A Florida charter captain has been arrested after authorities say he got drunk and high and threatened to shoot passengers. Sarasota police say 36-year-old boat captain Mark Bailey got into a fight with the teenage son of one of the five passengers over the weekend. Several other passengers became involved and authorities say the argument escalated. According to a police report, passengers said they heard Bailey fire several shots from the upper deck into the water and saw him drinking and doing drugs. For hours, passengers said the captain refused to dock even after they paid him. They eventually called the Coast Guard. Passengers told the Herald-Tribune they felt like hostages and, at one point, discussed a plan to overtake Bailey but felt it was too risky because he had a gun. Bailey was charged with boating under the influence and resisting arrest. (

Whether or not you dream in black and white depends on whether you watched black-and-white television. If your dreams look more vintage than HD, there’s a high chance you grew up watching black-and-white television. According to one 2008 study published in the journal Conscious Cognition, most people born after the year 1983 said they almost never dream in black and white, whereas people born in the year 1953 and earlier said they dream in black and white about a quarter of the time. Overall, 12 percent of people dream entirely in black and white, leading the researchers to suggest that “true greyscale dreams occur only in people with black and white media experience.”

According to an arrest affidavit, a woman pulled a gun on a man inside of a Mexican restaurant in Southeast Austin during an argument over who would be up next for karaoke just before 1:00 a.m. last Sunday. The woman, identified by police as 41-year-old Doris Vallejo-Godoy, was with her girlfriend in the bar at La Catedral del Marisco when the confrontation began over the karaoke machine in the restaurant. Vallejo-Godoy told police she pulled out her pistol to calm the man down after he called her bad names, but never pointed it at the man. But the man told officers that after the argument began, Vallejo-Godoy struck him in the face, pulled the gun out, and pointed it directly at him. She was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. Police also said she lacked a concealed handgun license and was charged with unlawful carrying of a concealed weapon, a third-degree felony. (
