A Dad Tries to Discipline His Kid by Dressing as a Clown and Chasing Her, Then a Scared Neighbor Shoots at Him

I'm thinking this method of discipline isn't in ANY parenting books.

25-year-old Vernon Barrett Junior from Boardman, Ohio was having trouble with his six-year-old daughter.  He says she's been having behavior problems at school and at home.  So he decided to try to scare her straight on Saturday.

How?  By dressing up as a SCARY CLOWN and chasing her down the street.  But she had no idea it was him.  So as she ran down the street screaming, she ran into a random neighbor's apartment and begged for help because a clown was chasing her.

That neighbor is Dion Santiago.  He'd had a few beers and HE was scared of the clown outside too, so he grabbed his GUN and fired a few shots at him.  Fortunately they missed.

The cops eventually came and sorted everything out.  Vernon was charged with child endangerment and inducing panic, and Dion was arrested for using weapons while intoxicated.  They're both due in court today.  Stupid Criminals!!!  (Click here to see their mugshots)


Don’t Mess with Snakes

48-year-old Victor Pratt in Coolidge, Arizona was hosting his child's birthday party earlier this month when a rattlesnake showed up in the yard. 

Victor started showing off by GRABBING IT, so he could cook it on the grill.  But when he posed for pictures wrestling with the snake, he lost his grip on its head, and it BIT him twice.

He was rushed to the hospital, where he immediately got treatment, otherwise he would have died.  The treatment was so aggressive that Victor was BLACKED OUT in the hospital for five days.

Now he's home recovering, and he says he learned his lesson.  Quote, "Ain't gonna play with snakes no more."  Click here to see a few photos of him with the snake (and the aftermath in the hospital)
