A Dallas-area man called 911 to report that another man had pulled a gun on him, but cops weren't terribly sympathetic - since the caller had rung them while he was trying to rob the guy with the weapon.
Christopher Lance Moore had broken into the man's house and began ransacking the place when the homeowner and his stepson woke up and walked in the scene, guns in hand. Moore tried to calmly excuse himself, and made it as far as his truck, which was parked in the driveway, but James Gerow ordered the younger man to shoot Moore if he tried to flee ... but "shoot him in the leg; you ain't gotta kill him."
Both sides then dialed the emergency number and summoned cops, who arrived and asked Moore what he was doing in the home, to which he only replied that he had "bad intentions." (Dallas Morning News)
A customer at a Pennsylvania McDonald's had a cow when he was served a cheeseburger instead of the hamburger he ordered – and ended up assaulting an employee who tried to defuse the situation.
The man, whose name was not released, unwrapped the cheeseburger and went burger berserk, throwing a high chair across the dining room and overturning a trash can before storming out. A woman who was on duty at the time followed him out to the parking lot to try to get his license plate number, but he attacked her, grabbing her phone and throwing it across the parking lot, before speeding off in his car.

Cops in New Mexico are looking into the delivery of an unusually high-caliber parcel of meat – which included a loaded handgun and seven rounds of ammunition.
The meat, which appears to have been packaged and frozen more than a year ago, originated at a plant in Colorado and was delivered to a supermarket last week. When an employee tore into the case to ready the ribs for sale, he found the semi-automatic tucked inside the frozen meat and quickly called cops – but not before accidentally wiping off whatever fingerprints might have been on the thing.
A police spokesman says "You hear of people finding frogs in their salad or weird stuff like that, but never heard of this one." (MSNBC)
