In today's news roundup: a man who thinks he has the biggest penis in the world gets busted for showing it to kids, an arrest is made in the Heathrow Lounge shooting, an accident at the Red Bull Flugtag left a woman with a broken back, and a rare virus has infected 5 percent of the population of Key West.
Matthew Magnus claims to have a really, really big penis, and he sure is proud of it. In fact this Saturday he went around asking people, "Have you ever seen the biggest penis in the world?" Regardless of whether they wanted to he allegedly showed them anyway, whether they were adults or children.
In fact Hallendale Police claim he pulled the stunt on a group of children under 16. When they ran away he found another group of kids to flash.
When they went to arrest Magnus they found him, unsurprisingly, naked in his apartment. There were also baggies full of cocaine, as well as dog feces, urine and trash throughout the apartment. He was arrested and charged with two counts of exposure of sexual organs, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. [NBCMiami]
