Baby almost on board - Police said a cou­ple were trav­el­ing on Inter­state 290 on their way to their hos­pi­tal when they expe­ri­enced a tire blowout! Luck­ily, an ambu­lance and a Trans­porta­tion Depart­ment crew responded to the scene and fixed the tire in time for the cou­ple to make it to the hos­pi­tal before their baby was born!

Funny, this doesn’t look like you - William Kyle Camp­bell, 18, was taken into cus­tody after the sheriff’s office received reports of sus­pi­cious men on bicy­cles.  Camp­bell allegedly dropped a GPS device and a pair of gloves when con­fronted by deputies.  Camp­bell was also found to be car­ry­ing two flash­lights, a wal­let, a ring, a woman’s ear­ring, two neck­laces, sun­glasses, a large num­ber of coins and an MP3 player he claimed belonged to his sis­ter.  The funny thing is that one deputy dis­cov­ered another deputy’s fam­ily photo on the MP3 player and the deputy’s sister-in-law said it had been stolen from her car, inves­ti­ga­tors said Camp­bell was arrested.

What NOT to wear on a night on the town - Suf­folk County police arrested 23-year-old Kevin Daly because he crashed into an officer’s vehi­cle. The offi­cer was treated for minor injuries and Daly was awarded a DUI.  The best part was, in his mugshot pro­vided by police he has on a very spe­cial t-shirt that reads: “I’m not an alco­holic / I’m a drunk / Alco­holics go to meet­ings.”  He was ordered held on $10,000 bail at his arraign­ment and was issued sev­eral traf­fic summonses.
