Stupid News for 12/5/13

      An Arkansas business owner ended up behind bars after talking about wanting to kill a former employee, who listened in on the plot after getting a butt-dial that revealed all the details! Larry Barnett made the mistake of sitting down to negotiate the murder while his cell phone was in his pocket. The misplaced device dialed the intended victim, who listened in for 90 minutes as Barnett went through every step of the crime, saying, "I don’t care if you have to burn his house to the ground with him in it. I don’t care what you have to do. Make it look like an accident." The man fled his home and went to cops, who went to investigate and found the place had been burglarized and the gas stove had been tampered with. Barnett has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

      An Indiana crook may have set the Guinness World Record for speediest confession - by copping to a robbery three hours before he committed it! Eric Logan Steffey walked into a gas station on Monday afternoon and told the clerk on duty that he was planning to come back later that day to rob  the place. After hearing the suspicious comment, the clerk took note of Steffey's license number and notified cops, who stepped up patrols – and only had to wait three hours for Steffey to return on foot, carrying a handgun. Steffey actually managed to go through with the stickup, since the officer on the scene "turned away ... for what must have been ten seconds," but he was caught within minutes and charged with armed robbery.

      A woman in England had a message for her no-good, cheating husband ... a message that she broadcast above their local pub. The wife convinced the owner to change the sign outside to read: "Paul ... I am divorcing you." The unnamed woman said, "I was angry and upset so wanted a sign to go up for everyone to see. When I found out I went through a mixture of emotions but felt angry and wanted him to pay ... I did feel a bit better once the sign went up. I wanted to name and shame him." And adding insult to injury she had a second sign go up, reading: "By the way, I am keeping the dog."
