(Scroll down for video) A thief is suing 7-Eleven because he was humiliated during a robbery, according to a lawsuit filed in New York.

The man became a nationwide laughingstock when a video of his attempted robbery went viral.

The man who tried to steal a Snickers bar from a Brooklyn 7-Eleven, was stripped naked by a store employee

In documents filed in Bronx Supreme Court, David Golson, 30, said he suffered "emotional distress" as a result of the embarrassing incident.

Golson was charged with burglary and criminal mischief following the incident. It is unclear how the case was resolved.

After the video was made public, 7-Eleven fired one of the employees involved and sent two others for additional training.

Man moves next-door to former wife and builds 12-foot bronze middle finger statue

A man is taking revenge against his former wife by building a huge middle finger statue.

Alan Markovitz, who owns a number of strip clubs in Detroit, Michigan, spent $7,000 to erect the 12-foot tall middle finger bronze statue, which some might see as offensive.

He placed the middle finger statue in his own backyard, but it is facing the house owned by his former wife, Lea Tuohy.

The strip club owner has bought the house next to his former wife and erected the giant finger to annoy her and her new partner.

Markovitz reportedly lives at the house with his 17-year-old daughter, Tiffany, from a previous relationship.

The images were posted to Twitter by his former wife’s daughter, Lenka.

Markovitz said that the middle finger salute is not directed at his former wife, but rather at her new partner with whom Tuohy began an affair while she and Markovitz were still married.

"I'm so over her. This is about him. This is about him not being a man," Markovitz said.

Markovitz wrote an autobiography, titled Topless Prophet: The True Story of America's Most Successful Gentleman's Club Entrepreneur.

The book is currently being turned into a TV series.

Markovitz was looking to buy a house, and when his real estate agent showed the house next door to his former wife, he liked the house and decided to buy it.

“After that karma took over," Markovitz said.

Waiting at the Florida DMV can get boring, so one man entertained himself and others by masturbating publicly.

Edward Michael Alvin, 34, of Palm Springs, exposed himself at about 11:00 a.m. on Friday, in the lobby of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles office in West Palm Beach.

About 11 people saw Alvin masturbate at the DMV, according to the police report.

Alvin did not know that one of the 11 people was an off-duty police officer with the Delray Police Department.

The police officer ordered Alvin to stop masturbating, but he apparently did not stop.

He was arrested and taken to the County Jail. He was charged with indecent exposure, according to the records of the sheriff's office.

This was not the first time Alvin was arrested. According to reports, Alvin was arrested in July, after he allegedly stole a car from his former boss and crashed it while driving drunk.

(Scroll down for video) A teacher punched a seventh grader in the face, leaving him with a bruise.

The teacher was seen in the hallway punching a 12-year-old after the student made fun of the teacher’s favorite football team.

The incident took place at the Willie Ray Smith Middle School in Beaumont, Texas.

Reginald Wells stopped in the hall to talk to his math class teacher’s assistant.

He cracked a joke about the teacher’s favorite football team, and things took a nasty turn.

"Suddenly he hit me on the shoulder,” Wells said. The student then pushed the teacher.

The teacher responded by punching the student in the face, knocking him unconscious for a few seconds.

Wells, who is only 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 80 pounds, was hurt.

The left side of his face became numb, and his lips was hurt.

Another teacher, who witnessed the incident, told the principal. The principal notified the teen’s mother, Adrianne Wells.

The teacher was reportedly escorted off the school premises and was fired on the spot.

The teen’s mother called police and she is pressing charges.

"For you to just let a teacher do that to him and just walk off, I can not accept that," Mrs. Wells said.

After public outrage Ohio governor allows death row inmate to live long enough to donate his organs to family

(Scroll down for video) Many people were outraged when Ohio officials refused to postpone the execution date for Ronald Phillips so he can donate his organs to his ailing mother and sister.

After the public outrage, Ohio Governor John Kasich (Republican), who has previously denied clemency for Phillips, 40, has now granted a six-month suspension of the execution so that the state can look into the option of taking donations of organs from death row inmates like Phillips.

“I realize this is a bit of uncharted territory for Ohio,” Kasich said in a statement. “If another life can be saved by his willingness to donate his organs and tissues then we should allow for that to happen,” he said.

As we reported earlier, a man on death row has one last wish, to donate his organs to his family members, who are sick and in need.

Ronald Phillips, 40, of Ohio, was sentenced to death for the rape and murder of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter in Akron. The crime took place back in 1993.

Ohio Governor John Kasich rejected his appeal for clemency.

Now, Ohio is moving forward with his execution after denying his last-minute request to allow him to donate his organs to his sick mother and sister before he is killed by the state.

His lawyers said that Phillips’ mother is suffering from a kidney disease and is on dialysis, while his sister has a heart condition.

Donating his organs to his mother and sister will give them a better chance of survival.

One of the reasons cited by prison officials for rejecting the application is because they believe that is just a way for Phillips to push off his execution date.

Phillips’ lawyers said that the request was not a delaying tactic, but rather an attempt to make a final gesture of good.

Prison officials took one quick look at his request and determined that they could not find a way to accommodate him.

Moving Phillips to and from a hospital was among the issues that raised significant security risks so close to his execution.

Phillips is scheduled to die by injection of a sedative and pain killers that has never been used in a U.S. execution.

The prisons department is leaving it up to Phillips' family if they choose to harvest his organs after his death, although it is unclear whether it would be possible to do so by the time Phillips’ body is returned to his family.

Attorney Tim Sweeney said that Phillips did not request to donate his organs before because he hoped his case would go another way.

"He was very hopeful that he would be granted clemency and/or receive relief from the court," Sweeney said.
What a shame.
