A woman in Killeen, Texas, was arrested and charged with assault after allegedly swinging a stripper pole at her boyfriend.
Police answering reports of a domestic disturbance found Sarah Howell crying on her bed, claiming that her boyfriend had beat her. But he was the one covered in scratches, with grass in his hair. He produced cell phone footage of her trying to knock down a door, slapping him and splashing hot oil on him. Although he didn’t get this one on video, he says she then swung a pink stripper pole at his head.
Howell’s bail was set at $5,000. (Killeen Daily Herald)
A Florida woman is facing a drug charge after encouraging a police officer to get nosy during a traffic stop – by asking her if the inside of her vehicle smelled like marijuana to her.
The 47-year-old suspect rolled through a stop sign while not wearing a seat belt, leading the deputy to pull her over. The officer said that the woman appeared to be nervous, then asked, “Do you smell that? Don’t that smell like weed?” Apparently, it did, so the cop called to request a sniffer dog for a second opinion – and the pooch unearthed a pipe and a small amount of pot hidden under a rug.
The woman said she often lets others drive her car and didn’t know anything about the contraband, but she must appear in court next week anyway. (NW Florida Daily News)
