RICHMOND, VA - Lovely Robinson, 25, had to cancel her order of Wendy's deluxe chicken sandwiches and opt for plain 99¢ chicken sandwiches instead because she didn't have enough money. She wanted the deluxe sandwiches at the reduced price, but Latanya Nelson (the manager on duty) would not comply. What Robinson did next was appalling. She climbed over the counter and attacked Nelson, ultimately biting her. The police arrested Robinson and charged her with several offenses. I think Lovely needs to have a name change because she doesn't appear to be so lovely!
JUPITER, FL - Joshua James, 24, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, after visiting a Wendy's restaurant. What did he do? He threw a 3-foot alligator through the drive-thru window and took off. Why? It was just a prank. Make that one dumb prank! He was arrested shortly after the incident.
WILDWOOD, FL - Johnny Roldan, 29, entered a Walmart and bought some groceries but tried to shoplift a DVD. A loss-prevention officer spotted him and detained Roldan until the police arrived. Upon his arrest, Roldan felt remorse, probably because he had plenty of money (over $400) in his pocket to pay for it! At least he knew not to resist arrest.
CLARKSVILLE, TN - Ronald Taylor entered a Golden Corral and showed the cashier a badge and concealed handgun. But there happened to be a Clarksville police detective behind him in line. Taylor said he was a police officer from out of town, but the detective soon discovered that he was an insurance agent from Kentucky, and Taylor was charged with impersonating an officer. Why did Taylor do this? Just to try to get a free drink! Dumb!
SAN DIEGO, CA - Adrian Blanche Swain, 29, got a haircut at 619 Barber Shop and left satisfied, giving Manny Montero a $20 tip. But an hour later, she came back with a gun, threatening Manny and cursing at him. She attempted to fire the gun three times, but each time it malfunctioned. Another barber nearby tackled Swain to the floor and waited for police. Now she is charged with attempted murder! She pled not guilty in court, but plenty of witnesses saw that she was definitely guilty. But sometimes that doesn't matter. Here in America, you can throw tantrums and try to get away with murder!
BRADENTON, FL - Anthony Nemeth, 26, walked into a Walgreens on February 14 and headed straight toward the pharmacy counter. He told the female pharmacist that he had a gun and demanded all the Oxycodone pills. But the pharmacist's boyfriend, David West, happened to be there, visiting her on Valentine's Day. Who is David West? He happens to be a pro boxer and former two-time Florida boxing champ! Do I have to tell you what happened? Before Nemeth could escape, West threw a few combinations, knocking him to the ground. West held the crook there until the police arrived.
MORRO BAY, CA - This is a story about some dumb employees. Someone claiming to be a fire department official called up a Burger King. He told the employees that there was a major gas leak and that they should smash out several windows for ventilation. And, you guessed it, they did! When the real fire department officials and police showed up, everyone soon realized that it was just a prank... a very expensive prank!
PALM BEACH, FL - Juan Bixby, 35, and Julian Lopez, 27, saw a stranded cyclist on the sidewalk. They pulled over, and with gun in hand, demanded money. The cyclist told them that he didn't have any money on him, but that he could get some the next day and give it to them. They agreed and left. The cyclist called 911 immediately with full description and license plate number. Within 15 minutes, the police had the dumb pair in custody.
