I like that this happened during the day. Who parties this hard during daytime?
Here's an article that went along with it.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/she-went-naked-rampage-florida-185715983.html

According to a police report from the Ocala Police Department, the suspect, later identified as TIna Kindred, 53, was arrested after causing thousands of dollars in damages at an Outback in Ocala on June 1. Before the frenzy at the steakhouse, the Florida woman also caused havoc at a nearby restaurant called Mojo Grill, banging windows and flipping over tables, according to the complaint.

Kindred was placed in handcuffs and taken to a nearby health facility where THC was found in her system. Kindred was later taken to Marion County Jail, charged with aggravated assault and felony criminal mischief and held on $12,000 bond.

Another award winner in the wee hours. Doer takes the fly over to US 75 in downtown Dallas to fast. Flips over the rail onto the highway below. Needed the jaws of life for the extraction. Driver transported. Condition unknown. Highway still closed. Traffic diverted to service road.

I am convinced that an alien spaceship came down in the dead of night, and dropped off all of their stupid people. And the bad part is they ain't coming back to get 'em.

Was it where I-35W goes under it ? I lived in Maypearl (west of Waxahachie) for a short time.

So I'll share my own near Darwin Award. When I was stationed in Germany our barracks were 3 stories. I lived on the second floor and my room was kind of known for throwing parties and drinking a lot of German beer and other spirits while off duty. I may or may not have had a lot to do with that. :)

The barracks had outdoor walkways with concrete railings maybe 4 feet high. One Friday night we were partying a bit hard and I cranked up Sabotage by the Beastie Boys on my stereo. This was not long after the Sabotage music video came out. If you have not seen the video it is a throwback to 70's and 80's police shows with police running and chasing people. I'll include the video at the bottom of this post.

Prior to this event when things got a little inebriated and I played that song my friends and I would chase each other along the walkway like the video acting stupid like drunk people in their early 20's often do. Alcohol does indeed make stupid things fun. :)

So this time, for some reason I decided it would be cool to try and run across the railing while drunk. Needless to say I fell off the second floor and fortunately landed on a bush that was part of the landscaping. I was sore as hell, scratched up and bruised, so no big deal. In review I could have fallen and broken my back or neck. I didn't do it again. But I certainly was stupid as heck and could have Darwined myself in an embarrassing way.. haha
