    bottom of article

    In an unrelated incident, an unidentified man was accused of stealing an ambulance parked at the scene. Authorities tracked the ambulance through its GPS system, finding it one block away.
    Police found a man at least 30 years old inside the Tarpon Springs water treatment facility. When confronted, the man approached police holding a flashlight in one hand and clenching what turned out to be a potato in the other, Templeton said.
    Police Tasered the man when he refused to lay down. The man, who later variously identified himself as "Maggie," "Shadow" and "Spartacus," faces charges of grand theft, burglary and resisting arrest with violence.

    The link doesn't work because there is an extra dash in there somewhere.

    Potato, tomato, Maggie, Spartacus. Yes, I see the connections.

    I don't understand the ambulance connection, though. A chariot I could see, but an ambulance? Well....not so much.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Who ate the baked potato after he was tasered? And did it come with fried green tomato?

    "I'm Spartacus". Isn't that a famous line from the movie?

    Sleuthster thanks I needed to laugh until I cried.

    Now let's see who can find out this guy's real given name? Takers?
