HE WON'T SKATE ON THIS CHARGE

A Minnesota man is cooling his heels after being arrested for driving drunk -- in the Zamboni he was operating at a local hockey rink.

The driver was tearing across the ice erratically between periods of a pee-wee league game, bouncing off the boards and driving folks away from front row seats. The coach of the home team called 911 after 25 minutes of the bizarre display, and the driver failed a field sobriety test.

The man has not been formally charged yet. He was convicted of drunken driving in 2002 and twice in 1999.

YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT TO THE BANK

An Illinois man was arrested after pulling into a bank's drive-thru lane in an attempt to make an unauthorized deposit - but not one involving cash.

Dustin Kraushaar began his transaction innocently enough, but then reached down and exposed himself -- to quote the police record, "in order to arouse his sexual desires." When the teller called for help, the 20-year-old abandoned his plan to pull a fast one, driving off in a hurry and managing to evade police.

He turned himself in a short time later and was charged with public indecency.

COW-A-BUNGA!

Two Ohio farmers were searching for a way to put their cows in a really good moo-o-o-o-d, so they came up with an idea that some would consider all wet - a waterbed for each and every one of them.

Richard and David Conrad decided to butter up the critters in order to increase milk production, so they invested nearly $70,000 for 240 waterbeds designed especially for bovine use. The Conrads say that the cows are happier, and just like that commercial says, the happy cows produce better tasting, better-quality milk.

As Richard Conrad says, "You make them happy, they'll make you happy."
