A Pennsylvania man charged with breaking into a neighbor’s house and attacking several residents claimed he invaded the property while chasing after a “demon dog” at Satan’s direction. And, yes, crystal meth appears to have played a central role in the bizarre March 1st home invasion in Luzerne Township. According to a probable cause affidavit, a woman told cops that 31-year-old Terry Murphy entered her home without permission around 2:00 p.m. Sunday. Murphy allegedly choked the woman and her teenage daughter while yelling “Praise God.” He was then chased from the residence by the woman’s husband. “At that time Murphy walked back to his house...while talking about his demons and that he was talking to Jesus,” a state trooper noted. During police questioning, Murphy continued to yell about Jesus and his demons, and disclosed his pursuit of the demon dog. After being handcuffed and placed in a patrol car, Murphy was transported to a local hospital due to “extreme intoxication from crystal meth.” (https://bit.ly/2vJI9am)

Sharks can live for five centuries. Greenland Sharks are known to be some of the oldest living animals in our world. Researchers did carbon dating on a Greenland Shark that was caught in 2014 and found it to be around 392 years old. Further testing revealed that our fishy friends could be up to 500 years old. Yes, that would mean that our geriatric friends would have been alive when Leonardo Da Vinci painted the "Mona Lisa."

Spanish police have urged citizens to remain indoors during the COVID-19 state of emergency after encountering one citizen on the street dressed as a dinosaur. Video of the incident was posted to Twitter by the Murcia police department. The video shows an unidentified citizen being stopped by a unit of officers who were attempting to enforce the government's plan to limit the spread of the disease—caused by a novel coronavirus that is now spreading globally. On Friday, Spain's Prime Minister Pedro S├ínchez imposed a 15-day state of alarm that restricted free movement apart from traveling to work, food, health medication or for caregiving. One small exception was that pets can be taken out on short walks, but police noted on social media that dinosaurs are not considered to be included in this category. (https://bit.ly/392PdfW)

Some spring breakers in Florida didn’t get the social distancing memo. Hundreds of people packed Clearwater Beach as President Trump urged Americans to avoid gatherings of ten people during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Local reporter Sarah Hollenbeck, of WFTS-TV, captured the sunny scene with tight clusters of college-age beach-goers scattered across the sand. “BUSY BEACH! This is what @MyClearwater Beach looks like right now as spring break crowds flock to the sand,” Hollenbeck tweeted Monday. Clearwater city leaders are set to vote Thursday on a measure that would restrict or outright ban beach access. Other coastal cities in the Sunshine State have already announced beach closures, including Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale. (https://bit.ly/3d6WfDL)
