Let's get physical...at the truck stop

Police say 56-year-old Joann Eliz­a­beth Wingate posted signs at a nearby truck wash offer­ing phys­i­cals for dri­vers who needed an updated joann wingateexam to main­tain their com­mer­cial license. On at least two occa­sions, she picked up a dri­ver and drove him back to her house where she per­formed the exam. The prob­lem is she was fraud­u­lently pos­ing as Dr. Bar­bara Wingate. One dri­ver said she did every­thing a real doc­tor would do and even took a urine sam­ple. Police believe there may be as many as 16 dri­vers who received phys­i­cal exams from Wingate. She’s been charged with forgery, fraud and iden­tity theft, as well as drug charges because nar­cotics were found in her home.


A Kansas City man whose name was not released, broke into a cos­tume store around 8:30pm before walk­ing a short dis­tance to a bar and grab­bing a seat before order­ing some wings. The irony here is that he was dressed as a giant bird. Sev­eral wit­nesses wit­nessed the break-in and called cops to alert them to his where­abouts – and they quickly showed up to grill him. One of those wit­nesses said, “We came in and there was a guy sit­ting at the bar, and he was in a really weird bird feather cos­tume, and we didn’t think too much of it. He was really quiet. And the next thing we know, five cops show up and they go to arrest him, they hand­cuff him, he fights them a lit­tle bit, and they just drag him out and take him away.“
Carla McFar­land says that she pulled out of the drive-thru at her local Sonic and began dive into her meal when she saw the packet in her bag of fries – an extra dose of happy that came in the form of a bag of weed. She imme­di­ately stopped her kids from eat­ing their meals before check­ing to see if they also had the bonus pack­ets – which they didn’t. Accord­ing to a man­ager, an employee admit­ted the mar­i­juana was hers and said that it must have fallen from her apron – an offense that got her fired on the spot. McFar­land got free replace­ment meals for her and her kids sans pot.
