car hitting coneA Cleveland-area woman, whose name was not released, got red-flagged for hit­ting a cone dur­ing the maneu­ver­ing part of her dri­ving test, which sent her into a fit of rage. She report­edly began shout­ing that the instruc­tor should’ve warned her what she was doing wrong, and demanded to know where she could go to give it another shot. When she didn’t get any sat­is­fac­tion, she gunned the engine and aimed at the instruc­tor who had got­ten out of the vehi­cle, but failed to con­nect – prov­ing a sec­ond time that she’s not qual­i­fied to be behind the wheel.

An Aus­tralian teenager who wanted to “run away from his life” sim­ply left home with basic camp­ing equip­ment and food sup­plies, leav­ing his cell phone behind. He sur­vived nearly 9 weeks in the bush near Syd­ney before being dis­cov­ered by hik­ers, Perth Now reports. Matthew Allen, 18, was highly dis­ori­ented, partly blinded, cov­ered in leeches, and suf­fer­ing from gan­grene when first respon­ders winched him to an ambu­lance. Amaz­ingly, Matthew was just 220 yards away from homes that were blocked from his view. How he sur­vived dur­ing record 113-degree heat is unclear, but he drank from a muddy creek as he lost nearly 90 pounds—about half his body weight. He is being treated in a hos­pi­tal for exposure-related injuries.

Police in South Car­olina said they arrested a woman accused of chok­ing a man when he attempted to pull more blan­ket on top of him­self.  Myr­tle Beach police said they were called to a home on alle­ga­tions Tina Berry­hill Rucker, 42, had choked a 49-year-old man while they were in bed together and all he wanted to do was stay warm!  He pulled on the blan­ket and now has signs of being choked and was bleed­ing on his neck from fin­ger­nail marks!  Police said Rucker was intox­i­cated and unco­op­er­a­tive. Rucker was arrested and charged with domes­tic violence
