Man sells drugs in parking lot of police station

Just to be clear, I have no experience in this but it would seem to me that if you were going to sell drugs you DON'T do it in the parking lot of a police station. Either you're stupid or you've got some massive balls.

Anthony Sears of Cleveland, OH thought that the streets were too dangerous, so he sought a safer place to do his business. Sears was in a car in the parking lot when an off-duty cop noticed him. When he saw that the cop saw him, he jumped out of the car and ran down the street. Backup was called and the cops found Sears sitting on someone's front porch. He told the cops he was waiting for his girlfriend to pick him up. However, the owner of the house had no idea who Sears was.

Police found the gun and crack cocaine nearby. Sears admitted it's hard to stop selling drugs.

"I am not a user of crack since November, but the fast life of money is hard to give up," he said.

Florida man arrested, drank wine as he rode electric store cart

Joseph, Leonardi of Florida went to his local Publix store. When he got there, he rode one of those electric motor carts (that are for people who need them), and drank blackberry wine while eating a chocolate candy bar. He put the wine bottle back on the shelf half empty.

An employee was watching him and asked if he drank the wine. Leonardi said "What are you going to do, call the cops?" Yep, that's exactly what the employee did.

Cop robs bank, uses police vehicle as getaway car

Juergen Richter, a 55-year-old detective, from Germany robbed a bank without wearing a mask. He waved his policed-issued gun and drove off in his unmarked patrol car. He walked out with close to $12,000, but his image was caught on CCTV.

Did he think because his car was unmarked that he'd get away with it? Did he not think that banks have CCTV? I wonder if he wore his uniform with his name badge. Now THAT would be funny.

White House apologizes for low-flying plane

With 9/11 still fresh in the minds of Manhattan residents, Monday didn't seem like a photo-op to them. A Boeing 747 was flying low above the city with two fighter jets behind it. Now, if you didn't know any better, you'd be scared too? So, when the rest of us found out that it was a photo-op that had been pre-approved by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), needless to say they were a bit ticked off as well as the President.

Apparently, they were trying to update their file photos of Air Force One. They should have issued a statement/warning or something telling the people "hey, this isn't real so please don't freak."

Fire starts with spider chase

I can totally sympathize with people who have a deep hate for spiders. I grew up with poisonous ones and we learned to be careful. It didn't stop me from hating them though. I once made my little sister pay me money to kill one that was in her room! Although, I've never tried killing one with a lighter as a man from Portsmouth, England did.

He tried to kill a spider with a lighter. BUT there was a crack in the wall, so the flame ignited the material behind the wall. Soon after, flames were reaching their way to the roof. When firefighters arrived, they found the guy trying to tame the flames with a garden hose.

W. Va. mom charged with trying to sell baby son

West Virginia resident, Rebecca Sue Taylor, 19, tried to sell her 5-month old son to a woman for $10,000 so she could get an apartment. She then dropped the price to $5,000.

If convicted this mother of the year is convicted of the felony charge of offering the purchase or sale of a child, she could face a fine of $100 to $2,000 and one to five years in prison.

Let's hope she gets the extended stay in Casa de la Bars with their luxurious orange jumpsuits.

Paramedics accused of lying in Worcester death

Last year Boston resident, Charles F. Rondeau, 48-years-old, was in the process of having a heart attack. His wife was at work, and went home as soon as she found out. When she arrived, two paramedics were helping her husband walk down three flights of stairs. Later at the emergency room, Mr. Rondeau was pronounced dead. Doctors said he had an “extensive anterior wall myocardial infarction,” which to use regular folk is a massive heart attack.

Apparently, when the paramedics helped Mr. Rondeau walk down the stairs they broke a serious rule. Mr. Rondeau's daughter got a copy of the written report from the two paramedics, and read where they said the patient was carried down the stairs. She called in and said that wasn't true because she was there and saw the whole thing. She never got a call back. So, the Rondeau family decided to take their case to a lawyer.

This in turn set off a four month state Department of Public Health investigation which uncovered WAY more violations.

Thousands of baby kangaroos to be clubbed to death in new Australian government ruling

Last time I check this is the 21st century right? This isn't the 18th century. Australia thinks we're in another century though. Due to a severe drought, kangaroos are making their way into residential areas. So, how does the government decide to handle this? They let you go out and kill them! Mind you, there's already a commercial hunting industry that kills four million kangaroos a year. What's bad is the government's guidelines on how to exterminate little joeys (baby kangaroos). Read the article for their horrible process.

