Man Attacked With Toilet Bowl Lid Had a Worse Day Than Robert Pattinson

toilet bowlI know they say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but I think we gotta talk about this. According to the Las Vegas Sun, a delirious man in his early 40s broke into a house and beat the homeowner over the head with a guitar and a toilet bowl lid. The perp allegedly got into the house by barrelling through a screen and fought with the alleged victim for 20 minutes. The cops were called and eventually detained the crazy man, but no motive was released. I mean, as far as living nightmares go, this would be at the top of my list.

I gotta imagine there's no greater indignity than being assaulted by a crazed stranger wielding a toilet bowl lid. And we thought Robert Pattinson had a bad day.


The police report also says that the delirious man tried to strangle the homeowner several times and even threw around some death threats. The victim was treated at a local hospital for bruises, but luckily, it sounds like he'll be OK. 

Nutty stuff seems to happen a lot in Sin City -- just recently there were some chimps running wild through the streets, and back in February, a man ate an aptly-named Triple Bypass burger and then had a heart attack. That last one isn't so much crazy unpredictable as it is crazy stupid, but no matter which way you slice it, there's a lot of cray coming out of Vegas.

In the city's defense, there's also some good crazy in the town -- a fallen soldier left his life insurance, about $1 million, to his buddies to have a blast partying in Vegas. Now that's insanely awesome.

Guess the man whose weapon of choice was a toilet bowl lid -- of all the household items! -- will be added to the long list of berserk things that go down every day in the gambling capital of the world.

Here's to the victim's quick recovery.

What's the craziest Vegas story you've ever heard?
