A Connecticut man is “pining” for his freedom after being arrested for climbing the Christmas tree in his town’s square and ranting bizarrely until he was removed by cops. The appropriately-named Noel Delgado got three-quarters of the way up the tree in the middle of New Haven before getting stuck because the banner he was carrying got tangled in the branches. Authorities cut off power to the 30,000 LED lights adorning the tree until Delgado could be removed from his perch.
A Delaware woman Melissa Brittingham was filling out an application at a Five Guys location and then hit the road with hopes of landing a gig – as well as 15 bucks in change and small bills that she stole from the tip jar. The waitresses on duty noticed the missing cash and notified the manager, who reviewed security tapes and saw Brittingham swiping the dough. The manager aired her beef with Brittingham to cops, who arrested her on charges of retail theft. She’ll have to serve one year of probation and pay a $500 fine.
Being named “Employee of the Month” is kind of a big deal at one Florida Walmart. Willie Mitchell was apparently so enraged that his co-worker was named “Employee of the Month” instead of him that he went out into the parking lot, grabbed his gun and shot up her SUV – thus guaranteeing him jail time and little chance at ever winning “Employee of the Month.” In fact, he’s already been terminated from his job.
