(Scroll down for video) A group of school children are lucky to be alive after their bus driver recklessly drove through a train crossing despite the fact that a train was coming, according to police reports in Israel.

Police said that the bus driver was seen on a police camera breaking a rail barrier and endangering the lives of students. The man, 39, of Haka al-Gharbia, was arrested after he was allegedly seen breaking the rail barrier on the first day of the school year.

"The traffic light was red, the railway lights have been flashing, and the bells rang, warning the driver of an oncoming train. However, that did not stop the driver from endangering the occupants of the bus, and he broke through the barrier," a police officer assigned to the case said.

After the incident, the driver continued on his way and arrived at the school, where students left the bus.
The driver denied the allegations and claimed that it "never happened" despite the fact that police have him on video.
The man’s license has been suspended, and he will be charged with reckless endangerment.

A teen was arrested and charged with a conspiracy related charges after she conspired with five men to rape her friend, according to police reports in Israel.

Israel Police said that a woman, 18, of central Israel, was arrested this week on suspicion of soliciting five men to rape her 22-year-old friend.

Police said that the woman was charged with conspiracy to commit rape and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Police also told the court that the suspect tried to obstruct the investigation by calling one of the rapist and telling him that the police are looking for him.

How the IDF is preparing Israeli school for emergencies

By: David Ross

The IDF has recently revealed how it is preparing Israeli schools to deal with emergencies, according to a report by the UDF blog.

The Home Front Command prepares schools and businesses across the country from all of Israel’s communities for emergency situations

Cpl. Nestia Golubovsky finds herself in a different part of Israel every week. This Civil Emergency Instructor travels around the country to teach schoolchildren how to prepare for an emergency, and how to stay safe if they find themselves in an emergency situation. Today, she’s at a local elementary school in Kfar Qara, an Israeli Arab village in the north.

“I’ve taught in quite a few Israeli Arab schools before,” Cpl. Nestia tells us. “They’re not particularly used to seeing soldiers, but whenever we arrive they greet us very warmly.”

The hospitality at schools in the Arab sector is incredible, says Nestia. “They are super friendly and greet us every morning with a cup of coffee. At another Arab school, the staff brought out a huge plate of knafeh [a traditional Middle Eastern cheese pastry] at the end of the week for all the instructors.”

We walk into the classroom and a group of children ages eight to 10 greets us. Cpl. Nestia begins, and a staff member from the school translates her lesson sentence by sentence into Arabic. “Because I don’t speak Arabic I have to teach with a translator,” Cpl. Nestia says. “This makes dialogue with the students a bit difficult, because it means I can’t ask as many questions.

It’s a Thursday, so today’s class will summarize a week’s worth of lessons on fire safety. Cpl. Nestia starts from the basics, asking the students to define a fire, and then moves on to more complex topics: how to prevent fire before it breaks out, how to fireproof your home, and the importance of preparing an emergency kit to run out with if you need to.

The children are eager and have lots of questions to ask. Cpl. Nestia starts to quiz them and all of their hands shoot up at once to answer. Later, she gives the students a sheet to fill in with emergency phone numbers – of their parents, grandparents, and other important contacts – and to stick on their refrigerators at home.

Teaching children requires different tactics to teaching adults, Cpl. Golubovsky says. “You can tell a grownup what to do in a rocket attack – but a child doesn’t necessarily know what a rocket is. We spend a lot of extra time teaching kids, and go into all of the specifics of each situation so that they understand what to do to the greatest extent possible.”

The lesson doesn’t stop in the classroom – when the students bring their contact sheets home, the entire family learns how to prepare for an emergency. “The children teach the parents,” the principal of the school tells us. “And we hear only positive things from them.”

The school has been participating in the program for a number of years. “I’m an educator, but I’m also a resident of Kfar Qara, a family man and a grandfather,” the principal says. “The work of the Home Front Command here is enormously important. We need to be able to help ourselves.” During Operation Pillar of Defense, rockets were falling in their dozens, and Kfar Qara was under threat like the rest of the country. The operation was a good example of the importance of the program, the principal says. “I recommend that everyone in the school participates, and I’d like to expand the program to the entire community.”

“If they don’t learn this content in school, they wouldn’t get it anywhere else,” Cpl. Golubovsky tells us. “I get feedback from the school every day. They’re very thankful for what we do. I arrive every day with a good feeling.”

