Dad is a sore loser.
July 08, 2020
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Sometimes it's just better to let Dad win, especially after he's had a few drinks. That probably would have been the best strategy for one Kentucky family who were forced out of their home by gunfire after the patriarch lost an arm wrestling match to his son.
Curtis Zimmerman, 55, surrendered to authorities shortly before 8:30 a.m. at his residence, after a nearly 8 hour standoff, the sheriff's office said in a press release.
"Deputies learned that Zimmerman was intoxicated and challenged his juvenile son to an arm-wrestling contest. When Zimmerman lost multiple times, he became agitated, which led to a physical altercation with his son," the release said. "Zimmerman grabbed a firearm and as his son was going upstairs, Zimmerman fired two shots inside of the house."
Deputies dispatched to the residence about 1 a.m. determined that two of Zimmerman's family members had exited safely and were unharmed. Zimmerman, who was the only one who remained inside the home, refused for hours to obey commands to exit the residence as members of the Hostage Negotiation Team and SWAT Team converged on the residence.
The release said Zimmerman told authorities that he fired the shots into the ceiling. After Zimmerman surrendered, he was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.
He will be charged with wanton endangerment.

Paraglider takes couch, TV into the sky
A Turkish paragliding instructor rigged up a couch and a TV so he could become a "couch potato" hundreds of feet in the air. Hasan Kaval, 29, of Izmir, created a miniature living room, complete with a couch, a lamp and a TV set, and rigged it to a parachute harness to take on the paragliding track at Babadag Air Sports and Recreation Center. The video shows Kaval kick his shoes off over the water and put on some slippers to settle into the sofa and watch cartoons while cruising through the air. Kaval even pulls some snacks and drinks out of his bag to enjoy during his TV time. The rig was able to land safely. Kaval said his stunt was aimed at showing how safe the sport of paragliding can be.

Baby on board
John and Amber Easterday, along with their two children, took a pontoon boat out on Old Tampa Bay on Saturday, the Fourth of July, when Amber went into labor. Amber immediately called her doctor. "He had told me, 'wait a little bit,' and within 40 minutes from that time I talked to him, the baby was out," she said. "We couldn’t make it back to the dock to deliver. My husband had called 911." John says he began delivering his son while the boat headed for shore. John was able to get to the beach where Fire Medic Kenny Sweitzer and Fire Medic Tyler Whitfield were waiting. Just four minutes later, the family welcomed baby Aiden - 10 days early.
