Always eat your greens – Officer Andrey Zacharov took a kickback of about $500 from a motorist who wanted his suspended license returned, but he was confronted almost immediately by a supervisor who got wind of what he was cooking up — so he tried to dispose of the dough by eating it.  Not only did Zacharov have his wages garnished — he was hit with a $19,000 fine and kicked off the force. Probably had a massive tummy ache too!

A not so happy meal – 21-year-old Whitley Teslow took the time to make himself 2 burgers, a batch of fries and grab a soda at a McDonalds…after hours. Then he left through the drive through window. It was caught on surveillance tape and the restaurant manager sent the footage to a local television station, which aired it that night — prompting Teslow to turn himself in.

Redneck roundup – Police inFlorida arrested Mark Thomas Wach, 43, ofPalm City,FL.  Investigators said Wach’s 18-year-old son told deputies he confronted his father about 45 minutes before deputies arrived because the older man was intoxicated and shooting his pistol at the son’s lawn mower. The son said he took the handgun from his dad, who then left but came back a short time later with a shotgun! The two men fought until a passing deputy noticed the altercation and Wach allegedly refused to comply with the deputy’s demands that he stop fighting and he was shocked three times with a stun gun before being taken into custody. Deputies said Wach did not understand why he was being arrested. He stated “that he shoots in the yard all the time and that fighting is what redneck people do.”
