TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO……
A man in New York allegedly snuck into Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s district office in Queens on Saturday and hid himself in a closet after spraying a fire extinguisher.
Charges for menacing, criminal trespass, and criminal mischief are pending for 31-year-old Douala Hashi, who was convinced to leave the utility closet by building security before the New York Police Department was contacted.
Hashi was reportedly holding a broken bottle after the extinguisher’s contents dissipated and was taken to the hospital by authorities for an evaluation. Ocasio-Cortez was not in the office at the time, according to police.
