Eye for an eye & a foot for jail time - Harold Cal­loway was shot about 2 a.m. as Ken­tucky fans were cel­e­brat­ing Kentucky’s 67–59 vic­tory over Kansas on Mon­day night. The shoot­ing hap­pened after some peo­ple in a vehi­cle had exchanged words with some bystanders. A per­son on the side­walk opened fire with a hand­gun, shoot­ing Cal­loway in his foot as he exited the vehi­cle. Unfor­tu­nately, because of the extent of the injuries, his foot had to be ampu­tated. Even more unfor­tu­nate than that, turns out Cal­loway has out­stand­ing crim­i­nal war­rants on drug-related charges in Indi­ana and is being held for extra­di­tion once he recovers.

Bat­man behind bars - Christo­pher Schwartz, who calls him­self the Bar Har­bour Bat­man, wrote a post on his Face­book page say­ing, “I demand pay­ment of one mil­lion dol­lars or I will blow up the hos­pi­tal. Once the funds are secured, pri­vate mes­sage me for fur­ther instruc­tion.” When police showed up with cuffs ready, Schwartz said it was all a gag and offered to pub­licly apol­o­gize, but was still hauled in. He now says he may sue, since the arrest con­sti­tuted a vio­la­tion of his civil rights.

AW, SHOOT! - A man who was leav­ing a Geor­gia gun show after buy­ing a hand­gun for pro­tec­tion didn’t know the per­son he was pro­tect­ing him­self from was him­self! The man, whose name was not released, had just left the show with his new pur­chase and headed into the park­ing garage to head home when the gun dis­charged, blow­ing a hole in his leg.  Yeah…might want to check that your new gun isn’t loaded!
