Depressed student goes off his meds, attacks some Hell's Angels with a puppy, and then escapes on a stolen bulldozer. Both student and puppy are safe in custody. I am not making this up.

This post was deleted for the following reason: Yeah, this is still random detail-free news of the weird. I know it's an eye-catching headline and all, but it's barely more than that. -- cortex



 
I'm glad every news outlet has specified that it was a stolen bulldozer, not the guy's regular bulldozer he drives to class.

When I first read this story, I was sure it was a mistranslation.

People going off their meds is hilarious. Not.

I can't believe the headline neglected to mention that he dropped trou.

Though that does seem like the most normal part of the entire transaction.

What else are you supposed to do when you need to get rid of a puppy really fast?

I checked with a bunch of german papers and found some more details. curiously enough though that none of the major papers have anything at all on this. alas, the guy is actually 26, was wearing just his underwear (and not bermudas) and first fled in his own car, which he later replaced with a frontloader. Autobahn A9 was where he decided to take that one, which is beyond dumb.

German student attacks Hell's Angels with puppy

I think that's a misplaced modifier -- was it the attack or the Hell's Angels who had the puppy?

I don't think it's funny when people go off their meds, I think it's tragic (and I've had some negative medication experiences myself), but unfortunately this is one of those times where my Inappropriate Humor Defense Mechanism kicks in.
