Mail fraud suspect named Speedy Gonzalez arrested in Georgia. Authorities said the 35-year-old Buford man was taken into custody Saturday during a traffic stop in Gwinnett County. After months on the run, a mail fraud suspect who lived up to his legal name of Speedy Gonzalez has been arrested in Georgia. Authorities said the 35-year-old Buford man was taken into custody Saturday during a traffic stop in Gwinnett County. Police said in a statement that officers began looking for Gonzalez after a victim reported in January that multiple checks were stolen from his mailbox. Gonzalez is accused of swiping the checks and buying more than $3,000 worth of merchandise before returning the items for cash. He was booked into jail on forgery and theft charges. It's unclear whether he has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.

Shaq only ever made one three-pointer. Shaquille O'Neal made the only three-point shot he would ever make in his entire career on February 16, 1996. When the Orlando Magic played the Milwaukee Bucks, O'Neal received an almost full-court pass before he shot the three-pointer. Despite being the only official three-point shot in his career, he went down in NBA history as one of the greatest of all time.

Sometimes people get a bit stir-crazy in the middle of a Coronavirus lockdown. An unidentified man in northern Spain was busted this week for taking his fish on a walk in its bowl. He appeared to be trying to take advantage of a rule allowing pet owners to leave their homes so that their pets can relieve themselves. The National Police tweeted a picture of the fishy suspect with his finned friend sitting in a bowl on a bench. Spain is under a state of emergency, greatly limiting when residents can leave their homes. Last month, police in Murcia caught a man in a T-rex costume roaming the city streets. The department posted a video of the encounter to the “Theme from Jurassic Park.”

One California city’s scheme to stop kids from gathering at a skate park amid the Coronavirus crisis by filling it with sand spectacularly backfired — when the park became a hotspot for dirt bikes. Bikers flocked to Ralph’s Skate Court in San Clemente, where they flaunted social distancing rules by popping wheelies and catching air on half pipes, video footage shows. “The fact the city put the sand in there to try to social distance everyone – I think it’s a big joke,” Connor Ericsson, who posted the video on Instagram, told KUSI News. “These kids are cooped up inside their houses, they just want to go to the skate park and have some fun.” Some of the dirt bikers then helped local skaters dig out the sand so they could do some “shredding,” too, he said. The city first shuttered the park and put up “no trespassing” signs on April 1st to encourage social distancing amid the pandemic. (https://bit.ly/3axxIVU)
