Man with 0.00 blood alcohol content charged with drunk driving

By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A man was slapped with a drunk driving charge despite the fact that the alcohol test came back showing no alcohol in his blood.

64-year-old Jessie Thornton of Surprise, Arizona, said police told him that they could tell he was drunk just by looking at him.
Thornton said that at night, he runs errands and goes to the gym, but swimming in the gym’s pool that night could have led to the driving under the influence charge.

"The officer approached me and said: 'I can tell you're driving under the influence by looking in your eyes,'" Thornton said that the officer told him.

Thornton said that his eyes might have been red because he just got out of the LA Fitness where he was swimming in the pool.
"I took my glasses off and he said: ‘Your eyes are bloodshot.’ I said: 'I've been swimming at LA Fitness' and he said: 'I think you're DUI,'" Thornton said.

"The officer said: 'Well, let's do a field sobriety test.’ I said, 'OK, but I have bad knees and a bad hip. I am having surgery in two days,’" Thornton said.

Medical documents showed that Thornton was scheduled for hip replacement surgery two days after the incident.
Thornton said he was placed in handcuffs and was forced to sit on the road despite his medical condition.

"I could not even sit on the floor like that and they knew it. I was like lying on the ground, and then they put me in the back of a van. When I kindly asked the officer to move the seat up because my hip hurts she told me to stop whining," Thornton said.
According to police documents, Thornton was taken to police headquarters, where he took a breath test.

The test, according to police documents, returned with a blood alcohol level of 0.00.
"Yes, I did the breath alcohol test and it came back zero, zero, zero," Thornton said.

Thornton, who is a former firefighter, has since filed a lawsuit against the police for $500,000.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Man arrested after killing dwarf by spiking his beer with anti-depressants

Jason Wood 
By: Sarah Weiss

A man was arrested and charged with murder related charges after killing his dwarf friend by spiking his beer can with a bottle of anti-depressant medication, according to court proceedings in the United Kingdom.

Now, the man faces jail after being convicted by a jury for spiking the beer of his friend as a joke.
Lee Webster, 26, of Gravesend, Kent, put a lethal dose of 27 mirtazapine tablets in the beer of 4-foot Jason Wood, 30, when he left the room to go to the bathroom during a drinking session.

Wood said that his beer taste funny when he returned, but Webster told him to keep drinking.
Three hours later, Wood was dead. Webster did not reveal that he had spiked the drink with the 30mg pills in Ramsgate, Kent, until a month later, when he confessed to his father.

He also told his sister Stephanie that he had spiked the drink because he thought it would be funny.
The autopsy revealed that Wood, who weighed just 84 pounds, had a large dose of mirtazapine inside his body, which would be fatal in others as well.

Webster also said that he had previously taken 14 or 15 tablets of mirtazapine and they just put him to sleep.
Webster denied the murder and an alternative charge of administering poison or noxious substance to endanger life.
However, a jury in Maidstone Crown Court took less than an hour to convict him of manslaughter.

(Scroll down for video) The father, who lost custody of his children after naming them after Nazi leaders, announced that his fiance is pregnant, and that he is planning to name the child Eva Braun or Rommel, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Nazi Heath Campbell, who proposed to Bethanie Rose Zito, 22, on Monday, is fighting for visitation rights to see his youngest son, Hons.

The new baby will be the fifth child of the 40-year-old Holocaust denier, who lives in New Jersey.
Zito, who has a tattoo that says "Property of Heath” said: “If it's a girl, she will be named Eva Braun. If it's a boy, I do not know what I am going to name him, but I'm thinking Rommel.”

Campbell’s previous four children with former wife Deborah are Adolf Hitler Campbell, 7, JoyCeLyNn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6, Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell, 5, and Heinrich Hons Campbell, 18 months.
The older three children were taken into state custody in 2009, after a store refused to decorate a birthday cake with the name of his eldest son, Adolf. His youngest son, Hons, has been taken into state custody hours after his birth in November 2011.

The future father said he has plans in place to ensure that the State does not interfere when his new child is born, saying: "There is no way in the world they are going to find out where this child is.”

By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) The U.S. government decided to launch an investigation into web giant Google after the company has announced that it is purchasing the Israeli mapping company “Waze”, the government said in a statement.

Google Inc., the owner of the largest search engine in the world, confirmed that he has been contacted by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission with respect to the acquisition of mapping-application Waze.

Google said this month it was buying Waze in a deal that will give it new tools to help users navigate traffic with smartphones.
Google is facing regulatory scrutiny worldwide as it expands its product line and moves into new areas such as mobile technology.

The company fought for regulatory approval in the U.S. and other countries for its $12.4 billion acquisition of phone-maker Motorola Mobility, which became part of Google last year.

