#3 - I'll Drink to That DUI
A 19-year-old Texas man has retreated into his shell after a botched attempt to blow up turtles.
The teen suffered injuries to his hand, lower extremities and face after a bomb he made detonated while en route to a local bayou – where he and his 18-year-old buddy had plans to go "blow up turtles."
At some point, the 19-year-old lit a cigar, and the ashes fell near his pocket where he was carrying the explosive cartridges. Local police say it’s likely the ashes ignited the cartridges.
The 18-year-old was not injured in the explosion. So far there have been no arrests made in connection with the incident. (KHOU)
An Idaho woman found trouble on tap when she decided to pick up a box of wine at a convenience store and down the whole thing in the store bathroom without paying for it.
Karen King was busted after a store employee saw her disappear into the john for an unusually long time – then emerge, staggering, leaving the empty box behind. Cops located her shortly afterward, and took her to a hospital due to her high level of intoxication.
King was arrested the day before for stealing another box of wine at a different store. In that incident, she left the store with the wine and drank it at home. (KTVB)
A Illinois woman who was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence told cops that she'd had one too many because she was celebrating a special occasion - the reinstatement of her driver's license following a DUI suspension.
Erin James was cuffed in the wee hours of the morning after a patrolman pulled her over for speeding, then smelled alcohol on her when she got out of the car. While being questioned, she admitted that she was driving a friend's car to dodge the ignition lock on her own car, which was set to shut the vehicle down if she had consumed booze and she'd downed enough to register twice the legal limit on the blood alcohol test.
The police chief said, "Ms. James is exactly the type of motorist I want kept off the road permanently." (NBC)
