It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all…

Getting annoyed already? Well, you’re not alone, and neither is this next dumb criminal. Police in West Hartford, Conn., arrested the 46-year-old man on August 21 after he threatened to castrate an ice cream truck driver. According to Sgt. Jeff Rose of the West Hartford Police Department, the truck was making its way through a residential street when Flynn suddenly ran out of his house and planted himself in front of the slow-moving vehicle. Flynn was allegedly holding a pair of hedge clippers that he waved at the 17-year-old driver. He ordered the driver to turn off the truck’s jingle and to leave the area. “The truck was playing ‘It’s a Small World,'” Rose said. “[Flynn] later told us he hates ice cream truck music.” As the driver drove away, Flynn ran alongside the truck and made cutting motions with his hedge clippers. Flynn was later arrested and charged with threatening and breach of peace. He was released on $500 bond.
