California Police reported an incident on Friday they called a “very messy arrest.” Police say Anthony Espinoza was contacted in Paso Robles when he was pulled over while riding a bicycle on the wrong side of the road. Officers attempted a probation search. Espinoza fled eventually making it to the 1400 block of Riverside. He then reportedly defecated himself, put his hands in his pants and removed the feces with his bare hands. He “mushed the poop onto himself in an attempt to ward off the officers,” according to police. He was arrested and methamphetamine was located in his backpack. He was transported to the San Luis Obispo County Jail on the charges. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

The greedy bros who bought almost 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to profit off the coronavirus were finally cleaned out on Sunday — when they were shut down by Tennessee prosecutors. Just a day after they whined about the likes of eBay and Amazon closing their price-gouging attempts, Matt Colvin and Noah Colvin were ordered by the state’s attorney general to “stop buying and selling medical goods and products.” “We will not tolerate price gouging in this time of exceptional need, and we will take aggressive action to stop it,” Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III said Sunday of the investigation. The anti-price-gouging law was in place because Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee had declared a state of emergency over COVID-19. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by
An American Airlines passenger delayed a flight to Nashville for over eight hours by joking about having the coronavirus. The flight was set to depart 6:30 p.m. Saturday from Dallas, but takeoff was hampered by a man, who first refused to lift his tray table, then claimed he had the deadly virus. “People were freaked out because nobody knew what was going on,” another passenger reported to the local news. “People didn’t know if he was actually sick or if he really didn’t have coronavirus or not.” The unruly passenger was ejected from the plane by hazmat crews and police officers, who then explained the situation to freaked-out travelers. But the flight was still delayed by unnerved crew members, who refused to fly after the fiasco. It was supposed to get to Nashville at 8:40 p.m. Saturday but didn’t get there until 4:40 a.m. Sunday. American Airlines said the man was arrested for making a false claim, but didn’t provide further comment about the incident. (
