Start the week with a sampler of the bizarre. All these stories feature food-and-drink related incidents. Mmm, taste the weird.
First, Dan sends a link to this story:
[P]olice arrested a woman early Christmas morning after she reportedly stabbed a man with a ceramic squirrel in an argument over beer.
Ah, with the added context it makes perfect sense.
Second, another crime story Dan calls “comfort food:”
The victim told police that his brother, Jerome Davis, “made three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ate them in the living room. Within the next hour, the suspect made another three of these peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bringing his total consumption of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to six. This angered the victim.”
You gotta stop at five. Five, man.
A server asked Skytta if he had money to pay for his meal, to which Skytta replied, “No, but I am a cop, and I get food for free.”
The report said Skytta, 55, then pulled an OPD insignia patch out of his wallet.
The server told Skytta police pay for their meals at IHOP and he wouldn’t be getting any free food. … [Skytta] then dropped his pants and exposed himself to the server and customers, the report said.
The best part?
Skytta was still at the booth when police arrived.
Police had to use olive oil to free a naked man who became trapped in a top-loading washing machine.
The unctuous intervention was part of a 20-minute rescue operation mounted in Mooroopna, Victoria, to pry the man from the hiding place he had planned to use to surprise his wife.
“He was very well wedged in there and we were concerned for his health and wellbeing,” Shepparton police sergeant Michelle De Araugo told Shepparton News.
‘‘It was just a game gone wrong. It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed.”
Olive oil. So good for what ails you.
