A Japanese man downed a big gulp of regret after politely asking to rob a convenience store, then turning himself in to cops after being told "no way."
The man, whose name was not released, entered the Ogori City store in the wee hours of the morning and told the manager, “I’ve come with the intent to intimidate you and rob this store, may I ask you to please cooperate with me?” When told the robbery was not gonna happen, he made a U-turn and walked out quietly without swiping a single item.
Instead of going home to study his heist handbook, the hapless hoodlum went to a nearby police station and confessed what he'd done -- or tried to do. After searching the man, officers discovered a kitchen knife that he had never even pulled out during his polite exchange with the convenience store manager. The cops charged him for an attempted robbery. (Oddity Central)
A 22-year-old Florida man has failed to launch himself out of his mother's house, but he had no problem launching sausages at his mother's face.
Hermes Callijas-Gasperin did manage to get out of the house at least for a little while when he took a ride in the back of a police car. The unemployed freeloader was arrested after he threw sausages at his mother, who wasn't preparing his meal fast enough.
Police say he asked his mother for something to eat and she told him she'd get to it in a minute because she was busy. But the impatient mooch got angry and started pegging her was sausages, one of which struck her directly in the eye. He told cops a different story, saying that his mother bumped him while he was eating, and had she said "sorry," he wouldn't have thrown the sausages at her.
Cops arrested him for domestic battery and ordered him to stay 500 feet away from his mother. Chances are, his basement isn't that far away. (The Smoking Gun)
