Again, we have crazy criminals, dumb criminals, and unlucky criminals listed in the local paper!

Besides the usual arrests from traffic stops that turned up people with outstanding warrants, we also have a couple of offbeat items. Like a woman arrested for fighting with a man in a Waffle House. A Waffle House? Couldn't she wait till she got him home?

And then the two women who persuaded a man to take them home. But when he put them out, they decided they wanted to go somewhere else. He protested because he didn't want to be late for work. So one woman started hitting him and the other vandalized his car. The police, of course, took them away. But that didn't stop him being late for work, did it? 

The strangest one wasn't in the local crime blotter. It had its own front-page story in the newspaper. Seems this man saw a suspicious car in his neighborhood. He decided its driver was casing his house to rob it (!!!) so he got his gun, jumped into his car, and chased it down. After repeatedly motioning for the other driver to pull over, the second driver did. The armed man got out, waving his gun and terrifying the other driver. Luckily, several people had called the police and a level-headed cop talked him into putting down his gun.

Oh, did I mention the other driver was eighty-one years old and simply driving through the crazy nut's neighborhood on his way home? Yes, old people do drive slowly, but really!!!

Love the local paper!


  1. The armed fellow seems to be just a wee bit, maybe a smidgen paranoid.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Love local news.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. A lot of people fight at Waffle House!

    Happy New Year, Cheryl!

    1. You may be right. I wonder why? The wait staff have always been very nice to me and the air smells like waffles which surely wouldn't be conducive to a knock-down, drag-out!
