News of the Weird

Okay, I'm not one to poke fun at my fellow Kentuckians. I love the Big Blue Nation and all the crazy characters throughout our great commonwealth. And, I certainly don't want to contribute to any negative stereotypes about Kentucky. But, I just had share this story that appeared on the local news yesterday. There are so many aspects to this story that made me laugh out loud and shake my head.

Folks, you can't make this stuff up.

LETCHER COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A naked man was arrested inside an eastern Kentucky supermarket after police found him covered in peanut butter and chocolate.

It happened January 31 at a Food World IGA in Letcher County, KY, which borders Virginia.

According to a court citation, 22-year-old Andrew Toothman was wearing only a pair of black boots.

Troopers said the store's front door was broken and that several fire extinguishers had been discharged.

Toothman appeared to be contrite. Investigators said he spelled the word "sorry" on the floor with Nyquil.

Toothman admitted breaking into the store. He was charged with burglary, criminal mischief and indecent exposure.

WOW! That's too funny! I'm glad he didn't hurt anyone, but he doesn't sound violent. In Detroit, we rarely get funny stories like this one, so i appreciate you sharing a good laugh!
