A Pasco County, Florida man who danced through his field sobriety tests after being found sleeping in his running truck is facing a DUI charge. Deputies driving on Grand Boulevard in Holiday say they spotted a running truck with its brake lights on in front of a closed business. When they went to check on it, they say they found 33-year-old Christopher Larson asleep in the driver's seat with his foot on the brake. According to an arrest report, when Larson woke up her forgot to put the truck in park when he unlocked the door and started to get out. Deputies say the truck started rolling forward and one of them had to jump in and hit the brakes so it wouldn't hit a gate. Once Larson was out of the truck, deputies asked him to perform field sobriety tests. Body camera footage shows Larson lose his balance and start dancing during the “walk and turn” test. A breath sample showed Larson had a .28 BAC at the time, deputies say - more than three times the legal limit. He was arrested for driving under the influence and taken to the Pasco County Jail. (

A Chicken Can Live With Its Head (Mostly) Chopped Off.
For 18 months in the early 1940s, Mike the Headless Chicken lived with most of his head cut off. As it happens, his owner, farmer Frank Lloyd, was looking to cook some chicken the night of his half-decapitation. Lloyd ended up missing the jugular vein and brain stem, allowing the bird to survive. The death-defying chicken is still the pride and joy of his hometown, Fruita, Colorado, where they hold an annual festival in his honor.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
While most people hate going to the Department of Revenue, one man repeatedly visited the workers at a local office—and crossed the line. Employees with the Driver’s License and Vehicle Registration Office in Troy, Missouri, said Timothy Howe repeatedly stopped by the office. He frequently asked for duplicate titles, forms, and other vehicle registration items. Over the course of several months, the requests evolved into acts. He anonymously bought them pizzas and used a fake name to contact them on social media. They reportedly saw his car in the parking lot at all times of the day. One victim said she asked Howe to stop buying her pizzas. So, he bought them for everyone in the office, except for her. Another time, Howe plopped down a wad of cash on the counter and said, “Go get yourself a manicure or pedicure,” and walked out. The Compliance Investigation Bureau told Howe he couldn’t go to the Troy office anymore, but his unwanted contact continued. He was charged with stalking and harassment and is now in the Lincoln County Jail on a $20,000 cash-only bond.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

According to Orange County sheriff’s records, an elderly man allegedly pointed a handgun at a Lake Mary couple during a dispute over a parking space for the disabled at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The Sheriff’s Office has forwarded the case to the state attorney’s office to decide whether to file charges. The man, whose name was not released, wasn’t arrested because there were conflicting stories about what happened. The 62-year-old woman and her 60-year-old husband, both Disney annual pass holders, were visiting the theme park Sunday when the altercation happened. The woman, who was driving, waited for a car to back out so she could take the spot in the parking lot. The woman told deputies that a man driving a gray SUV from the opposite direction sped up and tried to cut them off to get the space. The driver, described as in his 70s with a full, gray beard, almost crashed into them. Her husband raised his right fist at the SUV driver who responded by allegedly lifting a semi-automatic handgun above the steering wheel and pointing it at them. The SUV driver’s passenger, however, disputes their account. (
