A group of concerned residents in the Yaletown area say a man exposed himself during the daytime while jumping on a woman's car in the middle of a Downtown Vancouver intersection. In a Twitter post, a group called A Safer Vancouver writes that the man, “exposed himself yesterday after jumping all over a woman's car.” The group also shares a couple videos of the incident, which show a distressed man with his pants falling down past his waist jumping on to the hood of a vehicle. The man also runs down the street and appears to be swinging a piece of clothing over his head; he also tosses a business's sign over his head. A person in the video says, “The poor woman in the car. She'll never forget this.” The police stated that the man was reportedly high on drugs and had to be taken into custody by police under the Mental Health Act. (https://bit.ly/2Vrtf2o)

The Queen celebrates two birthdays every year. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926, which is why she celebrates her actual birthday each spring. However, the head of the British royal family also observes a second "official" birthday celebration called the Trooping the Colour. King George II started the tradition in 1748 because his own birthday was in November, which was too cold for an annual parade. He decided to hold an additional ceremony during the warmer weather.

An Oregon man was briefly jailed for contempt after he refused to wear a mask and walked out of the courtroom where he was scheduled to appear for a harassment charge and a traffic violation. John Kulbeth was anxious to get his court appearance completed last Wednesday. He arrived for municipal court in Sweet Home, Oregon, an hour earlier than his scheduled 10:00 a.m. appearance. A court clerk advised him to put on a face mask, he declined and stood in the back of the courtroom with his 6-year-old daughter, Baylee, far away from everyone else. Kulbeth told the judge he would leave, took his daughter’s hand, and walked to the parking lot. Sweet Home Police Chief Jeff Lynn approached Kulbeth and told him the judge had ordered a warrant for his arrest. Kulbeth was not arrested for refusing to wear a mask, but because he left the courtroom without his case being completed. (https://bit.ly/2ZilooT)

UK Police say that a “brand new” Lamborghini was totaled in a crash — just twenty minutes after being taken out of the showroom. West Yorkshire police tweeted that the unlucky driver behind the wheel of a black Lamborghini Huracan Spyder — which reportedly start at just under $265,000 for 2020 models — stopped due to a mechanical failure Wednesday on the M1 in West Yorkshire when it was struck from behind by an “innocent motorist.” BBC News reported that the driver of the second vehicle, a van, suffered head injuries in the crash, but was not seriously hurt. Part of the highway had to be shut down to clear out the Lamborghini and the van, causing huge delays. The driver behind the wheel of the quarter-million-dollar sports car has not been immediately identified. (https://bit.ly/2YxqSgv)
