TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
An eight grade student in Holiday, Florida who faces felony charges after changing the background photo on his teacher’s computer to show two men kissing.
The teen used an administrative level password to access the school’s computer network and change the background photo as an April Fool’s prank.
The teen says it was an innocent prank, but he’s being charged with felony offense against a computer system.
He was suspended for 10 days along with his arrest.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Operators of a Brinks armored truck in West Texas, who accidentally dumped thousands of dollars onto a highway, causing a near riot as drivers pulled over to pocket it.
Police say the truck was driving on I-20 when a bag of cash fell out of an unlocked side door and split open.
Dozens of motorists slammed on their brakes and began pocketing the money and fights broke out amongst them before police arrived.
It’s unclear exactly how much money was in the bag, but one driver said it was like swimming in a sea of money.
The guards have been placed on leave, pending an investigation.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Secret Service Officer Arthur Baldwin, who was arrested in Washington for trying to break into a woman’s home while carrying a handgun.
The 28-year-old Baldwin, who had just gotten off duty, was still under surveillance by the agency because of his high-level security clearance.
Police were called after he broke into the home of his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend and he was arrested at the scene.
Secret Service director Joseph Clancy ordered Baldwin’s security clearance to be suspended and placed him on administrative leave.
