TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Emily Wilson, 38, from Sangerville, Maine, who was arrested for domestic violence while wearing a t-shirt that said “Stop Domestic Violence.”
Wilson thought her husband was cheating on her, so she grabbed her gun and fired a shot into their bed.
He called 911 and the cops came and arrested her on two charges: Domestic violence assault, and domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.
It just so happened that she did all this while wearing a t-shirt at the time that said “Stop Domestic Violence.”
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Five Amish kids in Indiana, who got arrested after their minivan was clocked by police for doing 110 MPH in a 60 MPH zone.
As troopers drove to catch up to the van they could see alcoholic beverages being tossed out the windows.
Once they stopped the minivan, a search of the interior turned up numerous containers of alcohol including several cases of beer and a large bottle of whiskey.
The 17-year-old driver, who only had a learner’s permit, had been drinking as well.
Besides the driver, there were two girls, ages 16 and 17, and two 16-year-old boys.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Visitors to an art museum in San Francisco, who got duped into thinking that a pair of glasses on the floor was part of a new exhibit.
A 17-year-old boy and some friends placed a pair of glasses on the floor to document people’s reactions.
Within seconds, Khayatan said people started gathering around the “exhibit” to view it and take pictures.
After a while, more and more people started doing the same, so he decided to take pictures of them admiring his “art.”
Khayatan posted the pictures to Twitter and they quickly went viral, and have over 32,000 retweets and 36,000 likes to date.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Titonia Palamino, 23, who was arrested after she attacked employees with a selfie stick at a Florida Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
Customers and employees told police Palamino was yelling and waving the selfie stick when she walked into the business.
She was also carrying her two-year-old in the other hand.
Palamino denied being the aggressor and said she was swinging the stick in self-defense because she thought the employee was going to throw something at her.
According to employee and customer accounts, that wasn’t the case.
Customers told police they were concerned for the child, who was crying during the attack.
Palamino faces aggravated assault and child neglect charges.
She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and held on $5,000 bond.
