An alleged drunk driver in Florida initially declined a breathalyzer test, telling a deputy sheriff on Sunday, “You didn’t pull me over, I pulled you over,” a report said. 63-year-old Juan Zamora gave the puzzling response after flashing his headlights at a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy’s squad car in Ocala in order to ask for directions to an auto parts store. The deputy stopped and smelled alcohol coming from Zamora as he asked the question. The driver, who had a 15-year-old passenger, also had bloodshot eyes. Zamora allegedly admitted to downing two shots of bourbon earlier that day. When he finally took the breathalyzer test, he failed, registering above Florida’s 0.8 legal limit. Authorities later found a bottle of whiskey in his car and a white substance, which field-test positive for cocaine, in Zamora’s shirt sleeve. He was charged with DUI and cocaine possession.

An 8-week-old Chihuahua has made an unlikely friend at a Rochester, New York, animal shelter: a pigeon who can’t fly. Herman, who has been living at the shelter for over a year, was likely left flightless due to the West Nile virus or a brain injury, while Lundy arrived six weeks ago unable to use his hind legs. Lundy and Herman snuggle together and have become best friends.

Rolls-Royce makes the most expensive car in the world. Currently, the most expensive car in the world is a Rolls-Royce Sweptail that sold for $13 million. However, even if you have that kind of dough lying around, you won't be able to buy it—only one was made, and it was custom-built from the ground up according to the buyer's specifications. But brand-new custom cars have nothing on used classics; the recent sale of a 1963 Ferrari GTO for $70 million is supposedly the highest price ever paid for a car.

A Florida shoplifter trying to get away from a DeLand store stripped naked and steaks tumbled out of his pants. Police found 28-year-old Stefan Short running out of the store in the buff, and when he refused to stop officers shot him with a Taser. Officers were dispatched to the store and told that Short was being pinned to the ground by a manager and a civilian but that he was fighting them. Witnesses reported to police that in an attempt to get away, Short wriggled out of his clothes. Police said Short stole four packs of ribeye steaks valued at $41.24. Short was charged with resisting an officer without violence, resisting a store employee while committing a theft, and first-degree petty theft. He remained held without bail Monday at the Volusia County Branch Jail.
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by SingleStudentLoan.com
A triple dog dare gone wrong. It might seem like it came right out of a movie, but it actually did happen in Green Bay on Friday. A student at a local elementary school got his tongue caught on a cold metal pole. “We all grew up as kids and saw ‘The Christmas Story,’” said Police Commander Kevin Warych, referring to the 1983 movie where this exact thing happened. “Curiosity probably got the best of this child who subsequently got [their] tongue stuck to the post.” Paramedics and police responded in the 7 o'clock hour Friday morning. In subzero temperatures, metal can become cold enough to flash freeze the moisture on your tongue, sticking you to its surface and possibly causing injury. Warych says you shouldn't try it at home.
