An Arkansas teenager ended up punking herself after sending a prank text about a fictitious murder to a random phone number which belonged to a local cop.
The 16-year-old texted the note, "I hid the body. Now what?" to an unknown number in imitation of an idea she saw posted on Pinterest. Her giggles hadn't even died down before cops traced the call to her phone, and showed up at her door for a little talk.
She was detained briefly, but released with a warning.

A slaughterhouse worker in New Zealand got a bit of a bum steer when a bullet bounced off the head of a cow he was restraining and lodged in his shoulder.
The 18-year-old was hit after one of his co-workers attempted to kill the animal, whose head proved a little sturdier than was expected. The critter was knocked unconscious by the shot, but otherwise unharmed until it was shot a second time by deputies arriving on the scene.
The worker is in critical condition in an Auckland hospital.

Cops pulled over a pickup truck that kept swerving and hitting the curb because they assumed they'd find a drunk behind the wheel. They were wrong they found three drunks sprawled out in the passenger seats, but a totally sober fifth grader gamely trying to drive her mom and mom's pals home.
A police spokesperson said, "We have a lot of farm kids that do know how to drive big equipment and stuff like that, but as far as putting an 11-year-old behind the wheel and driving in town, that's probably not a good idea."
