A traf­fic deputy in Florida gave folks a real rea­son to cry after being pulled over – by hand­ing them onions instead of paper tick­ets for their infrac­tions. Lou Caputo, an offi­cer in the Florida Keys, often dresses as the Grinch at this time of year, and hands out the stinky onions to dri­vers who’ve been mildly naughty – by dri­ving less than five miles per hour over the speed limit. He actu­ally gives speed­ers the choice between an onion and a real ticket, and says that nine times out of ten, they choose the onion.

An uniden­ti­fied thug walked into a Shell sta­tion hold­ing a large plas­tic garbage bag, then placed a Snick­ers bar on the counter.  Then he demandied the cash. The atten­dant rec­og­nized the guy as a reg­u­lar cus­tomer and laughed at him, until he pulled out a gun and repeated his request – also demand­ing she turn over her cell phone. She laugh­ingly held her hands up, mid­dle fin­gers extended, but didn’t make any move toward the reg­is­ter, frus­trat­ing the crook,who grabbed the candy bar and fled.

A West Vir­ginia cou­ple used their get out of jail free card unwisely when they walked out of their cell and promptly got busted again – for crash­ing a deputy’s car while attempt­ing to steal it from the park­ing lot. Michael Lee Sharp and Amanda Clen­den­ing T-boned a sheriff’s car in the mid­dle of a high-speed chase just a stone’s throw from the facil­ity where they were being held.
