Kevin & Bean’s: People Are Dumb

If There's One Thing We Know, It's People Are Dumb

October 8, 2019

Kevin searches far and wide to find some of the funniest and craziest stories about people who just aren’t thinking as clearly as they should be. They usually get in trouble for what they do and it makes headlines in the news. When that happens, we find the best of the best and bring you a little something we like to call, ‘People Are Dumb’.

A man drinks 7 beers before turning himself in. Billy Bob Hall from Weatherford, TX he told police he had to “drink to build up the courage to turn himself in.” When he turned himself in they told him there was no warrant out for his arrest. Aside from the fact that he was drunk, there was no reason to arrest him. However, he was arrested for public intoxication because he was a danger to himself or others.

On Sunday morning, sheriff’s deputies saw a pair of Amish men drinking a 12-pack of Michelob Ultra as they rode in a horse and buggy. Deputies tried to pull over the buggy, but the men inside jumped out and the horse kept going. A stereo system was found in the buggy, (these were not very good Amish people) along with several beer bottles. The men are still at large, the buggy was towed and the horse is being cared for until it is claimed. Sounds like these guys are living in the Amish Paradise (File).

A Phoenix AZ man shoots himself in the face trying to quiet down neighbors. A man accused of shooting at his ceiling to get neighbors above him to quiet down shot himself in the face instead on Sunday night and was hospitalized in critical condition. Sgt. Vince Lewis said, the man at about midnight “had banged on the (neighbors’) door, yelling at them, trying to make contact during this argument,” but no one answered. The man then went back to his apartment and reportedly fired several shots into the ceiling. Police are still investigating how he ended up with a bullet in his face.

A Man finds a burglar in the shower in Trenton NJ. Peter Fields realized something was wrong when he came home and found his door broken on Saturday. As he walked inside his home, he said he heard his shower running, and couldn't believe what he saw. “I went in the house, I noticed someone smashed the alarm system off the wall and he was in the shower, the man was in the shower." The thief also had some clothes picked out to take, and they were laid out on the bed. He had also taken some alcohol, some of his best whiskey. Fields called the police and was making sure the thief didn’t getaway. The police got there relatively quickly and arrested him while still taking a shower.

And finally, police say a murder plot was derailed by a butt dial. The target of the alleged hit found out about the plot after he was butt-dialed and overheard the conversation. The target was able to listen to details and the information about the plot to kill him. He also heard a previous attempt to have him killed, but it was unsuccessful. He called the police to report it and when the police arrived the call had been going on for an hour and a half. The actual call was 45 min. but the line was active for over an hour. The target went to the police Dept. to file a report. When he got back home he reported that his home had been burglarized and his gas stove had been tampered with. The motive for attempting to kill the target was because money was owed to him and if he was gone he wouldn’t have to pay him.
