Get In The Half-Christmas Spirit at Addison Improv.
Last week, Jeffrey Jones of Sacramento was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. He stands accused of having thrown a spear through the front fender of a car.
In and of itself, this story is a pretty remarkable one. But it gets even better when you see the guy's Cro-Magnon-esque mug shot. Doesn't he just look like the kind of guy who'd still favor a spear in 2013?
Why, yes. Yes, he does.
We'd also argue that this story serves as a nice reminder that one should always be mindful of their surroundings when daring to venture outside of their homes. Also? Be especially wary of anyone who looks like they belong to a previous stage of human evolution.
