Some people really don’t take break-ups that well…
A Wyoming man recently broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and did all of the following:
1) Cried in every room (sounds weird but we guess he had to let it all out).
2) Tore up some of her clothes.
3) Urinated in a bottle of Kendall Jackson, half and half creamer, and a pitcher of Crystal light.
Yup, it was that serious. For him at least.

Home builder Richard Ted Bloem faces up to 17 months behind bars when he is sentenced today following his no contest plea to a single charge of second-degree home invasion.
The plea came in January shortly after Kent County Circuit Court Judge George Buth has dismissed one of two charges for the home builder accused of entering his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and urinating in her food.
Bloem, 46, plea to the home invasion charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years, but his unblemished criminal history likely means Bloem will be sentenced to no more than 17 months behind bars.
Bloem is a Wyoming native who currently lives in Saugatuck.
Defense attorney David Dodge described the plea as “a mutually disastisfactory outcome.”
According to police, Bloem went into the apartment of the 32-year-old Grandville woman with a key he had made at Lowe’s without her knowledge on July 2.
After spending some time crying in several rooms, he tore up some of her clothes and then returned later to urinate in a bottle of 2009 Kendall-Jackson Riesling, some Land O’ Lakes half-and-half creamer and a pitcher of Crystal Light in the refrigerator.
The jury trial was cut short by the plea, but, a Michigan State Police expert testified that testing done on the creamer indicated the presence of urine.
However, Buth told Assistant Kent County Prosecutor Blair Lachman that he had not presented evidence sufficient to show that urine is a harmful substance.
Dodge planned to have Spectrum Health Toxicologist Ben Kuslikis testify that there is no harm that comes from drinking urine and in some cultures, urine drinking is common and considered healthful.
Dodge also planned to dispute the State Police Lab findings saying the testing was incomplete.
The victim could give a statement prior to sentencing.
Besides the fact that this guy sounds like a total creep … you’ve gotta give him props for creativity.
