You Really CAN Buy Anything at Walmart
In today's installment of "Seriously?" I present the story of Patrick Fousek and Samantha Tomasini:
The two were arrested Wednesday in Salinas, Calif., for trying to sell their 6-month old baby outside a Walmart store. (If only they had made it inside the store, I'm sure they would have been prominently featured here.)
Fousek demanded the princely sum of $25 for the child. Which, I'm guessing, is about what an evening's worth of crystal meth goes for in Salinas. From the AP report:
Fousek and Tomasini were arrested at 1 a.m. Wednesday at their home.
Officers said the couple appeared high on methamphetamine and the house
was in disarray. A police report also claimed that Tomasini told Child
Protective Services, who took the baby, that she had breast-fed the
infant while under the influence, Villegas said.
The couple will be arraigned today. And I hope they enjoy their stay in prison.
