It’s ironic Timothy lives in Eureka, because he invented a truly ingenious weapon.
Eureka cops responded to a report of shots fired Wednesday afternoon and found a man who had been struck in the hand with a shotgun shell filled with Rice Krispies. The weapon turned out to be a flare gun.
Police said they were told the assailant was Timothy Glass Jr., 29, of Eureka, and that he had fled the scene on a bicycle. The victim was taken to the hospital.
Glass was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility. He was charged with resisting arrest and probation violation.
“Based on the investigation it appears Glass fired a flare gun loaded with a shotgun shell filled with Rice Krispies,” police said. (H/T – Jim F.)
Oddly enough, investigators milk-boarded Glass until he confessed to the crime.
