WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1066)



HE HAD JAIL-ABLE HEALTH ISSUES
Alan Knight, 47, of Swansea, South Wales, took it upon himself to care for his elderly neighbor, Ivor Richards, and while doing that syphoned £41,570 from the pensioner’s accounts. To avoid prosecution, Knight claimed to be quadriplegic and pretended to have seizures that left him comatose. He collected disability payments with the help of his wife, Helen, who said she had to care for him after he snapped his neck in a fall. Even when video caught him walking in a Tesco supermarket and driving, Knight avoided charges twice by checking into a hospital.

GOOD THING HE WASN’T “NEEDY”
Tyler Sullivan, 26, of Haddam, Conn., awoke in bed with a man he’d never met. What woke him was the stranger’s screams “Get out of my bed!” After Sullivan refused, a 911 call got him arrested. His only excuse, being drunk and thinking he’d entered his mother’s apartment ...and his own bed.  (http://abcnews.go.com/Weird/wireStory/man-wakes-find-stranger-bed-26466856)
NO MOTIVE, NO REASON WHY
Police in Minneapolis arrested Nicholas Mullenmaster, 38, for entering several restaurants’ restrooms and pouring two to three pounds of nails down their commodes to clog the toilets. This required paying plumbers up to $1,000 each to unclog these drains. While Mullenmaster claims he’s innocent, surveillance video shows otherwise.
