How stupid can you get: A guy in Kentucky tried to rob an ice cream store with a stapler….
Gerald A. Rocchi, 32, was arrested shortly after he flashed a chrome-plated stapler at an employee of The Ice Cream Shop in Ashland on Tuesday and demanded money, police said.
Ashland Police Capt. Don Petrella said he didnâ€™t know if Rocchi planned to shoot staples at the shopâ€™s employees or use it as a blunt instrument if he didnâ€™t get the cash.
He must have thought the stapler looks frightening enough. At least he thought about covering his face up with a ski mask. Rocchi was charged with first-degree robbery.
