Man Charged With Aggravated Weirdness

A 23-year-old man was arrested in Oregon on November 26 after "acting suspiciously" in a bank. "Acting suspiciously" is not illegal, normally, but it sounds like they are making an exception in this case. Employees said the man entered the bank wearing stick-on facial tattoos and a vest made out of sheet metal, and then took off his shoes and socks and put them in a wastebasket. He then put a small AM/FM radio on a counter, put a dog muzzle over his face, walked out of the bank and got on a bus and left.

Police said he did not make any threats, did not try to rob the bank, and that all the items he left behind were completely harmless.

Still, they arrested him for "disorderly conduct" and "menacing," which I guess is what you do when you have no clue what somebody might have been up to but they were being incredibly weird in a bank.
