An Illinois man is in deep doo-doo after assaulting a fellow transit rider with the wrong kind of stocking stuffer – a tube sock filled with his own feces.
The unidentified man, whose face was captured by surveillance tape, allegedly approached the woman as she was texting on her phone and socked it to her – with disgusting results. She says, "He had a sock full of his poop on me. It was in my face, my hair, my clothes."
She says she has no idea what was behind the attack ... which would have been far less gross with a lump of coal in his stocking. (Huffington Post)
This Bud's ... Not For Gym Class!
An intoxicated man must have been feeling the spirits of the season ... when he wandered into a Florida middle school gym class asking students if they had any beer they'd like to share.
Anthony Edward Warn, who "appeared to be harmless," still alarmed both students and teachers by appearing unannounced in the middle of P.E. He was ordered to leave the grounds, but reverted back to his own days as a student and opted to go stand in the corner – where he was eventually arrested for trespassing.
The incident came one day after area educators were given instructions on how to deal with intruders in their classes. (Gainesville Sun)
Syrup Theft Didn't Stick
Canadian authorities just landed one sweet victory with the arrest of three men tied to a 10-million-pound maple syrup heist in Quebec.
Last summer’s theft of 10,000 barrels of syrup spurred an international investigation leading to this week’s arrest. The loot is valued at $30 million as part of the Federation of Maple Syrup Producer’s highly prized “International Strategic Reserve.”
According to Outside magazine, the theft put a dent in the global supply, as Quebec produces 80% of the world’s maple syrup supply. The stash is currently under police guard, and the three face charges of theft, conspiracy, fraud and trafficking in stolen goods.
A woman in China has been fined 800 dollars for naming her dog after her neighbor – and then constantly yelling at the poor pooch.
Hu Lin had been arguing with her neighbor, Wang Sun, for the last six years over a building permit.
She was apparently so upset with him that she decided to name her dog after him – just so she could insult him.
"She named her dog Wang and then whenever she saw me she would start swearing and insulting the dog using my name," Wang said in court. "Everyone knew what she was up to."
The judge agreed that Hu’s actions had caused Wang “mental anguish” so he ordered her to pay the fine and apologize. (Digital Spy)
