Tuesday 7/31

An Illi­nois woman was arrested for mak­ing a six-pack of 911 calls to com­plain that her boyfriend refused to pro­vide her with a six-pack of beer. Shan­non White dialed the emer­gency num­ber to report that her boyfriend thought she’d had enough to drink, and refused to give her another brewski. When that call didn’t elicit a response from author­i­ties, White tried again … and again … until cops finally did swing by her place – to bust her on charges of dis­or­derly con­duct and false use of 911.

All he did was ask them to pipe down. But when Ralph Carne­gary made his request to a group of rowdy women on a New York sub­way, they allegedly stabbed him in the shoul­der! Carne­gary, a 63-year-old ven­dor, was head­ing to work when he encoun­tered the women, aged 17 to 20. Arrested out­side the 23rd Street station—while hold­ing beers—they screamed that they “didn’t do any­thing,” a wit­ness said. Carne­gary is in sta­ble con­di­tion at Belle­vue hospital.

An Aus­tralian man is recov­er­ing after nearly blow­ing his butt clear off his body by stuff­ing it with fire­works. The 23-year-old, who was not iden­ti­fied, suf­fered severe burns to his but­tocks and gen­i­tals after plac­ing fire­crack­ers between his cheeks and light­ing the fuse. While he was in con­trol enough to take him­self to the hos­pi­tal after the inci­dent, a police spokesman says he believes that alco­hol might have been a fac­tor in the lame deci­sion.  Sergeant Garry Smith also noted, “Appar­ently [the fire­crack­ers] are not designed for that par­tic­u­lar placement.”
