 Sure Shot - El Paso is con­sid­ered one of America’s safest cities, but it was painfully reminded of its prox­im­ity to one of the world’s most dan­ger­ous.  As cops bat­tled car jack­ers inCi­u­dad Juarez, a stray bul­let fired from a few hun­dred feet from the US bor­der crossed over the bor­der and struck a Texas woman in the leg as she shopped in down­town El Paso. The 48-year-old woman was push­ing a child in a stroller at the time. The bul­let, appar­ently caused a clean exit wound, and the vic­tim was treated in hos­pi­tal and released.

You’re the one that I want - A Geor­gia man came up with a unique idea about how to “Grease” his path from the big house to the looney bin by telling cops he com­mit­ted a mur­der on the orders of an angel that looked like Olivia New­ton John!  Pros­e­cu­tors aren’t so sure about the divine guid­ance, say­ing that Hemy Neu­man killed the hus­band of a co-worker because he was obsessed with her and even believed he was the father of her kids. Neu­man also alleges he was com­manded by a demon who sounded like Barry White. Neu­man faces life in prison with­out parole if convicted.

A “clothes” call - A British bur­glar was nabbed by author­i­ties try­ing on women’s cloth­ing in a home he’d just bro­ken into. Jimmy Nash says he was invited into the home by a small Asian boy — but when asked to point out the lad, he pointed to a vase of flow­ers. He also blamed his actions on cocaine and hal­lu­cino­gens. Nash, who was wear­ing only his under­wear when deputies arrived, promised to pay for any dam­age he caused to the home, plus a few extra bucks for good measure.
