For those of you that aren't regular readers, here at The Art of Being Conflicted, our two reporters look for the "odd or weird" little news stories that you might of missed due to the over-reporting of the BIG stories. Every Friday, Reporter Cheryl P. and Crabby Pants try to find a little something unusual in the news.
Upon occasion, we give out awards here at TAOBC for the more inventive creative stories that make our Friday post.
|The Westminster Dog Show, also, gave out an award this week to a little cutie named Banana Joe.|
Drinking, Yes...Thinking, No
According to police, April Cassidy Velez drove to the Hamden Police Department last Saturday to bail out her husband. Her husband, Edwin, had been arrested earlier in the day for Driving Under the Influence.
She was arrested. for driving while intoxicated. Both her and her husband will be back in court later this month.
The husband and wife that drink together get to go to the clink together.
Police backup was called to help secure the building and try to retrieve the firearm. Neither the gun nor the burglar were apprehended. The manufacturer of the machine had to be called to try to retrieve the gun.
Officer calling in: "Please send backup, my gun has been stolen. How? Well...here's the funny part."
Cats and Dogs
|Lisa isn't a girl you want to mess with|
Bolt has multiple scratches to his snout. Lisa is facing multiple charges.including: attempted first degree murder, aggravated battery, battery of a law enforcement officer with a deadly weapon (is that the cat?), injuring a K9 officer (that is definitely the cat), and 5 counts of resisting arrest.
For all the people that say cats serve no purpose...you are wrong!!
Was That Your Fanny Ringing?
Over the course of the last couple of years, I have done a number of these stories of people smuggling things in various body parts and usually there is a clear reason why the perpetrator hid the items. Oh, I am not saying that it was right or they weren't idiotic...I am just saying, you could kind of understand their motivation.
BUT (perhaps that is a word I best avoid), this week we have a prisoner in Welikada jail in Colombo, Sri Lanka who was hiding his cell phone in his rectum.
1. The guy was caught because his butt started ringing.
2. He had also hidden a hands-free headset up his hiny as well.
Seriously...what good is the hands-free head set going to do you? AND unless there is a charger somewhere up in his business the whole effort is for naught. But maybe there are other things hidden in his fanny pack.
