Two people were taken into custody after police said security cameras captured video of them breaking into Neyland Stadium just after midnight Monday. Dispatchers reported that five people were seen crawling under a hole in the fence near gate 22. When UTPD officers arrived, they said two people carrying 24 packs of beer were still inside the fence. One person admitted that an officer warned them it was a bad idea to break into the stadium because it is under 24-hour surveillance. Both Rachel Barber and Spencer Ngumuya reportedly admitted to officers they had stolen beer from the concession stand inside the stadium. Officers reported the stolen beer had a value of $624. Barber and Ngumuya were booked into the Knox County Detention Center on charges of burglary.

More than a year after former big leaguer Jose Canseco said he was looking for Bigfoot and UFOs, the eccentric slugger is worried they might have contracted Coronavirus. “Can Bigfoot or aliens get Coronavirus I need to know because I have had contact with them," Canseco tweeted over the weekend. Many on Twitter poked fun at the message, specifically mentioning that no one has ever seen the mythical Bigfoot. “Bigfoot is notoriously good at social distancing, I wouldn't worry about it,” one person wrote. “Jose you're supposed to keep 6 feet from ALL creatures even the nonexistent ones,” another person responded. This is not the first time Canseco, who has a long history of making wild and outlandish comments on Twitter, has tweeted about aliens and Bigfoot. In February 2019, he said he was launching a "Bigfoot and alien Excursion," however it's unknown if the trip ever took place. (

After cops found a pair of firearms and a Kevlar vest in his SUV, a Florida Man disavowed ownership of the weapons, claiming he had sold the vehicle “to his cousin John Wick.” Responding early to a 9-1-1 call about a domestic violence incident, cops questioned 27-year-old Getro Gelin at his residence in Port St. Lucie. A woman told police that Gelin shoved her to the ground and threatened her with a firearm. After the victim said that Gelin may have hidden the gun in his Porsche SUV, cops searched the vehicle and recovered a Glock 21 pistol, a semi-automatic rifle, and a bulletproof vest. When asked about the guns in the auto, Gelin “replied he had sold the Porsche to his cousin John Wick.” Gelin subsequently “stated he lied about the name, but that he would not reveal his cousin’s name.” “John Wick” is the title character in a blood- and bullet-soaked movie franchise starring Keanu Reeves. Gelin was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery. (