The Waze purchase was valued at about $1.1 billion, a person familiar with the matter said earlier this month.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Man kidnaps girlfriend’s children then asks for $100 ransom

Cody Lee Panther 
By: John Roberts

A man was arrested after he kidnapped his girlfriend’s children and held them hostage.

Cody Lee Panther, allegedly kidnapped the children ages 2 and 4-years-old, and then demanded $100 in order to return them.

Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma were called after the mother said her 29-year-old boyfriend took her children without permission after an argument. Panther reportedly demanded a payment of $100 in exchange for the children. Panther, was arrested on two counts of child kidnap after he allegedly took the children from his girlfriend’s house to his apartment during an argument. He refused to return them without money.

Panther sent a text message to the children’s mother asking for $100 in exchange for the children, according to Officer Leland Ashley. Police recovered the children from Panter’s apartment. The children were unharmed and were returned to the mother. Panther was taken into police custody. His bail was set at $50,000.

In another incident, a man stole his daughter’s baby at birth, told the mother that the baby was stillborn, and then sold the baby. The baby was bought through Facebook by Amit Kumar, a New Delhi, India businessman.

The grandfather, Firoz Khan, believed he was helping his daughter when he stole and sold his grandson. Khan wanted his daughter, who divorced last year, to get an abortion when she became pregnant, but after she refused to get an abortion, he hatched an evil plan.

He stole the baby at birth when the mother was sleeping and sold the baby to a hospital nurse, who then sold the baby on Facebook. The sale was apparently part of Khan’s attempt to facilitate the second marriage of his daughter.

Khan, 47, of India, along with three others were arrested this week after the newborn was sold on Facebook. Feroz, who lives in Ludhiana city in the northwestern state of Punjab, allegedly abducted the baby from his daughter Noori Khan, at the hospital, shortly after birth, then he told his daughter that the baby was stillborn.

The grandfather sold the baby to a hospital employee for 45,000 rupees or $830. The nurse then sold the baby on Facebook for $14,800. “It makes me mad to hear that the father did this to his own daughter and grandchild. If the father honestly felt that this was best for his daughter then why sell the baby to a stranger for money instead of finding a good home for the baby,” Child advocate Sneha Verma of Haryana, India told YourJewishNews.com after hearing about the police investagation of the kidnaping.

Noori filed a complaint with the police that her son had been kidnapped. After investigating, police found the baby in the house of New Delhi businessman Amit Kumar, who bought the baby through Facebook. The baby was reunited with his 20-year-old mother.

Man shoots his stepson because he is a moocher

William Calvin Crow 
By: Debbi Gross

No parent likes to be taken advantage of by a lazy child, but one father took his anger to a whole new level.

An 87-year-old man of Fort Myers, Florida, was arrested after he shot his stepson because he was fed-up with his stepson’s behavior.

William Calvin Crow claims that his stepson is a moocher, who is also addicted to drugs. Instead of throwing his son out of his house and stop enabling the man from mooching off of him, Crow decided to shoot his son. Crow was arrested and faces charges of conspiracy and weapons possession, in the shooting incident.

Luckily, his 54-year-old stepson Craig Barton, made it out alive and was rushed to the hospital. Barton told police that Crow approached him, pulled out a .25 caliber pistol and fired several shots in his face and neck.

Barton tried to grab the gun from Crow after being shot. The two got into a fight. Barton was finally able to grab the gun and threw it into the yard. Both survived the incident and were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital for treatment.

According to the police report, Crow claimed that he shot Barton because “he was tired of Barton being a moocher and was angry by his stepson’s heavy drinking." Now, that he is in jail, he won't have to see his stepson sitting around the house doing nothing.

Canadian woman discovers her husband is an ex-con from the U.S.

Sheri Brown with husband Timothy Szabolci 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A woman thought she was married to a retired doctor until she found a video of him online.

Timothy Szabolci was looking for a second chance in life after serving time in U.S. prison and being deported to Canada.

His plan backfired after his wife found out about his criminal background through a video she found online. Sheri Brown of British Columbia, is a Canadian real estate agent. She was shocked when she discovered her husband was not the retired psychiatrist, who he claimed to be, but rather a criminal from the U.S.

Brown fell in love and married Timothy Szabolci, the man she thought was a retired psychiatrist and a former Canadian Air Force pilot. The two met, and they got married just four months after their first date. "He was a gentleman, and he always opened the car door for me. He made dinner for me every night. He was just loving and caring," Brown said about her husband.

It was not until the unpaid bills started piling up that she realized that something was not right. Szabolci explained that his accounts were frozen so Brown started to support him. She paid all their bills. After spending about $50,000 Brown decided to Google his name.

