Drunk in the Christmas aisle


A Florida man found out that being hard-headed is actu­ally a pretty good thing. Wal­ter San­ti­ago had just picked up his grand­daugh­ter from mid­dle school and was headed home, when he felt some­thing smack him in the tem­ple and noticed a lit­tle trickle of blood – and a bul­let sit­ting next to him in the driver’s seat! While he did need six stitches on the side of the head, San­ti­ago was not seri­ously injured, just a lit­tle bit ticked off. He said he saw the inci­dent as, “Just some­one being stu­pid. If you want to kill some­one, get a lot closer.”

MotorCartA Cleveland-area man had a bit too much hol­i­day cheer before head­ing out to do his Christ­mas shop­ping and ended up get­ting pulled over for dri­ving drunk.  Ear­lie Wat­son was spot­ted drink­ing beer in the lobby of the Wal-Mart store before climb­ing onto one of its motor­ized shop­ping vehi­cles for a trek through the aisles. He made a pit stop at the men’s room, then placed a 12-pack of brewskis in the cart’s bas­ket, at which point cops showed up to ques­tion him. Wat­son said he was on his way to a nearby sub­urb and knew that he was in a Wal-Mart, but wasn’t sure exactly what town he was in at the moment. He was held until he sobered up and released with a citation.

The Florida Col­lier County Sheriff’s Office said Ryan Kee­gan allegedly bur­glar­ized at least seven cars in Naples, Fla.  He also left a few things behind like his wal­let, an iPod and T-shirts.  Even if he adamantly denied that he didn’t do the dirty deeds, deputies said one home­owner had sur­veil­lance video of Kee­gan walk­ing around shirt­less before break­ing into a car. Inves­ti­ga­tors said Kee­gan was highly intox­i­cated at the time of the inci­dent and does not seem to remem­ber much about his actions.
