Something set this guy off,  because he went berzerk. As reported by CBC News:

Durham Regional Police say that witnesses reported seeing a Honda going north on Concession Road 7 at a high rate of speed and swerving in front of oncoming traffic at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police allege that the driver stopped near Foster Drive, got out of his car and confronted other motorists.

Not cool, but it was just beginning.

According to police, the same individual then drove away and stopped near Ravenshoe Road, where it is alleged that he reached into the cab of a dump truck, assaulted the driver and damaged a radio.

Police also allege that the suspect then threw a hammer, which hit the dump truck driver’s arm.

Even less cool.

It is also alleged that the suspect swung a recycling box at a homeowner, which hit that individual in the head.

Really, really uncool.

The suspect is also accused of assaulting a police officer that came to arrest him.

Now you’ve done it.

[The] 53-year-old Udora man faces two counts of assault with a weapon, a charge of assault, a charge of assaulting a police officer, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and mischief under $5,000.

driving road

How about this explanation given by a man arrested for exposing himself while driving? As reported by The Kitsap Sun (Washington):

A 24-year-old Bremerton man arrested Wednesday for indecent exposure told a State Patrol trooper he was driving his car while not wearing pants because he recently received a body wax.

The “Manzilian,” or Brazilian for men, resulted in his jeans irritating his skin, he told the trooper, so he had been driving in his underwear.

A witness told investigators she had seen the man exposing himself and sticking out his tongue while driving on Highway 16 near the Tremont Street overpass, and had been doing so “since Gig Harbor,” according to court documents.

The man was booked into Kitsap County Jail and held on $5,000 bail.

Are you buying it? Here’s the source.

Subway Station in Munich

Was this gent sleeping or passed out? You make the call. As reported in The Brooklyn Paper’s Police Blotter for the 88th Precinct (Fort Greene–Clinton Hill):

The 46-year-old said he boarded the Brooklyn-bound train at Grand Central Station at 5 am. He told cops he was intoxicated and fell asleep shortly after boarding, and when he woke up the train had reached the end of the line at New Lots Avenue and turned around, according to a police report.

As he exited the train at Nevins Street, he discovered that his rear pocket had been cut and his wallet removed, the report says. The guy was out $350 cash, plus debit and credit cards, he said.

So, he was only awakened when the train got to the end of the line. And the thief was able to cut his pants and take his wallet unnoticed. The Juice is going with “passed out.”

You probably guessed that this did not happen in the United States. It happened in Kuwait, as reported by the Arab Times.

Some 45 youths were arrested by security operatives for loitering at the commercial complexes in Jahra governorate. The campaign, which was conducted upon the directives of Jahra Security Chief Major General Ibrahim Al-Tarrah, resulted in the arrest of three juvenile for throwing stones at the lamp posts, with five other individuals involved in criminal and civil offenses. All suspects were referred to the concerned authorities.

nude naked

When you’re naked, you are extremely vulnerable.  Clearly you’re even more vulnerable when you are in the shower.  A Houston woman was in just such a position when she heard a sound. Uh-oh. Per khou.com:

“I was showering and I heard banging and it sounded like construction being done on the house,” she explained. “I seen a guy punching with a glove and another guy was kicking at the same time. Immediately I knew what they were gonna do and my first reaction was find safety.”

What she didn’t manage to find was a towel or clothing of any kind. She did locate her keys and cell phone and slithered naked to the garage.

Whew.

“I let the garage up and started the car,” she recalled. ” I prayed and was like Lord please just let me get out safely.”

With that, she kicked it in reverse and somehow left her house unseen and unheard.

“Right after I got my first goal done I had a second goal and the second goal was to catch them,” she said.

So instead of driving as far from the house as she could, she called 9-1-1 and drove back around.

Gonna get you, suckas.

“I came back and got their license plate,” she said. “I had a full description of the car before I left but I came back a second time just to see and the third time around I saw all four of them walking out of my house.”

By the time a deputy constable arrived, the burglars were gone. The woman spotted some spare clothes in her car and put them on.

Who keeps spare clothes in their car? Anyway …

With a good description of the car, constables have tracked down the 17-year-old female owner and are questioning her. They believe all the suspects are teens who skipped school to commit the crime.

Think she’ll give up the other perps? Click here for the source.

ipad

What kind of criminal would steal a tracking device? Perhaps one who doesn’t know anything about iPads? As reported by wdrb.com (Louisville, Kentucky):

Louisville Metro Police say they arrested a woman on Monday after she was caught with a stolen iPad.

You probably know how they caught her.

Police say the iPad was tracked via GPS to the home of 48-year-old Lisa M. Johnson on Huntoon Avenue, near the intersection of Taylor Blvd. and Southern Pkwy. It was there that officers recovered the stolen iPad, according to the arrest report.

Damn that machine!

Johnson allegedly admitted to being at the location of the burglary on the day it took place.

She was arrested and charged with receipt of stolen property.

beard

This case certainly highlights how different cultures can be. As reported at arabtimesonline.com, in Kuwait City …

The Undersecretary of the Interior Ministry Lieutenant-General Suleiman Al-Fahd has ordered the detention of a police officer in the rank of Major for growing his beard without permission, reports Al-Rai daily quoting knowledgeable security sources. The source said Al-Fahd has also warned a lieutenant-colonel for the same reason and has issued strict instructions that disciplinary action will be taken against those who violate the laws especially if they grow beards more than 1.5 centimeters long.

Maybe he thought they wouldn’t notice? He measured wrong?

gun

This has to be one of the worst attempted burglaries of all time. It’s kind of like three guys running from their own shadows.  As reported by khou.com:

The suspects were among three men who walked into a Katz’s Boutique in the 9800 block of the North Freeway on April 13. It was around 3 a.m. and surveillance cameras were rolling.

Police say two of the men had weapons. The suspect with the revolver apparently bumped into the suspect with the rifle, causing the rifle to discharge. “Which then spooked both the suspects,” Officer Brieden said.

Doh! You can probably see where this is going.

Both men began shooting, and police believe they thought they were being fired upon. Nearly a dozen rounds were discharged. In reality, all the gunfire was coming from them. Investigators say that is what makes them so dangerous.

More than a dozen rounds! Let’s go to the videotape. (Click on the link at the end of the post.)

The video shows the suspect with the rifle shooting through a mannequin and the store’s front glass door before the both ran away.

Fortunately …

No customers were inside at the time. Two workers hid and were not harmed.

The burglars are still at large. Click here for the source, including a video news story with surveillance footage.

happy birthday

On your birthday, you get a little leeway. A little.  As reported by wlsam.com:

Will County Sheriff’s deputies were called to Precise Stone in the 14000 block of West Illinois Highway on April 30 when the owner reported a former employee trying to steal property.

Uh-oh.

En route to the scene, officers were told that the suspect was driving on Illinois Highway in the stolen forklift, according to a police report. Officers were quickly able to spot the vehicle, pull it over and arrest the driver.

Someone is in a mess of trouble.

Javier Villasenor-Arreola of East Chicago, Ind., who had turned 43 the day he was arrested, was charged with felony counts of burglary, theft and aggravated DUI; and a misdemeanor count of damage to property. He was also cited for operating a vehicle with expired registration and operating an uninsured motor vehicle, according to police.

The business owner told police Villasenor-Arreola had been terminated about two weeks earlier, and when he was leaving about 3:20 p.m. he saw Villasenor standing in front of the business, apparently intoxicated, the report said.

He drove around the block and when he returned, the front door window of the shop had been shattered, the garage door was open and Villasenor-Arreola was driving the forklift out of the garage onto the street, the report said.

Yikes.

He is being held in the Will County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
