No! Chocolate Truck Bursts Into Flames On Iowa Highway
Did the firefighters bring any marshmallows? This is "Crappy News" for Friday, June 29th, 2018.
Dallas, TX- A man went to jail...for posting negative Yelp reviews.
54-year-old William Stanley got into trouble after threatening to post derogatory comments about a financial firm...unless they paid him $30,000.
The firm pressed charges, Stanley was ordered to pay $175,000 in restitution...and he got three years in prison for it. But he got paroled less than a year later. Within weeks of his release, Stanley followed up on his threat, launching smear campaign online against the same firm--from his halfway house. Stanley published the bogus information on at least eight websites, including Yelp and Facebook.
Madison, WI- A creep got clipped by karma.
Police say a 32-year-old man purchased a shoe-mounted camera with the intent of taking "upskirt" videos of women. However, before he could get any footage...the camera's battery EXPLODED.
He wound up with an injured foot, and apparently a guilty conscience...because he went to the cops to turn himself in.
Dexter, IA- This is not the kind of hot chocolate I'd prefer.
A semi carrying Hershey's chocolate caught fire on I-80 Wednesday morning. Iowa State Patrol said the truck was headed westbound and had brake problems.
The driver pulled off the Interstate onto a grassy area but was able to unhook the truck from the trailer before it burst into flames.
A passerby recorded video of the truck on fire. No injuries were reported, but the chocolate was a total loss. [KCCI - Des Moines]
I've heard of burning calories, but this is a little drastic.
