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charges, including possession of cocaine, attempting to elude an officer at high speeds and driving while his license was revoked.
