prankster strikes: florida couple trashes hotel room
on the drive with kenny jones – we disscussed a prank that had a florida couple trash their hotel room. lisa kantorski took the call from the person who claimed to be a front-desk clerk about a gas leak in her family’s hotel room.
she frantically relayed the information to her husband, mark, an indian river county deputy. he followed the caller’s instructions … and smashed the window of his room with a toilet tank.
“when i broke the window, i got suspicious,” mark kantorski said. “it didn’t seem right, but [lisa] was panicking, so i continued.”
Just before 7 a.m. monday, the kantorskis had no idea they were the latest victims of a prankster, or pranksters, whose tricks are sweeping the nation. the unknown perpetrators dupe otherwise rational people into doing outrageous things, including driving trucks through storefronts and breaking hotel windows, ostensibly to test fire alarms.
this got us talking about pranks that we have pulled in the past. have a listen to some of the past prankster like endeavours of the drive contingent…
not as glamorous as driving a semi into a hotel lobby but some of those pranks have got some real teeth!
some of the dastardly things the pranksters have done:
In Arkansas, a caller posing as a sprinkler-company employee persuaded a motel employee to do more than $50,000 in damage to a motel as part of a “test” of the motel’s emergency alarms.
At a Comfort Suites in Daphne, Ala., a caller ordered a guest to turn on the sprinklers for a fire that wasn’t. The result: more than $10,000 in damage.
In Nebraska, a Hampton Inn employee was convinced by a caller to pull the fire alarm. The employee was later told that the only way to silence the alarm was to break the lobby windows. The employee enlisted the help of a nearby trucker, who drove his rig through the front door.
at what point do you realize that have a 18 wheeler drive into you work place is not the smartest thing to do……WAIT! don’t answer that.
