Dumb Criminals: Would You Like Heroin With That Happy Meal?

PITTSBURGH (AP) — An employee of a McDonald's restaurant in Pittsburgh was charged Wednesday with selling heroin in Happy Meals to customers using the coded request "I'd like to order a toy."

Allegheny County authorities made the arrest after an informant told them that an employee was selling the drug at a McDonald's in the East Liberty section of the city.

Customers looking for heroin were instructed to go through the drive-thru and say, "I'd like to order a toy," said Mike Manko, spokesman for District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. The customer would then drive to the window, hand over the money and get a Happy Meal box containing heroin in exchange, Manko said.

Dumb Criminals: Tennessee Pizza Hut Employee Spits On Cops' Pizza

A Pizza Hut manager was arrested after she got caught spitting on a police officer's pizza.

Unicoi County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Jonathan Rogers arrived at his local Pizza Hut in Erwin, Tenn. to pick up a dinner order for his family. He grew suspicious of the transaction when the cashier rang him up without asking his name. According to a police report, Rogers sat down on a bench in front of the counter to wait for his order.

It was then that he observed Amanda Engle, 29, spitting on the pizza.

Rogers immediately confronted Engle and she confessed that she knew who he was because he had arrested her last year for a DUI.

Dumb Criminals: Oregon Shooting Suspect Accidentally Shoots Self In Testicles

One man from Tuesday night's downtown Portland shooting remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his leg, while the 40-year-old suspect is being treated for an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound to his testicles, police said Wednesday.

An apparent robbery attempt between the two men who were neighbors led to the shooting just before 8 p.m. in the parking lot of an apartment building in the 1400 block of Southwest Park Ave, police said.

During the dispute, the 40-year-old man pulled out a gun and shot the other man in the leg, police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said. The wounded 32-year-old man ran over to the Safeway on Southwest 10th Avenue and Columbia Street for help. He was later taken to the hospital with a leg injury.

As the suspect fled the scene, he accidentally shot himself in the groin, police said.

"The suspect's wound is consistent with somebody putting a gun in his pants," Simpson said Wednesday night.

Dumb Criminals: DUI Suspect Chokes The Chicken After Crashing Car Into Chicken Restaurant

On Monday morning at 10:30 a.m, a 34-year-old Pennsauken, New Jersey, man seemed to be feeling pretty good. According to police, he crashed his car into the Crown Fried Chicken at 5th and Lehigh in North Philadelphia and then disrobed.

An onlooker shot this video, which captures what the man does next. He was charged with a DUI. Why he wasn’t charged with indecent exposure or public lewdness is anyone’s guess. Though the video isn’t 100% clear as to the self-pleasuring activity, the man who shot the video tells me, “Oh, he was most definitely making himself feel happy.”

Dumb Criminals: Roswell Woman Calls 911 To Get Out Of Traffic Stop

Roswell police say while their officer was checking out the driver’s information, Jimenez was in the passenger seat calling 911.

Police say Jimenez later admitted to making the entire story up so the cop who pulled her over would rush to the Allsups and let her and her friends go.

According to reports, the officer knew something wasn’t right.

“The officer noticed that these three females in the vehicle were fidgety, acting kind of nervous and he saw one of them with a cellphone on her lap,” said Roswell Police Public Information Liaison Sabrina Morales.

Police say that’s when the officer asked dispatch to trace the call.

Dumb Criminals: MA Forestry Teacher Arrested Wearing Only Goggles And Ski Cap

WALPOLE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A teacher was arrested Wednesday for allegedly walking around his driveway wearing only a ski cap and goggles.

A woman passing by the Norfolk County Agricultural High School teacher's home in Walpole called police after seeing the 44-year-old exposing himself, officials say.

The woman reported the incident to police and told them that she saw Marc Mertz in his driveway wearing a ski cap, goggles and a towel. However, when she drove by the home a second time, he'd lost the towel.

A couple of hours later, another witness saw Mertz completely nude, and said he thrust his hips onto his mailbox as she drove by.

Trace Adkins Gets Into Fight With A Trace Adkins Impersonator On Cruise Ship

(TMZ) - Trace Adkins played a drunken game of country chest bump with his impersonator ... after ordering the guy to take off his f**king hat, TMZ reports.

TMZ got a hold of photos from the Jamaica-bound cruise ship where Trace went nuclear on his look-alike, Michael Larsen.


Witnesses tell TMZ ... Trace had been in the bar pounding shots ... and when he saw the impersonator he made a beeline for him.

Trace felt for a long time ... the impersonator had become like a stalker, following him around the country. So when the singer saw the guy on the ship, it was the straw that broke the camel's back.

The only way this could be better is if the Trace Adkins impersonator also checked into rehab.
