This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at the case of a cheerleading torturer who seems like something out of a movie. Then, we examine how not one but three drunk drivers can all cause the same accident. Finally, we look at alternative uses for pickles.
Follow the jump to learn more about this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe!
Fear the Cheer
Now, like any self-respecting tween in the 90s, I have watched my fair share of competitive cheerleading movies. But I never expected that those movies were based in a disturbing reality.
Enter Raffaela Spone, who really, really, REALLY wanted her daughter to be the head cheerleader in the squad at her school. So much so, that the woman spent time learning video and photo editing skills online, to create deep fake videos featuring the other cheerleaders. She then sent the videos to the school, in an attempt to get the girls kicked off the team. And she allegedly also sent them to the students themselves, suggesting they quit or kill themselves.
Fortunately, it seems to have backfired as the mom was caught and arrested. She is now facing numerous harassment-related charges.
One Drunk Driver, Two Drunk Drivers, Three Drunk Drivers ah-ha-ha
Sure, one drunk driving crashing into something is usually not enough to get on this blog. Indeed, even two drunk drivers crashing into each other is not nearly hilarious enough to warrant a feature here. Sure, it’s funny. But it’s not weird and wacky funny.
But what if I told you I found a case of three drunk drivers all being involved in the same accident?
You want to know more, right?
In the early morning hours of one Wisconsin morning, two drunk drivers were travelling down opposite sides of the highway. One left his lane of travel, and crashed into the other, causing a head-on collision. Due to the nature of the collision, there was a good deal of debris and smashed cars in the roadway. Which, of course, a sober driver might notice.
But along came a third drunk driver, who crashed into the original accident making the two-car collision a three-car pile up.
Oh, Flordia. A location where only the strangest incidents happen. Like this case, where a man was arrested for peeping in a window and pleasuring himself with a pickle, penis in hand.
Let me explain: police found a man hiding behind a townhouse complex, peering in the window, and with one hand down his underwear, penis firmly in hand. In the other hand, the man had a gigantic uneaten pickle, which he was using as a makeshift dildo, to pleasure himself.
I have so many questions about the impact of the vinegar, but let’s just leave it with the fact that the police were a little salty about it. Although the man did not feel he had done anything wrong, the police definitely thought that it was a big dill.
