Kevin searches far and wide to find some of the funniest and craziest stories about people who just aren’t thinking as clearly as they should be. They usually get in trouble for what they do and it makes headlines in the news. When that happens, we find the best of the best and bring you a little something we like to call, ‘People Are Dumb’.

A Florida man arrested twice this month for bringing loaded gun to the airport. He was arrested for the second time this month for trying to bring a loaded gun through a TSA checkpoint. Officials say the unidentified man was arrested at Syracuse International Airport Thursday after the gun was found at a checkpoint with a loaded gun in his luggage. The TSA spokesperson went on to say that this was the second time in one month that the same individual was caught with a gun. He gave them the exact same excuse both times, “That’s not mine!” If he’s anything, he’s persistent.

A seventeen-year-old girl who tried to get into her home via the chimney had to be rescued by firefighters. Two girls were locked out of the house and one of them tried climbing down the chimney and got stuck. They had to call 911 for help and It took firefighters almost 45 minutes to get her out. In total the girl was inside the chimney for about an hour and a half. When she was finally removed she was covered in soot. The teenager’s parents rushed home from the movie theater and were not happy.

The next story was sent in by listener Raul and the headline is the entire story. “Two men accused of gluing winning numbers onto Mississippi Lottery ticket tried to claim the $100,000 prize.”

Our final story may be the best story ever. The police were called to the Walmart in Wisconsin around 8:30 Wednesday night. They were told a woman and her dog were shoplifting. When police got there, they found 46-year-old Lisa Smith at the front door screaming “Bo, Bo!” which is the name her dog. Police learned that the Smith went into the Walmart with her dog off the leash on purpose the dog started creating a distraction while she started erratically pulling apart store display’s and putting them in her cart. When she was asked to leave she started performing Karate moves in the parking lot. Her dog Bo grabbed a box of corn mix and also tried to leave the store. When the police arrived she continued to perform Karate moves by trying to kick out the window of the squad car. Police say that while all of this was going on, Smith’s son was in the back of the store and he had taken off all of his clothes and was exposing himself to customers. When the officers approached him he attempted to get away on his scooter. No word on whether it was a rascal or a full-size moped scooter. He was arrested as well and police managed to catch Bo and brought him to the Humane Association. “The dog was not charged – we issued him a warning for the theft,” police stated in the release.
