Not Just Horsin' Around

A Florida man's lack of horse sense landed him behind bars -- after he hauled off and slugged a police horse on a busy street in downtown Gainesville.

Olawale Agbede smacked Rusty the stallion across the flank at least four times around closing time on Saturday night, but the steed did not respond, moving away each time a blow landed. Agbede told police that he was afraid the horse was about to knock him over and insists he only struck the critter twice.

He faces charges of interfering with a police animal -- a charge that we're sure prosecutors can make hay out of. Source: Gainesville Sun

 

The Leg Bone is Connected to... Ewww!

A Swedish woman proved herself to be bad to the bone after being arrested for using human remains as sex toys because, she claims, she has an interest in history.

The woman, whose name was not released, was charged with "violating the peace of the dead" by obtaining the bones and using them for her bedroom escapades. Police admit that there's no evidence she obtained the skeleton parts in any illicit way, but have still opted to press charges, citing the obscure statute.

The prosecutor in the case says, "I have never heard of a case like this and neither have my colleagues, so I dare to say that this kind of case is quite uncommon."

Smoked Venison

A Texas man found himself on the wrong end of a deer hunt when he was attacked by an angry buck, who knocked him down and then added insult to injury by stealing a pack of his cigarettes!

Joseph Rose was hanging out in his front yard when he was approached by the critter, which seemed friendly. He approached the deer, thinking they could become friends, but the buck had other ideas, charging at him and forcing him into the bed of his pickup truck -- then running off with the smokes that he'd dropped during the chase.

Rose said that the nicotine fit got the best of the deer, noting, "[He climbed up [into the truck cab], put his front paws on my seat and got my pack of cigarettes and started chewing on them." A game warden arrived soon afterward and used a stun gun to subdue the creature -- something that we're sure a whole lot of folks have had to do on loved ones with failed New Year's resolutions to quit smoking. Source: KETK
