temporarily shut down after a couple found rodent feces baked into the crust of their pizza.
Johnathan McNeil says his girlfriend noticed something weird with the pizza as they were driving home. They returned to the store and complained to employees. The couple then called police, who urged them to contact the Health Department.
An inspector spotted the rodent droppings and immediately suspended the store's business license.
The restaurant had been dealing with a mouse issue since August 2017. The location had been cited four times since the summer for mice-related problems, but was never closed. Before the restaurant was given an all-clear in October, it had received seven violations in 2017 alone. [FOX 59]
