Officers with the Augusta (ME) Police Department posted on social media an image of two patrol SUVs parked behind a riding lawnmower that had reportedly been ridden by an individual accused of operating the vehicle under the influence. According to NBC News, the agency said on Facebook that while it is not uncommon for an OUI arrest on a lawnmower, it's a rare case in wintertime. Comments from citizens on the post were understandably humorous. “I drove by during the field sobriety test he could hardly stand,” one person said. Another person said, “Wife must have taken the car keys away.” According to a local citizen, this guy was so drunk he could hardly stand. (https://bit.ly/2VBdhDv)

Napoleon was once attacked by thousands of rabbits. Napoleon Bonaparte was once one of the most powerful men in Europe, but he suffered an ignominious defeat at the hands (or paws) of rabbits. After a military victory, Napoleon's chief of staff organized a rabbit hunt to celebrate. Thousands of rabbits were brought in to be set loose, but instead of hopping away when the cages were opened, they turned to attack, swarming the partygoers. After trying and failing to shoo them away, the great Emperor Napoleon ran for the safety of his carriage.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
A Flagler County, Florida man has been arrested after deputies say he was caught red-handed stealing groceries last Friday night, then later pretended to be a federal officer. The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shoplifting incident at Publix. They came into contact with a man later identified as 60-year-old Leroy Stotelmyer, who was caught trying to exit the store with two boxes of potatoes and a grouper fillet. Deputies say when the Publix Loss Prevention Officer stopped him, Stotelmyer stated he didn't have to pay for the items and identified himself as a U.S. Marshal. Stotelmyer then placed the shopping bag on the ground and exited the store. When the Loss Prevention Officer then approached Stotelmyer in his vehicle in the parking lot, they say Stotelmyer displayed a gold badge in a black holder that read “United States Marshal” on it. Stotelmyer was arrested and taken into custody for False Impersonation of a Federal Law Enforcement Officer, Petit Shoplifting, and Resisting a Merchant. He was booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. (https://bit.ly/2xhy19h)
