    Man who hid knives in pants stabs self

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A man who hid hunting knives in his pants to try to steal them from a western Michigan store tripped while fleeing and stabbed himself in the abdomen, police say.

    The suspect was hospitalized after Monday night's attempted theft from a Meijer Inc. superstore in Grand Rapids and is expected to face a misdemeanor shoplifting charge, police say.

    The wounds did not appear to be life-threatening, The Grand Rapids Press reported.

    The man had put about $300 worth of hunting knives in his waistband, police told WZZM-TV. Police say he tried to leave the store, but Meijer employees confronted him and a scuffle followed.

    The man then fell and was stabbed by the knives he had hidden in his clothing, police said. They said it happened about 5:40 p.m.

    "The man was taken to the hospital," said Meijer spokesman Frank Giuliano. "We are cooperating with the investigation by police."

    Police said the suspect has a record of retail fraud.

    "I saw a man laying down on the mat by the carts, a knife by him with blood on the full blade of the knife," shopper Heather Dodd told WOOD-TV. "It was not a dull kitchen knife or a sharp butcher's knife, it was somewhere in between.

    "Someone was holding him down so I just walked around him, grabbed my cart, made sure everything was OK and got out of the way."

    i like when things like this happen..people acting stupid, and something goes wrong, thats something thats entertaining to me
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    I do too.
    There was a story in the news today about this lady who was caught in connection with a theft/burglary.
    I guess police were able to identify her by her broken id card that was stuck inside the door lock.
    It obviously broke off while she was trying to pick the lock.

    Did I read this here? This seems to be the place where I'm getting most of my news lately.
