There's Crazy in Texas, and Then There's Crazy

Expensive luxury cars wrecked by a crazy naked man in Texas - CamaroCarPlace

A naked man with a shotgun at first stormed into the Shell gas station and tore up the place. That information was reported by witnesses who saw the accident. Later the crazy guy ran across street to a luxury car rental lot and attacked those beautiful luxury cars. He damaged several windshields of these luxury cars, before police officers arrested him.

Yes, once the article includes "naked man with a shotgun" . . . the crazy is pretty much assumed. Since he was naked, I guess it wasn't a concealed weapon, but more "open carry."

I see things have escalated.

On more than one occasion, San Antonio cops have arrested naked, but unarmed hitch-hikers who were "on their way to Austin".

"It was reported that these cars were damaged during the accident: Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Dodge Challenger, Aston Martin Rapide, Mercedes-Benz SLK, Fisker Karma & Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG."

Apologists would say it's not his fault, as the cars themselves were "in the wrong place at the wrong time".

Good luck to the insurance companies trying to collect restitution for this ---the true victims here will be the other policyholders whose future insurance rates may rise to cover the damages.

Not the state of Texas' fault though.

He will enter or re-enter their Mental Health system, I think, with any criminal charges deferred or dropped totally.

People like this never should have guns though. Hopefully he can be prevented from getting another one.

I hope no small children saw any of this. It would be hard to explain to them.

WTF is a Dodge Challenger doing in that group? That's the crazy part of the story.
