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

Sweat doesn't actually stink. You might notice that any sweat you produce right after a shower doesn't smell so bad. That's because your sweat itself isn't stinky; it's the bacteria on your skin that breaks the sweat down that causes the odor. Additionally, you'll find that the sweat on your arms and legs doesn't smell as much as your armpits. That's because sweat glands in your armpits secrete more protein into a dark, damp environment—the perfect place and food for bacteria.

During his last encounter at the toll bridge, they said that the attendant presented Stolemyer with an article about his arrest on March 9th for impersonating a law enforcement officer. Stotelmyer then put away his badge and paid the toll. However, on March 13th, deputies said that they once again arrested Stotelmyer at his home.

Last Tuesday evening, officers were called to a CVS in reference to a man trying to make a purchase with counterfeit money. When officers arrived at the CVS, authorities took 22-year-old Jeremy Cooper into custody. According to an arrest affidavit, Cooper had several $100 bills in his hand and on his person that were counterfeit. “I personally examined the 26 $100 bills where I observed they were all not consistent in texture with a real $100 bill. Each bill also had the same serial number, and each bill displayed a Chinese symbol on the back,” the affidavit states. Cooper was arrested on two complaints of possession of a counterfeit instrument. (
