Police in Newnan, Georgia have opened an investigation after a video game collector who bought a stash of retro Nintendo games at a flea market discovered two of the cartridges were filled with packages of drugs. Julian Turner of Newnan posted a video to YouTube showing him examining his day's flea market haul, which included multiple Nintendo Entertainment System games from the 1980s. Turner said his interest was piqued when he noticed one of the cartridges, Rollergames, was the European/Australian PAL release. He said the game, and a copy of Golf, were also found to weigh about 50 percent more than they should have. Turner opened the two cartridges and discovered they contained small packages of what appeared to be narcotics. Detectives believe that the packages appear to have been inside the cartridges for a very long time before they ended up at the market.

46-year-old Jonathan Boettcher of Florida was arrested after he was found in a Publix parking lot kicking trash cans, jumping on cars, and punching cars while screaming “I only had one beer!” According to the arrest report, Boettcher was found swinging his arms and yelling while wearing no shirt and no underwear, but with basketball shorts around his ankles. The deputy said Boettcher was sweating uncontrollably as he yelled “I only had one beer!” and “I only wanted to smoke some pot.” Boettcher explained that he'd drank beer and smoked part of a marijuana joint in the homeless camp behind Publix. As for dropping his pants, he claimed to be responding to a friend who was mooning him. A judge sentenced him to 45 days in county jail.

Experts (Columbia University) say bathing every day could increase people's risk of infections. Showering excessively can reduce skin hydration, causing it to become dry and cracked, which allows germs to enter. Most people bathe in the belief it will reduce their risk of illness, however, it actually does little more than remove body odor. Washing strips the skin of its natural oils, which can disrupt 'good' bacteria that supports people's immune systems. Bathing just once or twice a week is usually sufficient for most.

The major credit card networks — including American Express, Visa, Discover and Mastercard — will no longer require signatures on transactions in the U.S. beginning this month. Retailers can still require signatures if they so choose, though some have 
already stopped the practice of asking shoppers to sign for their items when a purchase is under a certain amount.Here are answers to questions you might have about the change and what it means for you. You may still need to sign for purchases on occasion, and in fact, it’s up to retailers whether they want to continue requiring signatures on transactions. Big retailers like Target and Walmart have said that they plan to stop requiring signatures — and in some cases have already done so. Smaller retailers may take longer to adopt the change; as well, some payment systems require signatures to complete a transaction and will have to be reconfigured. And you might have to sign for meals at most restaurants, with the exception of a few large restaurant chains, such as Applebee’s, Red Robin, Chili’s and Olive Garden, which are using pay-at-table technology.https://www.wbir.com/mobile
They called 911 to report a tiger in New York City, but that wasn’t quite right A New Yorker’s daily exposure to the animal kingdom consists of mainly pigeons and rats, so perhaps a mistake like Thursday’s can be forgiven. It was just before 8 a.m. when police said several callers to 911 reported spotting a tiger in the street near West 162 Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in the Washington Heights neighborhood. The NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit was called but the animal that police safely caught turned out to be a large raccoon. Animal Care Centers of New York City took custody of the raccoon from the NYPD and put it down. The law requires it. The raccoon was brought into our facility and was euthanized as required by law for all vector species animals brought into the shelter,” ACC said in a statement. “Raccoons, bats and skunks are classified as a rabies vector species, which means it's an animal that can carry and transmit rabies.”https://abcnews.go.com/amp/US/called-911-report-tiger-york-city-wasnt/story?id=54422500&__twitter_impression=true

75-year-old Joseph Kurimay of Central Minnesota is accused of damaging more than 100 vehicles by spreading nails on the road outside of his house to punish speeding drivers. According to the criminal complaint, the investigation began when a woman reported to police that a nail punctured her tire. When she brought her car to a repair shop, employees said they had seen many tires damaged by nails recently. Police spoke to the shop employees, who said they had repaired dozens of flat tires with the exact same nail, 1.5 inch steel cap mason nails, in the past few months. An officer went to a home improvement store to track purchases of that specific nail. Surveillance video and purchase records showed an older male purchasing the nails four times. Police tracked one of the purchases to a credit card in Kurimay’s name. Kurimay reported speeding vehicles outside his home to police earlier in the year. He decided to punish speeding drivers by putting these nails down on the road. If convicted, Kurimay could face five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

A wild car crash in Westland, Michigan involving at least five vehicles ended with a man getting out of his car, taking off his clothes, and dancing. Police said a pickup truck came barreling down Wayne Road and plowed into vehicles. After the crash, the driver got out of the pickup truck and got naked. Officials elaborated, stating that the man stripped all his clothes off and started dancing in the street. One witness said that when police arrived the man was shouting, “I’m fine, I’m fine!” He eventually tried to run away but the cops nabbed him, put him in handcuffs, and took him away. The driver is still in custody as police try to determine why he was acting so erratically.
