Mosquitos bum rush morning show


mosquitoLouise Minchin, a co-presenter on the “BBC Break­fast” show, was sup­posed to put her arm through some net­ting cov­er­ing a hole in a box of mos­qui­toes to find out which one of the morning-show crew they pre­ferred to munch on. Instead, she tore the net­ting, send­ing mos­qui­toes pour­ing into the stu­dio and sent the show’s pro­duc­ers into pest-control mode.  She sat there laugh­ing while her co-host swat­ted the mos­qui­toes in mock hor­ror. 

This wasn’t the sort of help Christo­pher A. Pilarski was look­ing for. The man stayed late at the Good­e­now Grove Nature Pre­serve. He returned to his car only to find the gate locked, so he called the police. They found out that he had been dri­ving his car on the trails, which is not allowed. That’s when he agreed to let offi­cers search his car. Not the best idea. Not long after, cops say they found 19.6 grams of cocaine in his blue Dodge Durango.  He was arrested for drug possession.

A motorist fell asleep at the wheel for almost 200 MILES. Police in New Zealand received a 999 call in the mid­dle of the night from a woman who was wor­ried her friend had dri­ven after tak­ing sleep­ing med­ica­tion. She was found after dri­ving for five hours and 190 miles from her home! Police tracked her using her mobile phone and saw that she was send­ing text mes­sages through­out the drive. The woman had no mem­ory of the drive. Senior sergeant Dave Lit­ton said: “We have sought an urgent order for­bid­ding her to drive and to seek med­ical advice on her suit­abil­ity to remain hold­ing her driver’s license.”
