TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
A 25-year-old Ontario, Canada man, who fell out of his car while driving drunk and ran over his own leg.
Police say the man was driving home from a bar when he left the door open and fell out of the driver’s seat.
The vehicle then ran over his leg before hitting two mailbox posts.
The man was treated in a hospital, released, and then charged with impaired driving and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
A 12-year-old girl in New Jersey, who was arrested after she thought it would be fun to pose as a clown on Instagram and threaten to attack a school.
Using the Instagram handle “Killerclownfromnj,” she warned of visiting a middle school in Toms River, NJ on a poster that contained a series of emojis implying violence.
Investigators concluded that the “ill-conceived hoax” posed no “credible threat to students.”
Cybercrime investigators arrested the child on a third-degree count of causing false public alarm.
The student is also facing disciplinary action levied by school officials.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Nicholas Melice Jr., 19, who got into a fight with his father Nicholas Melice Sr., 46, because dad threw out his Legos.
Police say the son went to visit his parents in Jupiter, Florida and while he was there he learned his father had thrown away his Legos.
The son started yelling at his dad and then it turned physical.
They shoved and punched and scratched each other until the cops got there.
Both father and son wanted to press charges, so they were both booked on misdemeanor battery charges.
