In hindsight, a fake bomb probably wasn’t the smartest gift to send to a courthouse. A box sent to a Pennsylvania Sheriff this week was put through a routine X-ray check, where staff discovered it contained a grenade. An evacuation was immediately ordered for the entire building, which lasted about an hour and a half. Meanwhile, investigators realized the “grenade” was mounted on a piece of wood that read “Complaint department. Take a number.” The sender was reportedly upset that his gag gift caused so much trouble, and police say he won’t be charged.
You could say their honeymoon phase was pretty short lived. According to police, a man recently proposed to a woman at a Walmart location in Michigan, in front of employees and other shoppers who all offered their congratulations. But later that same day, the man decided to enter another nearby store for a slightly different purpose. Officers say that after they responded to a shoplifing call, they found William J. Cornelius Jr with an edible thong, a sex toy and panties. He was later arraigned on one count of third-degree retail fraud.
There’s a reason they call them “man’s best friend”. Police in Orange, Massachusetts say a dog approached an officer this week barking hysterically. When he followed the animal, it led the officer across a field and down an icy embankment, where he found a second, trapped dog. Fortunately, the injured pooch was able to be freed and was later taken to the vet for a checkup. Officers later posted on their Facebook that “any dog in the right circumstance can turn into Lassie”.
Urine trouble! Police literally had to be called after a man’s clothing somehow got entagled on a urinal. Officers were notified after another person in the bathroom heard the man swearing to himself. It’s unclear exactly how it happened, but security staff were able to free the man.
This isn’t the second coming we were expecting. Secret Service agents investigated a man at the Hampton Inn after receiving a “be on the lookout” alert. While being questioned, Scott Stockert allegedly said he was planning to go to the Capitol to advocate $99 per month healthcare and to announce he was running for president. Oh, and he also wanted to steal Bo, one of two dogs owned by the Obamas. Stockert, who also identified himself as Jesus, was later arrested after officers found several weapons in his possession.
