Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A Texas police officer responded to an unusual plea for help when a Good Samaritan called 911 to report someone slipped a note through the receipt slot of an ATM, saying they were trapped inside.

The incident happened at a Bank of America branch in Corpus Christi.

Officer Richard OIden arrived at the scene after the repairman had pushed out handwritten notes that read: "Please help. I'm stuck in here, and I don't have my phone. Please call my boss."

At first, Olden said he thought someone was playing a prank. Then he heard a faint voice coming from behind the machine and realized someone was actually inside.

The repairman, who was not identified, had gone inside the room housing the ATM to fix a broken lock on the door. Unfortunately, the lock got the better of the worker and he'd left his cellphone in his truck, rendering him helpless.

The man had apparently put several notes through the machine, though previous customers either didn't notice them or thought they were a joke.

When police realized what had happened, they kicked open the door to the security room, freeing the man inside.

When It Comes to Prostitutes, It Doesn't Pay to be Cheap

A man who wanted to have sex with a prostitute, tried to avoid paying for a hotel room by sneaking into a football stadium, according to police in Louisiana. The Louisiana State University Police Department said that they have arrested 36-year-old Lucien Hamilton of Brusly, after being caught outside the Tiger Stadium with his hired prostitute. Security at the football stadium noticed the man and the woman climbing a ladder that leads into the facility. When questioned, Hamilton allegedly admitted to hiring the female prostitute. Instead of paying for a hotel room, Hamilton decided to save money by having sex inside the empty stadium. However, his plan backfired, and he will now have to come up with money to pay for his legal bills.

Police are looking to arrest a man who urinated on a woman while riding on a train, according to police in New York. The New York Police Department said that the suspect took advantage of the 26-year-old victim who was listening to music with her eyes shut while traveling in the Manhattan bound J train. The incident unfolded shortly after the train left the 75th Street–Elderts Lane station. The 26-year-old woman decided to relax and listen to music. She closed her eyes for a few minutes, until she felt something hitting her face. When she opened her eyes, the woman saw the man standing next to her and urinating on her face. The suspect then fled at the Cypress Hills station in Brooklyn.

Hey Lewis, the job of the police is to serve the public. The guy wanted to set himself on fire. All they did was help him out.

Is our infrastructure really so fragile that a stupid snake can take out an entire electrical substation? What if the terrorists get ahold of this technology? Can you imagine thousands, tens of thousands of weaponized snakes slithering into substations all over the country? We'd be paralysed. Somebody has to do something about this.
