Different Kind of Cut-Off: Man Leading Police Chase Severed His Penis


A southern man was arrested recently after slicing someone’s genitals — his own.

Perhaps it was a case of too much Tennessee Whiskey, but 39-year-old Tyson Gilbert of Cookeville made a very bold choice.

iu


On the morning of August 26th, he led law enforcement on a two-county pedal-to-the-metal parade.

As reported by Smithville’s WJLE, State Trooper Bobby Johnson spotted Tyson’s car in a roadway illegally parked.

Hence, he pulled up behind and turned on his lights.

The Honda Accord took off and, in the officer’s words, “refused to stop.”

Tearin’ up Highway 70, Tyson raced from Dowelltown to Lebanon.

According to Bobby, the on-the-lam outlaw was “all over the road the whole time.”

In light of the maniacal motoring, Alexandria Police plotted an impediment — a strip of spikes was set.

Though one of Tyson’s tires got torn, he continued westbound into Wilson County.

Tennessee Highway Patrol laid a second set of spikes, taking another tire.

Just past Watertown, Wilson County Sheriff’s Department attempted a spiking but missed.

Still, the Accord was eventually ruined and running on rims.

The chase — also involving officers from Nashville, DeKalb County, Watertown, and Cookeville — had come to an end.

Authorities boxed in the out-of-control automobile.

“He turned off on Old Liberty Road and came to a stop. He opened his door. He was naked and covered in blood. He then shut his door and kept driving. [T]yson…had severed his own penis and tossed it out the car window somewhere along the route either before or during the chase."

It’s unclear how he thought it might have helped.

Perhaps he felt the vehicle was sluggish, and he needed to cut weight.

Or maybe he was already crafting an insanity plea.

Either way, it was an extraordinary feat — especially if the Honda is a stick shift.

Through my training on this forum I immediately thought: "80% chance that the story is not real". I was proven right and I'm quite satisfied with myself :) (Note: I truly believe that homophobic really occur, but this one just sounded too florid.)

Spanish media: battered man Madrid has withdrawn anti-gay violence assertion​

The Spanish man who mentioned he was assaulted over the weekend for being homosexual has mentioned he made up his story. The 20-year-old Madrid resident mentioned he was attacked by a gaggle on the porch of his dwelling and stabbed within the face. The boys are additionally mentioned to have scratched the phrase ‘maricon’ (faggot) in his buttocks.

The police took the case significantly and searched the world for eyewitnesses, however they weren’t discovered and pictures from surveillance cameras didn’t present the attackers. When detectives confronted the person who made the report, he withdrew his story, writes the Noticias program of the general public channel RTVE. The person now says that the accidents have been inflicted by a person he had a relationship with.

The assault, which now seems to have been fabricated, was strongly condemned by Spanish Prime Minister Sánchez and LGBT+ curiosity teams referred to as on the streets to display in a number of Spanish cities tonight. An indication was additionally deliberate for the weekend.

This was the original story, but it was a fabrication to hide his affair. The word had been scratched into his buttocs with mutual consent by an "extramarital" sex partner. He invented to story to explain his "love marks".

lt’s just too nearly perfect; it pushes too many red buttons.

"Manse"?
Why do they shout about a clergy house inhabited by, or formerly inhabited by, a minister?

So some people were cheap and only cryo-froze their brains, hoping that if they were ever revived, they could just up and use someone else's body?:rofl:
Oh but Alcor (?), the American version, also does both whole body and head only cryogenics. The second option is cheaper of course. I think the idea is that in the future they will be able to grow new bodies.

Spoiler alert I guess but maybe not.
Didn't one of the X-files films have a plot in which some bloke was keeping himself alive by having his head transplanted onto kidnapped peoples bodies?
Or am I getting confused with something else?

Squirrels have personalities too — just not as many as humans


iu


A new study finds that friendly squirrel staring at you in the park has a personality — just like humans. Researchers from the University of California-Davis say these characteristics range from aggressive, to social or polite, to careful and shy.

Scouse F1 fan gets nabbed by Dutch peelers for being Sicilian crime boss!

Via BBC News:

A Formula 1 fan from Liverpool was arrested at gunpoint in the Netherlands after being mistaken for a mafia boss.
Police believed the 54-year-old, known as Mark L, was Sicilian crime lord Matteo Messina Denaro and he was blindfolded and led away by officers in The Hague on Wednesday.
Prosecutors said the man, who was in the country to watch the Dutch Grand Prix on 5 September, was later freed.
Denaro, 59, is wanted over bombings in 1993 which killed 10 and injured 93.
Mark L had been eating at a restaurant with his son when police burst in, carrying a European Arrest Warrant issued by the Italian authorities.
His lawyer Leon van Kleef said it was "like a bad movie, a nightmare that my client has found himself in".

He continued: "Imagine one moment you are having a bite to eat and the next you are sat in a maximum-security Dutch prison."
He said his client "had anger and disbelief and laughter because it is ludicrous".
"He is a normal Formula One fan. I was always convinced he was not it. It would have been a genius of an Italian to have such a strong Liverpool accent."

Eh, calm down!

Cos that is what would really piss me off if it was me.

U.S. Soldiers Warned Army Base Could Be Infiltrated By Wild Monkeys​


https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/worl...uld-be-infiltrated-by-wild-monkeys/ar-AAOr12u

-----------------------------------------
The statement read: "To our Camp Zama community. Please be aware that Sagamihara City officials have had reports of wild monkeys in the wooded area just northwest of Camp Zama in between the 900-area housing and the airfield.

"Officials are warning that the monkeys could easily enter the installation, as they have previously.

"Do not try to approach, feed or even make eye contact. And please ensure your children get this message. Japanese officials say it's not uncommon to see wild monkeys, and that they will likely leave the area quickly as they prefer to avoid human contact."

Porn star charged after photographer dies from smoking toad poison


A Spanish porn star has been arrested after a photographer died inhaling the venom of an endangered North American toad in a "mystic ritual".

Nacho Vidal

Nacho Vidal, 46, and two others were detained last Friday over the death, with Mr Vidal charged over the suspicion of manslaughter following an 11-month investigation.

The ritual allegedly took place at the porn actor's home near the city of Valencia last July.

The photographer, referred to as Jose Luis Abad by local media, used a pipe to inhale the toxic fumes from the toad.
