They call him speedo - Some cops in Florida won’t have a leg to stand on when try­ing to explain the escape of a cocaine dealer who man­aged to briefly elude them even on only 1 leg!  Appar­ently, he opened the door of his car and hopped down the side­walk at a high rate of speed. Deputies stayed behind and searched his car and found a large bag of mar­i­juana.  The offi­cers ulti­mately cap­tured Ariosto Ryman and when taken into the sta­tion for pro­cess­ing, they also found approx­i­mately five ounces of the white pow­der in his bungholio.

Jesus or George? - A Nebraska woman is sell­ing a Chicken McNugget she says bears a resem­blance to Pres­i­dent George Wash­ing­ton. Rebekah Speights of Dakota City said she received the item from a Sioux City McDonald’s three years ago and had kept it frozen until Sun­day, when a ser­mon at the Fam­ily Wor­ship Cen­ter inspired her to sell the item on eBay to ben­e­fit the church. The Wash­ing­ton McNugget was listed on eBay Mon­day and soon received its first bid of $100. The McNugget had a high bid of $321 yes­ter­day.  Jesus on French toast brought in a whop­ping $894

Gam­bled and lost - A Penn­syl­va­nia man wanted on drug charges had his luck run out after he won $2,500 play­ing black­jack at a casino near Philadel­phia. 34-year-old Mateen John­son had to pro­duce ID to cash out his win­nings — and that’s when he went bust. Casino offi­cials swiped the card and dis­cov­ered there was a war­rant out for his arrest.  John­son report­edly told police he knew he was going to be arrested soon and was try­ing to win enough to make bail.
