    The man has told some witnesses he's acting on a dare.

    Police said the man is white, slender and in his mid 20s.

    • Baggy Pants Banned; Mayor Says 'Cover Up'
      Town Council Call Saggy Britches Obscene

      POSTED: 12:59 pm EDT June 13, 2007

      DELCAMBRE, La. -- Overly saggy britches are obscene, the Delcambre Town Council says. So does Mayor Carol Broussard, who said he will sign an anti-sag ordinance passed unanimously this week.

      The new indecent exposure ordinance in this Cajun-country town of about 2,000 carries penalties of up to six months in jail and a $500 fine for being caught in pants that show undergarments or, in the mayor's phrase, "private parts."

      "I don't know if it will do any good, but it won't hurt," said Delcambre Councilman Albert Roy, who introduced the ordinance. "It's obvious, and anybody with common sense can see your parts when you wear sagging pants."

      The meeting Monday night packed the small trailer that has been Town Hall since Hurricane Rita swept in six feet of storm surge on Sept. 24, 2005.

      Low-hanging, baggy pants have become a fashion fad, mostly for young men in the hip-hop culture. Several residents objected that the ordinance targeted blacks.

      Broussard denied any racial motivation. "White people wear sagging pants, too. Anybody who wears these pants should be held responsible."

      Although Roy, who is black, introduced the ordinance, he said a $500 fine is outrageous: "I think it should be something like $25."

      The ordinance states, "It shall be unlawful for any person in any public place or in view of the public to be found in a state of nudity, or partial nudity, or in dress not becoming to his or her sex, or in any indecent exposure of his or her person or undergarments, or be guilty of any indecent or lewd behavior."

      The law applies to women as well as men, the mayor said Wednesday. "If you expose some of your privates, the crack of your behind, if somebody feels insulted they should press charges. If you're offended by it, we want to straighten that out."

      The clause about "dress not becoming to his or her sex" doesn't forbid cross-dressing, Broussard said. "A dress, I wouldn't find that obscene. As long as he covers himself and it's not too short."

      The ordinance isn't needed because the state has an indecent exposure law, resident Sylvester Harris said during Monday's meeting. But town attorney Ted Ayo said the measure expands on the state law by adding underwear to the list of forbidden exposures.

      "This is a new ordinance that deals specifically with sagging pants," Ayo said. "It's about showing off your underwear in public."

      Town resident Adam George had another objection. "It's just going to be harassment," he said at the Monday meeting. "People that don't like me are going to call and complain on me and say I've got saggy pants. I'm going to have to pay to bond out, even if I'm right."

      Police Chief James Broussard said he didn't have a problem with George's pants, which hung below his waist but were covered by a long T-shirt.

      "It's not like I'm showing my privates or anything like that," George said. "It's my boxers."

      Broussard's public advice for people who like their pants to hang low: "Just wear it properly. Cover your vital parts. I mean, if you expose your private parts, you'll get a fine. If you walk up and your pants drop, you get a fine. They're better off taking the pants off and just wearing a dress."

          • Woman Injured By Flying Sturgeon In Florida
            Second Injury By Flying Fish On Suwannee River

            UPDATED: 10:24 am EDT June 12, 2007

            ROCK BLUFF, Fla. -- This fish story is a real knockout.

            A woman boating on the Suwannee River in Florida over the weekend was injured by a sturgeon that leaped out of the water.

            Tara Spears, 32, was knocked unconscious but state conservation officials said her injuries weren't life-threatening and she'll be OK.

            This has happened before on the same river. In April, a leaping sturgeon severely injured a woman riding a personal watercraft. She lost a tooth and a pinkie and surgeons had to reattach three other fingers.

            Sturgeon have hard plates along their backs. They can grow up to 8 feet long and up to 200 pounds.

                No joke there. Although I've always viewed spiders with mixed feelings. On one hand, they do as you indicate, eat insects. On the other hand, if you have lots of spiders, you've probably got a problem with other bugs.

                Which brings me to a question (only because I've never bothered to look them up): I've seen the carcass of a spider that was light brown/white striped. Kind of looks like the same markings that you would see on a Lionfish. The one carcass I had in my garage spanned my palm, thats legs included, so about 2-3 inches and a body about the size of a peanut. Anyone have any idea what this spider is?

                • Racers Urged To Drink Beer, Not Water

                  POSTED: 7:29 am EDT June 25, 2007
                  UPDATED: 7:56 am EDT June 25, 2007

                  SUAMICO, Wis. -- Only in Wisconsin do beer and exercise mix.

