Nitwit News – September 19

A bank customer who spotted a man with a concealed weapon inside a bank in Glastonbury, Connecticut, thought he was doing the right thing by bringing the bank staff’s attention to a potential robbery in progress. Instead, Robert Gursky ended up being arrested for breach of peace after he was mistaken for a robber himself. Gursky was inside the bank when he noticed the man with the concealed gun. Sensing imminent danger, Gursky approached the teller and said the word “gun.” Feeling his warning was not getting through, Gursky began writing a note to explain the situation. But before his message was properly conveyed, one of the tellers triggered the panic alarm — on him. Police arrived on the scene and determined that the suspicious man was a law enforcement official who was permitted to carry a concealed weapon.

BBC broadcaster Simon McCoy went viral Wednesday for delivering the news while holding a refill pack of printer paper instead of his iPad. A spokesperson for the BBC explained: “Simon McCoy was preparing to introduce this story, instead of picking up his tablet to hold as he went to air, he mistakenly picked up a ream of paper that was sitting next to it. In the rush of live news, he didn’t have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it.”
