Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A man called police after his wife stopped him from playing in the park with his buddies--with a handgun.
George Postell of Florida, said that he was playing dominoes with his friends at the park in High Springs. His wife approached the group of players, and told them get up and leave. The group of players complied with the irritated woman's demands.
George got up as well and he began walking away from his wife together with his friends.
44-year-old Twyla Postell was not happy with her husband's actions, and according to witnesses, she pulled out a gun and shot in his direction.
Thankfully, she did not aim well and missed her husband. Police were called and Twyla was arrested. Twyla denied the claim that she fired a shot. She said that the sound came from kids' fireworks.
When police did not believe her over eyewitnesses, Twyla said that she is on probation for battery and that she "wouldn't do anything to mess that up," according to police.
Twyla was booked into the Alachua County Jail, on a charge of domestic violence and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.

*--- Naked Skydiver Plays Violin: Australia ---*
An Australian man celebrated his 30th birthday by skydiving naked while playing a violin to promote male body image. Musician Glen Donnelly leapt from a plane over New South Wales in hopes of raising a total of $15,000 for a trio of charities related to mental health and body image. "I'm being a real man by sharing the struggles that have plagued my life for ten years," Donnely wrote on the GoFundMe page. Donnelly completed the tandem jump wearing nothing but a harness as he played "Happy Birthday" for himself on the $50 violin. Donnelly compared his nerves prior to the nude skydiving stunt to the anxiety he felt dealing with his body dysmorphic disorder. In the two days following Donnelly's jump he was able to raise nearly $3,500 of his $15,000 goal.
*-- The Wheels On The Bus Go 'Round and 'Round --*
A man who wanted a ride to Florida, stole a school bus and led police in a high-speed chase, according to police in Alabama. Blount County Sheriff's Office notified the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office of a school bus that had been stolen in their jurisdiction. The description of the bus was given and the suspect was described as a white male. At approximately 8:00 a.m., Jefferson County Deputies in the Bessemer Division came into contact with the stolen bus and attempted to get the vehicle to stop. The driver refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. Deputies along with several other law enforcement agencies continued to follow the bus throughout the Birmingham area. The bus finally came to a stop after an Alabama State Trooper vehicle was hit as the trooper was attempting to deploy stop sticks. He then threw two guns out of the bus. The driver told police that his friends were taking him to Florida, when he got into a fight with them. He was kicked out of the car in Alabama, then decided to steal the school bus to drive himself to Florida.

If you need money that badly that you have to steal an ATM with a forklift, why not just sell the forklift? Because you want the money AND the forklift.
