Freeland, PA police were having a hard time locating Anthony Lescowitch Jr., 35, who was wanted on charges including burglary and assault, so they posted his picture on the official police Facebook account. Lescowitch thought he was mocking the police when he shared the photo mere minutes after it had been posted, but cops had the last laugh when an officer posed as a woman on Facebook and began talking to Lescowitch about his wanted picture. The two arranged to meet … and Lescowitch was arrested at the location. Oops.
We’ve all experienced a little static while putting on our clothes. It’s not uncommon to get a tiny little shock while putting on your pants. But for one Chinese man, a little static resulted in third-degree burns. The 78-year-old man was putting on a pair of pants when a little static shock apparently ignited an unknown gas leak in his home. The resulting explosion was so powerful that it was felt more than 300 yards away. The man suffered burns to his face, neck and hands.
A Baltimore man trapped in his apartment during this week’s major snowstorm needed tacos really bad … so he did what he had to do. He posted a desperate ad on Craigslist asking for someone to take him to Taco Bell. His ad read, “I need someone with a 4-wheel drive vehicle to come pick my drunk [butt] up, take me to the Taco Bell drive-thru, and drive me back home. Then we can hang out and play video games if you’re not a rapist.” His ad received lots of chuckles but no offers, so he sobered up and drove himself.
