Wildlife officials in Utah are hoping a civilian acts like a hero – by turning in a man wanted for impersonating a goat.
The rangers became aware of the b-a-a-a-ad behavior after someone took to a photo sharing website to post pictures of a man dressed head to hoof in a goat outfit, mingling with the real-life critters that populate the mountains around the town of Ogden. While there's not an official law on the books against it, authorities say that the person is putting himself in danger, since goats tend to be aggressive in protecting their territory.
When asked if he knew the reason for the bizarre game of dress-up, a spokesman for the Division of Wildlife Resources said, "I’ve been trying to figure that all day.” (FOX 13)
A Georgia woman is getting a second chance to say "cheese" – after calling 911 to complain about the poor quality of her mugshot, which was published in a national crime journal.
Tonya Ann Fowler called the emergency number in an agitated state after she saw a copy of Bad and Busted – and laid eyes on her booking photo from a prior trespassing charge. Despite being told that the number was reserved for people reporting actual emergencies, she refused to cut the call short, leading cops to head out and take her into custody for disorderly conduct and misuse of 911.

A New Mexico man was hauled in by cops after he drunkenly crashed his car in a neighbor's yard, and proceeded to water her lawn – in an unconventional, unsanitary manner.
The man, whose name was not released, drove into a decorative wall at the side of the woman's house, knocking down a 60-foot section, and emerged from the vehicle unhurt. According to eyewitnesses, he staggered a few feet away, then unzipped his pants and urinated over a wide swath of the lawn. Sarah Bonneau says the man showed up the next morning to apologize, and admit he didn't remember anything about the incident. (KOB)
