Police in North Car­olina said an armed man wear­ing the mask and gloves from a Spider-Man cos­tume robbed a Chi­nese restaurant.Salisbury police said the man was wear­ing the cos­tume pieces when he walked into the China Buf­fet restau­rant, bran­dished a black hand­gun and demanded money from cashier Mae West. The man fled with an undis­closed amount of cash and police said the cos­tumed vil­lain was wear­ing a gray hooded sweat­shirt and dark pants with his mask and gloves.
A Cana­dian foot­ball team has been heat­ing things up a lit­tle too much for their town’s fire depart­ment – which was dis­patched to put out a fire that turned out to be a Yule Log video shown on the sta­dium score­board. The Saskatchewan Roughrid­ers used the video to warm the hearts of fans, but some folks out­side the venue appar­ently got hot under the col­lar and called 911 to report that the build­ing was burn­ing. After nego­ti­at­ing with team own­er­ship, fire offi­cials have man­aged to get them to snuff out the Yule log and agree to replace it with some­thing else – “snowflakes or Santa or some­thing like that.”

A North Car­olina man couldn’t get a note from his mom, so he tried to get one from an Ari­zona police depart­ment – in an effort to tell a local drug car­tel that he’d lost $20,000 of their cash and wanted to apol­o­gize.  DeMarco Thomas, who was work­ing as a courier for the deal­ers, mis­placed the cash and was con­cerned that the loss could put his life in dan­ger, so he thought he could get the cops to give him a receipt say­ing they’d seized the dough. Instead, the offi­cers arrested him and seized the cash he had on him.They asked him to sign papers turn­ing over that cash and admit­ting guilt, but he declined – and is still fac­ing charges.
