TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Dominyk Antonio Alfonseca, 23, who was arrested after he posted videos and pictures from a bank he robbed on Instagram.
Virginia Beach Police say Alfonseca walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money.
After receiving a bag, he left the bank and posted two videos of the robbery and one picture of the note to his Instagram account.
This all happened in a span of 20 minutes because police arrested him 20 minutes after the robbery.
At his sentencing, Alfonseca apologized to the bank, the teller and his family, saying “he wasn’t in the right mental state and was only looking to gain followers.”
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Zayma Flores, who burned her 15-year-old son’s hands after he sold her stash of pot.
Flores’s husband told her that he believed his 15-year-old stepson had removed their pot and gave it to a friend.
Mom responded by burning him with a lighter, a punishment that resulted in her arrest on a felony child abuse charge (and the removal of her children from the family’s residence).
According to an arrest affidavit, the boy suffered burns to his palms after “putting his hands on the kitchen stove.”
The teen believed that the marijuana was his sister’s and that he decided to take the pot so that she “would not use it.”
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Iesha Davis, 36, who flipped out at a Massachusetts restaurant when she found out it cost more to add an extra topping to her pizza.
The store manager says Davis walked in, pointed at a pizza sign and demanded the $17.99 deal with chicken on top.
However, an employee told her that it would be more money if she added chicken.
Davis allegedly picked up the metal pizza sign and threw it, striking an 11-year-old girl, in the face.
Police charged Davis with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (metal pizza sign).
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Nicholas Scott Wilkey, 24, who drove his SUV onto a packed Boca Raton beach in search of a lost can of tobacco.

Wilkey, who was driving on a suspended license showed no remorse when told that he endangered the lives of beach goers.
He was arrested for reckless driving, operating a vehicle on a coastal beach, and having a suspended license with knowledge.
