Wednesday 8/8

A Las Vegas cop caught a motorist who ran through a red light in the course of a short pursuit, but didn’t arrest the man – because he was already dead!  The officer began following the vehicle because he noticed it moving erratically and when it went through a light and jumped a median, he jumped into action. When the car finally came to a halt after crashing into another vehicle, the officer approached – and found that the driver’s side door had several bullet holes, as did the driver. As of late Sunday night police had no witnesses, and no motive.

Apparently this New Jersey man hasn’t been watching the news. Matthew Argintar freaked out workers and customers at a Home Depot by coming in for a shopping trip wearing a complete Batman costume that included “tactical pants, elbow and arm pads and a bulletproof vest underneath his clothing,” as well as a pair of handcuffs. Many people in the store fled, obviously recalling the recent mass shooting at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.  But Argintar says he has been dressing as Batman for a while now. He says, “[I’m] out there to try and inspire hope because that’s what the people need right now. I’m not going out there looking for a fight.”  He was arrested for disorderly conduct.

A Pennsylvania crook who wanted to avoid being tracked by witnesses who could describe his clothing was busted after breaking into a vacant house – stark naked.  Cops responding to the scene spotted the unidentified man pacing on an upstairs balcony, bleeding and covered in mud. When pressed to surrender, he claimed that he was the owner of the property and demanded that officers leave immediately – while pointing a phone charger in their direction and threatening them with it. When the police didn’t flinch at the presence of that weapon, he threw a flower pot at one cop, but gave up when threatened with a taser. The man refused to give his name, saying, “You’d only run it for warrants.”
