Nitwit News – August 8

Matthew Oliver was named the “Fugitive of the Day” by the Pasco County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office; there was a warrant out for his arrest alleging he had robbed a friend. Deputies posted his mug shot on the sheriff’s Facebook page, and found one of the comments on the photo quite interesting: “Pasco County has nothing but fools investigating crimes for them that’s why these mix up happen.” Yep, Oliver commented below his own mug shot. Facebook automatically showed the post to Oliver’s friends, and they started piping in to say where he was hiding, and making fun of his photo. Oliver was arrested at a relative’s home.

In Tulsa, Oklahoma, a homeowner heard someone rooting around in his garage, so he bum-rushed him on his way out and tied his hands and feet behind his back. Then he went off to work, leaving the suspect on his lawn. The man’s wife said, “That’s just the type of person he is. ‘I got to take care of business, he’s safe, the police are coming, I got to go.'”

Police in Norfolk, Virginia, say Rhonney Jacobs was racing down a street when his neighbors flagged him down and asked him to watch out for kids playing nearby. Witnesses say Jacobs responded by pulling out a .45-caliber gun and aiming it at residents. Some reports suggest Jacobs may have physically engaged one of the neighbors, which in turn caused the gun to go off, striking Jacobs in his special place. He was rushed to a hospital for treatment and later arrested.
