News of the Weird
Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
Jeremy Lyons, 20, was arrested in Hanover Township, Pa., for an alleged vandalism spree, bashing car windows with a baseball bat. A local TV station had carried a story of the arrest of another person, and Lyons for some reason called the station and, laughing, told them they had the wrong man. He was arrested when the call was traced.
The following uncoordinated people accidentally shot themselves recently, having chosen to carry their guns not in a holster but in the waistbands of their pants:
–Manranzana Grimes, 16 (Canton, Ohio) (shot himself in the leg); –A 23-year-old man (Wichita, Kan.) (shot himself in the testicles); –Gregory Quinn, 49 (Lewistown, Pa.) (in the leg when removing his gun while driving); — Evando Minor (Baltimore,) (in the genitals while drawing his gun to rob a taxi driver).
