Just a Plethora of Crazy CT Arrests This Week…
That’s it- The cold has finally turned Connecticut residents crazy. It was only a matter of time before people lost their minds. As I scanned the local news stations, I found one ridiculous arrest after another. There’s either a full moon (and we’ll all turn into zombies at midnight) or Connecticut has collectively given up on reason because it continues to be ten degrees outside.
Case 1: Goats.
Goats. Yes, goats. Sandra Brunoli, a 62-year-old woman from Southington (who FYI wins the prize for nuttiest mugshot of the day) was arrested after she allegedly stole goats from a local farm. She supposedly brought her two goats (male and female) to the farm this summer for safe keeping- but when the goats had three babies, she allegedly broke into the farm and stole all five goats claiming they were hers. The farm’s owner says that she gave him the goats- and she has stolen them.
Goats. They’re fighting over goats. Five goats.
Case 2: Suicide Over a Car Accident
Ever get into a fender bender and kill yourself? Of course not- Unless you’re this random unnamed Norwalk man. Police responded to a reported accident in Norwalk, one of the drivers reported minor back pain… the other was dead in their car from a self inflicted gunshot wound. Can you imagine being the guy with the back pain? That dude is complaining about whiplash but meanwhile the other guy is just dead. How sad and mad can you be about an accident that you just decide that’s the time to off yourself?
He must have been really, really cold.
Case 3: Double DUI
Well Norwalk has certainly had their hands full this week. One Norwalk officer already had a driver pulled over for a DUI- As he was giving the man his breathalyzer ANOTHER woman from Bridgeport rammed her car into his police cruiser. Yep, you guessed it- She was drunk too. Her blood alcohol level was more than twice the state legal limit. Two DUI’s for the price of one! Imagine how dumb that 22-year-old woman felt… She rammed INTO a cops car- while drunk… and he already had a guy with a DUI.
I’m sure it was four degrees out.
So, please- Weather Gods- If you’re out there, please bring us 40 degree days… It’s only a matter of time before our state, as a society, starts to just start killing each other…
Like this kid:
Case 4: Killing For a Car
A 17-year-old Waterbury High School student was arrested for allegedly strangling his mother to death. Apparently, she wouldn’t let him take the car.
Oh. My. God. There’s not enough therapy in the world that’s going to fix this terrible story.
