"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." --Michael Jordan

According to Investigators, a Texas woman is facing an assault charge after allegedly biting off and swallowing a large chunk of the nose of a female victim. 41-year-old Jessica Collins was arrested Thursday for the bloody attack in Spring, a Houston suburb. Collins was staying with a female neighbor of the 28-year-old victim. After spending Wednesday evening at a local bar, the three women returned to the victim’s home, where Collins--seeking to keep the party going--asked her host for booze and cigarettes. Instead, the victim asked Collins to leave her residence, a request that allegedly prompted Collins to attack the woman. After yanking the victim to the floor by her hair, Collins allegedly bit off a large piece from the bridge of the woman’s nose. (

In England, a Devon & Cornwall Police officer expressed his shock after seeing pictures of a car which had a bucket for a seat and required the motorist to use a pair of pliers to steer it. Norfolk and Suffolk's Road and Policing Firearms Operation Unit tweeted out a picture of the badly damaged car, which was also missing a bumper and headlights and had a flat tire. The force posted an image of the car in the early hours of Friday morning, and wrote: “Yes, this was driven on a road and yes, he was sitting on a bucket and steering with a pair of mole grips.” PC Jon Parker from Norfolk Police retweeted the post with the comment: “I think this is the most unroadworthy car I've ever seen. Ridiculous that it was driven on a public road in this condition.” (

Arizona authorities say a 44-year-old uniformed security guard is accused of impersonating a police officer by trying to pull over an unmarked car that happened to contain two state troopers patrolling a Phoenix freeway. The Department of Public Safety says Matthew Allen Disbro of Mesa was driving his personal black Dodge Charger on Wednesday when he activated law-enforcement-style emergency lights on his car to pull over the troopers' yellow Ford Mustang. According to the department, the troopers wouldn't pull over. Disbro then drove alongside, yelled, and waved a hand at the troopers to get them to pull over before they activated their own vehicle's police lights and pulled him over. (
