05/23/2017 - As the Padres took on the Diamondbacks at Petco Park on Sunday, cameras caught a drone crashing into an empty seat between two fans. Flying an aircraft, including drones, around MLB games is prohibited. Drone operators who endanger people or property can face a $1,437 fine and federal or local prosecution. However, these regulations do not take effect until one month from now. Local authorities say that there will be a fine from the FAA and possible legal ramifications for the flyer of the drone. No one was injured and the flyer claims it was an accident.
05/23/2017 - Nuns are supposed to be loving and compassionate people. They take an oath to always too good. But what these nuns in the town of Citrus Heights in California were doing definitely goes way against that! Residents have noticed that many neighborhood cats are coming up missing. After a little snooping around, one woman noticed that her neighbors, two nuns, had set up traps in their back yard to catch the cats who they assumed were strays. They would then put them in their car and relocate them to a different part of town. The nuns said that the cats they relocated didn't have tags on, leading to their assumption. But the residents aren't satisfied with that explanation. An investigation is now underway which could lead to criminal charges against the nuns. Source: Fox 40 Sacramento
05/23/2017 - Drivers are unsung heroes. Whether they're actual taxi drivers, or they work for services like Lyft or Uber, they should be treated with respect. After all, they're the ones that are carting you around when you can't do it yourself for whatever reason! So even if you're drunk as a skunk, you need to be cool to your driver. This woman in St. Petersburg, Florida definitely was NOT cool to her Lyft driver. Back on April 29th, Lyft driver Michelle Jennings picked up the rather intoxicated 28-year-old Stephanie Young. Young was a problem from the beginning. First, she pulled off part of the seat cover of Jennings' car and used it to blow her nose. She then told Jennings that she did that because she was not offered something to blow her nose with. But it seems like she never asked. Not surprisingly, Jennings told Young that her ride was over, even though they were still a half-mile from the destination. Young didn't take kindly to this and began spitting on and hitting the driver. Jennings eventually flagged down a security officer in a parking lot and ask for the police to be called. As a result, Young has been banned form using Lyft again and could face charges for her actions. Jennings ended up with a bloody nail and a few patches of hair missing because of the whole ordeal. So please. Be cool to your driver! They're working for you!
05/23/2017 - In Winston-Salem, NC, a car was found submerged in an apartment complex pool and the driver was nowhere to be found. Once removed, the driver, James Bradley Poe, made his way back to the scene, revealing himself to police. " I wasn’t under any intoxication," Bradley claimed, saying that he thought the car was in park and was not able to save it in time. Bradley is now facing charges for fleeing the scene and not having insurance on the vehicle. Locals were glad to discover no one was harmed. And Bradley says that he’ll be paying for the damage to the pool.
