2 shots and you’re ouch! — A Cal­i­for­nia man went home feel­ing no pain after tak­ing two shots at a local tav­ern which wouldn’t be news­wor­thy, except for the fact that the shots came from a hand­gun!  The uniden­ti­fied vic­tim told cops that he and a stranger began argu­ing in the bar’s park­ing lot, but broke up the before any­thing major hap­pened– or so he thought. He went back to his hotel and went to sleep, but woke up the next morn­ing and noticed his wounds, which led him to seek out police. Offi­cers went to the bar to search for clues, and the man was taken to the hos­pi­tal, where he was treated for wounds that were not life threatening.

It LOOKS like water - You might think twice the next time you order a cup for water and then sneak in some sprite… Mark Abaire, did just that and is now fac­ing a felony theft charge. A man­ager at the restau­rant told police he asked Abaire to pay for the soda and he refused, and then remained on the premises after being asked to leave. He then cursed at the man­ager, prompt­ing them to call the police. Due to pre­vi­ous petty theft con­vic­tions, what would have been a mis­de­meanor petty theft charge was esca­lated to a felony, which could earn Abaire up to five years in jail and a $5,000 fine. He also faces charges of tres­pass­ing and dis­or­derly intoxication.

A trippy get­away - Florida man Leonard Mor­ris attempted to flee from cops on foot after a car chase ended with him crash­ing into a tree! He started to make some head­way, but then suf­fered a wardrobe mal­func­tion when his baggy shorts got a lit­tle bit too loose and fell to his ankles, caus­ing him to tum­ble to the ground. Mor­ris was racked up on sev­eral charges, includ­ing pos­ses­sion of cocaine, attempt­ing to elude an offi­cer at high speeds and dri­ving while his license was revoked.
