Hit and Run

A very interesting(and dumb) way to assault a police officer.

DES MOINES (AP) — A college student whose friend was being questioned in a hit and run found himself charged with assaulting an officer with a curious choice of weapons: M&Ms.

Sean McGuire was arrested early Sunday at a convenience store after Drake University security guards noticed the colored candies falling on the ground around the officer. When the officer turned around, an M&M hit his shoulder, according to a police report.

McGuire claimed he threw the candy because he was “sticking up for his friend,” who apparently was the man suspected in the accident, the report states.

Doug at Below the Beltway wrote– “Yea, the guy was a dumbass. I just don’t get why he was wasting perfectly good chocolate.” I wonder what Mr. McGuire is majoring in at college. Being fair, we’ll take nominations from readers. Keep it rated PG13.
