It’s merely a flesh wound- Clinton Edwards was shot in the arm and leg by a home owner who wrestled him to the ground during a break-in, but Edwards managed to flee the scene before cops arrived. He made it about 25 miles to a second home where a woman awoke to find him rummaging through her dresser — leading him to high-tail it yet again! Her description led to Edwards’ arrest early the next morning.

Don’t Picture this – Michele Grasso had disappeared from his home in Taormina, Italy, in 2010 when police sought to arrest him for drug dealing.  In his absence, he was sentenced to five years in prison and a $31,608 fine for drug dealing by a Sicilian court in 2011.  Grasso must have thought that the po-po was no longer looking for him because he posted a photo on Facebook titled “Christmas in London.” He also posted photos of himself with wax statues at Madame Tussauds, as well as him at the London Eye,TowerBridge and Oxford Circus. Meanwhile, authorities caught up to Grasso and arrested him.  An Italian news source said Grasso was put on a flight back toItaly and is now in prison in Rome.

There’s a time and a place – Authorities in Illinois said a visitor to a juvenile detention center was arrested. Will County sheriff’s deputies said Devante Saxton, emptied his pockets at the security checkpoint at theRiverValleyJuvenileDetentionCenterand “removed five bags of cannabis from his jacket and placed them in a bin to be scanned by the metal detector.” A deputy was called to the center and arrested Saxton on a marijuana possession charge. He was released after posting $100 bond.
