Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A man who wanted to hurt his employer put rat poison in food.

55-year-old Ricky Lee Adami of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was charged with distributing food containing noxious/deleterious material.

The store manager, Gurol Bicer, said that he checked the cheese like he always does and found small black pellets in 3 containers. He checked surveillance videos inside the kitchen and saw his employee remove something from his pocket and sprinkle the contents into the cheese shredder machine.

Bicer called the police who arrested Adami and the substance was since identified as rat poison.

The manager threw away the cheese and everything else that Adami touched in the kitchen. He also informed the health department of the incident and they checked the restaurant and the kitchen. The health department allowed the business to remain open.

The manager said that the checked the security surveillance videos going back one month and he did not find any additional wrongdoing by the suspect.

According to Bicer, the suspect and the restaurant owner got into trouble with the work hours prior to the incident. He believes that may have set Adami off and led him to carry out the criminal act.

*----------------- Bad Monkey! -----------------*

A Florida Home Depot worker was repeatedly bitten and scratched by a spider monkey that escaped from its owner's car in the parking lot. The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to the Home Depot store Okeechobee on a report of a loose monkey. The sheriff's office said Tina Ballard, the primate's owner, said she left her pet in her truck while she went into the store. The spider monkey, which was wearing a leash, managed to escape from Ballard's vehicle and was spotted in the parking lot by Home Depot workers, including Marilyn Howard. "I reached down and she reached up and grabbed my hand, so gentle, so cute," Howard said she grabbed the monkey's leash and the animal climbed on her back, biting her twice. She said the monkey got off her and she again grabbed its leash, but it became spooked by the store's front door opening. The monkey climbed on Howard again, biting her arm and hand and scratching her face. Howard declined to be treated by paramedics at the scene, but said she would independently go to a doctor to be evaluated.


*---------------- Raise the Roof ----------------*

A Florida family woke up confused to the sounds of workers tearing the roof off their home -- and they weren't supposed to be there. Pearl Northrup said her family woke up to the loud banging of the roof being removed from the house. "Somebody is banging on my roof," Northrup said. "I thought I was getting a new roof." Northrup called her landlord, Sarah Fritchey, to ask why she wasn't warned about the project, and Fritchey revealed that no such work had been ordered. L.B. Skaggs, owner of roofing company NASTAR, said workers put the wrong address into their GPS. A Michigan man faced a more severe version of a similar situation when a demolition crew mistakenly tore his house down instead of a neighboring home that was slated to be demolished. Police told Mike Anderson, the owner of the incorrectly demolished house, that someone had taken the numbers from the house slated for demolition and nailed them to his home.

Lewis, the FBI agent was just stupid and should no longer be an FBI agent, nothing to do with gun control there. Second, the man was just defending his house, justified shooting. Gun Control would not have stopped the burglars from having guns and in that situation the homeowner and his friend would be the two dead people here. Just my two cents, thanks for the e-zine! -Gary

I wonder what goes on inside the stomach of that person who ate 480 oysters in 8 minutes... or what happened AFTER? Did they all stay down?
[Imagine eating 480 half-shells full of cold snot and try to answer the question yourself.]

I'd say the homeowner who shot and killed the home invaders who were shooting at his friend exercised great gun control. He did what he had to do and didn't harm anyone else in the process. As for the FBI agent, another reason to question if they are getting the best and brightest, or scraping the dirt under the barrel since in his case the bottom seems to have been worn through.

In all the westerns I've seen, it's the guy without the gun that has to 'dance'. This FBI agent is a fool to be carrying a loaded weapon and then engaging in that sort of behavior. Even if he is legally allowed to carry, he needs to be more responsible. I would suspend him if I were his boss. -Jerry

Wonder how many people have been saved by gun toten folks (I've heard it's many hundreds of thousands per year). Should we ban cars because people are killed by them? BTW: how'd it work out when we tried to ban alcohol via a Constitutional amendment? Just say'n.
[Hey, if it weren't for the 18th Amendment we wouldn't have some great movies? A decade of organized crime and thousands of lives lost or ruined is a small price to pay for art.]
