He also reported that Ariel Castro ( the Cleveland sex dungeon guy) took a plea deal to get life in prison plus 1000 years. Andy played clips from the hearing, it’s classic. I also came in studio for Bizarre News: a 22 year old lotto millionaire, what Giuliani thinks of Anthony Weiner, vandalism at the Lincoln Memorial, a Florida man arrested for bestiality, and an eccentric billionaire’s plan to build a real life Jurassic Park.