While doing some research, she found a story on CBS that aired in 2007 about a man by the name of Andrew Szadolc, who was arrested on charges that he had worked as a psychiatrist without a licence. Although his name was different then the man she married, Szadolc looked exactly like her husband.

Szabolic had been running a pain management clinic in Texas, and was arrested for impersonating a doctor and practicing without a license. He was convicted of stealing about $30,000, and was sentenced to five years in prison in October 2009. However, after a year, he was paroled and deported to Canada. As of now, his probation is up, which means that he can return to the U.S. at any time.

"It was very difficult to see a video of my husband, with a different name, to be arrested and sent to jail in Texas," Brown said. Brown was distressed to learn about her husband’s past and has filed for divorce. She also contacted the Royal Canadian Police.

Police officer caught on video ordering woman to shake her bra during drug search

Zoe Brugger ordered to shake bra 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A woman was left humiliated after a police officer asked her to shake her bra in public.

Police officer Dustin Fetz of Lakeland, Florida, is under fire after he ordered a woman to shake her bra during an unwarranted search for drugs during a traffic stop.

The officer pulled over Zoe Brugger and her boyfriend, when he spotted Brugger driving with a broken headlight. The officer ordered her out of the car. The officer then asked her if she had drugs on her. When she said she did not, he ordered her to empty her pockets.

Fetz then ordered her to lift her shirt, pull her bra away from her body and shake it, so he could see if she was hiding any drugs. When no drugs fell out, he then ordered her to do it again. Brugger said that the officer threatened to take her to jail. "He told me that he was taking me to Bartow Jail where they had an x-ray machine, where they were definitely going to find what I had hidden inside there," she said.

The officer asked for permission to search the car. At first, Brugger agreed, but then changed her mind and said "no". Fetz searched the vehicle anyway. No drugs were found on her, the boyfriend or in the car. The State Attorney's Office launched an investigation into the incident. Fetz was put on paid administrative leave during the investigation, but returned to work after four days.

Investigator Mike Brown presented a report stating that Fetz’s actions "went beyond the police actions that are permissible under the law" and "violated the constitutional rights afforded to Zoe Brugger.” State Attorney Jerry Hill sent a letter to the Lakeland Police Department, calling officer Fetz's conduct "egregious" and "degrading".

The letter added that he did not believe Fetz’s demands were sexually motivated, but he was "on a power trip." Hill said there is evidence that other officers were using the bra-shaking method in the past.

Snake expert dies from bite during presentation on overcoming fear of snakes

Dieter Zorn 
By: Moses Gold

A snake expert died after he was bitten by a snake during a reptile show.

The German snake expert died after being bitten several times by a snake during the presentation aimed at helping people ease their fears of reptiles.

Dieter Zorn, 53, an expert herpetologist, died of a heart attack minutes after being bitten by a Vipera aspis snake. At his show, Zorn encouraged attendees to handle reptiles in order to get rid of their fears of snakes. Zorn was in France to perform his reptile show, which teaches people how to overcome their fears of snakes, when he was bitten several times.

His co-host, Uschi Kallus, said that Zorn died from an "extremely rare allergic reaction" to the bite. Emergency personnel tried to save him by administering a blood thinner, but sadly, they were unable to save him. Kallus said the incident was "exceptionally rare."

Vipera aspis is a venomous viper species found in France, Switzerland, Spain and Italy. It can grow to about 20 inches long and live in a variety of habitats. A bite from this type of snake can be very painful, but only about 4 percent of all untreated bites are known to be fatal.

(Scroll down for video) A new high-tech robot can sort through garbage at lightning fast speeds, according to video uploaded to the internet.

ZenRobotics, a startup company in Finland, is on a mission to make the world a greener place by trying to solve the global garbage problem.

The European Union alone generates about 900 million tons of construction and demolition waste.

ZenRobotics makes the waste sorting process faster and more secure. Typically, humans manually sort through materials and in doing so are exposed to dust and chemicals.

The ZenRobotics Recycler system, or ZRR, separates raw materials such as metal, wood and stone. In the future, ZenRobotics will be able to recycle mobile electronics.

Four New York sisters sue their father after he refused to pay college tuition

 
By: Debbie Gross

Four women were furious after their father refused to make college tuition payments so they decided to sue their father in court, according to court proceedings in New York.

The four women filed their lawsuit in New York City against their own father, saying that he backed out of a promise to pay college tuition for his youngest daughter.

Nora, Magdalena, Lola, and Ina Kelleher filed the lawsuit against their father, Daniel Kelleher, a child psychologist based in Connecticut, in Manhattan Supreme Court.

The lawsuit alleged that Daniel Kelleher agreed to give his daughters an apartment in Paris and half of his checking account he shared with their mother, Sylvie Furstenberg, his former wife. The apartment generates rental income of about $2,600 a month.

