A California man climbed into a large fan at a vineyard — and remained stuck for two days until authorities found him there with a bunch of meth. The 38-year-old was discovered Tuesday by a deputy responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle parked near the Santa Rosa winery. After spotting a hat on a piece of farming equipment, the deputy looked inside and found the man wedged inside. Asked why he’d decided to go into the shaft of a vineyard fan, the man “indicated he liked to take pictures of the engines of old farm equipment,” the statement said. But authorities noted that the farm equipment wasn’t antique — and that the man “had far more methamphetamine than camera equipment.” “The motivation to climb into the fan shaft remains a total mystery,” the sheriff’s office said. The man required medical treatment but is expected to recover. He will be charged with trespassing and drug possession, as well as violations of a probation case. “Lucky for this guy the citizen called in to report his vehicle, otherwise this story ends with a far more tragic outcome,” the statement said.(

A tick bite can make you allergic to red meat. Plenty of people have food allergies, but few are the result of an insect bite. In a strange and growing trend, some people who get bitten by the Lone Star tick can develop a sudden allergy to red meat. Beef, lamb, and pork (which are technically classified as red meat) can make people with this allergy experience headaches, sneezing, a runny nose, and nausea. In severe cases, it can cause the person to be unable to breathe. For some sufferers, the allergy fades over time, but for others, it's permanent. PRESENTS... A NEWS HEADLINE...

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

An airline crew called on passengers on a cross-country flight to help stop a fight that broke out in the cabin, forcing the Delta Air Lines jet to divert its route Friday. Flight attendants on Flight 1730 from Los Angeles to Atlanta called on able-bodied men to help subdue an “unruly” passenger who started a fight, according to a report and video of the incident, which was posted on social media Friday. Despite social media posts suggesting that the passenger may have tried to breach the cockpit, a spokesperson for Delta denied that was the case, although the flight was eventually diverted to Oklahoma City. The airline later identified the unhinged traveler as an off-duty flight attendant — and said the person had tried to take control of the plane’s PA system before others on board intervened. The disruptive passenger’s name wasn’t released. The FBI took the person into custody. “Thanks to the crew and passengers of Delta Flight 1730 (LAX to ATL) who assisted in detaining an unruly passenger as the flight diverted to Oklahoma City (OKC),” the spokesperson said in a statement. “The aircraft landed without incident and the passenger was removed by law enforcement. We apologize to our customers for the delay and any additional inconvenience this caused.” (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

No one was injured after a blind man got behind the wheel of a truck, and crashed into the front of a grocery store Tuesday morning. KPD says 62-year-old Christian Searcy crashed a truck into the front cart stall at the Safeway in Kennewick just before 8:00 a.m. Authorities say Searcy had been in the parking lot overnight but are unsure why he then got behind the wheel. It's also unclear exactly what he was doing in the parking lot overnight. There's minor damage to a pillar at the front of the store, and to the front of the truck. Police also say Searcy had a knife, but put it away when officers asked him to do so. Searcy is facing a possible charge of suspicion of driving with a suspended license. This is an ongoing investigation. (