Israelis invent new ‘Gastric Sleeve’ to fight obesity

MetaboShield device 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) For those who do not like the idea of gastric bypass surgery, several Israelis students have invented a new non-invasive gastric device.

The Israeli students have created the innovative device in order to help combat obesity.

The “MetaboShield” is a gastric sleeve that can be inserted endoscopically, which means that any operation would be non-invasive, requiring no incisions, tissue damage or general anesthesia.

A group of experts and students from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, developed the medical device that helps patients lose weight by blocking nutrients from being absorbed into the bloodstream.

Doctor Yaakov Nahmias, who is the director of the Center for Bioengineering at the University, said that the device does not cause damage to the intestinal wall, which makes it unique.

Nahmias also said that the device, which is inserted into the body through a cavity, usually the mouth, currently requires funding from a major corporation, but is expected to be on the market within five years.

2 men were arrested and charged with terrorism related charges after planning to attack Israelis, according to police reports in Nigeria.

Nigeria Police charged two of its citizens on Wednesday with assisting an Iranian extremist cell with planning attacks against Israeli targets. Police also said that the two had traveled to Tehran and Dubai in order to pick up cash and had managed to spy on Israelis.

The Secret Service arrested Abdullahi Mustapha Berende and Saheed Oluremi Adewumi. They are accused of being members of a high-profile terrorist network that was planning attacks against their own country.

The alleged cell was not named in the indictment.

Berende is accused of traveling to Iran to help with material assistance and training of terrorists in the use of firearms, explosives and other weapons.

He is also accused of knowing about a pending attack against the Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center, but did not notify police.

(Scroll down for video) A truck suddenly plowed into a Jewish restaurant, according to emergency workers in Pennsylvania.

The truck crashed right through the front window of Hymie's Merion Deli, which is located on Montgomery Avenue in Merion Station, before 6:00 am, nearly striking employees inside, who were preparing delis.

"It was a big loud sound like an explosion," Harry Zeisler, an employee at the store, said. "It was very frightening," he added.
Lower Merion Police did not reveal why the driver lost control of his truck, jumped the curb and crashed into the deli.

"I saw a man coming out of the truck, swaying a little with some blood coming down his face," Zeisler said.
The driver of the red Dodge Ram was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

None of the three employees, who were inside at the time were injured.
Hymie’s employees were seen sweeping debris including glass, bricks, planters, tables and chairs.

Customers were thankful things were not worse.

"Good thing it was not an hour later," a customer said. "Usually, at that time, the whole place has a lot of people in it," he said.

When the restaurant reopens depends on what building inspectors find.
Hymie’s is known in the neighborhood since 1955, for its pickle bar, breakfast and deli sandwiches. It is also a popular spot for private events.

Burger flavored ice cream now for sale in London

The BBQ burger ice cream 
By: David Ross

These days, there are a lot of weird tasting ice cream available to purchase in stores, but this one might just be the weirdest tasting ice cream of all time.

When choosing a flavor for ice cream, meat is probably the last thing on your mind.

However, that's exactly what was on the menu during the first U.K. National Burger Day, which was celebrated in Yard Dalston, east London. Visitors were able to taste BBQ burger ice cream.

The ice cream came with candied bacon and dill pickle.

To make the item even more appealing Suzanna Austin, from Sorbitium ice cream, offered her customers some ketchup toppings.

"In naming August 27 as National Burger Day and revealing the legendary ice cream burger, we are celebrating the ingenuity and versatility of the British burger,” event organizer Jonathan Stack said.

As expected, the new burger flavor has not been well received by all.

"Clever but no thanks! Burger flavored ice cream created for National Burger Day,” Twitter user Jess Walker wrote.
“A frozen burger? What’s next?" Kudos added.

Man fined after drinking cut human toe out of shot glass

Man drinking alcohol with human toe 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A man was slapped with a fine after he drank a severed human toe in public, according to video uploaded to the internet.

A customer at a hotel was fined $500 after he swallowed a human toe at the bar.

The severed body part was placed into a shot of whiskey, as part of a tradition in Dawson City, Canada.

The Yukon ritual involves someone drinking the cocktail called Sour Toe and having the toe touch the lips, without swallowing it.

