A driving teacher was arrested in Germantown, Wisconsin for driving drunk while teaching a student. Before that, he hit the Germantown High School principal. It was all caught on surveillance video. The video shows the instructor, Corey Malone, backing up into a gate that then hits the Germantown High School principal. According to police, when they tested Malone his blood-alcohol level was three times over the legal limit. In the backseat of the car while all this is happening was a student that Malone had picked up for his driving lesson. Malone later told police he didn't remember having that student in his car. According to the police report, the owner of the driving school told police “she smelled what she thought was alcohol” on Malone before he went to Germantown High School. She says he told her “he quit drinking at midnight.” Malone later told police “it was probably closer to 2:00 a.m.” He was taken into custody for first offense OWI. (https://bit.ly/35R5l2s)

Kids ask 300 questions a day. A 2013 U.K. study from online retailer Littlewoods.com observed young children and recorded the questions they asked the adults around them. The children tended to turn to their mothers for answers, and these moms could end up answering an average of nearly 300 questions per day, or one question every two-and-a-half minutes, the study found. The moms reported that the hardest questions they were asked included "Why is water wet?" and "What are shadows made of?"

A 37-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after deputies say she tried to build an explosive device inside a Walmart while she had a child with her. Emily Stallard faces charges of attempted arson of a structure, fire bombing, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child abuse, and battery on a law enforcement officer. The incident took place just before 6:00 p.m. at the Walmart. A security guard noticed Stallard roaming the aisles of the store and opening unpaid items such as “flammable materials, projectiles and matches.” The guard called the Sheriff’s Office and also notified an off-duty Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer who was inside the store at the time. The guard and the off-duty officer approached the woman and detained her until deputies arrived. Deputies said that the woman had a child with her at the time of the incident. Stallard, of Tampa, was being held in the Hillsborough County jail on Tuesday in lieu of $8,500 bail. (https://bit.ly/2srr6Z4)


MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by SingleStudentLoan.com

A Chicago pastor is accused of stealing nearly $1 million from a food program for needy children — using some of the cash to buy himself a flashy new Bentley. Rev. Clarence Smith Jr., who led New Life Impact Church, was indicted on fraud charges for bilking more than $900,000 given to the ministry for a federally funded food program through the Illinois State Board of Education. Prosecutors allege that 45-year-old pastor didn’t follow through with feeding the hungry — and instead deposited the checks into his own bank account. Smith then used the money to buy himself a brand new, $142,000 Bentley Flying Spur luxury sedan and on other expenses. He was released on his own recognizance after pleading not guilty to the four fraud-related counts in federal court. North Lawndale resident Ravin Cosey said the pastor’s various luxury goods raised alarm bells prior to the feds’ investigation. “He was coming around in Jordans and Bentleys and new cars, and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, pastors don’t do that,'” Cosey told news station WLS-TV.

A man sent some illegal holiday cheer to a woman in jail and he ended up getting arrested himself. News outlets report 40-year-old Timothy Lee Snow sent the woman a Christmas card filled with drugs. County sheriff’s officials said that Bibb County Jail inmate Mary Beth Odum had told Snow over the phone how to put meth and other drugs into a card to send to her in jail. Deputies intercepted a contraband-filled card filled with methamphetamine and Suboxone and began investigating Snow. On January 9th, deputies followed Snow as he left his residence and found him with meth, Xanax, and a revolver. When they searched his home, deputies found more meth, Suboxone, marijuana, steroids, packing materials, a shotgun, and a rifle. Snow was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and giving an inmate drugs. Odum, who was already in jail, now faces additional charges including attempt to commit offenses pertaining to the possession of drugs. (https://bit.ly/36TtWF7)

Bees sometimes sting other bees. Bees are notorious for their stings, but humans aren't the only ones who experience this pain in the neck (or the arm, or the leg…). In protecting their hives from outsiders, some "guard bees" will stay by the entrance and sniff the bees that come in, says Marianne Peso from the biology department of Macquarie University. If there's a rogue bee from another hive trying to steal some nectar, the guard bee will bite and even sting the intruder.

