WIPE OUT!

Officials in Trenton, New Jersey, are facing serious trouble with the public square -- the two-ply kind, that is.

The town has a money shortage that has it down to less than a half-case of toilet paper -- which needs to be stretched between police and fire stations, museums, and City Hall, among other places.

Right now, there's a contractual hold up that may force city employees to hold it for quite a while once supplies run out, which is expected to happen later this week.

MIGHT AS WELL JUMP

A Louisiana man knew he couldn't walk a straight line, so he came up with a unique way to show cops he was sober by jumping off a 24-mile long bridge into frigid water.

Deputies pulled over Thomas Harter about halfway across New Orleans' Causeway bridge, after observing him swerving wildly around cars. When asked to come out of the car with his registration, he exited with an armload of CDs, then took a flying leap over the protective fence.

Rescuers found him clinging to a nearby piling and dragged him out of the water so he could be booked on DUI charges for the eighth time.

PRISON BREAK...IN REVERSE

Breaking out of jail is totally old hat, but a Seattle man made things a little more interesting earlier this week when he surprised authorities by trying to break in to the King County Jail.

The man, who was not identified, was spotted trying to jimmy open a door on jail property. When that didn't work he climbed a fence and made it into a secure area, where he was taken into custody.

He declined to reveal the reason for his mysterious break-in.
