First on the list today is a story out of Panama City, FL that a husband called his wife at her work. Wifey said she couldn't talk as she was busy being a waitress at the Waffle House. Husband guy didn't take that well and thought he would drive on over to the Waffle House and kill her. His weapon of choice was his pickup truck.
This might not have been the best way to settle the argument. Charles O'Bryan was charged with attempted murder.

Drive Through Part II
A NYC garbage truck dangled from the third floor of a building in Queens. Firefighters removed the injured driver who was taken to an area hospital with back and neck injuries. No explanation was given as to what the circumstances where that resulted in the accident.
Definitely made a wrong turn. RECALCULATING!
Drive Through Part III
The husband was in the car... HMMM...how could she of not gotten the right house?
Planes in the News, too
Gerard Depardieu couldn't wait any longer to use the loo. The actor was thrown off a Paris to Dublin CityJet flight on Tuesday after a fellow flyer claimed he stood up and relieved himself while yelling: “I need to p***.”
Cabin crew refused to allow him to go the restroom as the plane was awaiting take-off.
The flight was delayed for more than two hours.
Probably peeing in full view of a plane full of passengers isn't the most brilliant career path ever taken. I wonder if the delay was covered by any one's flight insurance? It definitely wasn't weather related.
Planes and Pugs
Another milestone for a California Pug. This week Otis made another jump with his owner. Otis, a ten-year-old pug hailing from Galt, Calif., made his 64th jump (tandem, of course) with his owner, Will DaSilva, on Monday afternoon. "He's just like a first-time skydiver," DaSilva says "He's all excited about it, gets nervous at the door just like all the rest of the skydivers, and then once he gets out he's just having a ball. He's just like a dog with his head out the car window.
A Love Story
Roy Fitts was doing 10 years in an Oregon prison for attempted murder. Jessica was doing time for bank robbery. They met on a prison pen pal site and fell in love, got married in the slammer and upon release from prison wanted a fresh start in Los Vegas.
Roy, however, was on parole and didn't the hassle of talking to his parole officer about his impending relocation. So he and his pregnant bride, Jessica, decide to steal a car and head for the Vegas.
The first of many problems with their plan was they decided the best way to get reliable transportation was to steal it. After shooting the owner of a van and leaving him by a highway, they were on their way. The police didn't take kindly to their methods of obtaining transportation and started pursuing them. After a high speed chase, the police placed stop sticks across the roadway.
The couple had to ditch the van and make a run for it. As luck would have it they found an old man in a pickup truck that was to become their new ride.
The chase became far easier for the cops as the Fitts tried to drive in 1st gear and continually stalled the engine. Neither knew how to drive a stick shift.
I guess they will be back to being pen pals in the near future.
