>A Halfmoon man allegedly broke into his neighbor's house to save the family dog from a fire, Thursday night. However, there was no fire. Troopers say he was on LSD and hallucinating.

>Troopers say 43-year-old Michael Orchard of Inglewood Drive told them he mixed LSD with cough medicine Thursday afternoon and they found him, standing heroically with a dog in his arms outside of what he thought was a giant inferno.

>"He believed that the residence was on fire and he was rescuing the dog," said Trooper Mark Cepiel, Troop G spokesperson.

>Neighbors tell NewsChannel 13 Orchard went around the neighborhood banging on doors yelling about a fire. Since no one would help, because there was no fire. The animal lover took matters into his own hands to save the dog, allegedly driving his black BMW sedan through the fence. Troopers say once Orchard got through this fence with his vehicle, he got out, went up to the back door, smashed through it and went inside to save the family's large white dog.

>Orchard was charged with second-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief and put in county jail on $15,000 bail.

>Neighbors didn't want to go on camera because they're scared of retribution in the tightly packed development. Several neighbors listed things Orchard has allegedly destroyed in the past.

>We asked Cepiel why there were no drug charges if Orchard was allegedly high.

>"He drove over yards and through the fence. At no point was he on the roadway and no illegal substances were found in his possession," said Cepiel.

>Troopers say Orchard was very cooperative. The developers say they've already ordered the victims a new door. The dog was unharmed.

>Gladys Coego, 74, a temporary Election Support Specialist for the Miami-Dade Elections Department tasked with opening mail-in ballots and scanning them into the machine, is accused of marking ballot choices that were originally left blank, according to CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald.

>She was allegedly caught red-handed by colleagues on Tuesday filling in ballots favoring Miami-Dade mayoral candidate Raquel Regalado. Investigators have initially determined that Coego has no affiliation or link with the Regalado campaign, however.

>Two men arrested last week in southern Georgia were planning to attack an aurora research facility owned by the University of Alaska Fairbanks around which conspiracy theories of mind control have long swirled, investigators said.

>Television station WALB in Georgia first reported Monday that investigators with the Coffee County Sheriff's Office arrested Michael Mancil, 30, and James Dryden Jr., 22, on Thursday and said "the massive amount of arsenal seized looked like something out of a movie, one where a small army was headed to war."

>Michael Vickers, a detective with the sheriff's office, told Alaska Dispatch News that both men confessed "that God told them to go and blow this machine up that kept souls, so souls could be released."


"All I can tell you is they were planning on blowing up the machine," Vickers said. "Going to try to find a scientist, to steal his car and ID badge to gain access. Any scientist."

>Vickers could not say what else the men might be charged with.

>"It is being investigated and there … could be more charges pending, but as of right now, there's nothing I can tell you," he said.

>Shenzhen police have reenacted a controversial punishment for drivers who improperly use their high beams at night, once again forcing those motorists to really see the error of their ways.

>Yesterday, the Shenzhen police's official Weibo account warned motorists that those caught driving with their brights on illegally would be made to stare straight into the blinding lights for an entire minute in order to teach them a lesson their corneas would not easily forget.

>Police added that drivers would also be fined 300 yuan, lose points on their license and be made to recite regulations on the proper use of headlights.

>The punishment has become one of the most highly-discussed topics on Chinese social media and has received near unanimous approval from netizens who have apparently been blinded one too many times.

>"Traffic police comrades, I believe this kind of punishment is not right, it's inhumane, they should have to look for 5 minutes," suggested one Weibo user.

>"The whole country should implement this immediately," wrote another.

>Still, there were others who were confused about how this could possibly a thing, considering that there is no Chinese law that prescribes this type of punishment.

>But, from shaming jaywalkers by making them "wear the green hat" to wielding badass sword-like batons, Shenzhen police have always marched to the sound of a different drum.

>"I admire the Shenzhen traffic police the most out of any force in the country. They really know how to have fun," commented one Weibo user.

>Argentina lost more airplanes during former Argentinian President Cristina Kirchner’s adminstration than the country did throughout the entire Falklands War.

>Defense Minister Julio Martinez said Kirchner and appointed officials lost 100 airplanes throughout her time in office, due mostly to a lack of proper maintenance.

>“We have to regain military capability,” Martinez said. “In the Falklands War, Argentina lost 70 aircraft, and in the last 10 years of Kirchnerism, for lack of maintenance and investment, 100 were lost.”

