An Illinois stripper arrested for drunk driving asked police to “take her through a fast food drive-thru” on the way to jail, where she later exposed a breast and announced that she would not be removing her nipple rings during the booking process. 28-year-old Shatara Mitchell was behind the wheel of a Pontiac G6 when Peoria police pulled her over last Saturday for running a stop sign around 1:45 a.m. Mitchell, wearing a halter top and cutoff shorts, had worked that evening at Luxxx Showgirls, a gentlemen’s club in West Peoria. A patrolman reported that Mitchell’s car smelled of alcohol and she had “droopy eyelids.” The cop added, “Shatara seemed to be relaxed as her radio was loud and she was dancing in her seat.” An initial breath test recorded Mitchell’s blood alcohol content at .204, more than twice the legal limit of .08. After being handcuffed and placed in a squad car, Mitchell reportedly asked an officer to make a pit stop at a fast food restaurant so that she could get something to eat at the drive-thru window. She was charged with drunk driving and disregarding a stop sign. (https://bit.ly/2TWx5jt)

You can always "see" your nose. The human brain is capable of amazing things, but in order to do those things, it needs to block out distractions through a process called unconscious selective attention. The nose is one of those distractions. In his landmark 1960s study, Ulric Neisser discovered this phenomenon after he asked participants to count the number of times basketball players passed a ball in a video. What the large majority failed to notice in the video was a girl walking through the middle of the court with an umbrella, because they were so focused on counting.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
Fire Marshals in Louisiana said a man set his mother’s shed on fire out of anger for not receiving a federal stimulus check amid the coronavirus pandemic. 51-year-old Marvin Smith Jr. got into a dispute with his mother over the federal payout before the arson happened Friday. Investigators were able to determine the fire was intentionally set inside the Hamburg shed. They arrested Smith after witnesses told them they saw him in the shed moments before the fire started. Witnesses also told investigators they saw Smith flee the scene after the fire. He was booked into jail on an arson charge after Avoyelles Parish deputies found him armed with a knife. Smith has also been charged with other crimes by the parish's Sheriff’s office. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf. (https://abcn.ws/2VR5vE6)
