Woman Gets Flesh-Eating Bacteria…From THIS???
You may want to keep it PG-13 in the bedroom from now on. This is 'Crappy News' for Monday, July 24th.
Fresno, CA- A Starbucks customer stopped a robbery.
30-year-old Ryan Flores walked into Starbucks Wednesday afternoon and demanded money at knifepoint.
A customer, 58-year-old Craig Jerri, saw what was happening, picked up a metal chair and hit Flores in the back. Jerri eventually wrestled the knife away from Flores. Both men were stabbed during the scuffle, and Flores had to be hospitalized.
When he's released, he'll be charged with attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. [KRON-TV]
Chicago, IL- The first-ever 'Pokemon Go' Festival didn't quite go as organizers had hoped.
The gathering was meant to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the game and give fans and players the chance to meet each other and collect in-game rewards. But patrons were waiting in line for hours, and once inside, had connectivity issues (why were they surprised that thousands of people trying to use the same Internet would slow the network down?).
Many of the attendees had traveled from out-of-state, some paying as much as $100 for tickets. [Mashable]
Two issues with this. Number one, people still play Pokemon Go? Number two, you paid $100 to go to a park (that's normally free) and walk around. Catching Pikachu sounds like the LEAST of your problems...
Birmingham, England- A woman's sex games turned FATAL.
24-year-old Katie Widdowson got freaky-deeky with her boyfriend on New Year's Eve, which involved the couple messing around with handcuffs. Widdowson went to the hospital the next day, telling doctors that she'd injured her wrist after being restrained by her boyfriend. They diagnosed her with a simple sprain and sent her home.
But she was rushed to the hospital the next day her condition worsened. Turns out, she'd contracted a flesh-eating bacterial infection and wound up DYING a few days later. The coroner says physicians neglected to provide basic care for Widdowson, and her family plans legal action. [Telegraph]
