South Car­olina woman Jen­nifer Her­ring was speed­ing in her car near Myr­tle Beach when cops tried to get her atten­tion, to no avail. She ended up engag­ing in sev­eral calls to 911 dis­patch­ers dur­ing the course of her run, and informed them that there was no emer­gency, but she would be will­ing to pull over if they handed her $300,000.  Her­ring was caught after she pulled into a dri­ve­way, where she was charged with DUI, felony eva­sion and a num­ber of other counts.  No, she didn’t get the money which would have come in handy for court costs.

Every “lit­ter” bit helps in the craft of a Big Apple-based artist who uses an all-natural and mostly-gross medium to ensure that they’re purr-fect: She packs her paint­ings with cat poop! The avant-garde artist, who goes by the name of Siob­han Meow, shares a small apart­ment with 20 furry friends who are always pitch­ing in on her paint­ings, which sell for upwards of $1500 a pop. She recalls the first cat poop paint­ing, say­ing, “I put a can­vas down where [one of my cats] was going out­side of the lit­ter box, and he took to it, and started poop­ing and pee­ing on dif­fer­ent parts of it. I threw some cat hair that I had swept up off the floor on it, and he pushed that around into dif­fer­ent patterns.”

A Ger­man pool com­plex, The Erd­ing Ther­mal baths near Munich, which fea­tures a bar in a warm water pool, saw a 35-year-old naked Aus­trian man caus­ing a dis­tur­bance in one of the saunas. The com­plex said the man pushed a secu­rity guard into a pool and pulled out a chunk of another man’s hair. Police arrived and the man bit a female offi­cer in the thigh and a male offi­cer in the arm. Police said the man injured a third officer’s shoul­der. Offi­cials at the resort said the inci­dent has resulted in the impo­si­tion of a three-drink limit for guests.
