A couple in Canadian are facing domestic assault charges after apparently fighting over the last beer and attacking each other with chips and dip.
Police were called to a home in Lindsay, Ontario, where there had previously been 15 times for domestic disputes. When officers arrived, they found a 39-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman covered in chips and dip. They both face charges of domestic-related assault and are set to appear in court on March 28th. Their names were not released. (Huffington Post)
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
So much for saving the life of a fellow classmate. A Florida high school student who wrested a loaded gun away from another teen on a bus ride home was slapped with a suspension in return for his good deed.
The 16-year-old student, whose identity is being kept private for safety reasons, finagled a loaded .22 caliber revolver from the suspect, a football player, who threatened to shoot a teammate over an argument with his friend.
Authorities confirm that the suspect was pointing the gun directly at the other student, threatening to shoot him. That's when the teen tackled the suspect and took the gun away. The next day all three were suspended.
School authorities say the high school hero was suspended "for his role in an incident where a weapon was present." (NY Daily News)
Making a Mountain Out of a Pop-Tart
A seven-year-old in Baltimore was suspended from school after putting too much pop in his pop-tart – by allegedly shaping it into the form of a gun!
Second-grader Josh Welch was slapped with a two-day ban when a teacher saw him playing with his food and took note of the questionable shape of the breakfast pastry. While Josh insisted he was trying to create the image of a mountain, the school official says that he pointed it at a classmate and said "bang, bang" – a noise not commonly made by hills or mountains.
The parents of every student received a letter warning them about the incident and saying that "a student used food to make an inappropriate gesture."
That probably rules out bananas as a snack from here on. (New York Daily News)
The Hole Truth?
A Florida man who was busted on charges of exposing himself while his friend's teenage daughter was in the room insists that he wasn't being lewd – just trying to do some "on-the-fly" repairs to his trousers.
Roosevelt Allen Douglas was allegedly at the girl's home watching a movie when she says he reached into his pants to pleasure himself. She says he then called her over to show her x-rated messages that had been typed into his cell phone.
Douglas denies doing anything nasty and says that he merely wanted to fix a hole in his slacks that he hadn't noticed before. He insists the girl just happened to see messages he'd sent to someone else.
He's charged with lewd and lascivious display. (Gainesville Sun)
