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

February 14, 2020

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’.

The first story is Robert Shull Goddard, 49-years-old. He broke into a house on Jan. 29th by smashing the glass on the back door, then stole a television and firearm. But, as he was leaving he dropped a little notebook. It listed multiple addresses in it. One of those was for another home a few miles away that had been burglarized that same day. Also, the notebook contained clues to the burglar's identity, notes from his daughter and her address. So he left that behind and he dumb.

In Wichita Falls police arrested a woman Friday for five warrants including allegedly giving officers a fictitious name during a traffic stop. The fake name the suspect provided also had an arrest warrant. Just after 9 p.m., Wednesday, officers saw a car failing to use a turn signal. After the vehicle was pulled over, the cops saw a baggie of weed tossed out of the window. After the vehicle was stopped, both the driver and passenger were detained. The passenger, later identified as Shareeka Strawn, 28, told officers that her name was Porshala Strawn. A records check revealed that Porshala Shawn had an outstanding warrant for her arrest. Then she came clean and said her real name was Shareeka Strawn.

An EasyJet flight was forced to make an emergency landing after a drunk man ate his phone. A British man is facing jail after harassing crew and passengers onboard a flight and eating his mobile phone, causing the plane to be diverted. Matthew Flaherty was on a flight from Manchester to Iceland when he began swigging from a gin bottle he had smuggled onboard. Not long after, the drunk man from Cheshire started harassing fellow passengers and cabin crew. Once those in the cockpit were told of the situation, they locked the cockpit door and diverted the flight, carrying six crew and 142 passengers, to Edinburgh, Scotland. Flaherty was told by the crew to sit down and behave. He ignored them, then started eating the electrical parts of his mobile phone - even chewing out the battery. The battery started smoldering, so a cabin crew member ran over and put the device in a cup of water to prevent a fire. He must have been starving.
