It’s quite possible that because of this incident a New Hampshire hunter’s cousin may not be coming 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.
