Mass­a­chu­setts store owner Saa­dat Khan was con­fronted by a gun-wielding crook he pre­tended to co-operate, mov­ing behind the counter and toward the cash reg­is­ter. But instead of open­ing the reg­is­ter to get the dough the man demanded, he grabbed a cup of spicy red pep­per pow­der that he keeps on hand to kick his meals up a notch. Stunned, the uniden­ti­fied sus­pect fled and is still at large.  Look for the dude with the red face and puffy eyes.

Texas man Joseph Rose was hang­ing out in his front yard when he was approached by a buck, which seemed friendly. He approached the deer, think­ing they could become friends, but the buck had other ideas, charg­ing at him and forc­ing him into the bed of his pickup truck.  The ani­mal added insult to injury by steal­ing and eat­ing a pack of smokes that Rose dropped dur­ing the chase. A game war­den arrived soon after­ward and sub­dued the animal.

Deputies in Wash­ing­ton State who answered a call about gun­fire say they were greeted at the door by a 41-year-old man, who told them he had fired a weapon in self-defense after some­one tried to run him over out­side his home. Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Greg Elwin says inves­ti­ga­tors asked to look around and found a floor-to-ceiling brass pole com­plete with exotic dancer. In another room they dis­cov­ered  two 5-foot long alli­ga­tors crawl­ing around.  Turns out they were pro­tec­tion for his huge mar­i­juana grow area.”  They arrested the 41-year-old man for inves­ti­ga­tion of
attempted mur­der and called County Ani­mal Con­trol offi­cials to take care of the gators.
