Wednesday 8/15

Manny Gar­rido, told inves­ti­ga­tors he began tin­ker­ing as a way to pass the time after his driver’s license was sus­pended and one of his projects was a single-round, .40-caliber gun he con­structed from a brass tube, a large nut, springs and a screw­driver. Well, Gar­rido acci­den­tally shot him­self in the leg with the gun while he was car­ry­ing it in his pocket. And it’s ille­gal for a felon to pos­sess a firearm or ammu­ni­tion in the state of Florida so he’s been charged.

A vis­i­bly intox­i­cated Kat­rina Jack­son refused to leave a Louisville tan­ning salon when her ses­sion had ended, and even went so far as to lock her­self into her own pri­vate booth. When cops arrived to rea­son with the woman, they reported hear­ing her slur her words and watch­ing her strug­gle to stay on her feet. Prob­a­bly had some­thing to do with the cocaine she had on her.  Jack­son was detained while being de-tanned, and faces charges of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance, pub­lic intox­i­ca­tion and dis­or­derly conduct.

A woman in Oslo, Nor­way, skirted the issue of how to get a brand-new tele­vi­sion with­out pay­ing for it by attempt­ing to walk out of a store with a 42-inch big screen unit shoved up the front of her dress!  The very nim­ble gal arranged the TV between her thighs and began to make her way awk­wardly toward the store entrance, but her odd gait raised the sus­pi­cions of secu­rity, which had police pull her off a bus. The thief and her com­pan­ion were Roma­ni­ans and told offi­cers she had “very strong thigh mus­cles.”  The brain mus­cles?  Not so much.
