Connolly who was taken into custody by Ann Arbor police after he totaled his SUV, which appears to have been university-issued. In addition to ruining a parked car, Connolly reportedly resisted arrest and was visibly intoxicated after leaving the vehicle. On top of all that, he was found barefoot and bloodied after the hit-and-run.

Michigan lawmakers considering bill to arm teachers

  Michigan lawmakers considering bill to arm teachers Michigan lawmakers are considering several gun-related measures in the wake of a deadly shooting at a Florida high school, including arming teachers and confiscating guns from those with mental illness.One bill would permit teachers and staff to carry firearms, the Detroit Free Press reported.President Trump has been strongly calling for arming teachers and said that if a teacher inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., was armed on Feb. 14, then the gunman would have never attempted the massacre that left 17 dead.

According to the official police report, Connolly told one officer that he would "put him in a wheelchair," and proceeded to scream profanities at lab technicians and other law enforcement personnel. According to one witness, he had to be restrained to a chair after wildly swinging at an officer and striking him in the arm.

After being taken to the hospital due to his injuries and getting handcuffed to his bed, Connolly allegedly grabbed one officer by the throat. Shortly after, he bit a UM emergency technician on the arm. (He did not break skin, according to the victim's account.)

Father of boy with Down syndrome suing Boy Scouts

  Father of boy with Down syndrome suing Boy Scouts The father of a boy who has Down syndrome is suing the Boys Scouts of America for blocking his son from becoming an Eagle scout and revoking his merit badges. Logan Blythe has been a scout through the National Parks Council in Utah. His father, Chad, says the 15-year-old has advanced because the council has made accommodations when necessary.He had planned to create kits for special-needs babies for his Eagle project when the family learned the national organization voided every merit badge he obtained.The family sued the Boy Scouts and the Utah National Parks Council for "outrageous and reckless conduct.

The strangest part in all this, however? The university has not made the decision to fire Connolly.

Connolly is the second major figure around the Wolverines' football program to be arrested for DUI during Jim Harbaugh's tenure as head coach; associate AD Jim Minick was rung up back in 2015. Michigan football's lack of action after these details surfaced is not a good look for the program, which needs to prove that it has zero tolerance for such dangerous behavior.

But take a step back for a moment-- is this story the craziest thing you've read today, or the craziest thing you've read this month?
