An Oregon man who was caught on video harassing a bison in Yellowstone National Park was arrested in Glacier National Park in the third disturbance in less than a week at a national park. Rangers looking for Raymond Reinke of Pendleton, Oregon, found him causing a disturbance at the historic Many Glacier Hotel in the popular Montana park, the National Park Service said. Reinke, 55, had been cited for drunken and disorderly conduct in a third national park, Grand Teton, last Saturday and was released on $500 bond that required him to follow the law and avoid alcohol.

Police say an Arkansas man accused of trying to steal a commercial jet told investigators he thought piloting the plane would involve little more than pushing buttons and pulling levers. Investigators say 18-year-old Zemarcuis Devon Scott wanted to fly to an out-of-state concert when he hopped inside an American Eagle jet at Texarkana Regional Airport. The Texarkana Gazette reports Scott was inside the cockpit when he was arrested early in July. He was recently charged and remained jailed Thursday on commercial burglary and attempted theft of property charges. Envoy Air operates the plane. The company says the 44-seat jet wasn’t damaged. An affidavit says police found Scott after responding to reports of a man jumping an airport fence. (https://goo.gl/C56rPP)

MOMENT OF DUH:By LearnWithoutLoans.com (Find Funding For College)
Two Tennessee teenagers were arrested after attempting to carjack two vehicles in the Green Hills area. The suspects, ages 15 and 17, first tried to steal the car of a woman parked in the Hill Center parking garage. Metro police reported they ran up to her vehicle, one on each side, opened the doors and yelled for her to get out. They then tried to pull her out of the car, but she screamed and held down her car horn, causing them to run off. An hour later, the teens approached a woman walking to her car in the Kroger parking lot. They grabbed her keys out of her hand, jumped in her vehicle, but ran away after they were unable to drive a manual transmission, according to Metro police. A short time later, officers spotted the teens in the area and took them into custody. They were each charged in juvenile court with attempted robbery/carjacking, theft, and attempted theft of a vehicle. (https://goo.gl/PX8Vs6)
