  • November 5, 2003 -- David Alan Waters is a blooming idiot - all he had to do to stay a free man was plant 10 chrysanthemums in the yard of Minnie Becton, the 99-year-old woman whose home he had vandalized. But he didn't, and now the Memphis, Tenn., man has to serve seven months of what had been a two-year suspended sentence. While Waters insists he did play gardener, Criminal Court Judge Carolyn Wade Blackett scolded: "There is no reason for a 99-year-old woman in a wheelchair to lie about who she saw on her property."

    • WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - How much would you pay for a beer
      in Hong Kong? A New Zealand traveler paid 20,000 Hong Kong dollars
      (US$2,595) for his.
      The man later told his bank he thought he was paying only about
      HK$19 (US$2.45) for the single beer, and that he believes bar
      employees duped him by adding additional zeros to his tab and then
      pocketing a big tip.
      The case surfaced Wednesday in the annual report to Parliament
      by Liz Brown, New Zealand's banking ombudsman.
      The man, identified in the report only as Mr. B, asked his bank
      to stop payment after he returned to New Zealand weeks later. But
      the bank said "it could not intervene" because Mr. B had signed
      the credit card receipt and told him his dispute was with the bar,
      Brown said in her report.
      Mr. B could offer no evidence that the sales voucher had been
      forged, and it had not "obviously been altered," Brown noted.
      Brown, who mediates complaints between customers and banks, told
      the man to withdraw his complaint.

      • LONDON (Reuters) - A man who spent six days barricaded atop
        a construction crane in central London dressed as Spider-Man
        climbed down Wednesday.
        David Chick had dressed as his daughter's favorite comic
        book character to lobby against what he said was a legal system
        that kept him from seeing the girl.
        The stunt, near central London's Tower Bridge, caused
        traffic snarl-ups for days after police sealed the area for
        safety reasons.
        A police spokesman said Chick was arrested for creating a
        public nuisance after he climbed down before the Wednesday
        evening rush hour.
        London's Chamber of Commerce said the traffic cordon, which
        was lifted Tuesday evening, had cost businesses in the
        capital tens of millions of pounds.
        Chick, 36, was protesting to highlight the difficulties
        some separated or divorced fathers have in gaining access to
        their children. His friends say he has not seen his daughter
        for eight months.

        • CLARENVILLE, Nfld. (CP) - RCMP are hoping they can turn up a
          turnip thief who has stolen more than $500 worth of the crop from
          an area farm in recent weeks.
          Some time between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, the
          vegetable villain drove into a turnip field near Lethbridge, Nfld.,
          and pinched some of the plants.
          It was one of many harvest heists to hit the farm in the past
          six weeks and the fed-up farmer finally complained to police on
          Tuesday.
          In addition to the cost of the pilfered veggies, the remaining
          turnip crop has been damaged during the heist, police said in a
          statement.
          The RCMP appealed for help from the public to solve the crime.

          • November 6, 2003 -- Question: What do you call two lawyers caught naked in the laundry room of an apartment building where they don't live? Answer: busted.
            David Burleson and Todd Buss, both 40, were fined $200 after pleading no contest to disorderly conduct in Madison, Wis., but they have an explanation. The legal eagles say they got soaked while celebrating a University of Wisconsin football victory and were given permission by a building resident to come in and use the basement clothes dryer.Oh, by the way, cops say they were "extremely intoxicated."

            • Weenie Roast

              DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - There was a giant weenie roast on
              Interstate 380, but there was no mustard for many a mile marker.
              A truck carrying 43,500 pounds of Oscar Mayer turkey hot dogs
              caught fire about 10 p.m. Tuesday, said Trooper Tom Estrada of the
              Iowa State Patrol.
              Instead of the aroma of roasting meat, troopers and firefighters
              had to endure black smoke and the acrid smell of burning rubber.
              "Some type of mechanical problem caused a wheel to overheat,"
              Estrada said. "The driver pulled over and opened the hood of the
              refrigerator power unit. That exposed hot oil to the air and helped
              ignite the fire."
              The truck driver, Wayne A. Mathison, 60, of Cherry, Ill., was
              not injured.
              The northbound lanes of the interstate near the small town of
              Urbana, which is between Cedar Rapids and Waterloo, were closed for
              about three hours.

              • November 7, 2003 -- Jean Ridino turned into the Terminator when a man jumped into her Mercedes-Benz and tried to carjack it - she doused him with hot tea and bashed him with the mug."I said, 'Get out of my damn car now.' He never even bled. I thought he was a robot," said Ridino, 57, of Mashpee, Mass. Mark Corkery, 32, who allegedly had been trying to flee the scene of an accident, was arrested. "He had a bad day," Mashpee Police Chief Maurice Cooper said. "It was a comedy of errors on his part."

                • November 8, 2003 -- For more than eight months, Billie Jo Hawks shared a cell with female inmates at Kentucky's Meade County Detention Center. It was only after being transferred to the Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women - and facing a physical - that the convicted drug trafficker admitted he's a man. "Clearly procedures weren't followed" during the mandatory jail-admission strip search, said a state correction official.

