She told officers that she had taken Xanax then later admitted to drinking alcohol after four empty sangria bottles were found in her center console. When they arrived at the jail, officers attempted to perform field sobriety tests on Minter but she kept talking over them and began singing “Amazing Grace.” She also reportedly threw her socks at a camera recording the tests and exposed herself to the officers.

In theory, analyzing your walking style could replace fingerprints or retinal scans for security screening.

That’s why we thought it was a bit of ceiling.”  IMAGE

FAKE NEWS OR FLORIDA:
Is this story "Fake News" or something that actually happened in Florida.

A Florida woman said she read on the internet that she could leave her 
children home alone. So, she decided to leave her two young children 
in the house while dropping another child off at school and then going 
out to get a haircut. According to a report from the Okaloosa County 
Sheriff’s Office, a neighbor found the woman’s dogs running loose in 
the neighborhood, captured them, and took them home. When she 
knocked on the door, a child answered and let the dogs inside. The 
neighbor asked the child if his mother was home, and he said she 
was not. The neighbor called 9-1-1 to report the child was home 
unsupervised. A deputy reported to the house and when the mother 
returned he asked her why she left the kids home alone. The woman 
said she read on the internet that Florida doesn’t have a law limiting 
the age a child can be left alone. The woman was then charged with 
two counts of felony child neglect. (https://goo.gl/RxgyfX)
