Thursday in the News

Here’s a new category that I thought you might get a kick out of.  Each Thursday I’ll write about a bizarre news story that took place in my local area (Washington State) and you counter that news with a story from your state!

Here’s a story that you just have to scratch your head and say, “Huh?”

A couple months ago, at approximately 11:30 pm, a Seattle area man woke up his six and four year old daughters, put them in the backseat of the car, and told them they were taking a trip to The Dollar Store for some toys.

Driving at a high rate of speed – and hopped up on meth – he proceeded to hit a few cars along the way on one of the main North/South freeways, I-5.  When his car finally came to a stop, having crashed into a barrier, other drivers pulled over to provide help.  Seeing that two young girls were in the back seat, those who came to the assist yelled at the driver to unlock the doors.  The driver initially refused.  When he finally allowed access to the vehicle, the girls were removed, and although they had several seat belt bruises across their torsos, they appeared to be okay.

When the Good Samaritans gained access to the driver’s side of the vehicle in an effort to help the methed out driver, they discovered he was wearing a woman’s blouse with prosthetic breasts strapped to his chest.  Oh, one other detail: he was naked from the waist down, and had a full bag of urine at his feet.

He is being held on $250,000 bail.  His arraignment hearing is scheduled for July 1st.

How about news in your neck of the woods?  Anything even half as unbelievable occur near you?  The news story you submit doesn’t have to be icky like the one I provided, it can be too stupid to believe as well – as a matter of fact, that’s preferred.
