Scootin' along

An elderly Indi­ana man noticed that his garage light was on and went out to inves­ti­gate, find­ing an intruder rifling through his pos­ses­sions. When the thug charged at him, he grabbed a shovel and smacked him around until he fled. Appar­ently pumped up by his win, the home­owner went to his com­puter to spread the news. He wrote: “This mes­sage is for the thief and his friends that has been steal­ing tools and mis­cel­la­neous items around our neigh­bor­hood and town. How does it feel to get whacked with a long han­dle shovel by an old man, not once, but twice? If you want to try again, come on back.” I posted this in the free post­ings, since this guy thinks every­thing in our com­mu­nity and my garage is free.” 

He may be break­ing the rules of fash­ion and good taste, but accord­ing to police in Madi­son, Wis­con­sin, a man known as the “Thong Cape Scooter Man” is not break­ing any laws by rid­ing his scooter wear­ing noth­ing but a thong and a cape.  Madi­son police were called by staff at an ele­men­tary school when the “Thong Cape Scooter Man” was seen rid­ing his motor­ized scooter past the school while stu­dents were present. Police vis­ited the 56-year-old man’s home and he told them he “exer­cised poor judg­ment by going by the school at that time of day, it was unin­ten­tional and he just hap­pened to be trav­el­ing through the area.” The man, whose name was not released, was not arrested or cited. He is free to ride on in his under­wear and cape.

thong scooter manGabriel Gon­za­lez and Jeremy Lovitt thought they could have it their way when they walked into a Burger King with guns drawn and demanded that a cashier clear out the reg­is­ters. As she was com­ply­ing, one of her col­leagues slipped out the back, where he found the get away car run­ning. So he jumped in and took off, hid­ing it around the cor­ner. The diver­sion caused enough of a delay that cops were able to bust the two crooks, who pan­icked and tried to flee on foot.
