Friday 10/12

Penn­syl­va­nia man Jef­frey McMullen walked into a bank where he was a reg­u­lar cus­tomer and slipped a teller a note say­ing that he demanded one buck, only to be laughed off and sent to another win­dow – where he tried again and got laughed off a sec­ond time. Even­tu­ally, one of the bank’s employ­ees handed him a dol­lar from her purse, but he insisted on being taken into fed­eral cus­tody. He got part of that wish granted when local police arrived to take him in on a psy­chi­atric hold to deter­mine why he wanted to go to prison so badly.

A Florida man spoiled his young daughter’s birth­day party by giv­ing an unin­vited guest the fin­ger – after the man invaded the soiree with a machete and sliced the digit off his right hand!  The 42-year-old man, whose name was not released, was throw­ing a party for the lit­tle girl when an acquain­tance showed up and began steal­ing beer – which led to a con­fronta­tion. When the host tried to stop the man from rid­ing away on his bicy­cle, the beer thief pulled a machete out of his waist­band, sliced the host, and then fled! The sev­ered fin­ger was reat­tached and the attacker was nailed … and all signs point to a conviction

A Michi­gan man’s neigh­bors were left think­ing he was com­pletely nuts after he burned down a large por­tion of their apart­ment com­plex while try­ing to cook din­ner The man, whose name was not released, was on his third floor bal­cony when he got a han­ker­ing for some flash-roasted rodent, and broke out a blow torch and aimed it at a squir­rel! He didn’t get too far into the cook­ing process when things got out of hand, lead­ing to the flames hop­ping to the roof, then to upper floors of the build­ing.  No one, other than the squir­rel, was injured in the fire
