Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
Bryan Hathaway, 20, was arrested in Superior, Wis., and charged with molesting a deer carcass that he said had sexually aroused him when he saw it in a ditch. (Hathaway’s lawyer has raised the defense that the anti-bestiality law only applies to sex with live animals.)
Twice last fall, motorists were arrested for DUI after driving up to the security guard house at the nuclear power plant in Braidwood, Ill., by mistake. According to police, Lloyd Kuykendall, 38, drove up and handed the guard $1, thinking it was a highway toll booth, and 10 days later, Stanislaw Drobrzawski, 51, tried to align his car with the guard house, thinking it was a gas station pump.
In Des Moines, Iowa, customer Michelle Marie Engler, 45, was arrested for public intoxication at the Big Tomato Pizza restaurant after boisterously demanding to know why her food was taking so long. (An employee explained that she hadn’t ordered yet.)
