Two men in Pennsylvania have been cited for hunting under the influence of a controlled substance after they got caught stalking squirrels while under the influence of marijuana. On January 27th, Warden Harold L. Cole Jr. of the Pennsylvania Game Commission Northcentral Region filed charges alleging that Douglas W. Litz and Bryan T. Poust smoked cannabis before going hunting in the fall. The Williamsport men admitted to smoking before hunting on September 17th, when they were stopped by Warden Geril Schoonmaker in State Game Lands 252. While patrolling the area around 10:30 in the morning, Schoonmaker spotted a minivan parked on Ridge Road and observed the smell of weed wafting from it, per the complaint. A glass pipe, neon orange clothing, and shotgun shells were also visible in the vehicle registered to Poust. 32-year-old Litz and 34-year-old Poust have both been charged with one ungraded misdemeanor count of hunt/fur take under influence of a controlled substance, use/possession of drug paraphernalia, and two summary counts of commission regulations violated.

British man faces up to six years in prison for breaking Singapore’s
quarantine rules to meet up with his then-fiancée in the same hotel.
52-year-old Nigel Skea left his room at the five-star Ritz-Carlton
hotel on three occasions to meet his now-wife, 39-year-old Agatha
Maghesh Eyamala in another room. On one of the occasions, a mask-less
Skea climbed an emergency stairwell to enter a room that Eyamala had
booked at the hotel in downtown Marina Bay. He then spent nine hours
with Eyamala, who was not under quarantine. Most travelers are
required to stay in an assigned hotel room or at home to quarantine
for 14 days after arriving to Singapore. Skea pleaded guilty Monday
to breaking the country’s coronavirus quarantine, while Eyamala
pleaded guilty to aiding her partner in the hotel rendezvous. The
couple will be sentenced February 26th in court, where they each face
up to six years in jail and a fine of 10,000 Singapore dollars

Monday, February 15th at approximately 7:22 a.m., Atmore Police
Department officers responded to Chevron Gas Station regarding a
stolen vehicle. According to police reports, officers determined that
a gray Chevrolet Tahoe had been stolen while stationary at the gas
pump. Witnesses said a female, later identified as 22-year-old Hayli
Dawn Lape of Columbus, Ohio jumped into the vehicle and sped away,
damaging the gas pump as she did so. Alabama State Troopers and APD
officers pursued the vehicle as Lape drove onto I-65 southbound and
exited, where she crashed the vehicle. Police said Lape attempted to
elude officers on foot but was apprehended a short time later and
placed under arrest. She suffered minor injuries in the crash and was
taken to North Baldwin Infirmary in Bay Minette, where she was
treated and released. The Ohio woman was taken to the Escambia County
