A Florida man is in hot water after breaking into a luxury apartment building ... in order to get into hot water.
Torey Leonard entered into the building quietly in order to use a hot tub that was located in a common area. He insisted he was only following doctor's orders, since his anemia required him to keep up his body temperature, and he was getting cold.
A judge released Leonard on $25 bail after asking him if he could please treat his condition without breaking and entering.

A Georgia man was clearly having a "ruff" afternoon when cops swung by his house to give him a ticket for violating his town's noise laws by barking loud enough to disturb a neighbor more than 100 yards away.
The man, who was intoxicated when cops arrived, denied that he was making any noise at all, and when asked to present identification so that a citation could be written, he replied that some people called him The Holy Lamb of God.
The man refused to sign the citation, police said.

A Canadian man who was pulled over for speeding gave the trooper in question the finger, but he didn't get in trouble for the act, since he was on his way to the hospital to get that finger re-attached.
The deputy stopped the speeding vehicle, and saw that the passenger had a bloody digit in a plastic bag. The driver told her that his friend had severed the finger while working on his motorcycle and was working against the clock to make it to the emergency room on time.
The trooper moved the injured man to her cruiser and transported him to the hospital earning a commendation for her work instead of a scolding for not writing the ticket.
