ICE, ICE BABY!

The heat may be off two Massachusetts men charged with stealing the head off of a giant ice sculpture because the evidence melted before they could go to trial.

William B. Hare and Rajendra Srivastava allegedly stole the frozen artwork, which depicted a dragon's head, from a Chinese New Year celebration. Cops impounded the sculpture and put it into cold storage, only to have it melt when the freezer overheated.

HAY NOW, THAT'S NOT
NICE!

A Florida man might be getting triple-crowned by the court system after he was busted for drunkenly punching a police horse during a scuffle after the NBA All-Star game over the weekend.

Josue Santana pulled the horse, named Shamrock, down to his level by his nose, and then punched the hapless creature, sending it tumbling to the ground. Shamrock injured his leg in the spill, and hasn't been able to return to work, but Santana managed to post bail shortly thereafter.

SPEEDY APPLICATION

A California man proved he had nothing to hide by walking into a welding shop to ask for a job - while completely naked.

Jose Ayala, who said he was high on meth, was captured on surveillance video, wandering around and speaking incoherently. He was calm until cops arrived at which point he became violent, grabbing a female cop's hair before deputies and the shop owner subdued him.

Shop owner Chris Johnson said, "He said something about looking for work, and he was good with his hands. I didn't know why a naked dude would be in my shop."
