An Austrian police officer monitoring motorists was covered in manure by an explosive booby trap likely meant to target traffic cops, police said.
Police spokesman Rainer Dionisio said Constable Gunther Maier, 58, triggered a fishing line at the side of the Moelltal state highway and the line set off explosives in a nearby plastic bucket filled with manure.
Dionisio said Maier was about 6.5 feet away from the bucket when it detonated. He said the officer was covered with manure, but not injured.
The spokesman said the trap was likely designed to target police, as the spot where Maier was watching traffic is often used by officers using radar guns to monitor the speed of motorists.
Somehow I think that a review of recent tickets from that location may yield a suspect or more; maybe dozens. I’m just glad no photos or videos of the alleged crime were published.
Austin Michael Symonds 18, is charged with one count of tampering with a consumer product.
According to the felony complaint, a customer called in an order to Papa Murphy’s on September 2nd. When he walked in that’s when he saw Symonds rubbing his testicles on the family sized pizza he ordered.
The customer told police he asked Symonds how old he was.
“18,” Symonds said.
“So you are old enough to know better than to put your balls on someone’s pizza,” the customer said.
Symonds apologized to the customer. He told his manager that he did it because the customer called in the order right before closing.
Disgusting and wrong in so many ways but a felony? Seriously this is insane folks.
I am glad he was fired. I’m glad there were criminal charges filed. Hopefully, but doubt it will, make others think twice before doing something stupid like this. This may seem like a minor issue isolated to a single case but it is a common practice to charge people with the highest crime possible instead of something more appropriate like criminal mischief.
This could ruin the kids life for a very long time.
The teen told detectives he would have probably given the pizza to the customer if he hadn’t been caught. Symonds was released from the Williamson County Jail after posting bond. If convicted of the felony he faces between two and 20 years and a fine not to exceed $10,000.
He faces two to twenty years in prison for a imbecilic act. He faces the lose of many of his rights; including the right to keep and bear arms. I’m not saying it was a harmless act but is it really worth a felony ?
First up, the Texas version. Have looked for this in the news media for the last 36 hours but found nothing.
Was driving home down Lancaster Avenue on Monday when I came up on an accident at an intersection. Car versus bike; couldn’t tell exactly what happened but it look like the car turned in front of the bike.
It was a cop car.
At the intersection directly in front of the police station.
About 8 cop cars were parked in the intersection.
Definitely not going to be able to hide that one.
…I really do. I hope that I’m concerned over nothing but I can’t see this not going bad at some point.
I really don’t understand the mindset of these people; those are undomesticated animals that they are training to hunt — while raising them in the house with their children. I hope and pray that nothing bad ever happens but I certainly won’t be surprised if it does.
I’m not going to say “There should be a law”; people should be allowed to put themselves and their children in jeopardy if they choose. Just as I’m allowed to think they are all kinds of dumb for doing so.
The agent, Chris Yves Dabel, discovered the device at the Terminal 2 security checkpoint and tried to determine if it was real, a source told The Post.
He told Port Authority cops that he “found the canister on the floor and thought it was a laser pointer.”
“They were playing around with it,” said one Kennedy Airport official.
Way to go there Security Expert !!! I’m glad they were not permanently harmed but even a TSA employee should know not to play around with dangerous items. And the idea of pointing a laser at his fellow employees’ faces: real brilliant! Not very sympathetic to their suffering.
The screener sprayed five other TSA agents around him, sending all six to Jamaica Hospital and halting security checks at Kennedy for at least 15 minutes, police said.
Now that I can feel sorry for — poor people at the airport had to be delayed by 15 minutes due to this buffoon’s actions.
