A clerk at the Hustler Hollywood store in Nashville told police that a drunk guy entered the store after midnight Monday, grabbed a lingerie mannequin, took it into the parking lot, and, after a brief argument with the clerk, tossed it into the back of his truck and drove off. Police say they found the man, 55-year-old Christopher Wade, and the mannequin ... in bed together at a home in nearby Old Hickory, WKRN reports. The mannequin, which was missing an arm that Wade knocked off while allegedly stealing it, was wearing merchandise that pushed its value up to $5,000. Wade was arrested on charges of theft and criminal trespassing. (More weird crimes stories.)
