TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
David Lee, 45, who accidentally stabbed himself while shoplifting a pre-paid phone from a Pennsylvania Wal-Mart.
Lee was trying to get the phone out of its plastic packaging when he got frustrated and pulled out his knife.
As he attempted to cut the plastic, he violently jabbed his arm, causing so much bleeding that he had to airlifted to the hospital.
He was arrested at the hospital after the entire incident was confirmed on surveillance video.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Tanzania Brazel, a Florida mom who was arrested for ordering her 9-year-old daughter to fight another girl at a bus stop.
Brazel’s daughter had run home from school and told her that her backpack had been taken.
Brazel drove her daughter back to the bus stop, parked her car so it blocked the bus from leaving and yelled for her daughter to fight the other girl, a police report stated.
A witness said, “Her daughter really didn’t want to fight. She was just listening to her mom.”
Brazel was arrested on child endangerment charges.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Eddy Juan, 52, who was caught under a table at a Florida library smelling women’s feet, then led cops on a scooter chase until he crashed.
Prior to the incident, police at Florida International University had released a notice last month warning students that a man was spotted under a table at a campus library.
Authorities say a man matching that description was spotted on a scooter miles from the campus.
Officers attempted a traffic stop, but say the man identified as Juan fled and eventually crashed and was arrested.
The “foot lover” was charged with violation of sexual offender registration, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, aggravated assault and resisting without violence.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Megan Smith, 27, a Florida woman who clubbed her live-in boyfriend with … a pooper-scooper.
Smith and her man were reportedly arguing about “living arrangements” when things turned physical.
Police say that Smith “picked up the pooper-scooper and hit the victim in the face with it multiple times.”
The blows knocked her boyfriend’s glasses off his face and left him with multiple abrasions.
Smith was booked and released.
