"Your personal life, your professional life, and your creative life are all intertwined. I went through a few very difficult years where I felt like a failure. But it was actually really important for me to go through that. Struggle, for me, is the most inspirational thing in the world at the end of the day--as long as you treat it that way." -- Skylar Grey

Authorities say a police officer who worked for the Bonifay Police Department, located in the Florida panhandle, was arrested after allegedly selling opioids out of his marked squad car while in uniform. Officer Dwayne White was arrested while at the Bonifay Police Department by agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The FDLE began its investigation of White last month after the Holmes County Sheriff's Office referred their suspicions to them. Undercover agents made a controlled purchase of opioid tablets from White while he was in uniform in his marked squad car. White also allegedly used his personal cell phone for sales. The officer was charged with selling a controlled substance and unlawful use of a two-way communications device. He is currently being held in the Walton County Jail. (

Authorities say that a Canadian man wanted by police for skinny-dipping in a shark-filled aquarium after assaulting a man hours earlier has been arrested. 37-year-old David Weaver of Nelson, British Columbia, was arrested Tuesday by Ontario Provincial Police in Thunder Bay, four days after he shocked witnesses at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada by stripping down and jumping into its 766,000-gallon Dangerous Lagoon shark tank, which also houses sea turtles, eels and tropical fish. A police spokeswoman said that it was unclear why Weaver tempted fate and jumped into the tank. Police said Weaver was also wanted in connection to an assault outside a Medieval Times restaurant about two hours before his “big splash” in the shark tank, as one witness recalled. The witness said, “He appeared to be totally nude and, like, laughing. I don’t know what would possess someone to do that. It’s totally insane to me. I was scared I was going to witness the death of this guy.” (

A Virginia woman is accused of giving her boyfriend’s 10-year-old son an opiate addiction treatment medication so she could use his urine to pass a drug test. The Roanoke Times reports 29-year-old Katie Sowers Hinkley is charged with distributing a Schedule III drug to a minor. Commonwealth’s Attorney Jason Annis and warrants say Hinkley gave the boy Suboxone this month so she could provide his urine at her drug screening. Annis says Hinkley wanted to renew her Suboxone prescription and so needed urine that showed that drug but no illegal substances. A search warrant says the boy became sick and told police Hinkley had him take a pill and pee into a bottle. It’s unclear if Hinkley has a lawyer. She says the relationship with her boyfriend has since ended. (
