An Arizona man arrested for riding a Bird scooter while intoxicated is now wanted by police. Shelton Begay recently failed to show for two separate arraignments in Tempe Municipal Court, prompting a judge to issue arrest warrants for the 28-year-old defendant. The first warrant was filed in mid-January and the second was issued February 1st. According to cops, Begay was busted last year for DUI, reckless driving, criminal damage, and other crimes. His blood alcohol content was measured at .285, more than three times the legal limit. As detailed in a Tempe Police Department report, Begay--piloting a motorized Bird scooter--crashed into the side of a parked Dodge Dart around 9:00 a.m. The vehicle’s owner told police that Begay appeared drunk and was swerving across the roadway. Begay apparently later fell off the scooter, which is capable of speeds up to 35 mph and is classified by police as a motor vehicle. He was arrested after failing a series of field sobriety tests. A search of Begay’s backpack turned up a 16-ounce can of beer and seven small bottles of 99 Bananas liqueur. (

The Size of Your Social Circle Is Related to Your Brain’s Size
A scientist at Oxford discovered that the size of a person’s “orbitomedial prefrontal cortex” (the part of a brain that that identifies other people’s moods and personalities) can predict the size of that person’s social circle. The average prefrontal cortex averages out to around 147.8 friends in a social network.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A woman who couldn’t get a beef patty at a favorite New York eatery used a baseball bat in protest. On Saturday, police released surveillance video of the woman in action in the Bronx — smashing a restaurant’s windows after learning the eatery had run out of her favorite food. Police say the woman at the Back-Home restaurant in the Morrisania neighborhood came in on the afternoon of January 15th and ordered a patty. She was told they’d run out, and she got upset. Authorities say she left and came back to the Jamaican restaurant with the bat. The video shows a woman bashing in two windows. She fled and police were still searching for her on Saturday. The video shows a woman dressed in a black and white jacket and matching sneakers, swinging a multi-colored aluminum bat as bystanders tried to stop her before she walked away. No one was injured during the incident. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Authorities say a Florida man was arrested for misuse of 9-1-1 and calling the emergency line at least 200 times because he “wanted someone to talk to.” According to a police report, an officer responded to a 9-1-1 hang-up complaint on January 30th at around 1:00 a.m. When authorities arrived at the scene, they met with 38-year-old Michael Reston, who told officials he had accidentally dialed 9-1-1 and did not have an emergency. Reston also told officers his phone had run out of minutes and he just wanted someone to talk to. When authorities searched further into Reston's history, they learned he reportedly called 9-1-1 approximately 200 times in two months. Reston was arrested and received a first-degree misdemeanor charge for misuse of 9-1-1. (
