Unless he threw some garlic into the blaze, I'm not quite sure how this was going to help. A Florida man, so worried about vampires, burned his Daytona Beach home to the ground on Sunday.
The 64-year-old started off the evening arguing with his wife, then escalated to smashing windows while shouting, "The vampires are going to defend themselves."
Melvin Weaver then threw ceiling insulation on the stove, grabbed a knife, and started banging on the neighbor's doors.
It turns out that police were called earlier in the day by Weaver's wife, but the cops found he was acting rationally at the time.
Should the police have taken the wife's worries into better consideration? What's the craziest incident to happen recently in your town?
