Police are attempting to locate a man whose medical treatment has made him radioactive, prompting warnings to police officers not to handcuff themselves to him when he is apprehended.
Police have been warned not to handcuff themselves to a fugitive whose medical treatment has made him radioactive. Thomas Marius Leopold, 42, didn't appear at a court hearing in London this week on child pornography charges. His lawyer Jeannie Mackay told the court his treatment for a thyroid problem made him radioactive. "Please warn officers that when he is arrested he might be radioactive," Judge John Price said. "This is not a joke." "

Oh, come on! The level of radioactivity from medical injections is minute and completely contained inside the patient's body. There is zero risk to a person standing next to the patient, or even hugging the patient. You might not want a blood transfusion from him, but the rest of this story is nonsense. I checked my calendar. We're a few days away from April 1. Either this story was a huge mistake or else it got submitted a few days early.