Those who accidentally ingest the toe, which has happened on several occasions, face punishment just like the man drinking at the hotel.

The idea of drinking from a glass with a human ​​toe made a large number of people dizzy.

Some jokingly wondered who provided the replacement toe at the event after the man swallowed it.

If you were wondering where the toes come from, they are supposedly donated by living donors, who have lost their toes due to illness or accident.

Man diagnosed with chronic lateness disease

Jim Dunbar 
By: Eva Fett

Instead of admitting that he is just too lazy to show up on time for appointments, one man blames his chronic lateness on a disease.

Jim Dunbar recently made ​​plans to see a movie at 7:00 pm with a friend. Dunbar was 20 minutes late despite the fact that he had 11 hours to prepare for his date. Dunbar suffers from chronic lateness.

The condition that affects the man is more than just simple poor time management skills. Scientists believe that the brain function that controls his timekeeping is defected. Dunbar missed dates with numerous women, sneaked into funerals late, and was constantly late to school since he was five-years-old.

"I understand that it bothers other people when I arrive late," Dunbar said, noting that the day he had planned to watch a movie at 7:00 pm, he woke up at 8:15 am in preparation for being on time. "My family thinks I'm just making excuses," he said.

The silver lining for the 57-year-old, is that he can blame it on a disease. He spent his whole life thinking it was a defect in his personality and character, but his recent diagnosis has shown the contrary. Of course, on the day he was scheduled to receive his diagnosis, he appeared 20 minutes late to the appointment.

"It's depressing at times," he said. "I cannot overstate how much it helped me to know that I was suffering from a condition," he also said.

No jail time for wife of George Zimmerman after pleading guilty to perjury

Shellie Zimmerman 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) After the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the Zimmerman family has been a big part of the news.

Now, Shellie Zimmerman , wife of George Zimmerman, pleaded guilty to perjury.

Shellie Zimmerman was accused of lying under oath when she was asked about the family's financials.

Shellie Zimmerman was originally charged with a third-degree felony, and she faced a five-year jail sentence. Instead, she agreed to plead guilty to a lesser crime, a misdemeanor perjury charge.

She was sentenced to serve one year probation. She is required to do 100 hours of community service and pay court costs. She must also write an apology letter within 30 days to Judge Kenneth Lester, who presided over the case of her husband at the time when she committed perjury.

Prosecutors said Shellie Zimmerman lied about their finances. She claimed they did not have money when George Zimmerman actually had about $135,000 at the time.

Phone calls from jail recorded between the pair caught the two speaking in code about their finances. The wife then transferred money out of her husband's bank account.

The conviction of Shellie Zimmerman came a day after her husband's lawyer revealed his plans to submit a request to the state of Florida for reimbursement of expenses he incurred during the trial.

Under Florida law, a defendant who is acquitted is not responsible for court costs, provided that a judge consents to the reimbursement. Costs may include money spent by the witnesses, travel expenses and fees for transcripts, but do not include attorney fees.

Man arrested after killing raccoon that killed his cat

Richard Moller 
By: Moses Gold

A man was arrested and charged with animal cruelty related charges after he killed a raccoon because it killed his beloved cat, according to police reports in Colorado.

Boulder Police said that they arrested a local man on Monday night, for the beating of two raccoons, at least one of them fatally, as revenge for the killing of his cat, several years ago.

According to an arrest warrant, Boulder Police were called at 6:45 pm on Monday to 5610 Arapahoe Avenue after a witness saw a man, later identified as Richard Moller, 50, jump into a dumpster and starting to hit two raccoons with a piece of wood that had nails sticking out of it.

The witness said he could hear the raccoons "screaming and moaning" and said it appeared Moller was deliberately pushing nails into the animals.

The witness yelled at Moller, who said: "All raccoons must die.” He then jumped away and left the scene, according to court documents.

When police found and questioned Moller, he told officers that he had seen raccoons killing his cat, a few years ago. I had an anger problem and it was my chance to kill raccoons, Moller said according to an affidavit.

Moller told police he was not using the side with the nails and was just trying to hit it.

Police found a dead raccoon in the dumpster along with another injured raccoon, which fled before officers could catch it. A wood with long nails sticking out was also found in the trash.

Moller faces two felony counts of animal cruelty. As of Tuesday night, he remained in the Boulder County Jail on $100 bond.

