sleeping judgeA Russ­ian judge has been fired after he caught 40 winks in court and then sen­tenced an out­raged defen­dant to five years in prison.Judge Yevgeny Makhno was forced to resign Fri­day for obvi­ously falling asleep sev­eral times while try­ing a busi­ness­man on charges of fraud. Makhno claimed that he was not sleep­ing, but lis­ten­ing with his eyes closed, the reports said. The defen­dant, will be given a new trial.

A Seat­tle man was taken into cus­tody after he went a lit­tle too far in going with the flow – by uri­nat­ing all over the inside of a police car despite hav­ing an adult dia­per on. The man, whose name was not released, had already got­ten his feet – and some other stuff – wet when he peed on a bed and the floor when he was taken to a hos­pi­tal after being found passed out drunk. Then he spat on one staffer.

The Man­a­tee County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy responded to a report of a “female in the street kick­ing peo­ple in gen­i­tals and run­ning around.” Katina Collins, who matched the descrip­tion of the sus­pect, walked away from the approach­ing deputy and allegedly spun around when he fol­lowed her and punched him in the face, knock­ing off his sun­glasses. The deputy was able to wres­tle Collins to the ground and she allegedly tried to scratch his face while he put the hand­cuffs on her. Collins was arrested on a charge of bat­tery on an offi­cer and taken to the Man­a­tee County jail in lieu of $1,500 bond. Police did not give a motive for Collins’ alleged groin attacks.
