And finally… incy wincy prosecutor

An assistant prosecutor in West Virginia, USA has been suspended after pulling a gun in his office and threatening to shoot at fake plastic spiders.

Chris White told employees that he is “deathly afraid of spiders” before threatening to shoot at the spooky Halloween decorations which had been scattered around the office.

He was suspended by Logan County Prosecuting Attorney John Bennett several weeks after the incident because shaken employees were still upset.

The spider decorations have since been removed, the Associated Press reports.
