A California man was arrested after he allegedly forced the driver of a tanker truck carrying red wine to pull over, climbed onboard and began drinking from the tank, as the truck continued down the highway. Gabriel Moreno, 39, was arrested after he allegedly climbed underneath a tanker truck moving down the highway, unscrewed a valve and gulped down the red wine that gushed out. The dash cam video from a Cherokee Freight Lines tanker truck hauling bulk red wine through Modesto, California, allegedly shows suspect 39-year-old Gabriel Moreno in a sedan, putting his hazard lights on and directing the truck to the side of the highway. Believing he may have had a mechanical problem, the truck driver pulled over, only to see Moreno get out of his car wearing just underwear. He ran to the passenger side of the truck and out of view of the camera. As the driver pulled back on the freeway, another onboard camera captured the suspect jump back into view then on the back of the wine truck. With no shirt and no shoes, Moreno rode on the side of the tanker then climbed underneath the truck as it hit freeway speeds. Authorities say the suspect unscrewed a valve that sent the tanker’s wine gushing out, and he gulped as much as he could.
The truck driver called the California Highway Patrol after he noticed a dashboard gauge showing he was losing fluids, hundreds of gallons of red wine. “I’ve listened to radio. I’ve listened to thousands and thousands of calls. This one’s up there in the top 10,” said Officer Tom Olsen with the Modesto CHP. “This individual was able to release the wine from under the tanker, and he placed himself underneath the tanker in such a manner - the best way to describe this was somebody doing snow angels.” Moreno was arrested. The trucking company weighed the tanker following the incident and found it had lost about 1,000 gallons of red wine, most of it ending up on the highway. That’s enough to fill about 5,000 bottles.

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
There's an entire family in Italy that feels almost no pain. Members of the Marsili family handle injuries remarkably well and that's because they only experience pain for a moment before it fades away. Letizia Marsili told Smithsonian Magazine, "I just thought of it as part of who I was. I was strong, I was resilient. I bounced back." However, when a researcher at the University of Siena, where Letizia works, noticed her unusual tolerance for pain—which is something her mother, sister, and son all share—the two decided to collaborate to see what was going on. They discovered that Letizia experiences "the good pain, the pain that alerts us to danger. Then it disappear[s]. The bad kind of pain, the chronic pain, the ongoing pain that we take painkillers for—she simply [doesn't] feel that."

A Washington state software engineer is charged with fraudulently seeking over $1.5 million in Coronavirus relief funds intended for small business loans, prosecutors announced Friday. 35-year-old Issaquah resident Baoke Zhang is accused of filing applications seeking forgivable loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
