Pawel Fajedek [pr: PAH-vell FAY-deck] won a gold medal at the 2015 IAAF World Championships on Monday in Beijing, China, and decided it was time to celebrate, so he and some teammates decided to head out for a bar crawl. By the time the hammer-throwing champ called it a night, he was hammered indeed, and after pouring himself into a cab, he tried to pay for the ride with the medal he'd been awarded.
Fajedek woke up the next morning with a splitting headache and a whole lot of regrets, which he expressed to police, pleading for help in retrieving the medal. At first, the taxi driver was reluctant to return the prize, but eventually relented, handing it over in return for the agreed-upon fare.
Shannon Csapilla believed that her beau was cheating on her with her BFF, which put the brakes on her ability to reason -- not to mention her spelling. She decided to damage both their vehicles, and ended up puncturing all the tires on the cars, then keyed the four-letter word into her pal's door, not realizing she'd left one letter out.
The 20-year-old allegedly admitted the crime to her dude, but when cops showed up to question her about the crime, she denied it and tweeted a message saying, "Cops got nothing on me." She was arrested later that day and charged with criminal mischief.
The 32-year-old, who claimed he had no identification on him, also gave cops a birth date of 1935 when they responded to a call from a bar bouncer who said the suspect was as red-nosed as Rudolph after knocking back a few rounds and starting a fight with employees. Officers managed to subdue the man and discover he was, in fact, carrying a driver's license with his real name -- Casey Arundel.
Arundel, who was recently busted for DUI, was charged with disorderly intoxication and providing a false name to a law enforcement officer, both misdemeanors.
