    Man Starts Fire In Yard, Clobbers Firefighter With Shovel For Trying To Put It Out

    If you're most people, when a firefighter shows up to extinguish a blaze on your property, your first instinct would be to thanks them -- not to hit them with a shovel. It just goes to show that 44-year-old Floridian Gregory Sean Turner is not most people. Turner was arrested earlier this week on charges of Aggravated Battery on a Firefighter with a Deadly Weapon (Shovel) and Preventing or Obstructing Extinguishment of a Fire.

    Meet the Crovel, a Slightly Insane Multitool

    As the advertisement for the Crovel helpfully points out, you could shell out $550 to buy an axe, a crowbar, a shovel, a hoe, a hammer, a thingie with prongs, a knife, a cleaver, another kind of knife, a machete, a bottle opener, and a grappling hook ... or, you could just buy a Crovel for $85. Can't argue with that. The fearsome multitool's name is a combination of 'shovel' and 'crowbar,' which undersells the 13 tool functions the 10 gage steel Crovel (design patent pending) can supposedly perform.

    THE EDGE: The strength and sharpness of the edge gives you the ultimate cutting, chopping, sawing surface that will keep its edge even if you lose yours. EXTRAS: The handle is 19 inches hardened goose neck crowbar with 1.5 x .75 in hammer face on the edge to add additional strength and function. 550 paracord is wrapped on the hand to add grip strength and to give you 15 ft. of life-saving material that can be used in thousands of different ways.
