An intoxicated book lover in Alaska broke the glass in one of the Noel Wien Library’s front doors to gain access after-hours last Tuesday night. According to library director Melissa Harter, the man “really wanted to read” and didn’t realize the library was closed. Harter said “He wasn’t here very long. He walked in, the cleaning crew said ‘I’m sorry, we’re closed,’ and then he went out the other door. He was inebriated and didn’t know what he was doing.” The cleaning crew called Fairbanks police at 9:45 p.m. but the man was gone when they arrived. There are no suspects at this time. Harter said the window was replaced first thing Wednesday morning. She said, “The borough fix-it department is really good, and of course they sent someone out in the middle of the night to put the plywood on, so that was good too.” The man reportedly did not steal anything and the only damage was to the door.

A virtual battle turned into some real-life drama for a Florida family last week when neighbors contacted police after thinking a gun battle was taking place in their home. The city of Deland said in a release that officers had to respond to a home on Nov. 15th after neighbors called to report a possible disturbance when they heard a man and woman yelling things including “That is my gun, give it to me” and “Please don't kill me.” When officers arrived at the home, however, they found out the couple was instead playing “Call of Duty” in their home. City officials stated, “Thankfully, it was not the situation police thought they were being called to.” The woman inside the home, Jamie McKee, told FOX35 it was the first time she was playing with her husband at their home with the windows open. The game got heated at one point between her, her husband, and their daughter. (

A German teenager’s first joyride was fast and furious — until police pulled him over and took away his license. The 18-year-old driver lost his license after 49 minutes. German police said in a statement, “Some things hold for eternity ... some not even an hour.” Police clocked him at 95 km/h (59 mph) in a 50 km/h (31 mph) zone, in the Märkischer Kreis region of central north Germany. The teen, who had been driving with four friends, was seemingly celebrating his successful driving test. His punishment will be “a hefty fine, a driving ban, an extension of his probationary period, and expensive retraining.” A $227 fine must be paid by the teenager, as well as additional driving lesson costs (
