If there has ever been a reasonable case for a plea of insanity, maybe it’s this one.
Andrew Gilbertson is charged with robbing a Bank of America in October 2013 – which is perhaps the first bullet point in an insane person. I mean come on, there are SO many easier illegal ways to get money in 2015. While taking the stand this Wednesday, he reached into his pants to grab his own personal brand for a snack, as instructed to him by the Virgin Mary herself.
Unsurprisingly, the court was called into a recess, where a mental health expert was called in to analyze Gilbertson’s behavior.
Here’s a video report of the full story, which thankfully does not feature any actual footage of the “One Disturbed Man, One Cup” incident:
Hat tip to Uproxx.
Hot mics… they’ll get you every time. Just ask Robert Durst.
Fortunately, this latest gaffe was a lot more innocent.
Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes was having some fun with the stenographers at a press conference in L.A. on Wednesday, trying to test their skills with a complicated word: “syzygy.”
Soon after, one of these women caught his attention, and he shared his opinion of her with his teammates unaware that everyone in the room could hear him as well.
“God she’s beautiful,” he said, quickly realizing his mistake. He then covered his face in shame as he was suddenly thrust into viral video stardom.

Between drunk Secret Service agents and Eleanor Holmes Norton, maybe we need to give all of Washington a refresher course in how to drive.
The D.C. delegate tried and failed to park her car outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and the mess was all captured in the video above.
“If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” says one of the people watching the disaster.
In addition to being completely out of alignment with the rest of the vehicles, she apparently banged into the car next to her multiple times during the half-hour long debacle. Eventually she and her aide just walk away as if it’s all NBD.
Her office later told Roll Call that there were no damages and they left a card on the windshield so they could contact them.
Not sure that warrants the “worst parking job ever” award – a quick YouTube search reveals much worse – but it’s certainly up there in the rankings.
And Mr. Piggly Wiggly is theclear winner for recent parking lot fails. That one will be tough to beat.
