A heroin user has been sentenced to a year in prison after he tried to rob a UK power station last year, only to suffer severe injuries when he urinated on one of the transformers.
According to Fox.com, 36-year-old Michael Harper and his 50-year-old accomplice, Richard Boyce, had broken into the power station to steal metal and take heroin. The fact that he was under the influence of drugs was probably why he decided it would be a good idea to mark his territory at the scene of the crime.
Unfortunately for him, the resounding blast only left him with severe burns, knocked out power to some
2,000 homes and caused $42,000 in damage to businesses. His accomplice left him for dead and tried to drive away, but was found later with burnt hands. Harper sustained burns to his body and face, but survived.
An English judge sentenced Boyce to four years in jail, but reduced Harper's sentence to one year because of his medical ordeal.
