But we need MORE guns, right America? Oklahoma police responding to a call at 3:25 a.m. Monday morning found a familiar sight: A 16-year-old boy writhing around with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his leg. The same boy officers had helped save three months ago when he literally did the exact same thing. Officers quickly treated the boy to stop the bleeding and took him to the hospital. Police say the “quick action” of the officers on scene helped save the teen’s life. Authorities have since confiscated the gun.
To freedom! Two surprisingly-clever 5-year-old boys hatched a plan to escape from their kindergarten class in Russia. But this wasn’t a silly little plan they came up with suddenly. It took days of concrete planning and calculation. Using shovels from the school’s sandbox, the pair spent about a full week slowly digging a tunnel underneath a fence. Then, during a class walk on school grounds one day, the two kids made a break for it and crawled through their escape route, running to a luxury car dealership (they obviously needed a getaway ride, after all). Fortunately, a concerned woman spotted the pair and turned them into the police station.
As if flying coach wasn’t bad enough already… According to a police report, Oregon man Jeff Rubin was sleeping for most of his flight from Anchorage to Portland. But about 30 minutes before landing, he woke up, unzipped his pants and began urinating in the crack between the seats in front of him, soaking the passenger sitting there. But it gets worse! The report goes on to say that Rubin then lost his balance and fell backward, spraying urine all over the passengers, seats and luggage around him. Rubin now faces charges of criminal mischief and, our personal favourite “offensive littering.”
Maybe you should consider a cat next time? Farmer Penny Phillip’s horses startled her pet pig on Thursday, and the scare was enough to help the porker clear a four-and-a-half foot electric fence. Phillip, startled by the startled pig, then took cover on her children’s trampoline. Once there, she yelled at the pig and tried to scare it away, but the animal responded by digging a hole and camping out in front of her. Eventually, she was forced to call police. The pig was moved back to a fenced area unharmed.
What did you expect from a woman with 3,500 knives? Police officers arrived at Nickcole Ellen Fay Dykema’s home to serve her multiple felony warrants. But when repeated requests to answer the door were met with obscenities, they forced their way in. Dykema attempted to use a “large sword or machete” type weapon to stab the officer, but missed (fortunately). Authorities did receive minor injuries, however, once they realized many of the woman’s weapons, blankets, floors and yard were booby trapped. Yeah, that’s right, booby trapped. Dykema has since been charged with three counts of probation violation, property damage/criminal mischief, resisting officer without violence and assault.
