A Wisconsin man has been ordered to serve five years in state prison following what investigators say was his 15th drunk driving offense. During a hearing conducted Wednesday via Zoom, 67-year-old Mark Alan Johnson was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to a felony operating while intoxicated count. Johnson was arrested last November for OWI after driving his pickup truck into a ditch at an intersection near his home in Rice Lake, a northern Wisconsin city. Johnson, whose license had been revoked at the time of the one-vehicle crash, has been locked up in the Barron County jail since his arrest. Johnson, whose drunk driving collars have come in Wisconsin and neighboring Minnesota, is “eligible for the Substance Abuse Program after serving four years initial confinement,” according to a sentencing order. Johnson's blood alcohol content was measured at nearly twice the legal .08 limit. (

A guy in Canada flew into a violent rage at a Wendy’s (in Colwood, B.C.) after staff forgot to put mustard on his burger. Staff called police after the man exited his car and began striking a plexiglass barrier that separates the restaurant's takeout window.

A naked man was taken down by numerous bystanders in New York City. A brief video clip shows the naked man fighting people. It’s believed that the man was on drugs. He wasn’t totally naked — the man was wearing socks and shoes.

A new government study finds U.S. children and teens are still downing too many “empty calories” — primarily from sugary beverages, sweets, and pizza. The study did turn up some good news: In recent years, kids have been eating fewer empty calories, versus a decade before. The bad news is those sources still account for more than one-quarter of kids’ total calories.

A mom in the UK has put an end to her kids raiding the sweets drawer by installing a vending machine. Sarah Balsdon found the machine on Facebook Marketplace. If the kids want sweets they can earn money by doing chores or doing homework.

Ladies, if your husband doesn’t remember to pick up milk on the way home or forgets your birthday, it may not be his fault. Research shows men are worse than women at remembering to do things in the future. Rather than simply not listening when asked to do something, it seems that they forget what they were told.

A guy in Brazil upset that a friend had been arrested by police. So he walked into a station house to inquire about what was going on. This would not have been such a bad idea except for one thing: the guy was wanted by the cops on robbery charges and his wanted picture was posted right there in the station house for everyone to see.

Some Maryland residents are taxed for the rain. As they say, "nothing is certain but death and taxes." Depending on where in the world you live, rain may be just as much of an inevitability. And for some Maryland residents, rain and taxes are both inescapable and tied together thanks to the "rain tax," which was passed by the state legislature and signed into law in 2012. Nine counties, as well as the city of Baltimore, pay the annual fee that the Center for Watershed Protection describes as a "user fee charged to property owners for the service of managing the polluted runoff coming from their property."

Spanish porn star Nacho Vidal is under investigation for manslaughter, after a man died during a ceremony involving toad venom. Vidal and two other individuals were arrested on May 29th, according to his lawyer, David Salvador. They were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter and following an 11-month investigation, according to a statement from Spain’s law enforcement agency, the Guardia Civil. They appeared before a judge on the same day. All three were released provisionally and investigations continue. Police have not named the man who died. The names of the two other people — a man and a woman — who were arrested along with Vidal have not been made public. Salvador told CNN the death was a “tragic accident” and that his client was not responsible. Police said the incident took place in July 2019 in the town of Enguera in eastern Spain. The person died during what the Guardia Civil called a “mystical ritual involving the inhalation of venomous vapors from the Bufo alvarius toad.” (