Cellphone thief caught after tripping over his saggy pants

Joel Donaldson 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A cellphone thief ran out of luck after he tripped over his saggy pants while running away from police, according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said that a bad wardrobe choice led to the arrest of a cellphone thief when he stumbled on his sagging jeans during his attempt to flee from the cops, who were chasing him down.

Joel Donaldson, 21, allegedly punched his victim in the face before snatching her cell about 2:30 pm on the corner of Court and Remsen streets, a short walk from Borough Hall. He then tried to escape on foot, but did not get very far.

His drooping blue jeans, which left his underwear exposed, slid down further as he ran.
A police officer, who was directing traffic, saw the incident and ran after him.

Donaldson was only a block away before his pants were completely around his ankles, allowing the officer to tackle him near Joralemon Street.

"He was weaving all over the place, but could not run because his pants were falling," a witness, Arlene Williams, said.
"The police saw him, and went right after him," she said.

Donaldson was arrested two blocks from the Brooklyn Criminal Court on charges of theft, police said.




Teen creates Facebook page and pretends to be a girl, reports herself missing to get ransom

Andriy Mykhaylivskyy 
By: Sarah Weiss

A teen let officials on a search for a woman, who was reported kidnaped and held hostage.

However, in reality the woman never existed.

New Jersey Police said that a local teen was arrested after he created a fake identity of a teenage girl on Facebook and Twitter.
He then tried to collect a $50,000 ransom in order to secure her release.

Andriy Mykhaylivskyy, 18, was charged with making false statements to a U.S. official.
The bizarre plot unfolded after Mykhaylivskyy created an online identity for Kate Brianna Fulton and used bogus social media accounts to start a relationship with another 18-year-old student.

One day, Mykhaylivskyy called a U.S. Embassy in Chisinau, Moldova, where he identified himself as Andrei Aylivsk, and reported that Fulton had been kidnapped in Bulgaria, where she was being held for $50,000 in ransom. The teen told officials that the girl’s kidnappers gave one week to pay the ransom, authorities said.

Mykhaylivskyy also posted “Someone help me” on the wall of the bogus social media account. The 18-year-old then went to the authorities with the ominous tweet.
Authorities searched several hotels and hostels in one Bulgarian town, but came up empty-handed.

Investigators eventually traced Fulton’s account to Mykhaylivskyy, who admitted to the scheme but said it was a “joke,” court papers show.

Officials later determined that the photo of the woman shown in Fulton’s profile was taken from a random girl. That girl was not aware that her pictures had been used in the bogus account.
Mykhaylivskyy was ordered held in lieu of $5,000 bail after he was arraigned in federal court.

Riley Breihan 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A little girl is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a violent shark, according to emergency workers in Florida.

An 11-year-old, who survived a shark attack in Daytona, Florida, will always have a memory of her encounter with the shark.

Riley Breihan was swimming in the water in WinterHaven Park in Ponce Inlet on Sunday, when she felt something biting her leg.

"At first, I was not thinking about the pain, I was thinking that I got bitten by a shark and I have to go to the emergency room," the girl said. "Then I felt the sting and it hurt really bad," she said.

Riley was bit twice, once in the leg and once in the ankle. Two strangers, who witnessed the incident, quickly wrapped her leg in a towel and took her to the hospital, where she is expected to recover fully.

As doctors were checking her wounds, they found a shark tooth in one of the bites.

Riley said that although she will keep the tooth as a souvenir she has no plans of getting back into the water.

"I do not think I'd go back in the water ever," she said.

Teen girl calls police to report massive freaking spider

(Scroll down for video) A teen girl was freaking out after seeing a spider, so she decided to call the police, according to police reports in Oregon.

Forest Grove Police said that a local teenager did not call 911 to report an emergency, but instead, she called to report a spider.
Police said it happened during the night of August 16.

"I'm home alone and there's a giant spider on the back of my couch, and I mean giant. I have never seen a spider that big and I have no idea what to do," the girl told the perplexed dispatcher, according with police records.

The girl said that the spider was the size of a baseball, similar to a tarantula.
An officer did respond to the scene and calculated that the spider was about 2 inches in diameter.

Modern police equipment was not necessary to get rid of the eight-legged animal in this case.
The officer has disposed the spider with a crumpled piece of newspaper, police said.