                  • November 9, 2003 --Five cops in Austin, Texas, were busted for fishing at a nearby lake when they were supposed to be guarding a power plant from possible terrorism. A lieutenant, a sergeant and three other officers were disciplined for fishing on duty. The cops had been assigned to security patrol at Decker Creek Power Plant, but instead were fishing in Lake Walter Long on the plant's property.

                    • PARIS (Reuters) - A French hunter was shot by his dog after he left a loaded shotgun in the trunk of his car with two dogs and one of the animals accidentally stepped on the trigger, police said Wednesday.

                      The man, from the village of Espelette in the Basque region, was admitted to a hospital in the nearby town of Bayonne Monday with leadshot injuries to the hip.

                      "As he was driving along, one of his dogs accidentally set off the gun," said a police official.

                      My God, they can't even beat their dogs.

                      • HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Police in the Vietnamese capital have a
                        new gun in their holsters and it's got a colorful bang. They've
                        armed themselves with paintball guns to brand and track robbers and
                        illegal motorbike racers.
                        The guns, introduced Monday, will be used to pelt thieves and
                        racers with red, yellow and green dyes, said Tran Quoc Hung,
                        administrative head of Hanoi's police.
                        The guns have a range of 10 meters (33 feet) and will help
                        police to track fast-moving suspects on motorcycles who could
                        otherwise dart unnoticed into a sea of other bikes.
                        Robbery is not a major problem in Hanoi, but street racing on
                        motorbikes is becoming more common.

                        • Calif. woman sues over condom in her clam chowder
                          LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Waiter, there is something
                          worse than a fly in my soup.
                          A California woman who found a condom in her bowl of clam
                          chowder has sued the upscale restaurant that served it to her
                          -- saying she has suffered depression and anxiety from the
                          shocking discovery.
                          But an attorney for McCormick & Schmicks Seafood Restaurant
                          in Irvine, California, says the eatery has no idea how the
                          condom got into Laila Sultan's food.
                          Sultan, 48, and her three companions are suing the
                          restaurant for negligence and intentional infliction of
                          emotional distress in a case that is expected to go to trial
                          early next year.
                          "I thought it was calamari or shrimp or something so I
                          chewed one more," Sultan told local KCAL-TV Monday. "It felt
                          rubbery. I told my friends, 'My God, there's something in my
                          mouth."'
                          Sultan said she spit the offending object into a napkin and
                          at first thought it was a latex glove. Then her friend realized
                          what it was.
                          "I said, 'Oh, my God' and ran into the bathroom with
                          another friend of mine and I started throwing up," she said. "I
                          threw up everything I ate there, every single thing, I threw up
                          in the bathroom."
                          But Patrick Stark, an attorney for McCormick & Schmicks,
                          told the Los Angeles Times that its staff had no idea how the
                          condom got into the chowder, adding: "It's as big a mystery to
                          us as it is to anybody else."
                          "We are going to argue at trial there is absolutely no
                          evidence to suggest the restaurant was the source of the
                          condom," he told the paper. "Either it came from (the four
                          women) or it was thrown in as a practical joke by another
                          patron at the restaurant."

                          • NY children play with missile launcher from Iraq
                            NEW YORK, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Schoolchildren found a U.S.
                            Army issued missile launcher from Iraq in a garbage can in
                            Brooklyn on Monday, but it was inoperable and no one was
                            injured handling it, police said.
                            Police said the missile launcher was brought back to New
                            York from the war in Iraq by an unidentified member of the U.S.
                            armed forces who apparently gave it to a friend, who
                            subsequently dumped it in the trash.
                            A man brought it into a police station in the Bensonhurst
                            section of Brooklyn on Monday morning after seeing
                            schoolchildren playing with it, police said.
                            Police described the launcher as a one-shot light anti-tank
                            weapon, but gave no further details. It had already been fired
                            and could not be used again.

                              BERLIN, Nov 10 (Reuters) - A German with no handcuffs to
                              hand captured a burglar by clamping his teeth onto the man's
                              thumb and dragging him off to a neighbour's house.
                              "He couldn't use the phone himself...so the neighbour called
                              the police," read Monday's statement from police in Duesseldorf.
                              The thief received treatment for his injured thumb.

                              • BERLIN, Nov 10 (Reuters) - German smokers fed up with the
                                eye-catching health warnings now required on cigarette packets
                                sold in the European Union have begun covering them with their
                                own messages rich in gallows humour.
                                "Begging cigarettes from others can lead to sudden death,"
                                reads one black and white warning, imitating one of the 14
                                EU-mandated health messages required since last month.
                                "Move out of the way! I'm headed for the graveyard" and "I
                                smoke because you stink" are two other warnings that German
                                smokers are sticking on their packs.
                                EU rules dictate that warnings such as "Smoking Kills" must
                                now cover at least 30 percent of the front of each packet and 40
                                percent of the back. Smoking-linked diseases kill more than
                                500,000 EU citizens each year.
                                Other messages mock EU warnings that smoking can lead to
                                impotence: "The cigarettes contained in this package can lead to
                                a renewed erection," reads one. "Hey, do you want to jump in the
                                sack with me?" is another popular choice.
