According to police, a cut in line for free samples at a Costco In Greenville, South Carolina turned into a fight — between two men in their 70s. A 70-year-old man said he was waiting in line for a complimentary piece of cheese at the Costco when a 72-year-old man “cut in line, took some cheese, and walked off.” After the 70-year-old moved on to a line with free samples of cheeseburgers, police said the man saw the 72-year-old approaching. The 70-year-old was still upset about being cut in front of and he told the other man that “he could get in front of him because he knew he would just cut the line anyway.” The 72-year-old then hit the 70-year-old in the right side of his head and caused his hat and glasses to get knocked off. The 72-year-old had left the Costco by the time police officers arrived, they tracked him down. (

Police said a man leaving an Arizona hospital tried to beat the heat by stealing an ambulance to avoid walking. The Mesa Police Department said 37-year-old Todd Shell had just been released from the Banner Desert Hospital around 11:30 a.m. for a “heat related situation.” “When officers interviewed Shell after his arrest, he said when he came out of the hospital he thought it was too hot to walk home,” police said. “He walked back towards the hospital when he found the ambulance running in the bay while the crew was dropping off another patient. Shell decided to take the ambulance at that point so he wouldn't have to walk.” Shell was booked into jail on one count of unlawful use of means of transportation and one count of unlawful flight from law enforcement.
