Police in Nashville have busted a 14-year-old boy they believe caused a crime wave in the north of the city single-handedly. The teen—described by police as an “innovative individual”—is believed to have been behind more than 100 robberies over the last two years in which he kicked in back doors and stole TVs, video games, and whatever else he could grab before making his getaway in a go-kart, the New York Daily News reports. The teen was arrested after he was spotted prowling through a back alley and has been charged in juvenile court with aggravated burglary, burglary, theft, possession of burglary tools, and loitering during school hours.
A sheriff’s deputy in South Carolina ended up running on empty after a boozy ride ended with him losing control of both his car and his bladder. Nicholas Wagner wasn’t seriously injured but did take out 10 feet of guard rail in the wreck, which he tried to explain by saying he’d just had a bad night. When deputies began to question Wagner, one of them noticed a strong smell of alcohol and a wet spot on the front of his pants, which he admitted was the result of him soiling himself at some point in the evening. Wagner’s gun was confiscated, and he was put on administrative leave.
Bringing weed or dope-smoking paraphernalia to a large gathering is generally a bad idea, seeing as you often find cops there. Of course, if that large gathering is being held at the VermontPoliceAcademy, those odds increase tenfold, moving the idea to the “downright stupid” category! Unfortunately for Michelle Bachand, of Lyndonville, Vt., common sense seemed to evade her last Friday when the 26-year-old dispatcher allegedly showed up to an employee training session at the Vermont Police Academy carrying marijuana. Not surprisingly, she was escorted from the session and out of her position with law enforcement, according to police.
