A Louisiana man is facing a felony charge after driving a stolen electric-powered shopping cart from Walmart to a bar. 32-year-old Brice Kendall Williams was arrested on charges of unauthorized use of a “moveable,” which is a felony. Williams was intoxicated when he left one bar early Sunday morning in Houma, Louisiana, an hour southwest of New Orleans, and wanted to go to a different bar. He was afraid he would get arrested for a DUI if he drove his car to the next bar. So, he went to a nearby Walmart and took an electric-powered shopping cart. The local sheriff received word of the incident when someone at the bar called their office and told them that Williams had arrived in a shopping cart, which officers found parked between two cars in the bar’s parking lot. Williams bond was set at $2,500. (

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by More than one in three U.S. workers admit to playing hooky from work during the last 12 months. The top reason for giving a fake excuse is attending to personal errands and appointments. In a survey of hiring managers, one guy called in with this excuse for missing work: "I tripped over my dog and was knocked unconscious." A fugitive in China was chased by cops, but he now wishes he’d ran the other direction. The guy ran directly into the arms of some other police while they conducted a large-scale training exercise.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
A Michigan mom of five has been charged with returning library books two years late — potentially facing up to 93 days in jail. Melinda Sanders-Jones said, “I really don’t think going to jail over those two books is okay. I definitely didn’t wanna steal their property.” Sanders-Jones told the station that she had no idea she even had the two overdue books until she tried to use a printer at Charlotte Library and told she was banned from using the services. She fetched the books, “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and “Night,” and returned them to the library, expecting nothing more than some hefty late fee. Instead, the mom’s literary lateness may actually cost her her job. Her boss called to warn her that he found the warrant out for her arrest while doing background checks for impending promotion. She was charged with failure to return rental property, which carries a maximum penalty of 93 days in jail and a $500 fine. She was fingerprinted and appeared in court — and is fighting to get the charge dropped by her next hearing this Thursday. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Georgia man who dressed up for Halloween as the demonic Pennywise was arrested after cops responding to a call about a creepy clown approaching motorists discovered that the costumed reveler was the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant. Police in Conyers, an Atlanta suburb, received a call last Thursday evening about an individual dressed in a clown costume and holding a red balloon, the calling card of Pennywise, who terrifies children in Stephen King’s “It” and the movie adaptations of the horror novel. Around 7:15p.m., an officer contacted 39-year-old Jason Maugham who was standing on a Conyers street corner. The officer's encounter with Maugham was recorded by a police body cam. Maugham, red balloon in hand, denied approaching vehicles that had slowed down at a nearby four-way stop. When the officer ran Maugham’s name through a Georgia Crime Information Center database, an outstanding warrant came back indicating that the laborer was wanted in a neighboring county for failure to pay child support. Maugham was arrested and booked into the Rockdale County jail. (
