After a man crashed his SUV into the front of a strip club in Madison, Wisc., police asked him if he was OK. “He said ‘Not good’,” reported police spokesman Joel DeSpain. “But he added he had seen some nice strippers.” Keith Rasmussen, 50, had been thrown out of the club by bouncers, and allegedly drove into the building on purpose. Then it gets weird. Police found him nine blocks away, but Rasmussen “denied driving the SUV to that location,” DeSpain says. “He said he arrived there with the help of Martians.” Rasmussen, who is from Racine, told police he came to Madison to murder his sister. When asked how, he told officers to look in his car: they found a large knife. He has been charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, hit and run, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage to property — and released after posting $2,800 bail. (RC/Madison Capital Times, Wisconsin State Journal) ...Hey, don’t worry: if he kills his sister, they’ll probably increase his bail.
