Show Notes for Thursday April 26, 2018


Dear John,

Your letter last week hit pretty close to home. I have also been keeping something from my wife. I didn't cheat like that guy, but I have not been 100% honest with her. When we first met I decided not to tell her about my past. I was a drug addict and had a pretty hard life. I've been clean and sober for over a decade. I moved here and got away from my former life. I just have not told her who I used to be because I'm afraid of what she will think of me. About a month ago a friend from my past reached out to let me know he was going to be in the area and wanted to get together. I avoided him because I was afraid that somehow my secret would be revealed. What should I do? How do I tell my wife now after we've been married for 2 years?

Police charged a Bernardston, Massachusetts man with his sixth drunken driving offense Thursday night after he allegedly drove onto a lawn in Deerfield. The incident began when Greenfield dispatch was contacted regarding a Ford pickup truck that drove onto the lawn and then around the home. The suspect, who was pulled over by city police, told the officer that he didn't have a license and asked if he could give the keys to his wife, who was sitting in the back seat, “so we can all move on from this.” Police determined that 52-year-old David Brown was driving while having a revoked license for habitual traffic offenses and while under the influence of alcohol (sixth offense). Brown was arrested and taken to the Franklin County House of Correction.

A high-speed chase across two Florida counties ended late Tuesday when a Pasco sheriff’s dog tracked down a Land O’Lakes man wanted for assaulting a Hernando sheriff’s deputy as he tried to hide by submerging himself in a swamp. The arrest of 34-year-old Paul Daniel Smith was caught on bodycam footage and shows just his head sticking out of the muddy swamp water. Knox, the sheriff’s dog, led deputies right to Smith. Knox kept licking Smith’s face as he argued with deputies. Smith was arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, fleeing to elude, and violation of probation. He is also wanted on several felony charges in Hernando County.

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
A man named Patrick Hutchison stumbled into a Florida convenience store, asked for two packs of cigarettes, put on a medical mask, and said “Does this look like I’m going to commit an armed robbery?” Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, a patron pumping gas at a Cumberland Farms in Sebastian, Florida, was approached by a “suspicious” looking man. A manager inside the convenience store called 9-1-1 and told a dispatcher that the customer looked “visibly uncomfortable.” Hutchison then stumbled into the convenience store and acted erratically. The manager inside the store also said that he was “not making sense with his statements.” When deputies arrived, Hutchison continued to act in a bizarre manner. Deputies eventually found a clear plastic bag containing pills such as gabapentin, cyclobenzaprine, and oxycodone (a narcotic). He was charged with disorderly conduct and “introduction of certain particles unlawful.”
