According to charges filed late last week, a Missouri man got drunk last Wednesday evening and shot 115 rounds into the trees in his backyard facing a city park. 56-year-old Joseph Manley was charged with three felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon while intoxicated. Overland police said they were called to reports of gunfire last Wednesday evening. Upon arrival, officers heard constant gunfire coming from behind Manley's home and ordered all the residents out. Manley left the house and admitted to police he had been shooting the guns. Police allege Manley fired 115 rounds into the trees behind the home from three guns: An AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, a FNH semi-automatic handgun and a 12-gauge shotgun. Manley was shooting into trees in his backyard which borders Wild Acres Park in Overland. Police say in charging documents that Manley appeared to be drunk and told officers he had been drinking. A breathalyzer test showed his blood alcohol content was .148. Manley was in custody Thursday at the St. Louis County jail. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
An Indiana woman was busted for stealing dentures this week — after she showed up to a probation meeting with the prosthetics “that were clearly not hers,” according to the Jennings County Sheriff’s Office. The meeting with the alleged thief, Joann Childers, came the same day that the dentures’ rightful owner contacted police to report she had stolen them. Deputies spoke with Childers’ probation officer, who told authorities that she believed the woman may have been wearing stolen teeth. Officers visited Childers’ home Wednesday where they confronted her about the alleged theft — and found the chompers had the original owners’ name on them. The dentures were returned to their owner and charges were filed against Childers for theft. (