                  Several hundred people laced up Sunday morning for a two-mile charity race in which suds were the refresher of choice.

                  Competitors in the 19th annual Beer Belly Two might not be considered athletes, but they know how to have a good time. "My kids are running it, so hopefully they're already at the finish line and I'll see them in an hour or so," said racer Doug Burmeister. "You know, there's a lot of beer stops."

                  The race has raised more than $350,000 for local charities since its inception.

                  Beer Belly veteran Mike Marin said this is one workout he can really get into.

                  "This way the wife allows me to have a couple of beers because you're doing something," he said. "A little exercise, you kill two birds with one stone."

                    Alligator Found Outside Reston Home

                    UPDATED: 10:35 am EDT June 28, 2007

                    RESTON, Va. -- Animal control officers in Fairfax County have recovered a stray alligator from outside a home in Reston.

                    Officers found the alligator Monday evening in the yard of a home in the 1800 block of Dasher Lane.

                    Authorities said the animal is approximately 2 feet, 6 inches long and weighs about five pounds.

                    It was in good health, according to authorities.

                    After being caught, the alligator was brought back to the shelter.

                    Officials planned to transfer the alligator to a licensed facility that can provide it with proper care.

                    Fairfax County ordinances prohibit the keeping of any wild or exotic animals and outline the prohibition of crocodilians, including but not limited to alligators, crocodiles, caimans and gavials.

                      The next time you fly, your safety could be in the hands of an air traffic controller wearing a dress -- and he's a guy.

                      Some controllers have been protesting a government dress code, by wearing women's clothing to work. Union spokesman Doug Church said the controllers are showing how ridiculous the regulations are because they don't bar men from wearing dresses. Shorts, jeans, T-shirts and halter tops are on the banned list.

                      The unionized controllers are also upset about changes in schedules, work breaks and pay issues.

                      • Given only two choices, a man in a dress or a man in a halter top, I would have to put my vote in for the dress. Maybe the ban on halter tops isn't such a hard rule to live with...

                            VANCOUVER - A clerk at a 7-Eleven was robbed at knifepoint twice in four hours -- by the same man.

                            The clerk was working at a Vancouver store when the man walked in and tried to buy cigarettes, but had no money. He left and returned late Wednesday night with a knife. He demanded cash and the clerk gave him some money. Police were called to the scene and investigated.

                            About four hours later, the man returned again with a knife and robbed the store a second time.

                              POSTED: 1:22 pm EDT July 9, 2007

                              MANCHESTER, N.H. -- A Manchester man was arraigned on robbery charges Monday after police said he disguised himself as a tree to rob a bank over the weekend.

                              Related Content: Man Robs Bank In Tree Disguise | Images

                              James Coldwell, 49, was arraigned on one count of robbery. Police said that he robbed a Citizen's Bank branch Saturday morning and duct-taped tree branches to his head and body in an effort to disguise himself.

                              The robber allegedly demanded cash from a teller and walked out. Witnesses said it happened very fast.

                              According to court documents, Coldwell told police that he had been drinking coffee at Lake Massabesic when he decided to rob a bank. He said that he got the branches for his disguise at the lake, police said.

                              Investigators said that Coldwell ordered a teller to fill a bag with money, but a dye pack placed in the bag exploded at the scene. Police said they also found leaves and duct tape in Coldwell's car.

                              No one was hurt in the incident, and no weapon was shown.

                              Coldwell was arrested Saturday night after police received a tip from a viewer who saw the surveillance video.

                              Coldwell was ordered held on $10,000 bail.

                                Reuters Published: Tuesday, July 17, 2007

                                BERLIN -- A German bus driver threatened to throw a 20-year-old sales clerk off his bus in the southern town of Lindau because he said she was too sexy, a newspaper reported on Monday.

                                "Suddenly he stopped the bus," the woman named Debora C. told Bild newspaper.

                                "He opened the door and shouted at me 'Your cleavage is distracting me every time I look into my mirror and I can't concentrate on the traffic. If you don't sit somewhere else, I'm going to have to throw you off the bus."'

                                The woman, pictured in Bild wearing her snug-fitting summer clothes with the plunging neckline, said she moved to another seat but was humiliated by the bus driver.

                                A spokesman for the bus company defended the driver.

                                "The bus driver is allowed to do that and he did the right thing," the spokesman said.

                                "A bus driver cannot be distracted because it's a danger to the safety of all the passengers."
