A drunken North Carolina woman assaulted a federal air marshal aboard a United Airlines flight from Frankfurt to Virginia – after she threatened to “stab everyone on the plane” and then commit suicide. 27-year-old Dana Ghazi Mustafa was in a lavatory on the flight from Germany to Dulles International Airport near Washington, DC, on Saturday when flight attendants heard a smoke alarm and told her smoking is forbidden. After returning to hear seat, a bawling Mustafa told the crew as she reeked from alcohol that she was flying home to see her family — falsely claiming they had just been killed in a car crash caused by a drunken driver, according to a criminal complaint. She then punched the TV screen in front of her seat and reportedly yelled, “I’m going to stab everyone on the plane then kill myself. I’m Palestinian! That’s how we get down!” When arrested by the FBI after landing, she admitted that she had concocted the story about her family being wiped out by the drunken motorist.

The Australian government banned the word "mate" for a day. There are probably slang or informal words that get on your nerves from time to time, particularly when you think something should be taken seriously. In 2005, Australian Parliament took a few citizen complaints a little too seriously and banned anyone on their staff from using the word "mate" while at work. Fortunately, Prime Minister John Howard objected, claiming that "mate" was an important part of Australian culture, and the ban was overturned within 24 hours.

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do... twenty-three years later? A Louisiana resident appears to have broken a procrastination record — or just brazenly used an old license plate — after police said the driver was caught with a tag that expired in September 1997. “We Can’t Make This Stuff Up!” police wrote in a baffling Facebook post last weekend. The traffic stop happened last Thursday in Slidell, just north of New Orleans. The city’s police department also posted a photo of the plate, suggesting the officer was in disbelief with the unusual find. The driver’s response? A hectic life, apparently. “Sorry, officer. I’ve been busy lately and totally forgot to renew my vehicle registration,” the unidentified person reportedly said. “I will take care of it as soon as I get home!”

Cheektowaga, New York Police say a pistol was inadvertently fired in a Texas De Brazil restaurant just before 6:00 p.m. last Thursday. 19-year-old Anthony Ciccarelli of Tonawanda reached into the front pocket of his pants as he received the bill and accidentally fired the gun.
