Oompa Loompas Louis Gelinas and Matthew Wright, who were decked out in green wigs and orange face paint for a night on the town, downed a few too many Gobstoppers and ended up drunkenly challenging two other men to a fight – because they didn’t like the way the other guys were dressed.Wright was sentenced to 10 months behind bars, while Galinas got off with community service.
Two Washington Sheriff’s deputies arrived to a call of an assault and found a woman in her bed, bloody, with two knives and a sword with a bent handle near her. Because they found no signs of forced entry, deputies began to suspect the woman’s 13-year-old son and his 14-year-old friend. When they went to the home of the friend, the father reported that his Dodge Durango SUV and keys were missing, which matched an earlier hit-and-run report. They found the Durango running with the keys still in the ignition, crashed into a mobile home. The department’s canine unit helped find the teens, which had been hiding nearby. According to a statement from the Spokane County sheriff’s department, “The victim’s 13-year-old son blamed his thought process on his drug usage and said he would never do anything like that sober.” The teens have been charged with assault, burglary and other crimes. Meanwhile, the mother was hospitalized in stable condition.
A Tennessee man was taken into police custody after he went bananas and tried to hunt down the pack of gorillas he thought had invaded his property! The man, whose name was not released, called 911 to report that the beasts were about to break into his house, but the dispatcher thought he was just monkeying around and tried to calm him down. The counseling didn’t work, and the man dropped the phone and grabbed his shotgun instead. After hearing shots fired, the dispatcher did send out an officer, who found the man sitting in his recliner holding the gun – which he’d used to blow several holes in his own door – but no sign of gorilla presence. He was taken in for a mental evaluation.