>According to a local media, the 12 years of Kirchner governing saw arms systems deprogrammed, as well as planes falling out of use due to a lack of spare parts.

>An important Mirage fighter reportedly took off for the last time in November 2015 at Tandil Air Force Base.

>Chinese websites have again blocked searches for "Fatty Kim the Third", as many Chinese mockingly call North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, with China's foreign ministry saying it did not approve of ridiculing foreign leaders.

>Chinese internet users began reporting last week that searches on the Twitter-like microblogging site Weibo and search engine Baidu for the expression returned no results, the normal sign that something is being blocked despite its wide usage.

The term - which refers to the weight of Kim, his father and grandfather - was last blocked in September after neighboring North Korea's latest nuclear test.

>Kim is unpopular in China because of his country's repeated nuclear and missile tests.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said reports the government had banned the search term "did not accord with the facts".

"What I want to stress is that China has always dedicated itself to constructing a rational, cultured and healthy environment for public opinion," Geng told a daily news briefing.

>China "does not approve of insulting or ridiculing language to address any country's leader", he added, without elaborating.

Both Baidu Inc and Sina Corp, which owns Weibo, declined to comment.

>China's internet regulator did not respond to a request for comment.

>Many Chinese, however, took to Weibo to suggest multiple other terms which sound similar to "Fatty Kim the Third" and which are not blocked.

>Berry and his roomate told 8News they walked into the CVS in Carytown and asked an employee if they sold sliced cheese. The worker kindly replied that they did not.

>A few minutes later, the employee — all of the store employees, in fact — were nowhere to be found. Berry and his roommate, Philip Blackwell, said they were in the store with another customer for more than 30 minutes alone before an officer with the Richmond Police Department showed up.

>“We looked around for probably 30, 45 minutes and we couldn’t find anybody,” Blackwell said.

In terms of fauna, it's dogs and durr which cause me the greatest concern, because they're the ones dumb enough to actually sprint toward the quarter-tonne fast-moving two-wheeled object, possess sufficient mass to pose a serious threat, and are actually quick enough to possibly intercept it "successfully".

Cats are smart enough to fuck off, turtles / tortoises are basically just FOD, and ni- er, raccoons and opossums are encountered relatively rarely as they generally try to spend as little time in the open as possible.

THATCHER — A man causing a ruckus, entering the yards of homes without permission, found himself cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, despite efforts by the police to get him home safely. At about 9 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, a Thatcher Police officer responded to an incident along North Reay Lane. There he found 51-year-old Danny Ray Hardesty yelling and walking through yards without permission.

The responding officer said there was a strong smell of alcohol coming from Hardesty and, when questioned if he was OK or if he had anything illegal on him, Hardesty reportedly said he was “all right.” He then reportedly took a bag of marijuana from his pocket and gave it to the officer.

The officer asked if Hardesty had a medical marijuana card and Hardesty said no, adding, “I am disabled” in slurred words.

Hardesty also reportedly said he had grown the marijuana with his “two hands,” adding, “I can do anything I want; I live in Arizona” and the officer was violating his “state of sobriety.” Hardesty was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia. The responding officer recovered .6 oz of marijuana.

A Des Moines woman facing a felony charge for allegedly voting twice in the 2016 general election has "significant mental deficits" and might not be competent to stand trial, her defense attorney wrote in a new filing.

Terri Lynn Rote, a registered Republican, was booked into jail Oct. 28 on a charge of first-degree election misconduct after investigators found that she cast an early ballot at the Polk County Election Office and then again at a satellite voting location, according to a police report.

Rote, 56, is currently scheduled to go to trial in February. But her court-appointed attorney, Jane White, filed a motion Tuesday asking a judge to order an evaluation to determine whether Rote is competent to stand trial.

White wrote that Rote is unable to stay focused for long periods and has other "cognitive limitations." Under Iowa law, a defendant must appreciate the nature of the charge, understand the court proceedings and be able to help prepare a defense for a case to move forward to trial, she wrote.

"It is unlikely that Defendant can assist in her defense or participate in the trial process," White wrote. "It is unknown if the Defendant has been diagnosed previously with a mental health disorder, but her interactions with counsel indicate to counsel that this may be the case."

A judge had not ruled on the motion as of Wednesday evening. But the proceedings would be put on hold if a judge does rule that an evaluation is necessary.

