It's the thought that counts, right? This is 'Crappy News' for Wednesday, February 14th.

Bellevue, WA- A man was arrested after a fender-bender turned into road rage.

Police responded to a car wash on Sunday after the suspect pointed a gun at the other driver in the parking lot.

The 40-year-old man refused to get out of his car, made disparaging comments about the victim’s ethnicity, and threatened to kill police. The man also punched a cop when officers tried to pull him out of the vehicle. Police finally subdued the man with a taser.

The funny part? The suspect drives a car with a vanity plate that says "DIRTBAG." Seems fitting.

Derbyshire, England- A woman tried to avoid hiding in a laundry basket.

Officers came to the woman's house last Saturday after she failed to appear in court. The lady panicked and attempted to hide in her bathroom. Police might have missed her...if it wasn’t for the complete set of legs and torso poking out from underneath a laundry hamper.

They really saw through that disguise. Get it? Because it's a laundry hamper and it has holes...

Duncan Robb wanted to do something nice for his girfriend--take her to see her favorite band, Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Robb saw tickets for $42 apiece and jumped at the chance to surprise his honey and take a romantic trip to Belfast for the concert, which happened to be Valentine's Day weekend. Much to the couple's dismay, it turned out that Robb didn't buy tickets for the Red Hot Chili Peppers...but the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, the "most famous bagpipe band on the planet."

Despite the goof, the couple went along to the Red Hot Chilli Pipers gig on Saturday evening anyway and had a good time. [Newsweek]

Kudos to the girlfriend for taking this in stride. The dude's heart was definitely in the right place. But the real band should do SOMETHING for them, right?
