A restaurant owner was arrested and charged after he was caught selling drugs to boost his store’s income, according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said that the owner of Gwynnett St., was arrested for allegedly trying to increase his bottom line by selling the Molly drug.

Carl McCoy told federal agents that he was having money problems and agreed to receive a package containing rock solid synthetic methylone, according to a complaint in federal court in Brooklyn.

McCoy, whose Williamsburg restaurant opened to rave reviews last year, with dishes like smoked black cod and duck with spaetzle beet, was released on $25,000 bail on Wednesday, after agreeing to testify against his accomplice.

Federal agents intercepted a package at John F Kennedy Airport, which was sent from China, after suspicion that it contains the Molly drug.

The package was addressed to McCoy, whose restaurant features a tasting menu that costs $120 per person.

Comedian spends time in jail after iPhone cookie prank on police officer backfires

A Comedian came up with an interesting way to prank police officers.

Randy Liedtke wanted to entertain people with a funny prank, but he could never have imagined that the joke will turn on him.

Liedtke had this clever idea of using cookies to deceive police offices in California, but he ended in a police station cell.

The Los Angeles comedian baked a batch of cookies and decorated them to look like iPhones.

He posted a photo of his creations on Twitter and Tumblr.

His plan was to pretend to be talking on the cookie phone while driving in hopes of getting stopped by police for talking on a cellphone while driving.

Liedtke told fans that when the officer will pull him over he will take a bite out of the fake iPhone and ask the officer if cookies were against the law.

However, things did not go exactly as planned.

Liedtke tweeted all his mischief live as it happened.

When he spotted an officer he wrote:

“Just saw a police car going the other way. Going to turn around and see if I can catch up,” he wrote.

Sure enough the officer stopped him.

"I took a bite out of the cookie. He was so confused and angry. He told me to hold tight, and he is back in his car now," Liedtke tweeted

When the officer returned, Liedtke updated his followers, writing: "He said I have a warrant for unpaid parking tickets? He is making me go with him," a surprised Liedtke wrote.

When he was finally released from Los Angeles police custody he tweeted: "It wasn't worth it. I'm an idiot."

He added a photo of himself looking sad while holding up his ticket. "No more iPhone Cookies," he wrote.

(Scroll down for video) An 82-year-old woman was taken to a hospital with stomach pain.

Doctors in Colombia, were stunned to find a fetus that had been inside her for the past 40 years.

The woman of Bogota, had what is known as Lithopedion, or stone baby. Lithopedion is a fetus that develops outside the uterus.

Doctors originally thought she was suffering from a stomach infection.

However, x-rays revealed the fetus, which became calcified.

There are less than 300 cases of fetuses remaining in the woman’s body reported in medical literature.

Now, the woman will undergo surgery to remove the dead fetus.

Dr. Kemer Ramirez of Bogota's Tunjuelito Hospital said that the doctor, who was treating the woman, noticed something abnormal in her abdomen, and suspected that it might be gallstones or an infection.

"This happens when the fetus does not develop inside the womb, and moves elsewhere in the woman’s body,” Dr. Ramirez explained.

The first reported case of Lithopedion was of a 68-year-old French woman named Colombe Chatri.

She did not know about the baby, and an autopsy after her death in 1582 revealed she had been carrying a fully developed stone baby in her abdominal cavity for 28 years.

In 2009, a Chinese woman, 92, was found to have a 60-year-old stone baby inside her.

While the woman was out, Zanden packed the belongings of their 21-month-old daughter Laylah, and his own belongings, and fled before his girlfriend returned.

When Mountney returned home after a wonderful and relaxing day out, she found that her daughter’s belongings were gone. She called the police.

"I miss Laylah so much, I just want her back in my arms. I thought he loved me and cared about me, but clearly he did not,” Mountney said.

Spanish detectives have launched a hunt for Zanden and the baby.

Drunk man ordered to write apology hundreds of times for stealing nude female painting from men’s bathroom

The nude portrait 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) A man who was caught with a stolen painting, was ordered to write an apology over and over again as his punishment.

Barent Larkin, who is the general manager of the Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, California, said that an expensive painting that hung on the bathroom wall of the men’s bathroom went missing.

The drunk man decided that it was an attractive piece to take home after drinking too much at a wedding. That guest took it off the bathroom wall and tucked it in his garment bag.

Larkin checked the hotel surveillance videos and did a little detective work online through Google and LinkedIn. He found the thief and contacted him by phone.

"He sounded legitimately upset by what he did, it was a drunken mistake, one he wanted to take back," Larkin said.

Police went to the man's house to retrieve the portrait. However, he did not go to jail.

Instead, Larkin did something only done in elementary schools. He ordered the thief to sit down with a piece of paper and a pencil, and write one line over and over again.

“I will not get drunk at a wedding and go steal the naked picture of a woman on a cigar over the urinal in the Citizen Hotel," the man wrote.

The portrait will hang again in the bathroom in a more secure manner. The anonymous letter from the thief will be right beside it.

Nkrumah was treated at a local hospital, and is now recovering at home after his ordeal.




What to Expect When an Ethical Employee Files Suit Against an Employer

 
By: David Ross

Nearly 100,000 equal opportunities claims were filed throughout the nation in 2012, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

For an employee to file a lawsuit against a workplace, there needs to be a sense of harm.

The employer has to have betrayed the employee's trust in one way or another—or, the employee needs to perceive that such a betrayal has taken place. Without looking at the merits of the suit, state and federal statutes or legal precedents, the simple act of betrayal will change a person. If you're thinking about suing your employer, know to expect the following in your life:

Anger

This is one of the first emotions to manifest when a person feels he has been wronged. Anger is a neurological process related to fear and shock. It was passed down from our caveman days—it can force us to stand immobile in our cave or give us the strength to take down a hostile invader. Denying your anger and its associated stresses cannot only "eat you up," it can cause actual illness.

Letting anger control you, however, can cause recklessness that could cost you your case. Monitor your anger. Put it on a scale. When you feel the burning flames of wrath, give it a number from one to 10. When you are hitting the high numbers, redirect it to fuel logical, helpful actions. If there is nothing for you to do, then release the anger with the stress reduction techniques that work for you.

Preoccupation

Instead of worrying what will happen, take the time to research what to expect. Companies have lawyers and insurance agents to handle the litigation and pay out the damages (if any are awarded). Since a representative from your employer's insurance company may be sitting on the opposite side of the table, familiarize yourself with the various types of business insurance. If your case will be paid out under an omissions and errors clause, then the lawyer will be paid by the insurance carrier. Understanding how the system works will help you to stop the preoccupying voices in your head.

Self-Doubt

Defense attorney Robin Shea wrote on the LexisNexis labor and employment law blog that employees filing a claim against their employer may find that coworkers are not on their side. Remember that the employer holds the purse strings, and your coworkers have no reason to put their jobs in jeopardy for you. Some of your coworkers will simply not agree with you. This can be very disheartening and lend to self-doubt. Do not let your emotions dictate your interactions with coworkers. It's best not to discuss the details of your case, anyway. Allow them to disagree with you without hard feelings.

Life-Altering Change

Prepare yourself to look for another job. A corporate lawsuit can drastically alter your personal and professional life, and you've made no friends with the management by filing a lawsuit. Betrayal often brings change, so use this to your advantage. Look for new educational and entrepreneurial opportunities. Use this experience to learn to protect yourself from a wrongful work environment.
