A Michigan State University student named Jack DeBrabander was arrested early Saturday morning on two battery counts after allegedly urinating off the balcony of a Florida bar and striking two women below “in the face, mouth, head, hands, and arms.” Cops say that the 20-year-old DeBrabander was intoxicated when he “stepped to the railing” of a balcony above the Yard of Ale bar in St. Petersburg around 12:25 a.m. He then “removed his penis from his pants, and proceeded to urinate on” the two victims, who were seated downstairs on a sidewalk bench. Each of the women, criminal complaints state, was “struck in the face, mouth, head, hands, and arms” with DeBrabander's urine when they looked up to see what was hitting them. Court filings do not indicate whether either victim needed medical attention. Cops noted that DeBrabander was “found to be intoxicated and was uncooperative with questioning.” He was booked into the county jail on the misdemeanor raps, and was subsequently freed from custody after posting $1,000 bond.

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

One man has saved more than 200 people from suicide. It's a sad fact the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is a site where many suicides take place. However, one California Highway Patrol officer has done more to combat this problem than any other individual. Officer Kevin Briggs, who battles depression himself, has personally talked more than 200 people down from the proverbial ledge throughout his career. After retiring in 2013, Briggs wrote a book called Guardian of the Golden Gate and now goes on speaking tours to encourage public discussion of suicide and mental illness.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A domestic argument turned repulsive Friday evening when a Florida Woman “smeared dog feces” in her fiancĂ©’s face. Sheriff’s deputies responding to a disturbance call at a St. Petersburg home spoke to a man who said he had been “engaged in an argument” with his fiancĂ©, 41-year-old Jane Marie Faulkner. During that confrontation, the man told cops, Faulkner “repeatedly” hit him and “smeared dog feces” in his face. Faulkner, who was intoxicated, reportedly “spontaneously admitted to deputies they did smear dog feces in the face of the victim.” Faulkner, cops added, “was unwilling to provide any more details of the argument.” Faulkner was arrested on a domestic battery charge after deputies judged her to be the “primary aggressor” during the 9:00 p.m. confrontation. She was released from the county jail late Saturday evening after posting $2,000 bond. A judge has ordered her to have no contact with the victim.(
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Bruce McConville would rather burn his own money than give it to his ex-wife, and a disbelieving Superior Court judge is giving him thirty days in jail to rethink his claim. The 55-year-old Ottawa businessman and failed mayoral candidate sold properties and businesses behind her back, then withdrew the $1 million and, he claims, burned the money in two bonfires: $743,000 last Sept. 23rd, and $296,000 on Dec. 15th. McConville has long defied a court order to file an affidavit about his finances, notably where the money went from the secret sales. Because his financial affairs remain a mystery, the court has been unable to figure out what he owes in child and spousal support. As a result, he has been paying neither. McConville also defied a court order not to sell his properties because there was a fear that he was trying to keep the proceeds out of the court’s reach. McConville, in fact, sold some assets to his former accountant. The judge told court he didn’t think McConville set anything on fire, let alone $1-million in cash. (
