    Default Allen Iverson charged with vandalism and arson!! [APRIL FOOLS JOKE]

    Originally Posted by Yahoo Sports
    CLEVELAND, OH Charges are pending against Detroit Pistons guard Allen Iverson who allegedly broke into the Patio, Deck & Hearth Shop on Kinsman Road Tuesday night, set three fires, and caused more than $100,000 in damage.

    Shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday, the Newbury Ohio Police Department received a tip that there was someone inside the shop breaking glass. When officers arrived at the store, they observed Iverson fleeing the building.

    He is expected to be charged with burglary, vandalism and arson.

    "There are several floors damaged, window breakage, some computers have been messed up, doors pried open things like that," officers told the Cleveland Rain-Dealer Wednesday. "But after further inspection we noticed that the suspect really targeted the outdoor patio furniture section especially benches. He destroyed the shop's entire inventory of wood benches, aluminum benches, and even cement benches.

    Officer Ken Sharver added that based on his conversation with Iverson, the only motive he's been able to determine for the crime is the All-Star guard's disgust for all things people sit down on.

    Patio, Deck & Hearth Shop is a locally-owned business that offers one of the largest selections of quality indoor and outdoor casual furniture in Northeast Ohio. Formerly Western Reserve Fireplace and Patio, they have been furnishing customers' casual living spaces for over 25 years.

    In fact, rumor has it they once sold Mark Price a rustic Braxton Culler dining set.

    Just my personal opinion but I'm not a huge fan of doing April Fool jokes that are negative towards someone

    Seconded, in fact I don't like the fact that google bots search these forums and could pick up on the title.

    Probably not only should be locked but removed as well

    If I had the power it would have been gone already. Agreed.

    Change the title to say April Fool. That will hopefully help with the bot situation.

    Yeah this should be deleted. It's a joke, sure, but people and bots who just read headlines/thread-titles won't care.