Nora, Magdalene, and Ina agreed to give portions of the rent of the apartment in Paris to pay half the tuition of Lola at Oberlin College. The other half of Lola’s tuition should have been paid by the parent, the lawsuit alleged.
The parties signed documents on the agreement in June 2012.

Daniel Kelleher violated the contract with his daughters by refusing to comply in good faith with his obligation to transfer the monthly rental income less maintenance expenses of the Paris apartment for the months of July and August 2012 to his four daughters, according to the lawsuit.

The sisters are seeking $5,300 in tuition payments, according to the lawsuit.

By: John Roberts

A man was arrested and charged for stealing a bridge after police traced down the robber by following the drag marks, which were left behind when the thief hauled the stolen bridge away, according to police reports on Russia.

Police said that they arrested the Russian man for stealing the bridge this week after the skid marks led police to his home.

The man, 23-years-old, of the northern region of Vologda, apparently hooked the small steel bridge to his tractor and pulled it away to sell it as scrap.

Police said that all they did was follow the trail of the bridge left on the ground all the way to the suspect's home in the village of Frolovo. The man, who allegedly used a cutting torch to break the structure into smaller parts, did not manage to sell anything yet.

The alleged bridge thief was added to the list of the most daring Russian metal robberies, which also lists the theft of several special locomotives and a bicycle ridden by a circus bear.

Several men catching falling child 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) A little girl is lucky to be alive after falling down from a fourth floor window, only to be caught by several men, who happened to be at the scene, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The 2-year-old girl named Qiqi fell asleep in her parents' apartment in China and woke up, only to see that her parents left her alone in the apartment. Probably frightened, she crawled to the fourth floor window of the family apartment and climbed to the ledge, screaming and moving perilously close to the edge.

Meanwhile, in the alley below, a group of workers, heard and saw the screaming child. The men can be seen on video rushing over to the scene below the window and positioning themselves collectively so that in case she fell they would be able to catch her.

That's exactly what happened, the girl apparently slipped off the ledge and fell down towards them. In the below, you can see how the five tense men get ready to make a successful catch. They did, she fell right in the middle of them, and the men managed to grab her.

She was put down quickly and one of the men limped away in pain from the catch. He and another man were injured making the catch, but the little girl was fine.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Firefighters rescue boy, 5, from laundry basket after getting stuck playing hide and seek

Children playing hide and seek illustration 
By: David Ross

A little boy got stuck inside a laundry basket after a game of hide and seek went wrong, according to fire officials in the United Kingdom.

The five-year-old boy from Brighton had to be cut free by firefighters after being trapped inside the laundry basket for several long minutes.

The young child squeezed himself into a wicker laundry basket inside his Withdean area home while playing the popular children’s game with his mother.

Firefighters arrived to find the mother desperately pulling the child’s arms in order to free her son. The mother has also tried to use liquid detergent as a lubricant, but apparently, that didn't help either.

Fire service watch manager Richard Chamberlain described the event as an unusual call, and said the boy was unharmed despite the fact that firefighters had to cut him out of the laundry basket with a saw.

"He was playing nicely, but then his leg went below his bottom and he became completely stuck,” the fire manager said.
"His mother had tried to get him out with liquid soap, but it had not worked. The boy had been there for about 20 minutes by the time we got there,” he said.

"We were able to cut him out with a hand saw and everything went well," he added.

Brothers ages 5 and 7 arrested after taking grandmother’s car out on a joyride

By: Ryan Lee Hall

Two little children were arrested after they decided to steal their grandmother’s car, take it out on a joyride and then crashing the car, according to police reports in Amsterdam.

When the Dutch police were called to investigate reports of a stolen car being taken for a joy ride, they were surprised to find that the suspects could barely see over the steering wheel.

Officers briefly detained the two brothers, five and seven-years-old, after they crashed their grandmother's car. The two took the car for a spin in the city of Bloemendael, Amsterdam.

The two caused considerable damage to the car after hitting a metal pole while cruising along a residential street earlier this week.

“The police saw a banged up car with the doors open and two young children standing beside it," police spokesperson Lenny Beijerbergen said.

“The seven-year-old boy told police that he had driven the car about a mile and a half, struck a metal pole and came to a standstill,” the police spokesperson said.

One police officer even uploaded a photo of the incident on Twitter before having second thoughts, and deleted it.
"The boys were taken to the police station, given a talk and made aware of what they have done," the police spokesperson added.

"Police officers then drove the children to their home. Fortunately, both boys were unharmed. This is really quite remarkable, I have never seen anything like it,” he said.
The 7-year-old driver remained defiant and later said: "At least I wore my seat belt and my brother was in the child seat.”