Rote admitted voting twice during an interview with Iowa Public Radio after her arrest. She feared that her first ballot for President-elect Donald Trump would be changed to a vote for Hillary Clinton.

"The polls are rigged," she told an IPR journalist.

Rote could face up to five years in prison if convicted.

Falcons loss is the biggest upset in Super Bowl history.


HOUSTON – If Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank gets to break out his viral dance moves one more time after Super Bowl LI on Sunday, he hopes his late mother is watching somewhere.

“She was a great dancer,” Arthur Blank told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. “The only thing I’m sad about Sunday is that she’s not going to be here with us. But I believe in my heart that she’s floating around up there someplace and looking down and clapping her hands and proud of her son and proud of our franchise.”

“He’s fiery and competitive in so many cool ways,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “I remember years and years ago when we would have some tough times and we would be talking at midnight or 1 in the morning about it postgame. He said, ‘This is why I have you here, so that we can vent on the same level as far as what our frustrations and agitations are about making sure that we can create the best team we can.’”

Said Blank: “That’s just kind of the way I’m wired. I don’t like to lose. And we didn’t come here to Houston to lose.”

He admits getting nerves for games, but he tries to control them – “partly because I think if not, you would go insane,” Blank said. He says he also wants to set the right example for his six children, his wife’s three and five grandchildren who are here this week.

He speaks of the Falcons’ soon-to-be-completed new home, the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, as an “iconic” venue that has become more unique as construction has unfolded. “I’m not a good person at saying no to good ideas and keep getting good ideas and keep saying yes to them,” Blank said.

He’s careful to say he doesn’t want to make a statement about one political party or president, but Blank makes his point clear when asked about protests that could occur outside NRG Stadium on Sunday – speaking among other things about a nation that “became great by the diversity that represents the history of this country and everybody coming from all over the world to fulfill their visions and their dreams” and needs to create more opportunities for the middle class.

“I care deeply about those values,” said Blank, who is Jewish. “It’s what drives all our foundation work and all of our businesses. So, I want to continue to support people who look for answers that are embracing and are inclusive, and not building either physical walls or emotional walls or walls of language. That’s not what’s made our country great.”

Those values surely were influenced by his parents as well, and in particular his mother, who was “a great folk dancer, classical dancer, pop dancer,” Blank said. “All of the women in my family are great dancers – my daughters, wife.”

Blank’s dance moves are … well, unorthodox. But he hasn’t been shy about showing them off, whether it was doing Cam Newton’s “dab” after the Falcons upset the Carolina Panthers late last season or getting down with receiver Mohamed Sanu on stage after the NFC Championship Game victory over the Green Bay Packers a couple weeks ago.

As long as the Falcons win, it seems, the spirit moves him.

“That’s just a dance of joy and emotion,” Blank said. “There’s not a lot of structure to it, but there is a lot of joy to it.”

Royal Navy sailors will no longer be able to watch pornography, even downloaded from the internet, or have explicit images by their beds.

The regulations have apparently been in place since before 2013 but are now being fully applied.

They were reportedly brought in after female naval servicemen said that pornography on naval vessels left them feeling intimidated.

The increased enforcement follows a review into the accessibility of ‘sexually explicit magazines and pornographic films’ on board.

Reportedly bosses are concerned that some of our 29,000 sailors are picking up pornography online or in South America and the Caribbean.

Montreal police are cracking down on combat sports like Brazilian jiu-jitsu and kickboxing, despite organizers insisting the sports are legal.

The Canadian Brazilian jiu-jitsu championship was postponed Sunday after Montreal police threatened to arrest participants. Police say the event violates a section of Canadian law that forbids sports containing strikes and kicks. The Canada Pro Jiu-Jitsu Championships was organised by the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation and the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation, and was supposed to feature more than 200 competitors from around the world. Organisers say police contacted them Friday to convey that event was illegal, and that any participant could be arrested. They've rescheduled the event for 5 March, at another, undisclosed, venue.

The championship has been held in Montreal for nine years, said Guy Mondreuil, who runs a Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio in Quebec City. This is the first time he has heard of police cracking down on a Brazilian jiu-jitsu event. "I don't know what's going on," Mr Mondreuil told the BBC. "It's not a good thing." Montreal police also cancelled a separate kickboxing event scheduled for the same day.