A Chinese air traveler attempted to smuggle 200 live scorpions out of Sri Lanka in his checked bags. The man was arrested at a departure gate at Bandaranaike International Airport as he was trying to board his SriLankan Airlines flight to Guangzhou, China. The 30-year-old was detained and fined about $550. During questioning, the man admitted to illegally transporting animals from different countries to his home country for breeding and selling purposes. He said he traveled to various parts of Sri Lanka in search of scorpions, guided by information received from drivers of “tuk tuks,” or three-wheeled taxis. The man was eventually allowed to return home and his scorpions, which were neatly packed in plastic containers, were taken from him. Sunil Jayaratne, a spokesman for Sri Lanka’s customs department, told Geo TV the value of the scorpions hasn’t been determined and noted wildlife trafficking has become a “lucrative trade.” Officials indicated he might have been planning to extract venom from the arachnids once he returned to China.

A man locked in a court battle with his former wife has requested trial by combat with Japanese swords to solve the dispute. 40-year-old David Ostrom from Paola, Kansas said he would give his ex-wife, 38-year-old Bridgette Ostrom, the choice of an attorney or a “stand-in fighter” to battle him. He argued in court documents that dueling had never been “explicitly banned or restricted” in the United States. He pointed out to the Iowa District Court in Shelby County that the method had been used “as recently as 1818 in British Court.” Ostrom told the Des Moines Register that his inspiration came from a 2016 case in which New York Supreme Court Justice Philip Minardo admitted that duels had not been abolished. He asked Iowa District Court to give him twelve weeks “lead time” to allow him to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords. His former wife's attorney, Matthew Hudson, argued that a duel could end in one or both parties dying, which would be disproportionate to custody and property tax issues. He asked the court to order Ostrom undergo psychological treatment. (https://dailym.ai/2Tqadcm)

The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland. While Scotland proudly boasts the Loch Ness Monster, one of the world's most famous fabled creatures, the country opted to make another mythical beast its national animal: the unicorn. Although this might seem like an odd choice, Visit Scotland explains that unicorns played an integral role in the country's history.

A Colorado man was arrested and booked in jail after putting women’s underwear on vehicles at Park Meadows mall last Friday. 47-year-old Bonifacio Gallegos was arrested by Lone Tree Police Department officers after they were alerted of the man, who was reportedly following a guest in the parking lot of the shopping center and placing women’s underwear on vehicles. He was arrested and charged with harassment and was later booked into the Douglas County Jail. Additionally, officials said that while this case is under investigation, there is no indication it is related to human trafficking, as social media posts circulating around the community suggest. Officials called on patrons who’ve had encounters with the suspect, who was driving a gray, 2015 Ford Explorer at the time of the incident, to contact their local law enforcement agency immediately.

A man from upstate New York has been arrested for trafficking rare wild cats from Africa and selling them on the website ExoticCubs.com. 38-year-old Christopher Casacci allegedly imported and sold dozens of caracals, a wild cat native to Africa, and servals, known for their spotted coats. The federal government said that Casacci obtained the cats by “falsely declaring the animals as domesticated breeds” on shipping records from February to June of 2018. Caracals, also known as the “desert lynx,” can grow to approximately forty pounds. Both species are protected under the Endangered Species Act and cannot legally be sold in New York. Casacci, who is from a small town outside Buffalo, is charged with violating the Lacey Act and the US Animal Welfare Act. He pleaded not guilty and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

According to local reports, a British socialite stole nearly $300,000 from her dementia-suffering grandmother to fund her lavish lifestyle, including designer clothes and stays in Beverly Hills hotels. 38-year-old Emily Evans-Schreiber had only about $50 in her bank account when she was given control of her 94-year-old grandmother Rosina Evans’ finances. The former model’s mother had become worried about her daughter’s “high life” in London, and bought her a house in Naseby, tasking her with taking care of her grandma. Over the next eight months, Evans-Schreiber blew the cash on jet-setting, high-end hotels, and cosmetic treatments. Eventually, her mom became suspicious about how her jobless daughter was managing to afford her luxe lifestyle — and called the bank and the police. Bank statements for Rosina’s account showed the close to $300,000 in transfers to Evans-Schreiber, labeled as “bills,” “care,” and “savings.” She plead guilty to one count of theft and the judge handed down a two-year sentence, suspended for twenty months.
