A Minnesota woman triggered panic when she tried to stage a home invasion robbery – while armed with a squirt gun! Renee Lynn Memije was charged with assault and burglary after she entered a residence packing some serious heat – in the form of a toy gun filled with a solution made of water spiked with jalapeno and cayenne pepper. When the homeowners interrupted her entry, Renee sprayed them both in the face, but the man was able to wrestle her to the ground and hold her until police arrived. She faces up to 20 years in prison, and has a number of conditions on her parole, including not being allowed to drink alcohol or enter places where it is served.

teaching a lesson on cowboys at Schrade Middle School in Rowlett when he asked for student volunteers to run around while he attempted to lasso them. Moore said a 13-year-old student ended up with bruises on his neck when the lasso landed on him incorrectly. The Rowlett Police Department is investigating the incident for possible criminal charges.

That’s what happened to Boston’s Lawrence Ligocki, who received a Valentine’s Day package containing a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a teddy bear stuffed with $10,000 worth of crystal meth. When officials arrived at Lawrence’s house, he said he was expecting the package, but quickly changed his tune when they issued a warrant to search his house for drugs. Investigators found an additional jar of meth, and Lawrence was charged with drug possession and trafficking.
