Doing the leg work — A Min­nesota woman was kick­ing up her heels after she felt a mighty tug on her fish­ing line — until she reeled in.  Beth Krohn was at her vaca­tion home when she made the catch, and ini­tially thought she’d found part of a dead body. When she found the leg was arti­fi­cial, she started doing some detec­tive work and found the orig­i­nal owner — a woman who’d lost the limb while swim­ming in the same lake three years ago.  Krohn called Pam Riley to tell her of the find and returned the prosthetic.

 Let it all­lll hang out - Vero Beach police said a cou­ple and their teenage daugh­ters flagged down an offi­cer and reported a man expos­ing him­self in the shower area of the Humis­ton­Park beach. The offi­cer arrived to find Robert John­son, 57, stand­ing nude in view of about 15 to 20 peo­ple with his twig and berries “plainly vis­i­ble. When asked for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion he said, “You can’t take me to jail for this, I’m just out here help­ing peo­ple,” John­son was arrested and charged with inde­cent expo­sure and resist­ing an offi­cer with­out vio­lence. It was not clear what sort of help John­son was offer­ing his fel­low beachgoers.

Atten­tion women! A who-who is not a hid­ing spot.  For any­thing. — A woman checked into the ER with pelvic pain. Doc­tors removed a set of car keys from down yon­der way. She didn’t want her boyfriend tak­ing the car so she hid them in a place where “he never goes.”  Obvi­ously this is NOT a healthy rela­tion­ship but what hap­pened to hid­ing stuff under the bed??
