Buck Wolf’s Weird News Central: Murder, Mayhem, And McNuggets

TAMPA, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most of us don’t know what’s in a McNugget, but whatever it is, it makes some people batty.

Earlier this week, Latreasa L. Goodman made headlines when she called 911 to complain that her local McDonald’s was out of McNuggets.

But that’s hardly the craziest crime involving the McNugget.

Reporter Buck Wolf of About.com’s Weird News Central points out that last year, Floridian Christie Murphy was waiting in line at Mickey-D’s when she accidentally shot herself in the thigh with a pistol.

Wolf says, “She told doctors that she was upset – not because she almost killed herself, but because she never got her 10-piece McNugget meal.”

But the oddest nugget crime occurred on July 18, 1984, when James Oliver Huberty went on a killing spree with a shotgun at a California McDonald’s, killing 19 people and wounding 19 others.

Three years later, Huberty’s widow sued the fast food giant, claiming that MSG in the massive amount of McNuggets he consumed drove him to a murderous rage.

Wolf adds, “She was laughed out of court. The judge clearly wasn’t lovin’ it.”