Organisers of the Canadian championship say Brazilian jiu-jitsu does not involve strikes with the hand, fists or feet, which are illegal in Canada. A spokesperson from Montreal's police force, Service de Police de la Ville de Montreal (SPVM) told the BBC that police received a complaint about both events, and were legally required to shut them down. According to section 83 of the Criminal Code of Canada, sports that contain "an encounter or fight with fists, hands or feet" are illegal, unless they are part of the International Olympic Committee programme. Neither kickboxing nor Brazilian jiu-jitsu are part of the Olympics.

But Albertho Mercedat, an organiser of the kickboxing event, says kickboxing is legal in Quebec, and the police have it wrong. "The SPVM continues to claim arbitrarily that kick-boxing is an illegal combat sport on its territory," , he wrote on Facebook, He said the event will be rescheduled for later in July, an that he is "convinced that the SPVM will positively change its position soon." The law banning combat sports outside the IOC was updated in 2013 to also allow provinces to regulate sports themselves, which paved the way for amateur mixed-martial arts (MMA) tournaments and Ultimate Fighting Championship events, ncluding in Quebec.

Organisers of the Canadian Brazilian jiu-jitsu championship say Brazilian jiu-jitsu should not be affected by section 83 at all, because it does not feature strikes by hands, fist, or feet. Instead, Brazilian jiu-jitsu focuses on grappling and ground fighting, where practitioners try and place their opponents in choke or joint holds. They say police may be confusing their sport with the Japanese form of jiu-jitsu, which does include strikes.

Also another guy got kicked off a flight and threatened with arrest after he had already been seated and served a drink.
>Fearns needed to return early so he paid about $1,000 for a full-fare, first-class ticket to Los Angeles. He boarded the aircraft at Lihue Airport on the island of Kauai, took his seat and enjoyed a complimentary glass of orange juice while awaiting takeoff.

>Then, as Fearns tells it, a United employee rushed onto the aircraft and informed him that he had to get off the plane.

>“I asked why,” he told me. “They said the flight was overfull.”

>Fearns, like the doctor at the center of that viral video from Sunday night, held his ground. He was already on the plane, already seated. He shouldn’t have to disembark.

>“That’s when they told me they needed the seat for somebody more important who came at the last minute,” Fearns said. “They said they have a priority list and this other person was higher on the list than me.”

>“I understand you might bump people because a flight is full,” Fearns said. “But they didn’t say anything at the gate. I was already in the seat. And now they were telling me I had no choice. They said they’d put me in cuffs if they had to.”

A doctor at a fertility clinic in the Mississippi capital of Jackson has made a startling revelation concerning a couple who sought treatment at the center. The married pair, who cannot be named to due to patient confidentiality restrictions, had been struggling to conceive and came to the clinic to take part in the IVF program.
“During the in vitro fertilization process, we take a DNA sample from both the male and female to get a profile of their genetic backgrounds,” the doctor involved told Mississippi Herald, whose name must also be suppressed to protect the identities of the patients.

“It’s just a routine thing, and we wouldn’t normally check to see if there was a relationship between the two samples, but in this case the lab assistant involved was shocked by the similarity of each profile.” The lab assistant summoned the doctor, who knew almost instantly that the patients must have been related. “My first reaction was that they must have been less-closely related; perhaps they were first cousins, which does happen sometimes. However, looking closer at the samples, I noticed there were way too many similarities.” The doctor consulted the patient’s files, and noted with shock that both had the exact same birth dates listed in 1984. “With this in mind, I was convinced that both patients were fraternal twins.”

The doctor now had a dilemma on his hands: did the married couple already know that they were twins, and had yet still married and now hoped to conceive a child together? Or were they blissfully unaware of the situation. “It was a titillating subject to raise, but I had to discuss it with them,” said the doctor with flushed cheeks and visible perspiration. During their next appointment at the clinic, the doctor did his best to break the news gently. “They burst out laughing when I asked them if they knew they were twins,” he said. “The husband said that a lot of people remarked on the fact that they shared the same birthdays, and looked similar to each other, but he said it was just a funny coincidence and that the couple were definitely not related. The poor man had no idea.”

After the doctor insisted that the DNA evidence proved the pair were twins, the couple started to take him more seriously. “The wife kept pleading with me to admit I was joking, and I wish that I was, but they had to know the truth,” said the doctor. Once the news had sunk in, the doctor tried to establish how the twin brother and sister had unknowingly wed each other. “From what we were able to piece together, the biological parents of the couple had died in a car crash when the couple were infants, and they had no close family willing to adopt them. They’d been taken into state care, and were adopted out to separate families. Due to a filing error, neither foster family had ever been told that their adopted child had a twin.”

