Idiots In The News 4-13-11
Every morning I like to cover the "Idiots in the News." Well, here are a three great stories from our idiots today:
1. An employee at an alcohol distributor in Pennsylvania called police after the scanner read the customer as 54 feet tall, instead of 5 feet 4 inches.
The scanner is used to verify age. It showed that the ID was valid, but when it printed out, it said only some data was accepted and it should have said "full data accepted".
The incident lead police to multiple fake ID's. The people interviewed gave the same web site as the source for the fake ID's.
The investigation is still going on, but charges are expected. Read the story HERE.
2. A man in Henry County, GA was arrested for robbing places with a garage door opener.
The 44-year-old man "armed" himself with the door opener and a telephone cord wrapped around it. He claimed it was a bomb, and threatened to blow it up if clerks didn't hand over the cash.
He walked out of two separate businesses "with an undisclosed amount of cash."
He's in custody now and cops are questioning him about a couple other robberies with a similar MO.
3. A guy in Silverdale, WA was so upset over a possible government shutdown that he punched himself in the face.
The 27-year-old Naval Shipyard employee was arguing with his girlfriend when he freaked out about the possible shutdown.
He was worried about losing his job and all the bills that were piling up, so he punched himself in the face... hard.
Cops saw a visible knot on the right side of his face.
He wasn't charged with any crime because no one was hurt.
