An Arkansas cop has been suspended after he was caught on camera dancing completely naked in a club. Officer Cebron Hackett sparked screams and laughter as he was filmed staggering around the dancefloor after stripping off into his birthday suit at a Little Rock nightclub last month. The Conway cop was shown tumbling into a table and wrestling with a security guard, finally crashing to the dancefloor after busting several moves to Journey’s soft-rock classic “Don’t Stop Believin’.” He was finally booted from the club — and later drove himself home, according to a letter from his police chief who suspended him without pay for thirty days. “Your actions have brought discredit and embarrassment upon the Conway Police Department and could have resulted in your arrest for Public Intoxication,” Chief Jody Spradlin told him in a formal letter of suspension. He was off-duty and appeared “highly intoxicated” during his naked escapades at Discovery Nightclub on Oct. 13th. Alarmingly, someone drove him back near the Conway Police Department, where his personal car was parked — and he drove himself home. Spradlin wrote in the letter that not enough time had passed for Hackett to “safely and legally drive a motor vehicle.”(

A British Airways passenger yelling, “I want to get out!” had to be restrained by other fliers when he tried to open an exit door mid-flight. The unidentified man was apparently experiencing a panic attack Monday on a flight to Saudia Arabia from London’s Heathrow Airport when he attempted to exit the plane. “I want to get out!” he reportedly screamed while trying to open a door. Several passengers and flight attendants rushed to intervene, wrestling the man away from the exit. The unruly passenger continued to cause a commotion — pointing and shouting — but ultimately calmed down and was brought back to his seat. British Airways confirmed there was a disruption aboard the flight. “Our cabin crew cared for a customer who suffered from a panic attack during the flight,” the airline said in a statement. “We are sorry for any concern this caused our customers.” A flight attendant, who wasn’t identified, said the incident was reported to authorities.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A 71-year-old man has been arrested in Tokyo for making 24,000 complaint calls to his phone operator. Akitoshi Okamoto is accused of making thousands of calls to KDDI's free number in just eight days, accusing them of violating his contract. The company told local media he had been calling repeatedly for a total period of two-and-a-half years. Mr. Okamoto denies harassing the firm, and told the police he was the victim in the situation. Japanese media reports that Mr. Okamoto accused KDDI of violating his contract because his phone was unable to pick up radio broadcasts. Tokyo's Metropolitan Police said that when Mr. Okamoto called the company, he would either insult its customer service staff or demand that a representative visit him to apologize. A Spokesman added that sometimes he would call the company's customer service line only to immediately hang up. KDDI said it initially hadn't wanted to press charges, but his calls became so frequent and relentless that it was unable to deal with other customers. (
