Nitwit News – January 15

A woman in Spokane, Washington, says she’s had a number of run-ins with her 32-year-old neighbor, including threats that he was going to burn down her home. She called 911 when he appeared at her door with a gun in his hand, trying to kick his way in. When officers arrived, he ran back into his own house, which was quickly surrounded. Officers tried for over an hour to get him to reply to their attempts to communicate, but he didn’t respond to a bullhorn or phone calls. Then, officers saw the guy climb out his bedroom window and onto his icy roof. From there, he subjected officers to a barrage of taunts, saying he was ready to fight them, but the barrage didn’t last long: he slipped and fell off the roof.

A teller at a bank in Antioch, California, had to get her manager to help with a customer’s note — the handwriting was so poor she couldn’t read it herself. The customer lacked the patience to wait for the clerk and manager to discuss the situation; he left, apparently before the bank employees figured out it was a robbery note. When they did figure it out, they summoned the police. Later, responding to a call about an unwanted guest at a nearby shopping mall, police arrested a man fitting the robber’s description.
