WEIRD NEWS: Thrown Under the Bus
A Florida man who needed a ride ended up getting one -- to his local police station, after repeatedly calling 911 to demand a lift to his bus stop.
Jeffrey Scott Morrison placed more than a dozen calls to the emergency number, sometimes not saying a word, in an effort to get onto the bus he eventually got thrown under. Cops traced the calls to a nearby motel, which Morrison had just checked out of -- but not before rifling through the cars of fellow travelers, where he found Christmas presents that he unwrapped and left behind.
Morrison was apprehended outside the motel and arrested on charges of vehicle burglary and misuse of 911.
