Pittsburgh Man's Weapon of Choice: Easter Eggs

One minute you're decorating Easter eggs; the next, you're being pelted with the eggs as your boyfriend goes on a rampage ... and that's not even the craziest part of this story. Pittsburgh police say Aaron Goempel, 27, started throwing the hard-boiled eggs at the female victim after she accused him of cheating on her yesterday. When police arrived, Goempel had barricaded himself in a bedroom, and when officers got through the door, he reached for swords and knives that were on top of his dresser, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

But officers managed to get him outside, where he allegedly kicked one of them in the groin while hurling racist obscenities as police got him into the cruiser. They had covered his head with a pillowcase before taking him outside ... because, not surprisingly, he's had run-ins with the law before, and is known to be a spitter. He faces charges of aggravated assault. One of the eggs hit and bruised the victim's right eye, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
