Whoever said “all deals are made on the golf course” probably didn’t have this in mind. A set of golf clubs filled with cocaine was intercepted at the Miami International Mail Facility, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said last Tuesday. An agent conducting a routine search of the clubs on Monday discovered the illegal drug in the hollowed-out shafts. The package, which came from Colombia, was bound for New York. The drug’s street value was approximately $30,000, according to the CBP. This equated to about 1.14 pounds. No arrests have been made. The CBP seized about 3,700 pounds of narcotics every day in 2019, according to the agency. (https://hrld.us/2x1VMSw)

There's a world record—and a happy ending—for the greatest distance thrown in a car accident. This is one world record you may not want to try and top. A car traveling 70 miles per hour struck Matthew McKnight, an off-duty paramedic, when he stopped to help out with an accident on the side of an interstate in 2001. He was thrown 118 feet, almost half a football field. Dr. Eric Brader, his emergency room physician, told McKnight he should send it into the Guinness Book of World Records, but McKnight brushed it off as a joke. Brader was so impressed by the feat that he sent in the paperwork anyways, which was approved in 2003, but didn't make the cut until its 2008 edition.

A woman arrested for assaulting her boyfriend shouted “I have the coronavirus” before intentionally coughing in the face of a paramedic who she sprayed with “copious amounts of saliva,” police charge. Responding early Wednesday to a domestic violence call in Lady Lake, an Orlando suburb, police encountered the bloodied victim. The man, whose nose was broken, told officers that he had been attacked by his girlfriend, LaDonald Shakkie Holmes. The man said he was lying in bed with 38-year-old Holmes when she “told the victim she wanted to have sex.” The victim recalled that he declined to engage with Holmes “since she is leaving him to get back with her ex-husband.” She reportedly became agitated and attacked him. After an EMS worker “sedated the arrestee,” Holmes was being placed on a stretcher when she shouted “I have the coronavirus.” Holmes then allegedly coughed directly on the face of an EMS worker, which “resulted in copious amounts of saliva landing on the paramedic’s face.” She is now facing a pair of felony counts.
