Firing by chocolate


KitKatIowa man Robert McK­e­vitt says that he fed a dol­lar into a vend­ing machine for a Kit-Kat bar, but had the sweet treat get stuck at the edge of the row. His crav­ing was strong enough that he slid in another green­back to try to nudge the candy for­ward – a maneu­ver that also failed. McKevitt’s mood then turned sour, lead­ing him to drive his fork­lift up to the machine and lift it, slam­ming it to the ground sev­eral times, ulti­mately dis­lodg­ing three Kit-Kats – and dis­lodg­ing him from his pay­check, a prob­lem com­pounded by the fact that he’s been denied unem­ploy­ment ben­e­fits because of the nature of his firing.

Texas Offi­cers were called to inves­ti­gate a report that Paul Dewalt Jr. had threat­ened his girl­friend with a box cut­ter. When they arrived at the scene they attempted to take him into cus­tody only to have him agree, as long as he could bring along his crack pipe. A deputy tried to seize the device, at which point Dewalt got vio­lent and tried to break it, earn­ing him a resist­ing arrest charge in addi­tion to the assault and pos­ses­sion bids.

A drunken Eng­lish­man was on his way home and some­how found him­self walk­ing along a roof of a local pet store.  He wasn’t pay­ing much atten­tion and stepped on a sky­light which gave way.  The man tum­bled through the roof and crashed into a large fish tank!  I’m not sure how he man­aged to escape but cops found him wan­der­ing the streets soak­ing wet and most likely extremely embarrassed.
