Hopefully this isn't becoming a family tradition...

It’s quite pos­si­ble that because of this inci­dent a New Hamp­shire hunter’s cousin may not be turkey costumecom­ing to Thanks­giv­ing din­ner.  Glenn Ran­fos now has five BBs lodged in his body, includ­ing one in his spleen, after his hunt­ing part­ner of 40 years, cousin Ken­neth Ran­fos, shot him
from 30 yards away!  He said, “I had this eerie feel­ing and I turned around and the gun was point­ing at me and I instantly started bleed­ing from the fore­head. I could feel pen­e­tra­tion on my side and I stood up and said to Kenny ‘you shot me’ and he was in dis­be­lief. He thought he shot a turkey.”  It is being spec­u­lated that Ran­fos’ bald head may have had some­thing to do with the mix-up. The pair might not be able to remain hunt­ing part­ners for much longer as Ran­fos’ cousin could be los­ing his hunt­ing license and he may face crim­i­nal charges. “I feel lucky that Kenny wasn’t a great shot,” Ran­fos said. “He made an hon­est mistake.”

In Florida Police responded to a report of a drunken woman cre­at­ing a dis­tur­bance by yelling at passerby while she walked down the street. When they found Michelle Curry, she smelled of booze and was hav­ing prob­lems stand­ing up straight. Another woman told police that
Curry had yelled at her while she was hold­ing an empty liquor bot­tle and “threw down a pair of under­wear.” Curry was arrested for dis­or­derly intox­i­ca­tion, tres­pass­ing and resist­ing arrest with­out vio­lence. And her underware.

Arling­ton Police Chief Fred­er­ick Ryan report­edly saw 60 year old  Brenda Drinkwa­ter dri­ving the wrong way through town while “another man was dri­ving behind Drinkwa­ter repeat­edly honk­ing his horn and yelling at her to stop,” accord­ing to the Arling­ton Patch.  Ryan also observed Drinkwa­ter forc­ing cars off the road, so he pulled her over. The Chief asked Drinkwa­ter for her license and reg­is­tra­tion, and she reached into her purse and handed him a credit card and a receipt from a liquor store for a bot­tle of vodka.  The Chief then saw an open bot­tle of vodka on her pas­sen­ger seat and could clearly smell the odor of liquor on her breath. “When Drinkwa­ter got out of her car, she was “extremely unsteady” and failed “a num­ber of sobri­ety tests.” In addi­tion to the DUI charge, Drinkwa­ter was also charged with oper­at­ing neg­li­gently as to endan­ger, drink­ing from an open con­tainer while dri­ving and fail­ure to keep to the right.
