Dear John,

I rent a 3 bedroom home for me and my two boys. The neighborhood is not great. My older son has had his bike stolen a few times and our home is pretty rough, but at least it's been affordable. Recently my landlord got caught with some violations and made a not-so-great attempt to fix a few things, but in the process they increased my rent. My lease is month-to-month at this point. I'm trying to decide if it makes sense to start looking elsewhere or just stay here. My kids have some friends in the area and it's still pretty affordable... but now with the increase I could probably find a better place for the same amount. What do you think? Should I stay or should I go?

A Tennessee man was arrested last Tuesday for allegedly riding a horse while drunk. Hamilton County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested John Arnold after receiving several reports on Tuesday night of an “intoxicated person on a horse.” A deputy allegedly saw Arnold riding the horse down the middle of a dark road and then falling off the horse. Arnold was arrested and charged with public intoxication. The horse was not hurt and was returned home safely. Arnold appeared in court last Wednesday and was ordered to serve three days in jail for putting himself, the horse, and drivers in danger. Arnold had a criminal history dating back to 1986 in Hamilton County for charges which included public intoxication and driving under the influence. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A Florida Man awaiting sentencing for attempted murder doused a prosecutor with urine during an attack in a Fort Lauderdale courtroom. 28-year-old Albert Narvaez was inside Judge Susan Alspector’s courtroom when he charged at Assistant State Attorney Andrew Newman and “threw urine fluid” at the lawyer. An investigator reported that, “The urine went inside Newman’s mouth and outer clothing.” Newman was the lead prosecutor in the attempted murder case for which Narvaez was convicted and scheduled to be sentenced. Narvaez, who worked at a Hallandale Beach sports bar, was convicted of firing several shots at his girlfriend as she ran from his vehicle following an argument in June 2017. The woman was not struck by the five or six bullets fired by Narvaez. Narvaez has been in custody at the Broward County jail in connection with the attempted murder case. It is unclear if he transported the bodily fluid into Alspector’s courtroom, or whether he urinated into some kind of a container while there. He was charged with misdemeanor battery. (

A Pensacola man was arrested Tuesday after deputies say he pointed a gun at a woman who hadn’t finished his laundry. In June, 31-year-old Cordarial Smith went to retrieve his laundry from a woman in Pensacola who agreed to wash it. When Smith realized the woman didn’t have his laundry finished, he became agitated. The woman told Smith not to disrespect to her, to which he replied, “(Expletive), I will kill you with your ugly (expletive),” and pointed a gun at her face. Smith was served a warrant on Tuesday and charged with aggravated battery and possession of a firearm by a felon. He remains in the Escambia County jail with a bond set at $300,000 bond. (
