This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at a woman who uses my favourite excuse ever. Then, we examine why a man in Florida would drive around with a gun sticking out his window. Finally, we look at my favourite criminal nickname of all time.
Follow the jump to learn more about this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe.
The Dog Did It
Sure, we’ve all blamed a fart on the dog. Or blamed the dog for destroying our homework or our couch. But most of us have not blamed the dog in a case where we were supposedly involved in a motor vehicle accident.
And yet, Comox Valley RCMP recently dealt with a woman who attempted to provide an explanation for her car accident: the dog was driving. I mean… if the dog was driving then it makes sense why there was an accident and how the car ended up in the ditch. The little doggy paws couldn’t reach the pedals!
Some Crazy Stuff
Now, normally an AR-15 is no laughing matter. But this smartass from Florida has made me giggle even though a heavy duty weapon is involved.
Apparently, while allegedly driving drunk, a Florida man pointed an AR-15 at another driver, while driving around with the barrel of the firearm pointing out the window. When police responded to the complaint and spoke with the man, he explained that the reason he had the gun sticking out the window was because he had “seen some crazy stuff since moving to Florida.”
Little did he know he was going to become a part of the crazy stuff that happens in Florida.
Best Criminal Nickname
It’s rare that we get to see cases of criminals with exciting and fun nicknames. But this guy, well, not only did he get a nickname based on his crimes, he earned it.
Bud Light Mike has, since 2016, amassed a lengthy list of convictions. Each conviction follows a simple pattern: Mike attempts to obtain Bud Light that he does not pay for. Repeatedly, he has been busted for walking out of stores, bars, and beaches after consuming Bud Light. And his most recent charge involves yet another Bud Light theft allegation.
