TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Spencer Robinson, 36, a Utah man who knocked over 30 tombstones because he thought it’d make it easier for the deceased to be resurrected on Easter.
Police were called to the cemetery after a visitor witnessed Robinson throwing headstones and kicking them over.
But Robinson told the cops he wasn’t vandalizing them, he was just moving them so it would be easier for the dead people underneath them to be resurrected on Easter Sunday.
He was arrested for one felony count of damaging property.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Four on-duty police officers in Jharkhand, India, who were arrested in a brothel raid when they were supposed to be transporting a convicted murderer to a hospital.
Rather than taking their prisoner directly to the hospital, the officers took a 128-mile detour to have “a little fun” and visit the red light district in the town of Asansol.
But, as luck would have it, local police raided the place during their visit.
In all the confusion, the convicted murderer managed to escape, but instead of fleeing, he made his way back to the jail.
The four officers were suspended until further notice.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
A Michigan college student, whose April Fool’s prank caused a fire, which led to the evacuation of their building.
Investigators said the fire apparently started when one of the four female college students living in the apartment tossed a fire cracker at a roommate as part of an April Fool’s Day prank.
The firework landed in a hamper, igniting the laundry inside.
Neighbors said the girls knocked on the doors of other units in search of a fire extinguisher, but the fire had grown too large by the time they were able to bring one back to the apartment.
The extent of the damage to the building is unknown.
Firefighters said the girl who pulled the prank probably won’t face charges from the incident.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Ashley Sies, 31, a Kentucky woman who tried to strangle another woman with a bra, but was thwarted when the victim fought back with a ceramic chicken.
Sies was arrested after she allegedly pushed her way into a home belonging to Patricia Leece, 61.
Sies tried to strangle the homeowner with a bra.
However, the home owner reached down and grabbed a ceramic chicken that was on the floor and smashed Sies with it.
Sies was knocked out by the chicken.
Leece locked herself in the bathroom and called police.
