A prisoner in the Asian country of Sri Lanka gave new meaning to the term "booty call" when he tried to smuggle a cell phone into jail inside a body cavity – only to have his plan crushed when someone called ... and his butt started ringing off the hook.
The 58-year-old convict shoved the phone and a headset into his rear after he got a sneaky hand-off from a visitor. It's not the first time an inmate at the prison was busted for a similar offense: Back in November, two dozen people were killed in a riot that was sparked by a similar confiscation.
We're guessing the prisoner who set off that incident feels like a real butt-head now. (Huffington Post)
Not That Kind of Working Girl
Government officials in Germany have issued an apology to the family of a German teenager after offering to provide her with a good-paying job – at a house of prostitution.
The 19-year-old was not being asked to work in the establishment's trenches, but was offered a gig working as a bartender for customers waiting around for an appointment with one of the professionals.
The young woman said, "I was looking for a decent housekeeping job – not working at a brothel bar. I was totally shocked when I read the letter. My mother even started screaming out loud when she read the letter." (Orange News UK)
Drunk Mom on Ice
A Florida woman is facing child endangerment charges after leaving her small children alone so she could spend some quality time with another friend – Jim Beam.
Alisha Esch admits that she left her little ones, aged three years and nine months, to fend for themselves while she went to a friend's house to get wasted. The 20-year-old, who's not legally allowed to drink alcohol, defended herself by saying that she went home twice during her binge to check on the kids and get them ready for bed.
Her dad, who dropped by unexpectedly to say hello, called cops after finding the tots in distress. He told authorities his daughter had a drinking problem and needed help. He has temporary custody of the children. (WPTV)
Magnet and Steal
A cop in Illinois ran into trouble during a burglary investigation at a doctor's office after he encountered an unexpected accomplice – the MRI machine tucked away in a back room.
The officer was poking around in the office when he walked into the room where the machine was housed, and had its magnetic field pull the gun right out of his hands. Because there's no way to turn off the magnetism, the gun stayed stuck in place and became too dangerous to move, leading officials to evacuate the entire building.
The burglary investigation continues while the machine's makers figure out how to get the weapon dislodged. (NBC Chicago)
