A Florida man who tussled with a cop trying to arrest him for disorderly conduct later said that he “really enjoyed resisting” because it was like being on “Live PD,” a cable program that chronicles the mayhem police officers encounter on the night shift. A patrolman was dispatched to a home in Sebastian, a city near Vero Beach, after a 9-1-1 caller reported that a man wielding a golf club was chasing a woman. When an officer arrived on the scene, he encountered 53-year-old Rudolph Grant, who smelled of booze and was screaming and cursing in front of the residence. After trying to walk away, Grant struggled as the cop sought to handcuff him. Grant tried to pull away from him and due to his erratic behavior had to be placed in “mechanical restraints that were double-locked.” Before being placed into a squad car, Grant told the arresting officer that he “really enjoyed resisting. It was like being on Live PD.” Grant was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. (https://goo.gl/wwZCxy)

A British survey found that the average office workers spends 1,700 hours a year in front of a computer screen.

Durex has recalled five batches of its condoms over concerns that they could burst towards the end of their shelf life.

Apparently, it needs to be said: Don’t wash or reuse condoms. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued the warning in a tweet, and reminded sexually active individuals to use a new condom for each sex act. The advice was issued as the number of sexually transmitted diseases is on the rise.

The latest numbers (from Nielsen) show that on average American adults spend 11.1 hours every day consuming media, up 19 minutes over the previous quarter. The breakdown is interesting, and more low-tech than you might expect: 92 percent of adults listen to radio in an average week, 88 percent watch television, 79 percent mess around on a smartphone, 60 percent on a computer and 15 percent on a game console.

According to arresting officers, an Austin man was arrested after unsuccessfully attempting to rob a Whataburger with a pair of tongs. After reviewing surveillance video, authorities say 44-year-old David Garcia-Gonzalez, who had difficulty maintaining balance while walking, approached the Texas Whataburger. After loitering in the business for a while, he reportedly grabbed a pair of metal tongs and walked up to an employee who had opened the register. The suspect approached her from behind and started jabbing her with the tongs while repeatedly demanding money. Garcia-Gonzalez was eventually confronted by another employee, who ordered him to leave the restaurant. The suspect fled the scene but was later detained by officers at a car wash just east of the Whataburger. Garcia-Gonzalez now faces charges for robbery by threat, a second-degree felony.

MOMENT OF DUH:By LearnWithoutLoans.com (Find Funding For College)
Prosecutors say a Missouri man has been sentenced to eleven years in federal prison for robbing a credit union with a plastic gun. The U.S. attorney’s office said Monday in a news release that 57-year-old Stephen McCrary had pleaded guilty in February to one count of bank robbery. He admitted he stole $3,815 from the Community America Credit Union in Kansas City, Missouri. Court documents say McCrary approached the teller on Sept. 7, 2016, and pulled out what appeared to be a firearm. He pointed it at the teller and demanded “all of the money in the drawer.” (https://goo.gl/hRf868)
Is this story "Fake News" or something that actually happened in Florida.

A low-speed chase landed a Florida man in jail on Sunday. Clay
County Sheriff’s deputies say 22-year-old Nicolas Powell stole a forklift from Sunbelt Rentals shortly after midnight. Someone called deputies around 12:45 a.m. to report a man, who “didn’t look like a construction worker,” driving a forklift. The caller also referred to his driving as “erratic.” Deputies witnessed this first hand when they spotted him swerving across lanes of traffic. Authorities began a lukewarm pursuit, but their sirens and lights weren’t enough to convince the suspect to pull over. He led them on a chase that eventually came to an end when he pulled into a grass lot at a gas station. Powell refused to take a field sobriety test at the scene. He had also been driving with a license that had been suspended for more than three years. Powell is in the Clay County Jail with bonds totaling $29,010. (https://goo.gl/8CDYca
