In the News

Police in Independence, Missouri shot and killed a life-sized concrete alligator lawn ornament last week when they surrounded it and fired. The homeowner was working in the garage and came out to see what the commotion was. Police have apologized.

Police in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida are investigating how a .22 handgun ended up in the bottom of a box of toiletries given to a first-grade teacher by a student's grandmother.

High school kids across the UK were given a math test in which one of the questions was unanswerable. The test-givers were forced to contact colleges and universities to explain that there might be a problem with scores.

A restaurant owner in Chicago who hires ex-felons had to go to court to call his establishment Frank's Felons.

This is a good one. Police in Daytona arrested a man who was bicycling down the street at 2 a.m. carrying a 59-inch television balanced between his body and the handlebars.

A man wanted in Delaware was arrested after he used a loud voice to talk on the phone to brag about his escapades. Guests at the hotel where he was staying turned him in.

A Florida farmer decided to let his escaped bull "calm down" before trying to recapture it, but police thought otherwise, and employed eight deputies and a helicopter to corner the animal, sedate it, and tie it to a tree. He was presented with a fine but fought it all the way to the attorney general's office which today dropped all charges.

That's all for now folks. Remember, it's crazy out there!
