Show Notes for Thursday April 2, 2020



Dear John,

My business is closed right now. My grandfather opened this business. My father ran it until he passed away last year. I've worked here for over 20 years. When we locked the doors last week. It was the first time the business has been closed for more than a long weekend. I'm feeling pretty low right now. I've had many people tell me it's going to be OK. Any advice to help me feel better for letting my whole team go?

A drunk Florida man “thanked” a good Samaritan who gave him a place to stay when he couldn’t get home by peeing all over his bedroom and then attacking him. The victim said he was at a party in downtown Melbourne on Saturday when he met Colin Geib, who he described as a friend of a friend. 23-year-old Geib was drunk, didn’t have a way to get home, and couldn’t provide his address, so the victim took him back to his place so he could have “a safe place to be.” The victim allowed Geib to sleep in a room, and he went to sleep in another room for the night. Sunday morning, the victim heard noises from the house and found Geib “peeing everywhere in the room.” Police said the victim repeatedly asked Geib to leave, but Geib wouldn’t and instead became upset and turned violent. Geib punched the man multiple times and attempted to choke him. Police said they found blood at the front door, holes in the walls, and a room saturated with urine. Geib was arrested on charges of battery, indecent exposure, and property damage. (

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
In Germany, people help toads cross the road. You might not want to bring up the popular video game Frogger in Germany. There, they like to protect their frogs, toads, and other amphibians. In order to save them from harm when crossing the street, conservation organizations installed more than 800 fences along popular roadways. Along these fences are buckets, so when they try to cross, they eventually hop into one. At the end of the day, wildlife conservationists collect the buckets and release frogs across the road into a nearby forest with ponds and lakes.

A man convicted less than a year ago of assaulting his roommate is accused of biting off another roommate’s earlobe. 30-year-old Ryan Michael Cook of West Valley City, was arrested early Friday for investigation of mayhem and intoxication. Around 2:00 a.m., Cook got into a fight with his roommate of four months. Police said, “During the altercation Cook bit the right earlobe of the roommate causing severe separation of the earlobe.” Police also noted that Cook was “highly intoxicated.” In June, Cook was convicted of similar crimes by pleading no contest to amended charges of attempted trespassing, assault, and criminal mischief. He was placed on two years’ probation, but a warrant was issued for his arrest in September for failing to comply with the terms of that probation. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Alpharetta, Georgia police have arrested a man accused of pointing a gun at two women because he was scared of catching the Coronavirus. Officials told FOX 5 they were called to the post office on Webb Bridge Road after reports of a person pulling a gun. When they got to the scene, officers found the two women at the scene. The suspect had already fled. The victims told police they entered the post office wearing medical masks and gloves when they met the man, who immediately pulled out a gun and told them to get back. Alpharetta police used the man's license plate to meet the suspect in his driveway, where he peacefully surrendered. Officials say he had a holstered firearm when he was arrested. During questioning, the man said he pointed the gun at the victims “in fear of catching the Coronavirus.” (
