Man attempts to amputate his arm at Denny’s. Mmmmm…..Moons over My Hammy

Man Attempts To Amputate Own Arm In Denny’s
MODESTO – (CBS13/AP) ― Modesto police say a local man who tried to cut off his own arm at a Denny’s restaurant thought he had injected air into one of his veins while shooting cocaine and would die unless he took drastic action.

The man, identified by police as Michael Lasiter, 33, rushed into the restaurant on Friday night and started stabbing himself in the right arm with a butter knife he grabbed from a customer’s table, police say. When that knife didn’t work, Lasiter allegedly took a butcher knife from the kitchen and dug it into his arm.

Lasiter, who was subdued with a taser and taken to a local hospital with severe cuts, told officers he thought he needed to amputate his arm to keep himself from dying from the cocaine injection, says Modesto police Sgt. Brian Findlen.

The Denny’s closed for the night after the incident.

Koala bear survives hit and run, STD

July 16, 2008

(Kim Kardashian loves koalas…not that it has anything to do with Ely’s..umm…infection)

This is a bizarre story when you consider he survived being hit by a car. And then you read what else he’s being treated for besides his injuries from the car. Ely’s a straight playa!

CANBERRA (Reuters) – A koala that cheated death after being hit by a car at 100 kmh (about 60 mph) and dragged with his head jammed through the vehicle grill for 12 kms (about 7 miles) is being dubbed Australia’s luckiest marsupial.

The eight-year-old male koala, named “Ely ‘Lucky’ Grills” by rescuers, was struck by an unwitting motorist north of Brisbane and found only when the car stopped after being flagged down by another vehicle.

“To have him survive and virtually unscathed is quite miraculous,” Australian Wildlife Hospital spokewoman Carolyn Beaton told Reuters Tuesday.

“Lucky” hung on during his ordeal with one arm and his trapped head, and was freed with household scissors used like a fireman’s “jaws-of-life” to cut around the car’s mesh grill with the horrified owner’s permission, Beaton said.

“Whilst Lucky was in shock, he quickly recovered and was nearly better after a couple of hours rest and a feed,” she said.

Lucky will stay at the hospital, set up by the late television wildlife and crocodile crusader Steve Irwin, for 45 days to recover from his experience and receive treatment for a chlamydial infection.

Now that I think about it, I do recall reading that Pamela Anderson just returned from a trip to Australia as well…..<ponders>
