A man in Georgia wearing no clothes recently broke into a liquor store and stole a can of soda. Police said 61-year-old Charles Wyatt used a hammer to break the glass of Beverage World in Forsyth County early in the morning. Surveillance video shows the man entering the store completely naked except for his shoes. He then steals a Coke and wanders around drinking it before lying down for a little while. Wyatt was arrested around 4:00 a.m. after exiting the store and charged with burglary, theft by taking, and possession of tools for the commission of a crime. The owner of the store, Jamie Kurisko, told WSB-TV he was “relieved” because he figured Wyatt wasn’t really trying to rob him. (

Police say a Connecticut man charged with throwing a brick through the window of a police car, narrowly missing an officer's head, said he did it because he “hates cops.” Devon Adams-Almstad was charged with first-degree criminal mischief, assault on police, hate crime, and other offenses for allegedly throwing the brick at the Hartford police cruiser just after 9:00 p.m. Monday. The unnamed officer was cut with flying glass, but declined medical attention. Assistant Chief Rafael Medina says Adams-Almstad, who is white, said he “hates cops and was targeting a white cop due to recent events in the news.” The 20-year-old Hartford man was held on $100,000 bail. The case was not yet listed in online court records and it could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer. (
