A Connecticut school bus driver was busted for allegedly using his vehicle to deliver and pick up bags of heroin after dropping children off at the end of school days. Stratford Police arrested 29-year-old Garfield Howell following a months-long investigation in which surveillance footage reportedly showed him using the bus for drug transactions. Howell worked for We Transport, a charter bus company that transports students in the Bridgeport Public Schools district, and all the transactions were made after he dropped off his passengers. When police arrested Howell at his home in Stratford, they seized around 195 grams of heroin. Howell has been charged with sale of narcotics, conspiracy to sell narcotics, and risk of injury to a minor.

Police say that an Alabama man named Gary Bradley, who goes by “Tripp,” took money from a church's collection plate and deposited the funds into an account he controlled. Witnesses told police that Bradley went before Mayfair Church of Christ and announced he had been stealing from the offering plate. Church officials say Bradley has helped with collection during services. He's accused of taking thousands of dollars from the church and its members. Huntsville police spokesman Lieutenant Michael Johnson says the bank questioned the suspicious nature of the deposits into Bradley's account since the checks were made out to the church.

A man accused of streaking during an Ohio middle school girl’s lacrosse game and assaulting a trainer blamed “bad mushrooms” for his behavior while in court.

67-year-old Timothy Hill of the United Kingdom (UK) was sentenced to eight months in prison after he admitted to using a laser jamming device to avoid detection by speed cameras. Hill was caught by police after he flipped off mobile speed camera vans on three separate occasions. Traffic Constable Andrew Forth said that Hill made himself an easy target by “repeatedly gesturing at police camera vans with your middle finger while you’re driving a distinctive car.” Police were able to detect the laser jammer on his White Range Rover, which had personalized license plates making him easy to track down. Police said when they spoke with him he denied driving the car, claiming he was working 60 miles away. They also said that Hill tried to destroy the jamming device. Hill eventually relented and admitted to speeding and flipping off the cameras. He also said that he threw the jamming device in the river in an attempt to destroy it. He pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice and received his eight-month prison sentence. (https://goo.gl/neZoFe)

30-year-old Kenneth Milesky of Parsipanny, New Jersey was arrested after drunkenly driving his car to a Foodtown, parking and partially obstructing a handicapped spot, and then passing out near the deli with partially consumed chicken breast laying on his chest. The Parsippany police were originally notified that a visibly intoxicated male had parked his car and stumbled into the Foodtown. Officers located Mr. Milesky near the deli area laying on the ground, with a partially consumed chicken breast laying on his chest. After they woke him up and spoke to him, they detected the odor of alcohol on his breath. Mr. Milesky was placed under arrest and transported to Saint Clare’s Hospital by Rockaway Neck First Aid Squad due to his level of intoxication. He was subsequently charged with Driving While Intoxicated, Reckless Driving, and Obstructing a Handicap Space. Foodtown staff were advised on how to file charges for the unpaid chicken breast if they wished to. (https://goo.gl/pazsgq)

According to an international survey, road rage has become a growing worldwide problem. The worst locations are Austria, France, the US, Russia and Belgium, where around two-thirds of drivers say they have been victims of road rage in the past year.

Authorities charged a U.S. Postal Service employee with detaining and delaying mail. The complaint said the employee stashed 17,000 pieces of mail because he was “overwhelmed” by how much he had to deliver. 10,000 pieces were stuffed inside his Nissan Pathfinder. He also had about 6,000 pieces of mail in his apartment and 1,000 in his work locker.

'Saved By The Bell' themed restaurant in the worksIf you're looking for a way to express your love for Saved By The Bell, look no further than Chicago. A bar and diner based on the popular TV series is scheduled to open there for one month starting June 1.
Saved By The Max is a self-described parody pop-up shop that has attracted a lot of attention from fans of Bayside High. The organizers, who prefer to remain anonymous until the shop opens, told MeTV they've been inspired to do this for a while.

"After attending a few Saved By The Bell themed events last year, I personally left unsatisfied and thought maybe I know what people are looking for," said one organizer.

Just what are these fans looking for? According to the shop's Facebook page, the space will be custom detailed to replicate the kids' favorite hangout, "The Max." The menu will include items such as "AC Sliders," "Macaroni & Screech," and "Belding Fries." In addition to food and drinks named after characters on the show, "Saved By The Max" will host daily costume contests, karaoke and trivia contests, and 1980s and 1990s dance parties.

"The reaction from fans has been insane, beyond what we could have even thought," said the organizer. Currently, over 16,000 people on Facebook have expressed interest in going to the shop.

"[It's] making us even more excited and stepping up what we can do to make sure everyone leaves happy."
For now, the organizers will only say the shop will be located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. They plan to announce its location via their Facebook page about a week before it opens on June 1.

A police report states that upon returning home from work Tuesday, a Louisiana resident discovered a woman “naked in her bathtub and eating her Cheetos.” According to an arrest affidavit, the victim found the stranger inside her Monroe home around 5:00 p.m. When she confronted the intruder, the naked burglar claimed that an unknown male told her to break into the victim’s house. Cops responding to a 9-1-1 call identified the naked woman as Evelyn Washington, a 29-year-old Monroe resident whose home is a little more than a mile away from the victim’s house. An officer noted that she observed the bathtub “to be full of water” and noticed a plate of food along with half-eaten Cheetos belonging to the victim on the toilet next to the tub. Washington was arrested for burglary and criminal damage to property.

A former South Texas juvenile justice department employee has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for felony theft after authorities say he acknowledged stealing $1.2 million worth of fajitas over nine years. Cameron County District Attorney Luis Saenz said that Gilberto Escaramilla was fired in August and arrested after authorities obtained a search warrant and found packages of the Tex-Mex food in his refrigerator. Investigators subsequently checked vendor invoices and determined he would intercept county-funded food deliveries and deliver them to his own customers. The scheme imploded when he missed work one day in August for a medical appointment and a delivery driver showed up with 800 pounds of fajitas, but officials said the juvenile department didn't serve fajitas.
