When You Gotta Go...

According to Berkeley, Calif., Police Officer Byron White, a man was returning to his apartment when Joseph Skyler, 25, held him up at gunpoint. White said Skyler took the man’s car keys and cell phone — then told him he needed to use the restroom. The two went into the man’s apartment, where Skyler allegedly kicked the grandmother out of the bathroom, brought the man inside with him, and made him turn around while Skyler used the toilet. Skyler then left in the grandmother’s car, and the family called the police. Skyler was easy to catch: there were reports of a reckless driver in the area. He was booked on suspicion of robbery and carjacking. (MS/San Francisco Chronicle) ...Where he’ll always be last in line to use the toilet.
