Man Makes Bomb Threat…So His Parents Won’t Visit Him
This is "Crappy News" for Tuesday, January 28th, 2019.
Manitoba, Canada- This is a weird way to prove a point.
Officers pulled over an SUV for speeding last week. And the driver was so mad about it that they threw the citation out the window.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police posted a video showing the driver taking their recently issued speeding ticket and holding it out the window, where it’s caught by the wind and blown away.
The driver was then issued a $174 ticket for littering. [Global News]
You could at least WAIT FOR THE COPS TO LEAVE before trying this.....
Jacksonville, FL- Not that there's a GOOD reason to steal money from your job, but this is a BAD reason to steal money from your job.
Gretchen Camp allegedly embezzled $4 million from the tax management company where she worked, and stole an additional $1 million that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms refunded to the company.
According to the arrest warrant, Gretchen Camp confessed to company executives that she embezzled under pressure from her husband, Richard Camp, who was trying to buy gold, silver and weapons...to prepare for the fall of the U.S. government.
They're both facing multiple charges, including fraud, grand theft & money laundering. Gretchen Camp is claiming that she was under duress and "coerced or forced to participate" in the scheme. [News4Jax]
That could be true, in fairness...but it would be awfully hard to convince a jury of that.
Lyon, France- What is this kid hiding?
A 23-year-old college student REALLY, REALLY didn't want his parents to come visit.
So, he did what any completely sane person would--he called their airline and said there was a bomb on their flight.
The flight was diverted back to the airport in Lyon and all the passengers --including the guy's parents--had to get off until the police could sweep for a bomb.
Investigators tracked the bomb threat back to the guy, and he was arrested. He's been charged with false news compromising the safety of an aircraft and faces up to five years in prison. [The Independent]
