On Sunday, deputies were called to the Dollar General on West Highway 26 in Ocala to investigate a commercial robbery. An employee said a man took cash from the register and fled on foot. The police report stated that while deputies were on their way to the store, they saw a man matching the suspect’s description walking along Highway 326. Police stated that the employee immediately recognized the suspect as 31-year-old Matthew Pringle, and said it was the same person who robbed him two years ago. The very next day, Pringle returned to the same Dollar General location and was recognized by an employee from the robbery from the day before. However, when the employee tried to call 911, Pringle allegedly jumped him, took the phone from his hand and knocked him to the ground. Pringle fled on foot after taking an unknown amount of cash from the register, but deputies were able to locate him and detain him about a quarter-mile away. During his apprehension, the report said Pringle told officers he was “hearing voices that were directing him to conduct the robberies.”
Brandon Hall walked into his Collier County home at around 3 a.m. Wednesday. He said he heard voices, but thought it was just the TV left on. The sound was actually coming from inside his bedroom. “When I opened my bedroom door, my stuff’s on the floor and there’s just a naked guy sitting on my bed. I mean there’s no other way to put it,” he said. The naked stranger was 38-year-old John Lyles, a man who said he lived nearby. “He kept saying that he lived here and next thing you know he said that someone had sent him here. And we don’t really know anyone around here,” Hall said. Hall rushed outside and called 911. Lyle continued to stay inside the residence. When deputies arrived, Lyle was wearing Brandon’s bathrobe – but he was still exposed. Lyle didn’t know where he was and admitted to smoking crack cocaine earlier. He told deputies he was off his schizophrenia medication. Lyle was taken into custody. Deputies say he threatened them while in the back of their patrol car.

“Father, every day I hear a voice telling me how bad I am, and chastising me for all the things I’ve done wrong in my life. Am I possessed?”
“No”, says the priest, “just married.”

This is the story of the poor ditzy blonde flying in a two-seater airplane with just the pilot.
He has a heart attack and dies. She, frantic, calls out for help.
“May Day! May Day! Help me! Help me! My pilot had a heart attack and is dead. And I don’t know how to fly. Help me! Please help me!”
She hears a voice over the radio saying: “This is Air Traffic Control and I have you loud and clear. I will talk you through this and get you back on the ground. I’ve had a lot of experience with this kind of problem. Now, just take a deep breath. Everything will be fine! First, give me your height and position.”
She says, “I’m 5’4″ and I’m in the front seat.” “O.K.” says the voice on the radio…. “repeat after me: Our Father…Who art in Heaven…”
