Man has embarrassingly good excuse for why cops thought he was loudly murdering a lady.

Man has embarrassingly good excuse for why cops thought he was loudly murdering a lady.

Australia is a big, empty country, but even there people will hear you if you scream loud enough—and a lot of people called the cops on a Sydney man, claiming they heard furniture crashing, a woman screaming, and a man yelling "I'm going to kill you!" Just to be clear—those are all great reasons to call the cops. That said, the man had a perfect explanation for his behavior, which the Harbourside NSW police reprinted in its embarrassing entirety. 

21/11/2015 Wollstonecraft 2.00am. Police received numerous calls in relation to a violent domestic, with reports of a woman screaming hysterically, a man yelling “I’m going to kill you, your dead! Die Die!!”, with the sounds of furniture being tossed around the unit. Numerous police cars responded to the address and began banging on the door. A man answered the door, out of breath and rather flushed with the following conversation:
Police: “Where’s your wife”
Male: “umm I don’t have one”
Police: “Where your girlfriend”
Male: “umm I don’t have one”
Police: “We had a report of a domestic and a women screaming, where is she?”
Male: “I don’t know what you’re talking about I live alone”
Police: “Come on mate people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit”

At this point the male became very sheepish.

Police: “come on mate, what have you done to her.”
Male: “it was a spider”
Police “Sorry??”
Male: “It was a spider, a really big one!!
Police :”what about the women screaming?”
Male: “Yeah sorry that was me, I really really hate spiders”
As it turns out the male was chasing a rather large spider around the unit with a can or mortein. After a very long pause some laughter and a quick look in the unit to make sure there was no injured party (apart from the spider) we left.

Well that’s it for the week, hope your having a great weekend.

Time again for the news...... Once again we had another Drug Dog operation in the North Sydney CBD and once again we had...

Just a reminder to the public that bug spray and exterminators are both quiet, effective ways to deal with a spider, and also that cops will tell everybody and laugh at you if you're a wuss about spiders.
