A 51-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly spiking his date’s drink as she used a restaurant bathroom. Peel Regional Police said 51-year-old Tariq Nawaz dined with an unnamed woman at the eatery in Mississauga, Ontario on October 21st. After the woman left to go to the bathroom, police allege a waitress saw Nawaz spike her drink. The waitress told the woman about the alleged incident.

How’s this for a parenting lesson? An elementary school in France had to ban late-arriving parents from hurling their kids over its closed gate when dropping them off. Principal Sanaa Meziane explained that some tardy moms and dads “were literally throwing their children” over the six-foot fence outside the Trillade school in Avignon. “It hasn’t happened that many times, but as little as it happened, we preferred to get ahead of it,” Meziane said, adding she believed it was just a matter of time before a child was hurt. Educators put up posters at the school’s entrance depicting an adult throwing a kid over a fence with the words “Attention Danger.” “I do not throw my children over the gate!” the notice reads. The sign also includes instructions to parents who arrive after the 8:30 a.m. bell to come back at 10:00 a.m. or 3:00 p.m. when the gates are reopened.(https://bit.ly/32D0h2V)

Transportation tweeted a photo of the car with the Polaris topper
with the message: “Folks, don't try this at home.” The
23-year-old driver was given a warning about the unsafe hauling
technique and cited for failing to buckle up. The driver, Matthew
Schmit, of Clayton, told the trooper he had just bought the
snowmobile and was driving it over to a friend’s house. “I know
it looks sketchy, but we had it strapped down and shook it,” he
