A man in the United Kingdom, was given permission to skip his court date because he did not understand the judge’s accent.

The drug dealer of the West Midlands, was arrested in Wales, but he refused to appear before the court because he had a hard time understanding what the judge was saying.

25-year-old Dwaine Campbell was arrested in Aberystwyth, for delivering 50 packets of heroin.

Campbell of Wolverhampton, remained in custody in Wales for 7 days, before being transferred to a prison near his home.

His lawyer, Janet Gedrych, told the court that Campbell complained that he could not understand what anyone in Aberystwyth was saying, due to the accent.

“He is worried that if he is sentenced here, he is going to end up in a prison in Wales, and he will have the same difficulties understanding the prisoners and prison guards,” Gedrych said.

Campbell pleaded guilty to possession of heroin with intent to supply. He will be jailed closer to his home in West Midlands, after he is sentenced by the Swansea Crown Court via video link.

(Scroll down for video) A millionaire decided to have his luxury car washed on a busy road, causing cars to swerve and a traffic backup.

The wealthy Porsche owner caused chaos on one of the busiest streets in London, England, to have his $1.5 million Porsche washed and polished.

Motorists were forced to slow down and bus drivers had to change lanes so that they could safely pass the Porsche 918 Spyder as it was meticulously detailed in a parking spot on the side of the road.

Although the car was parked in a parking space off the road, vehicles had to move out of the way in order to stay clear from the open doors of the Porsche.

Men also stepped onto the busy road to wash the vehicle’s body and tires.

The hybrid car seemed to have only recently arrived to the United Kingdom from Saudi Arabia, and it was covered in dust and sand.

Instead of taking the car to a discrete location or to a car wash lot, the owner decided to have it done very publicly on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge.

Two men worked on the Porsche for about an hour, washing, vacuuming and polishing the car. The Porsche, which can travel 210 miles per hour, was reportedly brought to London for the supercar season.

A diving rescue team went into the river in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, to recover the sunken boat over the weekend.

While working on the boat, the mechanic removed a panel and the trapped cat jumped out from the front storage compartment.

The cat was reportedly wet, scared and hungry when it was found. It is not clear how long the cat was trapped inside the boat, but Zuccala said that it was submerged underwater for at least one hour.

The owner of the boat, who was out of town, said that the cat does not belong to him.

The cat was handed over to the Arizona Humane Society and it was named Lucky. Staff members at the Humane Society said that it is a domesticated cat.

They are looking for the owner. However, they said that if the owner does not come forward within 72 hours, then the cat will be given up for adoption.

A man was arrested after he was caught shoplifting in a mall.

47-year-old David Joseph Domnitz of Florida, was arrested on Wednesday, after police said that he stole a food processor, Kitchen Aid mixer and 4 blenders from Macy's at the Fashion Square Mall in Orlando.

Police charged Domnitz with third-degree grand theft and resisting a merchant.

Investigators said that Domnitz went to the household goods department and grabbed the Kitchen Aid mixer. He then headed for the main exit without paying for the merchandise.

The store’s loss protection officer stopped Domnitz and placed him in handcuffs. Police said that when the store loss prevention officer handcuffed Domnitz, a struggle ensued, and the contents of his pockets fell out and landed on the ground.

Officers noted that the items that fell to the ground included a small amount of change, a debit and credit card, a smartphone and a key for a Mercedes.

A baby suffered irreversible damage to his eyes during a photo shoot.

The baby remains blind in one eye after the photographer forgot to turn off the flash while taking close-up photos.

Doctors said that the 3-month-old child, who has not been named, has suffered irreparable damage from the flash of the camera, which was held about 10 inches from the face.

The parents noticed something was wrong with the vision of their baby shortly after the pictures were taken by a family friend.

After the incident, the baby suffered from reduced vision in the left eye and blindness in the right eye. The damage is said to be permanent and cannot be fixed with surgery.

The strong flash has damaged cells on the macula, which is the part of the eye where incoming light rays are focused.

Damage to the macula can lead to loss of central vision, which allows people to see straight.

Experts said that the macula is not fully developed until children are 4 years old, and therefore, young children are very sensitive to bright light.

Experts also warned that just milliseconds of bright light can cause permanent damage.

It is unclear whether the family friend, who took the photo of the baby and caused the blindness, will face any criminal charges.
