(Scroll down for video) Two migrants were arrested on a charge of arson after allegedly burning down a refugee center because they were not given enough Nutella spread, according to police in Germany.

Dusseldorf police said that they have arrested Adel D. and Mohammed B., after being accused of setting fire to the building, causing people to suffer from burns.

The two suspects were charged with aggravated arson and dangerous bodily harm.

Most of the migrants were satisfied, but a few still complained.

One day, Adel D. and Mohammed B. began shouting for more gummy bears and Nutella spread, claiming that they were not given enough.

They then set fire to the center, causing it to burn to the ground. The fire caused $10 million in damages and caused 26 people to suffer injuries.

Luckily, the fire did not cause any fatalities.

A police officer was punished after he removed a girl from a crime scene.

Captain Marshawn Love of New Jersey, was dispatched to the scene of a car accident.

When he arrived, he learned that off-duty police officer Phil Seidle, 51, ran his ex-wife off the road while his young daughter was a passenger in his car.

Phil then used his service weapon to shoot and kill Tamara Seidle, 51, in front of their 7-year-old daughter. Captain Love decided to remove the child from the scene and he drove her to the police station.

However, Love was accused of being incompetent and negligent for leaving the scene instead of taking command as the senior officer.

Love said that he was not the commanding officer at the time, but Asbury Park city manager Michael Capabianco upheld the charges of incompetency, neglect of duty and three other counts against him.

Love was punished by being demoted to sergeant and he was also suspended for 120 days.

Phil Seidle was sentenced to 30 years in prison after a plea deal in which he pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter and child endangerment rather than murder.

This deal helped him avoid a life sentence. Two of his children asked the judge to hand down the maximum sentence because he took their mother from them.

Witnesses at the crime scene said that Phil was screaming at his former wife about being tired of paying alimony while having limited access to the children.

The couple had nine children, ranging in age from 7 to 24, and their divorce was finalized one month before the murder.

A woman in Florida, was arrested after a dog suffered injuries when it was shot with a stun gun.

The woman of Key West, used the stun gun on her neighbor's 45-pound pit bull mix.

Shirlee Hiller, 53, was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty. She faces up to one year in jail and a $5,000 fine if she is convicted of the crime.

Police were called to the 2900 block of Patterson Avenue, after Hiller started yelling at her neighbor's dog for barking in its owner's backyard.

According to police, the dog was barking loudly due to “activity at the Kmart loading area, which is directly behind the dog owner’s home.”

The dog’s owner, Permelia Smith, 41, told police that seconds after the barking began, Hiller zapped the dog with a stun gun.

The dog had blisters, bumps and redness on the inside of its legs, hips and groin “consistent with being exposed to an electric weapon,” police said.

Hiller told police that she never attacked the dog and only threatened to use the stun gun on it.

The black and white dog was taken to the vet and appears to have no permanent injuries, according to Matt Royer, chief operating officer of Florida Keys SPCA.

Police removed the “electric weapon” from the suspect’s home when she was arrested.

A woman in the United Kingdom, died after undergoing a treatment during which she was slapped all over the body.

71-year-old Danielle Carr-Gomm was diagnosed with diabetes,
but she was afraid of needles so she decided to seek alternative treatment.

The grandmother tried the controversial “slap treatment” at a health retreat at a hotel in Wiltshire.

Carr-Gomm was found dead by her hotel roommate just hours after taking part in the treatment, which is said to eradicate toxins that cause disease from the body through hard and repeated slaps, fasting and painful stretching.

The death of the woman follows the death of a seven-year-old diabetic boy after he underwent a similar treatment in Sydney, Australia, last year.

A 64-year-old woman and two men, who are 51 and 53 years old, have been arrested on charges of manslaughter following the death of Carr-Gomm.

The woman's son, Matthew, 43, said that his mother became a “victim of false hope.”

“She had a lifelong fear of needles so diabetes was probably the worst illness she could get. That's why she was so interested in trying alternative therapies,” Mathew said.

“I'm sure that if she had not taken this treatment, she would still be alive today,” he added.

(Scroll down for video) A mother is filed a lawsuit against her teenage son, seeking a court order that will prohibit him from completing a sex change from a boy to a girl, according to court documents in Minnesota.

Anmarie Calgaro is also suing St. Louis County, two health-care providers and the St. Louis County School District, after they initiated the sex change procedure without her consent.

Calgaro told the court that officials at the school worked with her 17-year-old son to complete the sex change without her permission or a court order.

A state law allows teens to seek medical procedures or treatment without parental permission. Calgaro claims that the state law violates her constitutional rights as a parent.

Calgaro said that officials at Park Nicollet Health Services and Fairview Health Services, are not allowing her to review her son’s medical records.

The State Medical Assistance funds are helping the teen live in an apartment independently and pay for medications, including powerful narcotics and hormonal medications to help with the sex change.

Calgaro is not opposed to the sex change, but she wants her son to take things slowly and be sure about his path in life before doing anything drastic.