Teacher accused of starving cats: 'I lost track of time'

Let me first say that when I lose track of time, I lose about a few hours while I'm at work or it might be a Saturday afternoon. The main culprit for me losing time is shopping. BUT, now that I have a dog to take care of, my world revolves around this little furry, energetic, bouncy, four-legged creature. That isn't the case with Allison Dinsmore, a teacher from Florida.

Dinsmore left her apartment and her two cats in early February (no exact date was given). She left food, water, and a clean litter box and she intended to return in a few days. Ok, that's fine. My cat back home can do that although she'll get mad if you're gone for a week. But by February 23, her apartment complex manager came knocking for rent money, but discovered her dead cats. A veterinarian determined that the cats were starved to death.

What was her excuse? She lost track of time. Now she's up for felony animal cruelty charges and which she should be!

Woman breaches Asbo over noisy sex after just two days

This is just a funny story. Read on.

Caroline Cartwright, 47-years-old, of the U.K. was slapped with an Asbo (Anti-Social Behavior Order) banning her from making too much noise during sex. Uh huh, there was no typo.

Shouldn't they be glad the woman still has an active sex life with her husband?! It's not like she's going out somewhere else to get satisfied. She's doing the horizontal mambo with her husband. Apparently, her neighbor, who is partially deaf by the way, hasn't had a proper night of sleep in two years!

Woman charged with DUI twice In 3 hours

How stupid can you get? A Connecticut woman was pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. She was given a field sobriety test, and was found to be over the limit. At the police station, she was told someone could pick her car up for her. So, a friend picked her car up and also picked her up from the station.

On the way home, the same cop pulled over her car and guess who was behind the wheel?

Miss California could sue for discrimination

By now I'm sure you all have heard about the controversy surrounding Miss California (Carrie Prejean) during the Miss USA pageant. During the question period, Perez Hilton, a judge for the pageant asked a question about gay marriage. Miss Calilfornia's answer got some boo's from the crowd and some cheers, but you could obviously see the disappointment/anger on Perez Hilton's face. See the video for yourself.

It's been all over the internet, and a lot of people are speaking out against the contestant. She admits that her answer cost her the crown, and now some legal analysts are saying she could sue for discrimination!

Virginia DOT uses zig zag lines on purpose

Why is the Virginia Department of Transportation painting zig zag lines on the road? The zig zag lines are painted on a stretch of 500 feet of road to get drivers to slow down in a heavy pedestrian and bicycle area. It's the DOT's strategy to get drivers to slow down.

Of course it would slow drivers down because when they come up on the zig zag lines, they'll be wondering "what the?!" I know I would. I'd be looking around for TV cameras or something to see if someone was playing a joke.

A representative from the DOT says it's "low cost," but I'm wondering how low cost is it? You do have to shell out money for this, and don't you think they could've used this money towards something more productive instead of drawing on the road?

Thief robs X-rated store with syringe

A woman in Melbourne, Australia hit up an x-rated store for her second robbery of the night. You're probably thinking she used a toy gun, pointed her finger through her pocket to pretend it's a gun, a real gun, knife, or a baseball bat. You're wrong.

Guess what she used. Can't guess? Well, she used a syringe. Police don't know if it's a used syringe or if there's any possibility that her victim could contract anything because they can't find her.

She browsed around the x-rated store for about 30 minutes waiting for the rest of the customer to leave. Then, she went up to the employee demanding the money. A struggle broke out and the employee ended up being pricked with the syringe. She's had blood tests, but it'll take three months before results come back.

Will you be ordering from Domino's Pizza afer this?

A couple of Domino's Pizza employees were fired after a video was posted on YouTube of them acting like fools and just being plain disgusting.

The man was videoed putting cheese in his nose and pretending it was a booger. Then he put the cheese in a sandwich that was to be delivered to a customer. He also farted on some salami and put it in the same sandwich. There are other acts caught on video as well.

This makes me wonder about what goes on in other restaurants. These idiots were just stupid enough to post it online and get caught. What about others who don't video themselves or put it online? Hmmmmm.

Woman dies after trying to break up sword fight

Men who are in their late 30s and 60s should act mature right? Not these two. Christopher O. Rondeau, 39, and Adolf Stegbauer, 69,were in a sword fight and Franziska Stegbauer, 77, tried to break it up but was fatally stabbed in the process.

