Michi­gan teenager Den­zel Wash­ing­ton said he spot­ted what he believed to be a UFO hov­er­ing over a movie the­ater dur­ing the week­end. The 19-year-old Flint res­i­dent said his close encounter was no act and he and his brother were as close as 200 feet from the mys­te­ri­ous black craft they saw. The UFO was described as about five car-lengths long with a bluish-white exhaust com­ing from it. The broth­ers’ atten­tion had been attracted by bright lights
they thought might be com­ing from a sta­dium; how­ever they got a good look at some­thing def­i­nitely unfa­mil­iar that moved silently away as they got closer and then dis­ap­peared in the blink of an eye. The Jour­nal said police con­firmed get­ting an excited 911 call from Wash­ing­ton but no other author­i­ties had any records of air­craft in the area at the time.

A British bur­glar set his smart-phone to the “stu­pid” set­ting  – by using it as a flash­light dur­ing a rob­bery and for­get­ting that he had the video cam­era turned on the whole time, cap­tur­ing his crime spree in its entirety. Emmanuel Jerome was busted at another attempted break-in, and when cops cuffed him and took inven­tory of his pos­ses­sions, they found the phone, with footage of a lucra­tive heist from ear­lier in the month. Despite the videos, Jerome’s lawyer said his client was inno­cent, although he offered no expla­na­tion as to how the clips of the crime scene got on the phone.

A judge’s offer to allow an Ohio drug defen­dant the chance to stay out of prison if he’d give up mar­i­juana might have just gone up in smoke. Hamil­ton County Com­mon Pleas Judge Melba Marsh says she was aston­ished by the response from 19-year-old Damaine Mitchell. The Cincin­nati Enquirer reported Mitchell told the judge he likes smok­ing weed and stay­ing off it so he could stay out of prison would be “a chal­lenge.” He told the judge he could try to quit but made a request: Could he “at least get one more joint in?” Not sur­pris­ingly the judge said no. She wants Mitchell back in court next week before she decides what to do with his traf­fick­ing case.
