Junk In The Trunk... And In The Head

A Minnesota woman is facing child endangerment charges after encouraging her nephew to be careful while riding in her newly-upholstered luxury car – by forcing him to ride in the trunk!

Susan McCarty forced the 11-year-old into the trunk on the way home from an amusement park visit because she didn't want him to get water from a flume rided on the leather seats. She might have gotten away with it, but a pair of eyewitnesses called cops to report the oddball seating arrangement, and McCarty was followed and cited.

The woman did provide air holes for the boy to breathe easily, and his sister said he was "pretty excited" about the whole situation. She faces up to a year in jail if convicted. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)


Now That's A Hunting Dog

A French outdoorsman found out just how good his hunting dog was after the pooch shot him while they were out trying to bag a deer.

The gentleman, identified only as Rene, had to have his right hand amputated when the dog, excited at the prospect of getting up close and personal with Bambi, lunged at his shotgun and discharged it, pretty much obliterating the appendage. Rene, who had to be rushed to the hospital, was left in pain, but didn't point fingers at the pup, who's still on his list of man's best friends.

He told a reporter,  "It wasn't the dog's fault. He's adorable. I should have left the safety on." (News.Com)


Don't Let The Door Hit You

Florida cops had an open and shut case against a bungling burglar who thought he could rob a friend with a minimum of effort – by stealing his automatic garage door opener to gain access to the place.

One of the victim's neighbors reportedly heard noise in the apartment when it should have been empty, went down to check, and found Michael Loy standing there holding a piece of meat to be grilled. She told Loy to hit the road, which he did – but not before stealing cigarettes, some chow and some oxycodone pills.

After deputies grilled Loy, they hauled him to the jail, where he remains on no bond due to violating his probation for a grand theft earlier this year. (Florida Sun-Sentinel)
