According to several eye witnesses, a man identified as Gregblood of MY Town, Minnesota, recklessly swerved across a busy street while riding his bike, nearly causing the driver of a Cadillac Escalade to hit the brakes.
“The dude seemed to have spotted the cute stand over there,” said the driver when questioned by police, “and I was worried that my five-ton vehicle might run him over as I sped up. He was very rude, and it would have served him right to get run over.”
Investigators later learned that the Girl Scout cookie stand was built by the Girl Scout and her mother. The Girl Scout’s father was manning the cookie stand at the time, while the Girl Scout and her mother were dancing in the boulevard, trying to attract attention to their stand. The father gave a very different account than the Cadillac driver.
“That guy was SOOOO cool. He was our first bike customer of the season and he was super-friendly. Plus, he bought three boxes of cookies and put them in a gray bag that was attached to his bike.”
Gregblood was contacted at his home several hours later. Here is his statement in its entirety: “YOU try to pass up something like that!”
Then he abruptly hung up.
