Nitwit News – August 5

A free-lance film crew shooting a scene in a Glendora, California, coffee shop gave unsuspecting citizens and cops a scare by using realistic looking fake weapons. Cops surrounded the shop, thinking they had a real-life armed robbery on their hands. The coffee-shop manager didn’t know he needed a film permit.

In San Diego an officer saw a vehicle swerving back and forth across freeway lanes at about 10:40 PM and thought it might be a drunken driver. The officer tried to pull over the driver, who kept going as more officers and a police helicopter joined the pursuit. When the driver took an exit police were able to get ahead of him and use a spike strip to blow his tires. After being taken into custody the man explained that he was just trying to get to the hospital where an ambulance had taken his pregnant wife. Police verified that paramedics had taken his wife to a hospital, and the man was released.

In Wales a man has been jailed for urinating on over $375 worth of Coca-Cola (at a Tesco). Store employees destroyed the soda after the incident. The man was taken to jail. He claimed his behavior is a bizarre side-effect of a new medication he’s taking.
