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.”
