Police in Britain spotted the plant outside of a Bedford, England, home and the elderly couple told them they had purchased the plant at a flea market, not knowing it was a marijuana plant. Police said the plant was seized and the couple will not face any legal action but Bedford Police posted on the department’s Twitter account, “Seized today. Elderly couple bought shrub at car boot sale, tended carefully — biggest cannabis plant we had seen!!”

A passer-by called cops after spotting Raymond Garcia engaged in a one-sided boxing match with a street corner stop sign, but when officers stepped in to stop the fight, Garcia kept punching – and continued to duke it out even after being tasered and pepper-sprayed. The reaction, or lack of reaction, led a police spokesperson to say, “This person had to be on some sort of drug possibly that was not allowing his system to react normally. “Officers were finally able to subdue Garcia and he was jailed on charged of aggravated assault against a peace officer and resisting arrest.

Edward Archbold was, according to those who met him on Friday night, the life of the party – a bit of a showoff who was up for anything, even a giant cockroach-eating contest. He won. And then, tragically, he died. According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Archbold, of West Palm Beach, and several other contestants signed up to eat a variety of insects at Ben Siegel Reptiles in Deerfield Beach. After eating dozens of giant cockroaches, Archbold was declared the winner of an ivory-ball python. He had also entered a superworm-eating contest earlier in the night.  But after winning, Archbold felt sick and started vomiting. He then collapsed in the store and was later pronounced dead.
