SANTA MONICA (CBSLA) — A jewelry store owner is lucky to not have been seriously hurt after he was hit by a sledgehammer during a robbery Thursday in Santa Monica.

It started around 2:40 on an otherwise normal Thursday afternoon.

The store is located on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, a busy area.

Surveillance video captured the owner tending to inventory when a masked suspect enters. The store — ironically named Heist –was calm and quiet when the masked man came in and after an instant, smashed a display case with the sledgehammer.

The owner’s actions screamed “not today” and he intervened and began pushing the suspect outside. Unbeknownst to the owner, another masked suspect appears and hits him with a sledgehammer he’d be carrying. After a short struggle, the suspects […]

BYU Athlete Pierces Scrotum in Horrific Track Accident!

Published

(TMZ) — WORST POLE VAULTING INJURY EVER?!!?! Maybe … “I could see right into my scrotum.”

That’s probably the last thing you wanna say after a pole vault training sesh … but it’s exactly how BYU athlete, Zach McWhorter, is describing his pole vs. balls injury.

The 21-year-old was having a pretty typical training session at the BYU track — recording it to post on TikTok — when disaster struck.At first, it seemed like a standard jump … but McWhorter’s pole didn’t fall the way it supposed to and essentially impaled his scrotum.

That one time the pole went through my nuts… 18 stitches! #fail #polevault #athletics #trackandfield #ouch

YOWWWCH. McWhorter told BuzzFeed he was immediately rushed to the hospital by his dad/coach/urologist … where he needed 18 STITCHES to get patched up. Luckily, the dude says he only has a scar from the incident.

As for any permanent damage, McWhorter says “One day, we’ll find out if they function or not.”

Ice up, Zach. And, maybe wear a cup from now on??

Delta CEO Says Passengers Should Ask Permission to Recline Seat

By

(TMZ) — Well, this is pretty shocking … the head honcho at Delta seems to think the woman on the American Airlines flight who reclined her seat — only to have the passenger behind her treat her seatback like a punching bag — was out of line.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian appeared on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Friday, said it’s an etiquette issue … if a passenger knows a tall person is sitting behind them, they should ask permission before they recline. Presumably, that means if the person declines then the passenger can’t recline.

That certainly isn’t the way our users feel — by a 2-1 margin they support the woman on an AA jet who put her seat all the way back, only to have the dude behind her attack the seat like a boxer in training.

Of course, the counterargument to what Bastian believes is that the airline configures the plane, so it should design it so people can recline without interfering with the person behind them. If that’s not the case, it’s on the airline.

STUDIO CITY, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Some musical mayhem unfolded Saturday night at a Studio City Ralphs, where a shirtless man jumped onto a checkout counter and started jamming.

Cell phone video captured the man – who was wearing a red bandana, glasses and camouflage pants – as he knelt on top of the counter while music blasted throughout the store, located at 10901 Ventura Blvd.

Confused customers were seen staring and laughing as the man fought the power with his electric guitar while a store employee attempted to stop him.

Security guards eventually pulled the plug on the mini rock concert. Facebook video of the performance after the music was cut showed the man asking the crowd, “Are you not entertained?” – a nod to the […]
