    • June 15, 2006 -- This perp has a pet peeve - he was nabbed during a police chase after his dog bit him in the face. Robbery suspect Nicholas Galanis of Salt Lake City, Utah, was trying to elude cops by driving down a winding, bumpy, dirt road - but his part-pit bull pooch kept getting slammed into the front window. The dog "became so agitated that he bit his owner in the face," taking off part of his nose and ending the chase.

      • This is funny. I heard the report on the radio this morning.

        Nude Man Trying To Propose Runs Into Gunman

        POSTED: 6:54 am EDT June 15, 2006

        ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A marriage-minded man ran naked through his Michigan neighborhood, trying to show his hesitant girlfriend that taking risks is important.

        However, he got more than he bargained for when he ended up being chased and shot at.

        Police in Ann Arbor, Mich., said it all started when they were discussing marriage Wednesday morning and the woman said she wasn't sure she was ready.

        Her boyfriend tried to make his point about taking risks by jumping out the window and running naked through the neighborhood. But after jumping out of the window and running across the street, he found trouble.

        A couple strolled by and a man ordered the naked suitor out of his hiding place in the bushes and started chasing him, then shot at him.

        The naked man fell to the ground and suffered minor injuries.

        Police arrested the gunman on charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. But the naked man said he didn't want to press any charges. The naked man was not arrested.

        A detective said, "Just when you thought you had heard everything."

          A man sentenced to 18 years in prison for robbing an auto-parts store in upstate Rochester is suing two of the shop's employees for assault and battery and for causing him emotional distress. Dana Buckman says it was unnecessary for the two to beat him with a metal pipe after they chased after him and recovered the cash he had stolen at gunpoint. "The danger was past," said his lawyer. "These two employees took it upon themselves to go after Mr. Buckman after he left the store."
          The story is absolutely true, being from the area, Rochester has places that rival NYC for crime and violence. In fact since NYC has cracked down many of the criminal types have moved up here because it's less likely that they'll get hasselled by the police.

          • June 16, 2006 -- VAIL, Colo. When Jack the dog ran into trouble last month, he couldn't have had a better man around to help. Physician Dave Karli and his dog were out for a walk near their home in Edwards while a father and son were playing catch with a baseball nearby. Jack, a Weimaraner mix, went to get some baseballs on the ground and tried to get several in his mouth. One went down his throat and got stuck in his airway. Karli said he reached his hand down Jack's throat and was able to remove the ball. He was bitten in the process. After the ball was removed, Jack remained passed out. Karli did CPR on his dog for about 15 to 20 seconds until Jack regained consciousness. Chris Roth, a veterinarian at Eagle-Vail Animal Hospital, said he doesn't see a lot of owners having to do CPR on their dogs. "Not a lot," he said. "But, obviously, it can happen."

            • Drugs found stashed in Home Depot cabinets
              June 14, 2006

              SOUTHWICK, Mass. --For the fifth time in a week, a stash of drugs was found in a cabinet purchased at a Home Depot store in Massachusetts.

              A plumber in Southwick discovered 40 pounds of marijuana and three kilograms of cocaine stashed in a bathroom vanity he'd purchased at a Home Depot in Chicopee for a home renovation.

              Southwick Police Lt. David Ricardi said a second stash was found at the Chicopee store and at least two more were discovered at a Tewksbury Home Depot. Police found more drugs in a fifth cabinet, but Ricardi would not say where or when it was discovered.

              One of the Tewksbury stashes was discovered June 8 after a homeowner brought home a cabinet and found 50 pounds of marijuana.

              "It's a smuggling operation gone bad," Ricardi said. "Somebody owes some money."

              Tony Pettigrew, a spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Administration, confirmed Wednesday that his agency was investigating, but declined further comment.

              A statement from Atlanta-based Home Depot said the company was cooperating with investigators. The company declined further comment.

              Ricardi said the plumber discovered the drugs in Southwick on Monday after he bought the vanity. The man noticed the vanity top hadn't been included in the package and instead found two plastic bags containing the drugs stuffed inside. Ricardi said the drugs were worth $200,000.

                • WORLD CUP MADDNESS

                  Two sports fans jailed for life in Bulgaria's Pazardzhik prison have sewn up their mouths and are refusing to eat unless they are permitted to watch soccer's World Cup. The two inmates not only demand TVs in their cells but also unlimited supplies of coffee, tea and cigarettes. As for their stitched-up mouths, both left a small opening so they could smoke.

                    • June 19, 2006 -- Malaysian students claim to have set a new world record after 21 squeezed into a tiny Mini Cooper car. It took four minutes for the students to pile in - with two stuffed into the trunk. The car's doors were then shut and the students, from a college in Kuala Lumpur, sweated out the mandatory 20 seconds to make it into The Guinness Book of World Records.

"So I have piles of books, piles of newspapers," he said. "This is America. There's no such thing as the neatness police." But officials claim the apartment is a fire hazard, crammed floor-to-ceiling with "rubbish, debris, paper, boxes, bags and all manner of containers."
