Police say that 18-year-old Anthony Damante of Milan, Ohio delivered a bag of marijuana to the wrong car in a store parking lot and is now facing drug trafficking charges. A woman reportedly went into a store to buy lottery tickets, returned to her car, and found a strange smelling sandwich bag marked “Sour Kush” on the front seat, prompting a call to police. A police report says officers used surveillance camera footage to determine that another woman in the lot gave Damante money and went inside the store while Damante put the 40 grams (1.4 ounces) of pot into the wrong woman’s unlocked car.(

Running late for work or just miss that bus? You could have a good excuse: Your electric clock might be running a bit cuckoo.
Because of a change in federal energy regulations, some scientists say your trusty, older plug-in clock may be losing or gaining a few ticks over time. Electric clocks keep time based on the usually stable and precise pulses of the electric current that powers them. In the U.S., that's 60 hertz (cycles per second). In the past, regulators required power companies to immediately correct the rate if it slipped off the mark. But that precision is expensive to maintain, so last year, the correction part was quietly eliminated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Chattanooga's airport says an internal miscommunication forced a plane to turn around Thursday night.
A woman posted on the airport's Facebook page that her flight from Atlanta was on schedule Thursday night. She says it had to turn around because no lights on the Chattanooga runway were on. According to a statement from the airport, there was a miscommunication with the FAA that caused the lights to be turned off too early. The plane was able to land later in the evening. You can read the airport's entire statement below:
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) oversees and manages the runway lighting system at the airport. Last night there was an internal miscommunications within that agency, which resulted in the lights being turned off too early. However, we have had a discussion with agency’s management, and we are satisfied this will not happen again. We regret any inconvenience for our passengers, and although delayed, we are glad they were able to land in Chattanooga later in the evening.”

A former Indiana man who was considered dead after abandoning his family nearly 25 years ago and fleeing to Florida has been ordered to pay his ex-wife nearly $2 million in back child support. Police arrested Richard J. Hoagland in Florida on a fraudulent personal identification charge in 2016. He’d started a new family using a dead man’s name after leaving his family in December 1993. Hoagland had been presumed dead since 2003. Authorities believe he stole Terry Symanski’s identity by using the man’s death certificate to obtain documentation including a birth certificate and driver’s license. Symanski died in 1991. A relative discovered the identity fraud while doing research on his family history. A magistrate in central Indiana’s Hamilton County on Wednesday awarded Hoagland’s ex-wife, Linda K. Iseler, with child support for their two children dating back to the early 1990s, The Journal Gazette reported . The case was handled in Hamilton County because the couple had married there, said Iseler’s attorney, Tom Markle. The judgment includes nearly $1.4 million in interest on payments he should’ve been making, court records show. Hoagland’s assets were considered in the case, court officials said. “Also considered is the fact it was clear Richard (Hoagland) was not living in poverty, but had obtained a comfortable lifestyle, had remarried and had children, obtained a pilot’s license and owned at least one airplane that was acquired for personal use,” court documents said. The court is still deciding whether Hoagland should pay Iseler for attorney’s fees. A hearing in the case is scheduled for next month.

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
Lee Graves rarely gets fast food, but Thursday morning he was running late so he decided to stop and grab a Coke with his breakfast. That stop would lead to hours in the hospital and a promise he won’t be stopping at a McDonald’s again. Thursday morning, Graves pulled through the McDonald's drive-thru at 3552 Blanding Blvd., Jacksonville, and orders a large Coke with some food. However, after paying he was handed a small Coke at the window. Graves says he whispered to a cashier that he ordered a large. The worker returned roughly 30 seconds later and handed him the drink he asked for, however once he put the drink in his cup-holder and circled the building he knew something wasn’t right.
As I was about to go out to Blanding, the Coke started foaming out of control, like it erupted like a volcano.” Graves then took a few quick sips thinking it would stop the drink from foaming and going all over the inside of his truck. The Jacksonville resident said he held the Coke out the window and it continued to foam.
When I took the lid off ... there is a blob of blue slime right in the top of the Coke sitting there,” he said. Graves asked the manager if they had anything in the store that could’ve turned the drink blue. They told him no.
Graves then said he was about to dump the drink out, but noticed a change. “At this point, the Coke is almost clear and as I dump it out on the ground, something about the size of a golf-ball fell out of the bottom of the cup, looks like a white rock. At that point, I almost instantly knew that something was going on.”
Graves said the first gulp that he took tasted like chlorine, but he didn’t want to believe it. He got filings at the dentist the day before and thought maybe his taste buds were off.
Graves said he felt ok for about an hour then felt like he was going to vomit or have to use the bathroom, so he decided to go to the hospital. Graves said he was there for about six hours and staff wanted to keep him, but he decided he’d be more comfortable at home and return if things got worse.
He was sent home with prescription for nausea.
Graves told First Coast News he is not a regular customer at the Blanding Boulevard McDonald's, has never seen the employee before who he thinks slipped something in his drink, and has no reason to believe he did anything wrong.
Had I had words with the girl, been rude, I could’ve understood to some degree, but all I did was literally whisper to her that, ‘hey this should’ve been a large’.”
Graves filed an incident report with McDonald’s and Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
He says he hopes justice is served and hopes there are repercussions for the store and/or the employee he believes put something in his drink. Graves said there is lesson for everyone out there to take from his painful experience.
Stay safe, keep your eyes open, if something tastes funny, don’t drink it, if you’re coke just all of a sudden starts foaming for no reason, take it back, take it to the police to get investigated, there’s definitely something wrong.”
McDonald’s did respond to First Coast News questions about this alleged incident saying,

Serving my customers safe, high quality food and beverages is a top priority for me. We take this claim very seriously and are investigating the matter,” said Edgard Gerena, McDonald’s Owner/Operator.