Five criminals who are dumb as rocks

Suspect and lawyer illustration 
By: Shifra Unger

The Darwin Awards exist for a reason, and although stupid criminals might make us laugh, they're indicative of real problems.

Officials in Great Britain have reported that the effectiveness of their closed circuit monitoring system has dropped by 50 percent in the past five years, but that just means criminals have to find new ways to skirt the system, according to The Telegraph.

With current challenging economic conditions, thieves have had to become more creative and resourceful in their endeavors. From petty theft to phishing, criminals are taking their game to new and innovative levels. However, this is far from true for all criminals, as there are still plenty of dumb ones out there to amuse and amaze us...

1. Playing Dead at a Funeral Home

An Oddee blog post focused on the ten dumbest criminals included a man who tried to rob a funeral home in Spain in 2008, and then attempted to hide from police by pretending to be among the deceased; however, two things blew his cover. Number one: he breathed. Number two: he wore dingy criminal clothes instead of his Sunday best.

Nearby neighbors heard the door of the funeral home break open and alerted police. Officers arrived with the owner to find the burglar laying "in repose" in a glass encased chamber used to view deceased loved ones. It turns out this wasn't this criminal's first offense -- but it was likely his most memorable.

2. Calling Ahead

In 2008, Daniel Glen of Windsor, Ontario was charged with robbing a convenience store after calling ahead to inquire how much money was currently in the till, according to the Oddee blog post. The clerk immediately called police, who were able to arrest the suspect lurking near the store. Local news stations reported it was suspected that Glen had pulled off two similar incidents recently in the area through the act of vishing. By calling ahead first to make sure that the cashier had plenty of cash on hand, he figured he'd get it bagged up for himself when he got there. Now that's bold , as well as stupid.

3. The Dumbest Cybercriminal

SC Magazine reported that when Ned Jones of Georgia walked into the Augusta Police Department to file a theft report for a missing laptop, it seemed pretty routine -- until he included the fact that the laptop contained over 30,000 identities that he had stolen!

Of course, he was immediately hit with identity theft charges, but not without protest. His excuses included:

"Online identity theft is like stealing music; everyone does it." "Many people know the pain of having their identities stolen, but can you imagine the frustration of having over 30,000 stolen from you?" According to SC Magazine, Jones faces up to 30 years in prison for his offense. It's too bad ALL identity thieves aren't that stupid, but the unfortunate truth is that many are quite savvy.

4. Walk Much?

The Oddee blog post explains that a thief who stole $300 worth of hunting knives from a Michigan store was leaving the scene when he tripped, stumbled and was stabbed in the stomach by some of the knives. Ouch! Store employees caught up with him and confronted him. A scuffle ensued in which he fell and injured himself further with the knives still tucked away in his pants. The suspect was hospitalized and eventually received a misdemeanor shoplifting charge.

5. Drinking and Stealing

A burglar in Germany stole a bottle of pricey champagne to celebrate his successful theft of cash and jewelry. He proceeded to get really drunk and then park in his car on the side of the road to "sleep it off." Concerned motorists called police when they saw the man slumped over the wheel of his car on the side of the road. When officers arrived, they checked his ID and found out he was wanted in a string of robbery cases. (They went on to add "drunk driving" to that list as well!)

While crime is no laughing matter, especially if you're the victim, you can't help but chuckle at criminals like these!

Doctors find snake in woman’s stomach after believing she was pregnant

Maria Tsotetsi 
By: John Roberts

Doctor's discovered that a woman was pregnant with a snake after her stomach grew. Instead of a baby, doctors found the snake in her tummy.

The woman has been in poor health for some time and doctors reportedly believe the snake is the cause of her deteriorating health.

Maria Tsotetsi, 49, of Vosloorus, east of Johannesburg, South Africa, claims that a bishop put the snack inside her.
Tsotetsi, who looks pregnant, was in the hospital a while back, when doctors told her that she had a growth in her stomach.

"They said I had lost a lot of blood and I needed surgery,” she said. But the family was too poor to pay for surgery and nothing happened after that. Nurses gave her medicine, and she was released from the hospital a few days later.

In an attempt to help, Tsotetsi, her then boyfriend, took her to a bishop to cure her.
According to Tsotetsi, the bishop told her to remove all of her clothes and he gave her muthi, a herbal medicine.

