Police called over man’s battle with a spider


Australia is not the best place for arachnophobes.
Police officers in Sydney, Australia were called to the scene of a possible domestic violence incident i.e Police called over man’s battle with a spider.

The bizarre case started when concerned neighbors reported hearing a woman’s screams coming from a nearby house along with a man yelling “I’m going to kill you, you’re dead. Die! Die!”

When officers arrived and knocked on the door however they were greeted by a flush-faced man who seemed to be out of breath and was very confused about why they were there.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about, I live alone,” he said.

When the policemen pushed for him to explain what all the commotion was about however he eventually came clean about the entire incident.

“It was a spider,” he confessed. “It was a spider, a really big one!!”

“What about the woman screaming ?” the officer asked him.

“Yeah sorry that was me, I really, really hate spiders,” he replied.

“After a very long pause, some laughter and a quick look in the unit to make sure there was no injured party (apart from the spider) we left,” the officers wrote on their Facebook page.
