A Virginia man who was twice spotted walking through a park wearing high heels and stockings--but no pants--has been arrested on indecent exposure charges. Cops say that 37-year-old Jeffrey Battaglia was seen without pants on two separate occasions at Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton, a city about 40 miles from Charlottesville. A male witness reported seeing a man with his genitals exposed wearing a black hat, black dinner jacket, and high heels. A week later, a female witness also got a look at the private parts of the suspect, who was wearing a black jacket, high heels, and stockings. Police subsequently identified Battaglia, who lives about seven miles from Staunton, as the pants-less stroller. Battaglia was charged with two counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure. (

91-year-old Johnnie Douglas of Richmond, England was arrested Monday after he opened fire at another McDonald's customer in front of him at the drive-thru because the guy wasn’t moving fast enough. Police say that Douglas engaged in a verbal dispute with 39-year-old Phillip T. Bailey outside of the fast food restaurant around 3:45 a.m. Richmond Police Department Captain Kevin Wampler said Douglas became infuriated that the service was too slow and vehicles in front of him were not moving forward. That's when he began arguing with Bailey, an off-duty McDonalds employee, and fired a shot toward him. Bailey then defended himself by throwing a smoothie at the elderly man. No injuries were reported from the incident. The department's news release states Douglas was jailed and charged with criminal recklessness as well as pointing a loaded firearm at another individual. Bailey was also jailed and charged with misdemeanor intimidation and disorderly conduct.
