TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Angela Kipp, 35, an Indiana woman who jumped out of her moving car because she saw a spider, and left her nine-year-old behind in the back seat.
Kipp told police she was backing out of her driveway when she saw a spider on her shoulder and jumped out without putting the car in park.
Her son immediately climbed into the front seat and tried to stop the car.
Unfortunately, he hit the gas instead of the brake the car sped up, backed into the road and slammed into a school bus that was driving by.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Christopher John Smith, 38, a Daytona Beach man who showed up to meet his probation officer with a gun and a stolen car.
Smith arrived to the meeting in a Ford Focus that his probation officer had never seen before.
When asked where he had rented the vehicle, Smith said he didn’t know.
A deputy then ran the vehicle’s info and found that it was stolen.
As Smith was being booked he was also found to be carrying a stolen gun.
He was arrested on a variety of charges including Grand Theft Auto.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Jason Tackett, 38, a Florida man who assaulted his girlfriend and trashed her house, because he caught her reading her ex-boyfriend’s obituary.
The girlfriend told police that Tackett had demanded to see what she was looking at on her phone but she wouldn’t show him.
So he grabbed it from her, and found out she was reading something about her ex, and he flipped out.
He then started trashing her house and even tried to suffocate her.
She managed to get away, and got a neighbor to call 911.
He’s facing charges for domestic battery by strangulation.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Christopher Johnson, 46, who was arrested for trying to “get it on” with a playground slide in England.
Four different people saw him grinding on it, and at least one called the cops.
Here’s the real odd thing; he was arrested for the same thing last year.
A judge in England ordered him to pay about $600 in fines and court costs, do 18 months of counseling, and he’s not allowed to go anywhere that has a slide for the next three years.
