TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Two armed robbers, who tried to rob a McDonald’s in France while 11 members of an elite Special Forces team were dining.
The 11 were all off-duty, but armed, and they actually specialize in hostage situations.
They waited for the two guys to leave before they sprang into action.
One robber was arrested when he tripped on some stairs.
The other guy raised his gun like he was going to shoot, so one of the special forces shot him in the stomach.
He was taken to a hospital and was treated, and both guys are facing charges for armed robbery.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
An unidentified 29-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, who ran out on a $135 restaurant bill and left their 10-year-old daughter behind.
The manager of the restaurant told police the couple ran up a tab of about $135 with food and drinks, then bolted, leaving their 10-year-old daughter behind inside the restaurant.
Officers tracked down the intoxicated couple nearby, and were taken into custody.
The 10-year-old girl is now in the custody of Child and Family Services.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Kayla Kathleen Martin-Weliwita, 36, who faces child endangerment charges after she had her kids blow into her vehicle’s ignition-interlock device so she could drive her car while drunk.
Police officers responded to reports of a woman fighting with her daughter in a restaurant parking lot around midnight.
Police say Martin-Weliwita smelled of alcohol and told police she was fighting with her daughter because the daughter was trying to run away.
The woman’s daughters, ages 13 and 9, both told police that she had tried to make them blow into the ignition-interlock device.
A manager at the restaurant told police Martin-Weliwita had also asked servers to blow into the device.
Martin-Weliwita was arrested on public intoxication, child neglect, and child abuse charges.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Jack Means, 57, who called 911 with what he deemed was an emergency… he’d run out of vodka.
He told the 911 dispatcher he ran out of vodka and his girlfriend wouldn’t go buy him more.
So two Collier County, Florida police officers came to his place, and arrested him for misusing 911.
