A Georgia man was sentenced Tuesday to 151 months in prison for illegally transporting methamphetamine and heroin inside children’s candy. 30-year-old Atlanta resident Cleveland James McKinney pled guilty to the charges last November, according to a press release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Authorities said McKinney traveled to Brandon, Mississippi from Atlanta in April 2018 to receive a drug shipment from Mexico. The drugs were hidden in shrink-wrapped, bulk-packaged children’s candy. McKinney was supposed to take the drugs back to Atlanta for delivery to his co-conspirator, Evelyn Michelle Hernandez. Unbeknownst to him, agents with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) had already intercepted the delivery and swapped the meth and heroin with a “false substance” inside the children’s candy packaging. He was arrested shortly after leaving Mississippi on his return trip. (

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

Star Trek's Scotty stormed the beach at Normandy. Canadian actor James Doohan, best known for playing Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on the original Star Trek series, served in World War II with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. As a commissioned lieutenant, he led his troop up a mine-strewn Juno Beach as part of the Allied Forces' D-Day invasion. Later in the day, he was wounded by friendly fire that caused the amputation of the middle finger on his right hand. You might not have noticed it because, during his time on Star Trek, directors did the best they could to avoid showing the injury on screen.

He made away with a lot of doughnuts — but no dough. A hatchet-wielding thief was only thinking with his stomach when he robbed an Oregon doughnut shop this weekend — stealing a box of treats but not a cent from the register. 40-year-old Christopher James allegedly barged into a Voodoo Doughnut location in downtown Portland around 3:40 a.m. Saturday, weapon in hand. James reportedly jumped over the counter and began stuffing a box with doughnuts. Nothing else was taken. The bakeshop, which is open around the clock on weekends, confirmed to the paper that no one was injured in the incident. Police caught the suspect red-handed about a block away, eating a doughnut and holding a pink box from the shop. He ran away, but cops chased him for about two blocks and arrested him. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Florida police report that a victim was struck in the head with a thrown McDonald’s McDouble burger during a domestic disturbance. Cops allege that Tyler Hardeman “engaged in a verbal argument with the victim” at a residence in Holiday, a Tampa suburb. During the 9:45 p.m. squabble, the 23-year-old Hardeman first “threw a McDouble at the defendant’s head,” a complaint affidavit reports. The McDouble hit the victim in the left ear, but did not cause injury. Hardeman also allegedly threw a vaping device, striking the victim in the left knee, causing “redness and lacerations.” When the victim sought to run from Hardeman, cops say he grabbed the victim’s shirt, “which resulted in the shirt being ripped off the victim.” Hardeman was arrested for domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Hardeman, who works as a packer at a liquor store, was booked into the Pasco County jail on the felony count. (


I read a headline and Heidi (and you) need to guess if the story is FAKE NEWS or something that really happened in the state of FLORIDA.
