World’s Dumbest Teen Thief Gets Arm Stuck in Vending Machine

Teen Gets Arm Stuck in Vending Machine While Trying to Steal Soda

On Saturday, yet another person fell prey to modern convenience when he became hopelessly stuck in a vending machine. But this California teen wasn’t an innocent victim like this similarly-trapped two-year-old. Instead, the 17-year-old was trying to steal a soda at the time. That’ll teach ya.

The teen — a student at Sweetwater High School in National City — allegedly reached inside the receiving slot of a Coke machine and attempted to snag a drink. He became hopelessly stuck, however, and had to be cut free in a rescue effort that took approximately an hour.

After he was removed from the arm-chomping machine, the teen was treated for scrapes, then promptly arrested by police, who say he may face petty theft charges and be forced to foot the bill for fire and medical services and damage to the machine. Ouch! That’s one costly soda.
