A toast to closing down the airport


burnt toastA Ver­mont air­port was evac­u­ated early Fri­day morn­ing because an employee called in emer­gency ser­vices to inves­ti­gate an odd smell. The sit­u­a­tion drew mul­ti­ple fire com­pa­nies to the Burling­ton Inter­na­tional Air­port and forced pas­sen­gers out of the ter­mi­nal while an inves­ti­ga­tion was con­ducted. After check­ing the elec­tri­cal sys­tems and search­ing for sus­pi­cious pack­ages, the fire­fight­ers dis­cov­ered they could’ve just loafed around – since the whole sit­u­a­tion was caused by some burnt toast. Pas­sen­gers got to go back inside after a 30-minute delay.

The Indi­anapo­lis Met­ro­pol­i­tan Police Depart­ment said a man called to report a naked dude had just jumped onto his truck! After being told to get out, the naked man then attempted to jump onto the back of a white van. Where he finally put on a pair of black sweat pants. Offi­cers arrived and spot­ted Michael Copelad, 37, walk­ing across the street with his pants pulled down expos­ing his rear end. Police said they dis­cov­ered two bag­gies that belonged to Copeland and con­tained cocaine and mar­i­juana.  The sus­pect, allegedly refused orders to get into the police van, so his ankles were bound and he was lifted into the vehicle.

Imag­ine it’s a Sun­day night and you’re sound asleep dream­ing of lord knows what and you’re awaken by a bul­let in your shoul­der.  That’s what hap­pened to Heather Goutremount who lives below David White. White  told police he was “play­ing around” with the weapon and the gun sim­ply dis­charged, and a bul­let shot through the floor and into the apart­ment below.  Goutremont’s hus­band, Vin­cent also noted that their one-year-old child was sleep­ing six feet away from where the bul­let hit his wife. White was arrested and charged with reck­less endan­ger­ment, along with mar­i­juana pos­ses­sion and ille­gal pos­ses­sion of a pre­scrip­tion drug.
