Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A rapper was left with severe injuries to his leg after he was allegedly seen on video shooting himself in the leg before opening fire on a crowd of people.

However, the aspiring rapper is now suing the Irving Plaza Concert Hall in New York, for allowing guns into their venue.

Roland Collins, 30, who goes by the stage name Troy Ave, was arrested on charges of possession of a firearm and attempted murder over the shooting that took place in the backstage VIP, where the night's performers were seated.

He is free on $500,000 bail.

Collins, who was shot in the legs during the fight, claims that he is the victim, and is now suing the venue for not patting down people to check them for weapons before allowing them to enter the venue through a side door.

The video that allegedly shows Collins firing the gun that night, was uploaded to the Internet. In the video, Collins appears to have accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Despite video evidence, the rapper and his lawyer, Scott Leemon, maintain that he did not bring a firearm into the venue.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

*-- Daredevils Get an Eiffel of the Parasites --*

A pair of daredevils skipped the elevators at the Eiffel Tower in Paris and climbed to the top of the structure while filming their ascent. The video, posted to YouTube, shows the two men purchase tickets to visit the Eiffel Tower at night while it is illuminated and sneak away from the other tourists to climb the structure's stairs. The men dodge CCTV cameras and security officers before moving from the stairs to the steel girders to make their way to near the top of the tower. A drone helped film the men as they approached the dizzying heights of the tower's summit. The uploader said the video was filmed in June amid high winds that made piloting the drone difficult. "The poor drone operator not only crashed the drone but also received a pretty big fine," the post said. British daredevil James Kingston climbed the Eiffel Tower in November of last year and were arrested when they were discovered by security. Kingston said he was released without charges when he promised not to try to climb the tower again for at least three years.

*------------ Caterer Gets the Chair ------------*

A bride's big day ended in tragedy when her caterer was stabbed to death over a few chairs. 36-year-old Tyonne Domonique Johns, who is also known to many as chef Tyonne, was asked to cater an outdoor wedding at a park in Virginia, and she agreed. The wedding was held at the Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Chantilly. At the end the event, Johns cleaned up the area. Meanwhile, government employee Kempton Bonds, 19, who was waiting to lock up the park, noticed Johns placing folding chairs, which he believed belonged to the park, into her truck. Bonds confronted Johns, and the two got into an argument over the ownership of the chairs. Police are still trying to figure out what happened next and what prompted Bonds to pull out a three-inch folding knife and stab the woman to death. Bonds was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He was fired from the park, pending the outcome of the investigation.




*-------------- READER COMMENTS --------------*

So an 18-year-old kid actually got personal information on Hooters waitresses just by telling people he was an undercover cop? How gullible are people? It reminds me of the story of those fast food morons who busted out their store windows because some asshole called them up and told them, OVER THE PHONE, that there was a gas leak in their building. Some people shouldn't be let outdoors without a leash, much less given jobs with any kind of responsibility.
[Sounds like you're more of a 'sheep deserve to be fleeced' kind of guy.]


Hey Lewis, call me a pessimist, but I kind of hope some jerkoff dentist would drop a probe or something down my throat so I could collect 6 figures. Sometimes, when I'm driving down the street and I see a new lexus or a mercedes coming, I say a little prayer that the driver would plow into me, especially if they've had a couple. Am I pathetic or do other people have these little fantasies?
[Pathetic, maybe, but I think a better description would be unambitious. I think you'd get a lot more from a commercial vehicle. A drunk UPS or FedEx driver, maybe.]
