The holidays can be stressful, causing otherwise good people to act out in terrible ways, or, the season can create a perfect set-up for scam artists to cash in on the desperate.
Here, then, are three stupid crimes that took place over the weekend.
Oh, you already know how it went down, but we’ll tell you anyway.
Jacquetta Simmons of Batavia, N.Y., was lugging her goods out of a Wal-Mart store when 70-year-old Wal-Mart greeter Grace Suozzi asked to check Simmons’ receipt, a well-known security measure.
According to police, Simmons punched Suozzi in the face and ran out of the store — and right into the arms of shocked Wal-Mart shoppers and employees who couldn’t believe what they witnessed.
Suozzi suffered a facial fracture; Simmons was released from jail on a $40,000 bond.
