A man who drove a car into a retention pond is now facing charges. Officers were originally responding to a criminal mischief call at a home in Casselberry. Investigators said Justin Lorrison went to that home asking the woman who lives there for help after he was kicked out by his grandmother. The woman tried to offer the 29-year-old $100 to stay at a nearby hotel, but Lorrison refused twice saying, “Don’t play, I will light your (expletive) house on fire.” Records show the woman went back inside, then looked out the window to see if Lorrison had left. The woman told officers she watched as Lorrison then backed his gold Cadillac into her car, shoving it about a foot, then drove off. While police were speaking with the victim, officers were patrolling the area looking for Lorrison’s car. Records show police spotted the Cadillac but it took off speeding until officers lost sight of it and they did not pursue it. Witnesses told police the car appeared to lose control and ended up in a retention pond. Lorrison reportedly smelled of alcohol and failed a sobriety test. He faces charges of hit-and-run, driving under the influence, and reckless driving. (https://bit.ly/3dhuoTp)

FACT FOR YOU:
Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
Pringles aren't actually potato chips. The next time you see a can of Pringles, take a closer look—you won't see the word "chip" anywhere on the packaging. That's because Pringles aren't made of thinly-sliced potatoes, but instead dehydrated potato flakes pressed into their signature parabolic shape. That's what makes them less greasy. But when other potato chip manufacturers complained, the Food and Drug Administration ruled that Pringles couldn't be marketed as chips. The company eventually settled on "potato crisp."

Alleged ‘Uber monster’ Arna Kimiai has pleaded not guilty to all charges despite previously admitting to poor conduct in a meandering topless video on her Instagram last month. According to SFist, 24-year-old Arna Kimiai and her friend, 24-year-old Malaysia King, were both arrested and charged last month as the monster riders involved in the much-publicized March 7th assault on Uber driver Subhakar Khadka. A third passenger was present but she has not been identified nor charged. Khadka says he was assaulted by the pair after he requested that they put on a mask to reduce the risk of coronavirus. It ultimately led to the young women becoming belligerent, with video showing Kimiai performatively coughing on Khadka and ripping off his own face mask. Kimiai remains free on bail pending a May 3 hearing. She was arrested about a week after the video went viral on social media, having negotiated a surrender with authorities. Her account on the social media platform has since been deleted.(https://bit.ly/3n2hhZw)

Florida nurse performed a butt injection on a patient while waiting
for her virtual court hearing to start. Miami Herald reporter David
Ovalle earlier Wednesday tweeted a picture of a man getting a butt
injection from a female nurse during the Zoom court hearing. “MIAMI
ZOOM COURT: We’ve reached peak 305. Someone appears to be getting a
butt injection while appearing in a virtual hearing,” Ovalle wrote
in his post, referring to Miami's zip code. “It's my understanding
that the defendant was actually the nurse or whoever was giving the
injection, which actually makes it a gazillion times more bizarre,”
Ovalle said. The Miami Dade state attorney’s office issued a
statement saying, “The case was on the court calendar, via Zoom,
for a status hearing (also called a sounding). It seems that during
the waiting period prior to the case being brought before the judge,
Niurka Aguero was involved in some kind of procedure involving a male
receiving an injection in the buttocks, which she appears to have
inadvertently broadcast.” The Miami-Dade state attorney's office
didn’t provide any more information on the defendant.
