Cyclist Gets Free Ride in Windshield of Drunk Driver

Suspected drunk driver doesn’t notice the cyclist he hit stuck in his windshield, drives home

Odd News
Let’s start off with the good news: Steven Gove, the cyclist who was hit by a supposedly intoxicated driver this past weekend, did not suffer any seriousinjuries and appears to be doing ok. He’s fortunate in that sense, considering what happened. As the Green Bay Press Gazette reports, the Manitowoc, Wisconsin resident was riding home on his bicycle after delivering editions of the Lakeshore Chronicle. On the way, an as-of-now unnamed driver struck him in a way that caused Gove to get stuck in the car’s windshield.
Gove never lost consciousness, nor did he seem to lose his cool, when he was all of the sudden stuck in a stranger’s car. He told the Press Gazette, “Everything was in the car except for my knees and feet. I turned to him and said, ‘Hello, I’m the guy you hit on the bicycle.’ I had no idea at all why he wasn’t acknowledging me.”
That’s right, the driver had no idea that someone was in his car. He kept going, hitting a vehicle along the way. As WLUK Fox 11 News reports, it was about that time that a witness noticed what was happening and called 911. She followed the impaired driver to his house. That’s right, the driver kept driving all the way home.
The driver started to lock up his car when he finally noticed Gove, who had managed to climb all the way into the car. Gove recalled to WLUK, “Then he saw me sitting in his car and he said, 'Who are you?' What are you doing in there?' I said, 'I'm the guy you hit on the bicycle. I went through your windshield!'"
(Green Bay Press Gazette)
Gove got out of the car and walked away. Despite the ordeal, he only had some scratches. The driver suffered a more severe cut on his hand. Police arrived and arrested the driver. He has since posted bail and no charges have been filed yet.
Meanwhile, Mr. Gove is kind of amazing. He told the Press Gazette, ““I have no malice toward [the driver]. I hope he can get his life straightened out. He’s a young man. He deserves a second chance.” When he is feeling better, Gove plans on returning to his newspaper route, and overall is, “happy to be alive.”

Arkansas Nightmare

JANUARY 15--A naked woman wearing a pair of angel wings was arrested early yesterday after police spotted her walking on an Arkansas street.
Christine Lawrence, 47, was busted for indecent exposure after a pair of Mountain Home Police Department officers responded to a 3:20 AM call about “a female walking down the middle of the road with nothing on besides angel wings,” according to a police report.
When one patrolman sought to speak with Lawrence, she fled into her nearby Circle Drive residence. As Lawrence was subsequently being arrested, she struggled with police, leading to an additional charge of resisting arrest.
The police report does not indicate why Lawrence was promenading in her birthday suit, though yesterday happened to be her birthday.
Seen in the above mug shot, Lawrence was booked into the Baxter County jail on the two misdemeanor charges. She remains locked up in lieu of $790 bond, and is scheduled for a February 4 court appearance.

She Hid Her Gun Where?
Consider: On the morning of Jan. 4, Jennifer McCarthy, 48, a Santa Fe, N.M., artist and former wife of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy, was arrested on felony assault charges after her boyfriend claimed she threatened him and pulled a Smith & Wesson handgun out of her vagina, according to a Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department document published by The Smoking Gun. 
The boyfriend, whose name was redacted in the arrest report, told a sheriff’s deputy the couple had argued and that McCarthy had left the residence, then returned and went into her bedroom. Shortly thereafter, the boyfriend told the officer, she emerged from the bedroom “wearing lingerie and a silver handgun in her vagina.” The boyfriend told the cops that McCarthy then “started to have inner course [sic] with the gun and stated, ‘Who is crazy, you or me?’”
It was at that point, the boyfriend told the deputy, that “Jennifer pulled the gun out and pointed the gun at his head.” The boyfriend told the officer that he grabbed the gun and threw it in the toilet, and when McCarthy tried to retrieve it, he “put it in the trash can outside.” 
Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Zook, the investigating officer, reported that he did find a gun in a trash can. 
McCarthy’s version, according to Deputy Zook’s report, differed considerably from the boyfriend’s. “She stated they started to yell at each other and he told her not to touch him again,” Deputy Zook reported. “Jennifer advised she touched his shoulder with her index finger to aggravate him… Jennifer stated she was not in fear of [the boyfriend] straggling [sic] her or hurting her by putting his hand on her neck. Jennifer advised [the boyfriend] put his hand on her neck to keep her away from him. Jennifer informed me she did have a gun at the time and is unsure where it’s located. She advised the gun has been missing for a while.” 
McCarthy, who divorced Cormac McCarthy in 2006 after eight years of marriage, was “booked on Aggravated Assault on a Household member,” according to Zook’s report. She is the mother of the boy said to be the model for the child in McCarthy’s novel The Road.
The original dispute that led to the arrest? According to the arresting officer, the couple was arguing over … space aliens.

Man - Monkey in Banana Heist

NEWINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Call it the case of the banana-eating bandit.
Police in Connecticut say they're looking for a man who smashed his vehicle into a gas station in Newington, swiped a banana from a shelf and ate it before leaving early Wednesday morning. Nothing else was taken.
The store's surveillance video shows a Ford Freestyle with Connecticut license plates backing repeatedly into the store and breaking the glass doors, which set off the burglar alarm at about 2 a.m.
The man was gone before police arrived.
Authorities describe him as a black man who was wearing a brown hat, dark jacket and dark pants. Police say the station wagon has damage to the driver's side taillight and rear bumper.
