VIDEO: Penn State Rioter Tears Down Sign, Shatters Tailbone

It's not uncommon for college kids to try to steal street signs. Walk into the average dorm or college apartment, and chances are there's going to be a sign on a wall. Some attempts are better thought out than others, and this rioter at Penn State Wednesday night clearly had not concerned damn near any of Newtonian physics before hanging his full body weight off this flimsy street sign a solid 15 feet in the air.

There's a bonus video from a different angle of the news van getting flipped, but the gem here is this student clearly not realizing an eight-ounce sign and some very tiny screws cannot support a fully grown college student whose belly is full of what's likely low-grade grain alcohol (in laymen's terms, Riot Punch).