The doctor explained that the couple had met during college, and a relationship between the pair soon flourished. “They were attracted to each other due to their similarities,” said the doctor. “The fact that they’d both been adopted, after their parents had died, meant they’d both experienced a similar childhood, and they felt they could really connect with each other. If only they had known the truth, it could have saved them so much pain later on.” For now, the couple are reported to be considering the future of their relationship. “I really hope they can work something out,” said the doctor. “For me, it’s a particularly unusual case because my job is all about helping couples conceive a child. This is the first time my career has been like my japanese animes.”

From a legal standpoint, marriage between siblings in Mississippi is prohibited and subject to a prison term of up to 10 years. However, the maximum fine is only $500, which critics have claimed encourages marriage between siblings or close relatives. In this case, however, it is believed the couple involved will not face charges due to the unique circumstances of their case.

JERSEY CITY -- A 40-year-old Hoboken man with a history of using urine as a weapon has been charged with urinating on a Hoboken police officer at police headquarters Wednesday.

Kenny B. Roberts, of the 300 block of Bloomfield Avenue, is charged with throwing bodily fluids at a police officer and hindering apprehension, the criminal complaint says. In October 2015 he was charged with a similar offense after he was picked up on a drug charge.

>“He was becoming very nervous,” Tom DuCharme Jr owner of the Micky D’s, told The Post.

>He confirmed local reports on Monday afternoon, saying he tried to stall the Facebook murder suspect by telling him that his order wasn’t ready yet.

>“It will be a minute for the fries,” DuCharme recalled telling Stevens.

>But the killer was not lovin’ it.

>“No, I can’t wait!” Stephens snapped, according to the owner.

>“I need my nuggets now!” he said.

>Stephens paid for the food, then stepped on the gas and peeled off with just the McNuggets, Ducharme said.
Troopers were in hot pursuit seconds later and caught up with him about 2 miles away.

>A man described as one of the ringleaders in the 2012 theft of $18.7 million worth of maple syrup has been sentenced to eight years in prison, but that term could be extended if he can't pay his multimillion-dollar fine.

>On Friday, a Trois-Rivières, Que., judge handed Richard Vallières his eight-year sentence and fined him nearly $9.4 million.

>If Vallières does not pay the fine, he will have to spend an additional six years behind bars.

>The elaborate maple syrup robbery involved 3,000 tonnes of syrup from a warehouse belonging to the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers — the regulatory body that controls and manages the syrup trade.

>The heist was discovered when a routine inventory check in July 2012 turned up an empty barrel that was supposed to be full of syrup. Officials with the federation quickly realized that dozens of its barrels contained not syrup, but water.

>The resulting investigation by Quebec provincial police led to the arrests of 26 people.

>Vallières was found guilty of theft, fraud and trafficking stolen goods. During his trial in Quebec Superior Court, he said that he had filled the barrels with water. His lawyer argued he had been coerced to fill the barrels with water by a man who carried a gun.

>But witnesses called by the Crown painted him as one of the ringleaders of the heist.

>Vallières's co-accused, his father Raymond, and a New Brunswick-based syrup reseller, Etienne St-Pierre, have also been found guilty for roles in the robbery.

>All three men are appealing their convictions.

>On Monday night, Colgate University officials warned that there was an armed person on campus and advised people to find a safe place. For several hours, the campus remained locked down.

>Everyone was safe. There was no gunman, police later determined. But many students were angry when they learned the reason for the alarm: Someone called Colgate’s Campus Safety when they saw a black student who had a glue gun that he was using for a school project.

>A senior at Colgate described the person who prompted the lockdown as a freshman who “ran fearing for his life having heard that there were reports of an active shooter on campus. … a SWAT team, a tank, and police units from across the area were called in, all because some random person saw a black man with a glue gun and assumed the worst.”

>Patterson's attorney claims that his client accidentally choked Marquinez during oral sex. To prove it, attorney Ken Padowitz wants a Broward County judge to allow Patterson to show his penis to the jury.


>Padowitz said in a motion filed earlier this month that he intends to call Wright, a former Broward County medical examiner, as an expert witness to testify that Marquinez's death "is consistent with being accidentally sexually asphyxiated during oral sex."
