Dude Tried to Rob Police Station to Get His Skateboard Back

KPTV – FOX 12

An Oregon man was busted trying to break into jail to get his skateboard back.

He was arrested for shoplifting earlier in the day, and the cops confiscated his board.

He came back that afternoon and tried to break into the station to get it back.

He started tugging on the main door and couldn’t get it to budge, so he put his legs up against the glass for extra leverage and pulled until the handle snapped.

He ended up walking out with the handle still in his hand.

Cops watched the video footage and knew who it was, so they went to his house and arrested him for attempted burglary.

WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

A naked man was found hanging out in a tree, in Alabama.

Cops and firefighters responded to the scene who were able to convince the man to come down after an hour.

Since he didn’t want to climb down, they used a bucket truck to get him.

He told the cops he was cleaning up the tree and wanted to make it his home.

The man was charged with public lewdness and disorderly conduct. Cops also said it was drug related, but wouldn’t elaborate.

Insane Dude B.A.S.E. Jumps Off Freedom Tower in NYC

How do you not scream “America!” before doing this?

The daredevils behind this stunt ended up turning themselves in after cops tracked them down.

“We just kind of walked in,” he says. “It’s supposed to be the most secure building in the world. God forbid it was somebody else getting in there with a real intention to harm New Yorkers.”

They were charged with with burglary, reckless endangerment, and jumping from a structure.  What did they burgle?  Freedom?
