Snacking shoplifter burned by fiery chili peppers8/21/2012
Serial shoplifter Marcus Banwell made an incredibly bad snack selection when he popped a fiery Scotch bonnet chili into his mouth mid-heist in Bristol, U.K. Scotch bonnets are known for their incredible fire power, clocking in at a blazing 100,000-350,000 scoville units (the rating used to measure hotness) as compared to just 2,500-8,000 for jalapeno peppers. Banville quickly felt the heat and was tearing up and writhing in pain outside the shop before he could even break open the milkshake or fruit juice he'd also swiped, and giving the proprietor plenty of time to nab him. Cops on the scene found a stolen clarinet, the drinks, and four more incendiary Scotch bonnets stashed in Banwell's pocket. [Source]
