Good deed leads to arrest


 When her cell­mate asks, “How’d you get arrested?” Florida’s Christina Hines, 30, has good rea­son to Christina hineseither laugh or cry. As WKMG reports, it all started when she acci­den­tally left a $50 bill behind at a gas sta­tion. The clerk ran out­side after her but was too late. A sheriff’s deputy noticed the com­mo­tion, found out what hap­pened, and decided to play Good Samar­i­tan by catch­ing up with Hines to return the cash. Think­ing she was being pur­sued for other rea­sons, Hines led deputies on a high-speed chase that ended only with the help of tire-flattening spikes placed on the road. Deputies found heroin and hypo­der­mic nee­dles in Hines’ car, and it didn’t help that she was dri­ving on a sus­pended license. It’s unclear whether she ever got the 50 bucks back

A British bur­glar made it easy for cops to find him after a failed hotel heist — because he had to call them to res­cue him when he fell from the building’s roof and broke his leg!  The bone-headed crook, whose name was not released, plunged nearly 40 feet off the top of a hotel in Glouces­ter [pr: GLOS-ter] while try­ing to swipe cop­per wire and pip­ing to sell for scrap. The mis-step resulted in him frac­tur­ing his leg and pelvis, mak­ing it impos­si­ble for him to make a run for it.A local politi­cian said he was sorry the man had been injured, but pointed out, “He shouldn’t have been on the roof in the first place.”

A Nebraska 3-year-old who escaped from his mother’s Lin­coln apart­ment was dis­cov­ered at a nearby bowl­ing alley, but he wasn’t inter­ested in rolling 10 frames. Kael Ire­land was found inside the “Bear Claw” machine at Madsen’s Bowl­ing & Bil­liards after he some­how wan­dered into the estab­lish­ment and crawled up the game’s prize slot so he could play with the toys inside. A patron informed bar­tender Rachell Hil­dreth about the toddler’s pres­ence and a worker from the com­pany that owns the machine was called to let him out. “He was just hav­ing a hey­day, I don’t think he wanted to get out.”
