Man arrested for pointing a banana at the police

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/colorado-man-arrested-after-pointing-banana-at-police/
snip:
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -- A man is facing a felony menacing charge, because two Colorado sheriff's deputies say they thought a banana he pointed at them was a gun.

Like the British, maybe we should call the police the Peelers.

1. omg

from the story:

Yes, the man accused of pointing a banana at police is from Fruitvale.

And yes, one of the police officers he pointed the banana at is named Bunch.

And, no, we didn't make this up.