"The muthi was covered in white and brown snakeskin. The Bishop said this would cure me," she said.
A few days later she became sick and her teeth began to fall out.

"I think the muthi made ​​me lose my teeth,” she said. After the visit to the bishop, her boyfriend of 14 years left her and she was unable to find love since then.
"I want him to come and remove the snake, which he placed in my stomach. I believe that the bishop is responsible for this." Tsotetsi said.

Traditional healer Ntsimbi Ngema said: "This kind of thing is done by jealous lovers. There is no way Maria could have a new boyfriend because he could die after having sex with her".

A blind man was angry after his friend, who is also blind, slept with his wife.

26-year-old Shaibu Ibrahim, of Nigeria, told the court that his friend Shehu Sarki enticed his wife.

Shehu Sarki, 32, is the chairman of the Blind Peoples Association. Shaibu learned that his friend slept with his wife, Lami Ibrahim, 23.

Ironically, the chairman, who is accused of sleeping with his friend’s wife, was the one who introduced the two to each other.
"Sometime in June, our chairman, Sarki, helped me get a woman for marriage,” Ibrahim said.

"After our wedding, Sarki enticed my wife and took her away from my house. Later, I learned that my wife was staying in one of his rooms where he has been sleeping with her," Ibrahim added.

If convicted, the defendant could spend two years in prison.
Sarki, however, denies the allegations and pleaded not guilty.
Judge Albert Maga granted bail in the amount of N20,000 or approximately $135.

(Scroll down for video) A woman was stunned to find photos of two guys in their underwear on her computer.

The woman told police that she was sitting at a restaurant when two guys came over to talk to her. After the men left the woman realized that her iPhone was stolen.

The next day, when she logged onto her computer, she found photos of men in their underwear. Apparently, the men were unaware that the pictures from the phone were automatically sent to the owner's iCloud account.

After stripping to their shorts on the beach in Southend, Essex, United Kingdom, the men took a series of pictures of themselves at the beach in their underwear.

The iPhone used to take the photographs, belonged to Becky Brinklow, 27, who works as a nurse. Her phone was stolen while she ate lunch at the Varsity Bar in Southend, with her 16-month-old son named Henry at a restaurant near the beach.

"Luckily, I had insurance on the phone and I was able to receive a new phone,” Brinklow said. She went online to access all of her photos and uploaded them to her new phone.
She called police to report the incident.

The iPhone has since been blocked with the Find MyiPhone app. Police are investigating. Police are reviewing the security cameras at the restaurant where the phone was stolen. Police are confident that they will catch the thieves.

Before going into the bathroom make sure to have enough toilet paper.

A man in Masvingo, Zimbabwe got into trouble after he tried to use an election campaign poster as toilet paper.

According to police, Takura Mufumusi, 26, went to a bathroom at a bar, but found no toilet paper. He searched for something to use to wipe himself. He found a poster of President Robert Mugabe on the wall and decided to use the poster as toilet paper.

“He tore the poster, which had the face of Mugabe, with the intention of using it as toilet paper,” police said.
But he was stopped by another man named Osman Musengi, who was also in the bathroom at the time.

Musengi made ​​a citizen's arrest, and waited for police to arrive. Mufumusi was charged for violating the Electoral Act and destruction of political material.
In Zimbabwe it is a crime to pull down election campaign posters.

A Zimbabwean Magistrate's Court judge later dismissed the case because there was not enough evidence proving that the man intended to use the poster of President Robert Mugabe as toilet paper in the bar.

“Mufumusi was acquitted by a Magistrate's Court because of a lack of evidence,” his lawyer, Shumba Phillip, confirmed.
Despite the fact that his poster was torn from the bar, President Mugabe, 89, won a seventh term in office, beating his rival, Morgan Tsvangirai.

By: Shifra Unger

A woman was arrested for refusing to leave her neighbor's house and urinating on her couch.

The woman in New Freedom, Pennsylvania, was allegedly drunk when she urinated on the couch on Saturday night.

Kimberly Ann Crozier-Crowley, 55, faces charges of trespassing, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, loitering and prowling at night.

Southern Regional Police were called to the home of Jon Pizzurro, at 11:25 pm. Pizzurro, who lives near Crosier-Crowley, called police and said that the woman was drunk and did not want leave his house.
