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.
