A British man reportedly attacked an ice cream van and threatened its owner with a Samurai sword in front of “screaming” children. 32-year-old Jamie Tickle was drunk and high on cocaine when he climbed into the van and waved the sword as a woman was serving three children. He then hid by a group of bins but was arrested shortly after the attack in Merseyside. Tickle was jailed for two years and eight months at Liverpool Crown Court for affray and possession of a weapon. Judge Stephen Everett said the attack “came out of the blue and we may never get to the bottom of why he did what he did.” He said although no-one was injured, the attack caused “psychological devastation.” The judge also said he was unsure whether Tickle fully understood the seriousness of what he had done.

According to research, washing hands frequently with soap is the most effective way of preventing the spread of infection and deadly disease. To encourage kids to wash their hands more often parents should ask them to wash a toy or two a day, increasing their daily interaction with soap and water.

Ten years ago only about 1 in 3 adults (35%) said it was OK to use a phone while using the toilet. Today that number’s quite a bit higher… about 81%!

In Italy, a 32-year-old man showed up at a police station and asked them to arrest him. He explained that he was wanted by the cops in another town but that he didn’t like the jail there and knew that their jail had much better accommodations. The cops checked out his claims, discovered he was in fact a fugitive, and took him off to their jail.

A woman named Liberty Bell was arrested Thursday after allegedly pummeling the female public defender assigned to represent the 34-year-old Illinois resident. According to police, Bell was meeting with her lawyer in a courthouse cubicle prior to a court appearance when the attack occurred. The victim was left with abrasions and a pair of broken glasses. Bell was arrested earlier this year after locking herself out of a car that she had allegedly stolen. While free on bond in that case, Bell was arrested in late-June for stealing a March of Dimes donation jar. Bell will be charged with a misdemeanor count for the courthouse battery since the victim did not want a felony count filed against her client. (
