Craving Pizza

It wasn’t unusual for a 27-year-old man and three children aged 3 to 6 to show up at Happy’s Pizza in Muskegon Township, Mich. But according to the police report, the man was “wearing only a towel and carrying a gun.” Even though the restaurant was open, the man couldn’t get the door open and, apparently angry about not being able to get in, started banging on the door, discharging his .40 caliber pistol and smashing the glass. He left and walked home, where police found him on the porch. An officer ordered him to drop his gun and, when he did, took him into custody and called Child Protective Services. The unnamed man allegedly admitted to taking four hits of acid before heading out to eat. (MS/Muskegon Chronicle) ...And his arrest made for a Happy ending for the restaurant employees.
