TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Fred Smith, 82, a Tampa Bay man who slashed the tires of the 88-year-old woman who took his favorite bingo seat.
Police say that Smith informed the woman it was his usual seat, but she refused to move.
So he stormed out of the bingo hall in his retirement community and slashed her tires with an ice pick.
A surveillance camera caught him and he was arrested for criminal mischief.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Melissa Kidd, 34, a Virginia high school teacher who showed her students the before and after pictures of her boob job on her cell phone.
Three students disclosed that Kidd “showed them before and after photographs, which displayed her nude and exposed breasts.”
School officials placed Kidd on administrative leave without pay.
Within weeks, Kidd resigned her post at the high school.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Randy Llanes, 47, a Hawaii man who died after he was impaled by the swordfish he was trying to catch.
Witnesses said Llanes shot at the fish with a spear gun and then jumped from the pier in an apparent attempt to catch it.
His body resurfaced moments later.
Fire chief John Whitman said this isn’t the first time he’s heard of a swordfish fatally impaling someone.
Whitman estimates the fish was about 30 pounds and had a bill up to a foot long.
