Man Arrested for Assault for Throwing Bedbugs into City Hall Office

Bed Bug Terrorism?
Bed Bug Terrorism?

You can’t fight city hall—at least not by dropping off bed bugs. That’s the lesson recently learned by a 74-year-old man in Augusta, Maine, whom officials charged with misdemeanor assault and government obstruction.

Charles Manning was apparently upset about a bed bug infestation and troubled by a lack of help from local officials. He walked into the Augusta City Center holding a container of more than a hundred live bed bugs, emptying them onto a clerk’s counter. Manning said he wanted them to experience bed bug problems first-hand to feel his pain.

While we can’t condone his actions, it’s easy to feel for Mr. Manning or anyone else with struggling with a bed bug infestation. Just take a look at these photos of bed bug bites.
