Masked man with stapler robs ice cream shop of $175

In the most recent local example of what can only be described as criminal stupidity, police say that an Ashland man on Tuesday held up an ice cream parlor with a decidedly nonlethal weapon: A chrome-plated stapler.

Gerald A. Rocchi, 32, allegedly walked into The Ice Cream Shop, about 6:40 p.m., his face covered with a ski mask, brandished the stapler and demanded money, Ashland Police Department Capt. Don Petrella said.

It’s not known whether the robber had plans to fire projectiles with the stapler, or to use it as a blunt instrument if his demand wasn’t met.

Because of its chrome finish, the stapler could have conceivably been mistaken it for a handgun “if someone didn’t get a good look at it,” Petrella said. Store employees complied with the robber, forking over about $175 from the register, according to Petrella. » Article here

Man drinks 5.5 ounces of Tabasco sauce in 30 seconds

A Tea man may be the owner of new world record. Levi Johnson drank 5.5 ounces of Tabasco sauce in 30 seconds at the Sports Page bar and grill tonight in Tea in an attempt to break a record in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Johnson, an employee of the Sports Page, bested the current record of 5.07 ounces by drinking nearly three bottles of the chili sauce. Johnson was one of three competitors tonight.

An attempt to break a jalapeño chili-eating record on Tuesday failed, but an attempt to break the continuous karaoke singing record is in its fifth day. Naatjes plans to keep the singers going for 240 strait hours.

The bar will attempt to break the world record for most custard pies thrown in one minute at 7 p.m. Thursday. That record is currently held by talk show host Kelly Ripa. » Article here
