TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Joshua Fort, 26, a Florida man who attacked a Karaoke DJ because of a sound issue that occurred while he was singing.
Fort and a friend were singing the Jay Z song “Holy Grail,” when they started having issues with one of the microphones.
When Fort complained, the DJ took the mic away prompting Fort to yell, “You don’t know who I am, I own this place,” which he in-fact doesn’t.
Fort then slammed the guy’s laptop down and smashed a glass over his head.
The DJ needed several stitches behind his left ear, and Fort is facing charges for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Julius Njogu, 28, who was disqualified from a marathon in Kenya, when officials realized he wasn’t even sweating when he crossed the line in second place.
Njogu claimed second place in a sprint finish after breezing past another competitor in the final stretch of Kenya’s Nairobi International Marathon.
He was in line to claim around $7,000 in prize money, until officials learned he hid near the finish line and that was why he wasn’t sweating when he finished the race.
He was disqualified and now faces fraud charges.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Allie Carter, a 25-year-old woman in Indiana, who was injured when her dog named Trigger stepped on the trigger of her shotgun, and she took a shotgun blast to the foot.
Carter laid her shotgun on the ground during a hunt without first turning the safety on.
The dog accidentally stepped on the weapon, causing it to discharge and hitting Carter in the foot.
Fortunately the injuries were not serious and she was treated at the hospital and released.
The dog was not charged in the incident.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Damon Perry of Prewitt, New Mexico, who binge watched “The Walking Dead” and then killed a friend, because he thought he was turning into a zombie.
Perry and a friend were drinking and watching “The Walking Dead” when Perry became convinced that his buddy was turning into a zombie.
Paramedics say Perry beat his friend so badly that they couldn’t save the man’s life.
