A suspected drunk driver in California attempted to light his cigarette with flames that erupted from his crashed car. 25-year-old Robert Quigley rear-ended an SUV while traveling as fast as 80 mph near the town of Citrus Heights on Sunday. Quigley's vehicle then burst into flames, and the crash was spotted by a member of the CHP. When that officer turned around to assist, he says he saw Quigley switch places with a female passenger. At some point, CHP says Quigley, who was shirtless, was seen attempting to light his cigarette from the burning wreckage of his own sedan. Police say Quigley eventually admitted he was behind the wheel at the time of the crash. He was then arrested and charged with driving while under the influence.

Alaska's last two Blockbuster video stores are calling it quits, leaving just one store open in the U.S. The stores in Anchorage and Fairbanks will close for rentals after Sunday night and reopen Tuesday for video liquidation sales through the end of August, said Kevin Daymude, general manager of Blockbuster Alaska. "It's going to be crazy," Daymude said of the temporary reopening. He said residents were sad when they heard the news and many people have been reminiscing about their Blockbuster memories. The news was announced to Alaskans on Blockbuster Alaska's Facebook page. The closures come just two months after the host of HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" sent a jockstrap worn by Russell Crowe in the 2005 movie "Cinderella Man" and other items to the Anchorage store, which displayed it in an effort to ramp up business. Daymude says the buzz from the Oliver connection brought more people to the store. "You would not believe how much business we got just from that memorabilia alone," he said. "I can't thank John Oliver or his show enough." But it wasn't enough to counter a planned lease increase at both Alaska locations. The jockstrap will probably go to the franchise owner, Alan Payne, who lives outside Austin, Texas. A request for comment from HBO was not immediately returned. In its heyday, Blockbuster had 15 stores in Alaska, Daymude said. Some stores in more remote, less populated parts of the state began closing in the early 2000s. In recent years, Blockbuster stores have vanished in most of the U.S. But their survival lasted longer in Alaska, with some crediting expensive internet as a factor in keeping many people renting videos rather than streaming. The closures will leave the Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon, as the sole holdout. "How exciting," said the Bend store's general manager Sandi Harding. "It might end up being a little chaotic for a couple of weeks." As for the fate of that store, the future looks good. "We have no plans on closing anytime soon," Harding said.

West Virginia police arrested a Georgia man they said pulled a knife on a missionary group in church after he was asked to silence his cellphone. A criminal complaint shows 26-year-old Bernard B. Edmond of Decatur, Georgia, is charged in Wednesday's incident at Nehemiah Baptist Church in Cool Ridge. Witnesses told police Edmond flipped tables, threw chairs, and chased others with the knife. The complaint says some church members barricaded themselves in a back room and others lured Edmond outside, where officers found him holding the knife and restrained him with a stun gun. Edmond is charged with brandishing, threatening terrorist acts, and assaulting an officer. He's in jail on a $50,000 bond. (https://goo.gl/gEcLJm)

A registered sex offender exposed himself in a Vacaville, California Chili’s on Friday, but police said an alert citizen and restaurant employees aided in his quick arrest. 55-year-old Charles Jenkins from Florida was allegedly exposing himself on purpose to citizens in the area of Chili’s, Bj’s, and Rock and Brews. Police said Jenkins was seated at the bar in Chili’s when a citizen noticed Jenkin’s behavior and confronted him. Jenkins allegedly attempted to flee on foot toward BJ’s and Rock and Brews. Police said the citizen followed Jenkins and stayed on the line with dispatch, providing “valuable updates” as officers responded. Officers said they contacted Jenkins in the restroom and placed him under arrest. Officers also found that Jenkins is currently registered as a sex offender in Oregon and was registered in another state as well. Jenkins was booked into the Solano County Jail on multiple charges of Indecent Exposure. (https://goo.gl/ZhrPru)
