Berserker's toilet-lid bash
A Las Vegas man is in jail for attempted murder. His weapons of choice: his hands and a guitar. And a toilet lid.

The problems for Ronald Hetzel, 41, began when police received a complaint about a man throwing things around in his own house. According to KNTV-TV, when they arrived on the scene, Hetzel was sitting on the curb shirtless and screaming.
They tried unsuccessfully to calm him down but, when that failed, they attempted to restrain him.
Hetzel was having none of it. He broke free of the police, jumped a back fence into a neighbour’s garden, broke through a window and went in.
There he was confronted by the owner of the home, and, The Las Vegas Sun reported, started a fight with him, bashing him around the head with a wooden guitar and a toilet lid. He also tried to strangle the homeowner “multiple times”.
Police caught up with Hetzel 20 minutes later but went nowhere near him. Instead they unleashed one of their fearless K9 dogs, who took him down without any bother.
Hetzel is now in deep s**t and his future is, it seems, down the toilet.
