Utah police are looking for a spin doctor after being accused of a civil rights violation for putting a teenager through the spin cycle.
19-year-old Chandler Rose was boozing it up at a house party when cops decided to stage a raid. Fearing he'd be all washed up if he got arrested, Rose hid in a dryer where officers spotted him and thought it would be amusing to turn the thing on.
The teen recalls being pulled out of the dryer for questioning, but says, "I was unconscious and I couldn't talk very good." He's hired a lawyer to do the talking for him because the cops "acted like a bunch of immature high schoolers." (ABC 4)
Some gamblers in the Ukraine say they plan to bring home the bacon by betting on soccer game results predicted by a psychic pig.
The pig has shown an uncanny knack for picking winners - much like his predecessor, Paul the Octopus. The folks behind soccer's Western Championships issued a statement calling the critter, whose name was not released, "an oracle hog" and promised he'd weigh in on every game.
That's the lesson a Florida teenager learned when he started mouthing off to his mom, only to have his little brother step in and defend her -- by threatening the older sibling with a weapon made of foam.
The 19-year-old, a manager at a local Papa John's pizza, reportedly displayed "verbal aggression" against his mom, which didn't sit well with the chivalrous younger teen who responded to his brother's demand of "hit me" by doing just that.
A brawl ensued and the older son was taken away on charges of domestic battery. (NWF Daily News)
