A Georgia man charged last month with trying to trade meth to an undercover officer for a gun to use to kill his ex-wife has been indicted in federal court on drug and firearms charges. 56-year-old Charles Henry Skibbe is charged in a three-count U.S. District Court indictment accusing him of distributing a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. Skibbe, of Catoosa County, Georgia, was initially arrested by Dunlap, Tennessee, police after a drug investigation led to a discussion about trading drugs for a weapon. Last month, Dunlap Police Department Chief Clint Huth said Skibbe was suspected of distributing meth in the Dunlap area. During the investigation, Huth said authorities learned Skibbe, a convicted felon, was also trying to buy a handgun. Skibbe allegedly told an uncover officer "he wanted the weapon to murder his ex-wife and her friend.” The undercover officer arranged to meet Skibbe in Dunlap so the suspect could purchase a .40-caliber pistol.

The first black surgeon to do open heart surgery was Dr. Daniel Hale Williams. In 1893, he saved a man who was knifed by opening his chest and sewing together the wound, which was only a fraction of an inch from his heart. He was one of the first to do this. He accomplished this without any modern medical devices, such as x-rays.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
Police report that a week after paying $8 million for a private island in the Florida Keys, a real estate developer was arrested for stealing $300 in merchandise from a department store. 59-year-old Andrew Lippi was busted Saturday on a felony grand theft rap for allegedly swiping coffeemakers, linen, and light bulbs from a Kmart in Key West. According to a Key West Police Department report, Lippi purchased the household goods and then returned the items to Kmart, where employees discovered that the boxes no longer contained the new items.
Lippi was collared Saturday evening at Kmart and charged with grand larceny. He was nabbed shortly after returning a $27.99 bed skirt that he bought earlier in the day. However, police reported, “the bed skirt had been replaced by a pillow case.” Lippi was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center, from which he was freed the following morning without bond. His bust came days after he closed on the $8 million purchase of Thompson Island, a gated island adjacent to Key West. (