Now, I'm wondering did they think they were in The Highlander, Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, or some other TV show? What were they doing fighting in the streets at 1am? Shouldn't they both be in bed? Rondeau should've been trying to get some sleep before work, and Stegbauer should've been in bed because of his age.

Cops don't know what was the cause of the fight, but they do know that Ms. Stegbauer is the grandmother of Rondeau.

Ocoto-mom to apply for welfare

Nadya Suleman, the octo-mom, is thinking about doing what we all knew from the beginning was going to happen--she's going to apply for welfare. Basically, she's going to be a leech on society at the tax payers expense.

Suleman is thinking about applying for federal assistance through the WIC (women's, infants, and children program) so she can get formula for her little army. The WIC program provides federal grants to states for food, health care referrals and nutrition education for low-income women and children up to age 5 who are found to be at nutritional risk.

Want an alternative to botox? Try snake venom

The latest weapon in battling wrinkles seems to be snake venom--temple viper venom to be exact. The venom acts like botox in that it paralyzes the muscles.

Scientists manufactured a synthetic version of the poison called Syn-Ake to be put to cosmetic use. Syn-Ake is put in creams to help with the battle against wrinkles.

I don't know about you, but growing up in an area populated with all kinds of poisonous snakes (rattlesnakes, coral snakes, cottonmouth/water moccasins, and copperheads) you learn to stay far away. Besides, snake poison (I'm not gonna use the prettified word 'venom' because it IS poison) is designed so the snake can digest it's prey. Of course there are different types of snake poisons, but still. I don't know if I'd feel comfortable with putting poison on my face. Some celebrities (Gwyneth Paltrow and Hillary Swank) use the poison though. It just sounds crazy.

Farting leads to stabbing

Several friends were staying in a hotel in Waco, TX. Nothing wrong with this picture, right? They were doing their one thing: one was taking a shower, two were in the room eating, and the others were outside yacking on their cell phones. Nothing wrong yet, right?

Well, one of the guys that was eating got the farts and the guy who was eating with him didn't appreciate it. Now, typically guys joke about farting and have farting contests, so why would this one do what he did I have no idea unless the farts made the wallpaper peel off the walls. A knife was pull out and the farting guy was stabbed because of his stinkiness.

Man pleads guilty in fraud against U.S. Veterans Affairs Department

Who really thinks they can get away with committing fraud against the government? Well, AIG and Wall Street think they have, but that's not the point. No one can really pull the wool over the government's eyes except in the movies. Even then, the guys are always caught in the end.

An Idaho man conned the U.S. Veterans Affairs Department out of $1.5 million ever since 1976. He served in the Air Force from 1969-1975 and retired in 1976. The year he retired, he claimed that he had no use in either leg anymore. So, the government started paying him disability.

Read the rest of the story here to see what this guy did and how he got caught.

$1,200 in Victoria's Secret lip gloss stolen

The Victoria's Secret store in a Nanuet Mall in New York had $1,200 worth of lip gloss stolen. Apparently shoplifting has been on the rise lately (which I'm sure is due partly to the economy). But, 74 tubes of this lip gloss sprouted legs and walked off. The article says that this Victoria's Secret store has become popular with shoplifting in the area.

Need for bathroom gets man felony charge

Joao Correa was on a Delta flight from Honduras to Atlanta when he really needed to go to the bathroom. Apparently the dinner from the night before wasn't sitting well with him.

He was sitting in coach (cattle class), but the aisle for the bathroom for that section was blocked by a beverage cart. The only available bathroom was in business class. He made his way up to the business class bathroom when the flight attendant blocked his path with her arm. This is where you get two different versions of the story depending on who you talk to. He says he leaned on her arm for support. She says he bent it backwards and twisted it.

The pilot was called out and gave Correa permission to use the business class bathroom (because you know people in business class don't want coach class koodies).

Correa was arrested once the flight landed in Atlanta and was slapped with a felony assault charge.

Man cleans with gasoline while smoking

We all see the signs at gas stations that you should NOT smoke while you're near the pumps. So, what makes you think you can do this at home? Everyone knows that it's the fumes that's combustible. So, you should not have any kind of fire anywhere near gas.

However, that didn't stop a Wisconsin man from doing it. The man threw his lit cigarette into a pile of clothes and cushions that were soaked with gas. The fire in his apartment forced his neighbors to evacuate their homes. He didn't even bother pulling the fire alarm! He just yelled "fire" a couple of times and then walked to the local police department to ask for help.
