Its one thing to wake up and feel like you’re dead but to actually read in the newspaper that you ARE dead is a totally different situation! James Maze began receiving condolences over the weekend from friends after they read about his death in the newspaper. According to Maze, in addition to the fact that he isn’t dead, the newspaper also inaccurately reported his age and the names of relatives. But the paper did get his past history correct. The paper apparently got Maze confused with a man of the same name who passed away. The former County Commissioner is hoping the mistake won’t hurt his run for sheriff. “It’s going to take me awhile to get everybody to understand I’m not dead.”
A Canadian man whose name was not released, initially dialed 911 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, and asked for “a pop and some smokes” – an order that the dispatcher declined, telling him that 911 was for life-and-death matters only. That message didn’t sink in, since he rang up a second time to request “another mickey of vodka.” After the second call, officers showed up at his house for an in-person reminder of the true meaning of emergency – and were met with another request for snacks. Since the man appeared extremely intoxicated and had a loaded weapon on hand, he was taken in for his own safety.
Alabama Police arrested Anthony Adams for public drunkenness after he was caught in the women’s bathroom at Walmart around 10 p.m. reeking of alcohol (and other things I can only imagine). Adams was so out of it that he told officers he knew the sheriff “here” in Ringgold, Ga., even though he was in Chattooga County, AL. A breath test revealed Adams had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.197 and was having difficulty standing up. He doesn’t think that he even went into the bathroom, although he’s not sure. “If I even went in the women’s bathroom it’s because I was in the wrong bathroom.” After spending the night in jail Adams was out the next day and headed back to the Walmart with a friend. But instead of heading to the women’s restroom he opted to sit in the car and drink a six-pack of Natural Ice.
