A Florida woman who had a coupon refused by her local Wal-Mart ended up in jail after trying to get a dollar off her purchase with another method – a loaded handgun.
Mary Frances Alday became enraged when a cashier informed her that store policy forced her to decline the coupon because it was printed off an online site. Alday allegedly started cursing out the employee, then struck her with a shopping cart before being escorted to the parking lot – where she told the manager, "I have something in my car for you."
Alday then pulled out a loaded .38 caliber revolver and sped off, only to be pulled over by cops who tried to disarm her. Alday refused, telling them, "You are not taking my gun", a statement that she soon found to be untrue.
She's currently awaiting trial on four counts of assault. (The Smoking Gun)
An Arkansas woman was busted for drunkenly driving two different vehicles – the car she crashed into a mobile home and the toy truck she swiped from a child who was riding in the RV she rammed.
Jamie Craft was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed when she rounded a corner and hit the mobile home, then exited her vehicle to scream at the other driver. Craft, who was described as intoxicated and not wearing any pants, grabbed the toy truck and tried to drive off in it after finding her own vehicle wouldn't re-start.
When cops tracked her down nearby at her mother's house, Craft was said to be so drunk that an officer had to steady her "so she wouldn't fall over." She was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage and driving with a suspended license. (KAIT)
A police dog in Massachusetts did a bang-up job when he went digging in a snowbank and dug up a gun that a suspect had hidden, pulling the trigger in the process!
The dog, whose name is Ivan, was called to the scene after a two-legged officer radioed for help when he heard gunshots, then saw a man toss the weapon from his vehicle. A bullet from the gun hit a nearby house, waking occupants inside, but no one was injured.
The incident resulted in the arrest of three men, but Ivan, who his handler described as "not friendly at all," didn't meet with the press to discuss the collar. (Lawrence Eagle-Tribune)
