About the Author
Read an Excerpt
With 24-7 news, Facebook, Twitter, and more, we’ve all become a bit obsessed with (and perhaps tired of) giggling babies, ticklish animals, celebrity wardrobe malfunctions, and oddballs committing stupid crimes. So consider yourself lucky that I spent days and days combing the interwebs for the ridiculous crime stories you haven’t heard a thousand times or heard about a thousand different criminals committing. Because really, how bizarre is it if everybody’s doing it? So, cow tipping, which is so last century, is out. However, tipping fiberglass art cows is totally now.
The Young and the Lawless
A Covington, Louisiana, man arrived home one day to find three young children burglarizing his house. How young? Two of the suspects were six and the other was three. They made off with two hammers, a box of fudge, a Candy Land game, some money, cigarettes, and a jar of vegetables. Police officers arrived at the scene to find the children playing across the street. When they approached, one of the six-year-olds pulled out what looked like a handgun and placed it on the ground. (It turned out to be a BB gun, but still . . .)
The boys were too young to be arrested; however, their mother could face charges. She wasn’t home at the time of the crime. She was attending a parenting class. (Perhaps she can get a refund.)
