Crack attack

A lot of people are tense about rising prices and an economic downturn, and it turns out that crackheads are no exception:
Gus Young Jr. was arrested on charges including criminal mischief and disorderly intoxication after allegedly smashing a DVD case and destroyed a counter partition Tuesday at Dixon's Food Mart, reported Wednesday.

Police said the manager of the store spotted Young outside the store after officers arrived and the suspect was arrested. The police report states Young smelled of alcohol and was "challenging people to fight."

"When Young calmed down, he said he was upset that the price of a rock (crack cocaine) had gone up to $20 from $10," the report stated. "Young claimed he swung his fist at a drug dealer in the store, but the drug dealer ducked and Young struck the partition and DVD case instead of the drug dealer."
The lesson here? You should wait until you're outside the convenience store to take a swing at a drug dealer. Fighting in an enclosed space like that is a recipe for trouble.

Oh, and you probably shouldn't smoke crack, either. Yeah.
