A burglar in England downed 24 bottles of beer and a bottle of J├Ągermeister before he tried to escape from police on a bicycle. Jy Kennedy, who had also taken cocaine, was chased by police for a mile as he made a number of U-turns to shake them off. The 24-year-old eventually crashed into a police car and fell off, ending the chase in Weoley Castle, Birmingham. The chase began after two officers heard a burglar alarm go off in Bournville Lane and spotted Kennedy cycling along clutching a flat screen TV. Mark Phillips, prosecuting at Birmingham Crown Court, said: “It was quite clear the defendant was drunk.” And added, “He tried to run but did not get very far and was arrested.” When police searched his home, they found a number of items he had taken from the same address earlier laid out on his bed including a jewelry box, a camcorder, and a watch. When quizzed, Kennedy said he had been recently released from prison and was “bored.” (

Culaccino (KOO-la-CHEE-no)
-The stain left on a table from a cold glass of water.
-A mark left on a surface by the bottom of a wet glass or vessel. the dregs in a glass, or the remaining part of a substance in a vessel. the end of a salami, loaf of bread etc.

From culaccio + -ino, derived from culo (“bottom”, literally “butt”).

Used in a sentence:
“The most irritating thing about having a soiree is the cleaning up after; and the most irritating part of that is the finding of a culaccino on our George II walnut side table.”


Considering the crimes of creepy Jared Fogle, perhaps a felon should think twice about wearing a Subway t-shirt when posing for his latest sex offender registry photo. 29-year-old Daniel Audie Wayne Smith, a Birmingham, Alabama resident did just that, as he actually wore a green T-shirt with the Subway logo while take his registry photo. Smith is on the state’s sex offender list due to his 2009 conviction on attempted sexual abuse charges. The victim was a seven-year-old boy. Smith, who was released from prison in 2013, is currently unemployed, according to the state registry. Fogle was Subway’s spokesperson until his 2015 arrest for possessing child pornography and paying a teenage girl for sex. Sentenced to 15 years and eight months, Fogle is imprisoned at the federal lockup in Englewood, Colorado. (

A North Carolina teenager is accused of holding his boss at gunpoint and demanding he be paid in cash. The Fayetteville Observer reports 18-year-old Joshua Caleb Hunt is charged with kidnapping and discharging a firearm to cause fear. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office says Hunt’s boss, Robert Lockamy, told authorities Hunt called out of work Friday and hadn’t picked up his paycheck. Lockamy says Hunt entered the business Monday and began yelling. Lockamy says he told Hunt he didn’t have cash, but the check was already written. Authorities say Hunt then walked Lockamy at gunpoint to where the check was kept and took it. It’s unclear if Hunt has a lawyer. (
