Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A good samaritan was shocked to get attacked by a shoplifter after he offered to pay for the stolen items, according to police in California.

Responding deputies have learned the suspect was stealing items from the 7-Eleven location when the victim offered to pay for the items. The suspect became upset, refused the victim's offer and a struggle ensued.

As the victim left the location, the suspect pulled out an ax and began to hit the victim in the head several times.

After the assault, the suspect fled the location and out of view of surveillance cameras.

The victim was transported to a hospital and treated for his injuries.

"This suspect should be considered armed and dangerous. If you believe you have seen the suspect, Do not make contact. Please call 9-1-1 or West Hollywood Station," police wrote.

Your Wife Is Cheating? Get indicted for Burglary

37-year-old Sean Donis of New Jersey, said that his wife Nancy, asked him to care for their son, now 5, while she went out for dinner with friends in Elizabeth. While watching his son, Donis was looking for his son's iPad. He activated the Find My iPhone app on the iPad, and he realized that it had traveled across Rockland County, New York. Donis decided to travel to the location as he had suspected Nancy of cheating and he wanted to catch her red-handed. Donis drove to the home of his wife's boss and found her vehicle parked in his driveway. The heartbroken husband walked into the home through an unlocked door and went to the upstairs bedroom. There he found his wife naked in bed with her boss. Nancy jumped out of the bed while her boss ordered Donis out of his home. He left armed with his 35 second video proof of her cheating. Nancy subsequently filed for divorce and the couple's 6-year marriage ended in February. Recently, Donis was notified that he was indicted by a grand jury on charges of unlawful surveillance and felony burglary over the cheating incident.

A New Jersey man was ordered to pay thousands of dollars in restitution to an airline over his drunken and disruptive behavior on a flight. James August was ordered to pay Hawaiian Airlines $97,817 after the flight was forced to return to the gate due to his bad behavior. He was also sentenced to three years probation. The ruling came after August pleaded guilty to interfering with flight crew members and flight attendants. The money will be taken out of August's paycheck. 10 percent of his gross income will be handed over each month to the airline until the restitution is paid in full. According to court records, August was traveling with his girlfriend and her three children from Honolulu to New York. He allegedly became abusive towards his girlfriend and her children. Two male flight attendants held him down while the captain turned back to the gate. The judge ordered August to reimburse the airline for costs it incurred when turning the plane around, including fuel, maintenance, ground crew and for passengers who had to catch other flights.

Lewis, most people who wave a gun around don't want to shoot people (the weekly death toll coming out of Chicago not withstanding), they just want to scare people. If that guy had walking into a martial arts school and just started shooting all the jiu-jitsu in the world wouldn't have helped them. Instead he went in there trying to scare people and got his ass handed to him. That MMA guy should consider himself lucky that he didn't encounter a real psychopath.
