    Default Snopes Daily News

    I didn't realize that Snopes had a Daily News feature; it features a collection of odd news stories from around the world. I like the one about the couple having sex on a railway who were crushed by a train; it appeals to my twisted sense of humour!

    In-Store Porn Leads To Arrests
    By Amy Sherrill
    Times Record •

    Two 20-year-old men were arrested Wednesday in connection with playing a pornographic DVD at a local Walmart on store display televisions, police said.

    Cody Allen Sexton, 20, and Kenny Dean Andrews, 20, of Muldrow were booked into the Sebastian County Adult Detention Center on a felony obscenity complaint, according to jail records.

    “They thought they were just pulling a prank,” said Sgt. Levi Risley of the Fort Smith Police Department.

    Sexton and Andrews — an employee of the store — allegedly removed a promotional DVD from a DVD player built into a display in the furniture aisle at Walmart, 8301 Rogers Ave., at about 10:45 p.m. Sept. 3, according to police reports.

    The DVD player was connected to six televisions in the store.

    “The pornographic DVD was visible to the general public as they were shopping,” according to a police report.

    Eventually, a customer notified a manager and the DVD was removed from the player, according to the police report.

    Authorities released the store surveillance video to KFSM Channel 5 to air on the Crime Stoppers segment on the 10 p.m. newscast Tuesday and within six minutes of the broadcast, someone called Crime Stoppers with the identity of the two suspects, said Risley.

    Crime Stoppers is a cooperative effort between law enforcement and KFSM, according to the Police Department’s Web site.

    Here's some of today's featured stories: - Teens cited for burger ‘rap' in drive-thru

    Teens cited for burger ‘rap' in drive-thru
    October 29, 2009

    AMERICAN FORK -- Four Utah County teenagers are upset after their trip to an American Fork McDonald's, where they tried to rap out their order through the drive-thru. They didn't leave with a Happy mMeal; rather they were given a citation by police for disorderly conduct.

    The teens claim they were just having some fun. It was their rendition of a popular rap that can be seen and heard in videos on YouTube. But McDonald's employees and police say it wasn't about the rap -- it came down to the teens refusing to stop and causing an incident at the restaurant.

    The four teenagers -- one of whom is 18, the rest 17 -- tried singing out their order through the intercom, in rap style. Employees said they couldn't understand, and that eventually led to police being called.

    Sgt. Gregg Ludlow, with the American Fork Police Department, said, "The order taker asked them to please speak their order so she could understand them. Again they refused. This went on for a couple of different times, then the manager got on and asked them to speak their order or leave. Again they just continued, so the manager went outside and told them to speak their order or leave, and these individuals, according to the manager, they began swearing and drove off."

    One of the teens, Spencer Dauwalder, said nobody was in line, and he and his friends left without ever purchasing anything.

    "We thought, you know, just teenagers out having fun," Dauwalder told KSL Newsradio in a phone interview. "We didn't think it would escalate to that."

    The McDonald's manager took down the license plate number and called police. Officers tracked the car down and gave all four teens the equivalent of a speeding ticket on the charge of disorderly conduct for disrupting business.

    Speaking about the incident on KSL's Doug Wright show, one of the teens defended what happened and questioned why police took a joke so seriously. They said their parents were siding with them.

    "They weren't mad at us. We told them our side of the story, and they said, just like you said, it's a little ridiculous and it kind of just goes in a downward spiral of all of this. They're more upset at the McDonald's and how the manager handled the whole situation," the teen told Doug Wright.

    The teens all face a fine, if they are convicted.

    Spencer's mother, Sharon Dauwalder, said the parents planned to fight the charges.

    "It was basically harmless," she said. "It wasn't interfering with anything, and it's just hard to believe a ticket would be issued for that."

    There are claims the teens used vulgar language and the workers felt threatened. Spencer Dauwalder said one swear word was used by one of his friends, and it wasn't spoken in a threatening manner.

    Thursday evening McDonald's franchisee Conny Kramer released a statement saying: "The safety and well-being of my employees and customers is a top priority. At this time, these are just allegations. We strongly caution anyone from jumping to conclusions about this matter, without having all the facts."

    He said the police were called based on the actions of the teens, but not as a result of them rapping their order.

    Man says he stabbed himself because he didn't want to work - The Denver Post

    Man says he stabbed himself because he didn't want to workBy Howard Pankratz
    The Denver Post

    A 29-year-old man who claimed he was attacked and stabbed by three people - skinheads or Hispanic males - confessed Monday night that he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work, Edgewater Police said today.

    The man, Aaron Siebers, walked into his employer, the Blockbuster Video store at 1921 Sheridan about 6:30 p.m. Monday, and reported the attack. He said the trio was dressed in black.

    Siebers, of Denver, had a deep stab wound to the lower leg plus several superficial knife wounds, according to Steve Davis, spokesman for the Edgewater Police Department.

    Five police agencies responded to the scene. In addition to Edgewater police, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, Mountain View Police, Lakeside

    Police and Lakewood Police Department officers set up a large perimeter and began a manhunt for the suspects.

    K-9 units were brought into search for the perpetrators.

    Siebers was taken to Saint Anthony's Hospital where he was treated. He received numerous stitches to close the leg wound, said Davis.

    Davis said detectives went to the hospital and interviewed Siebers and also reviewed videos from a nearby Target store, which had numerous surveillance cameras. A review of the cameras showed no attack had taken place near the Target store as Siebers claimed, said Davis.

    After Siebers was released from the hospital, detectives again questioned him. They confronted him with the evidence from the surveillance cameras and his changing stories about who attacked him, said Davis.

    At that point, Siebers confessed and told them he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work, said the police spokesman.

    Davis said Siebers had taken a bus from Denver to the Blockbuster store in Edgewater. The surveillance video from the Target store showed him walking from the bus stop to the store without any indication he was suffering from a deep stab wound, said Davis.

    Siebers was arrested and charged with false reporting and obstructing a police officer, both misdemeanors. He was taken to the Jefferson County Jail.

    "If you are going to concoct a story about being stabbed, don't do it near a Target store," said Davis.

    Associated Press .

    PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - Officials say a Florida Panhandle Fish and Wildlife officer lost a 5-foot alligator after bringing it to his daughter's school for show and tell.

    Searchers scoured a wooded area surrounding the school Friday afternoon. The alligator jumped out of the man's vehicle Friday morning. The animal's mouth was taped.

    Fish and Wildlife Spokesman Stan Kirkland says alligators have "amazing" jumping ability and that allowed it to escape.
