After causing a disturbance at the drive-thru window, a McDonald’s customer broke the window and crawled through the opening into the restaurant, where he attacked a female manager. Investigators allege that 33-year-old My-chael Jordan was asked to leave the premises of the Pinellas Park eatery around 4:00 a.m. Sunday following a flap at the 24-hour drive-thru. But instead of departing McDonald’s, Jordan, who lives two miles from the restaurant, “broke the drive-thru window, crawled in through the window and grabbed and pushed” the 53-year-old employee. When cops subsequently confronted Jordan, he allegedly fought with three officers and was “tased multiple times with no effect.” “All three officers suffered scrapes and cuts” during the struggle with Jordan, who allegedly spit on the Pinellas Park Police Department cops. Police noted that Jordan showed an “indication of drug influence.” Jordan was arrested and charged with four felonies: burglary with assault or battery and three counts of resisting police with violence. He is locked up in lieu of $155,000 bond. (https://bit.ly/3idQcCg)

The Queen has some hidden hideaways. Since the early 13th century, the city of London has officially paid rent to the Crown for two small pieces of property. Fortunately for the city, the price has stayed the same for more than 800 years: one knife, one ax, six horseshoes, and 61 nails, presented every autumn in the Ceremony of Quit Rents. Although one of these properties is located in the Moors in Shropshire and the other is near the Royal Courts of Justice in the city itself, no one knows the exact location of the Queen's land.

mayoral hopeful in Albuquerque was punched at a campaign event by a
man who was also accused of flying a drone adorned with a dildo
around the candidate while he was on stage. It’s the second time
the “Dongcopter” — complete with its own Twitter account —
has harassed a New Mexico politician in recent days. Bernalillo
County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales III, who was not injured, brushed off
the brazen Tuesday night stunt as the work of “political
operatives.” The incident, which was partially captured on video,
happened as about seventy people gathered to hear the Democrat speak
at the Revel Entertainment Center. The venue’s owner confiscated a
drone attached to a sex toy that was flying over the stage while the
candidate spoke, and 20-year-old Kaelan Ashby Dreyer tried to get it
back. A scuffle ensued and Dreyer threw a punch at the sheriff’s
arm while reportedly yelling “he’s a tyrant.” The suspect was
arrested on charges of petty misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor
resisting, evading or obstructing an officer.
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by RadioSavings.com
Texas man has been fired from his job as the chief of technology and
innovation for a local school district after he was caught selling
district-owned iPads. According to News 4 San Antonio, the official
was caught when a local family answered a Facebook Marketplace ad and
purchased multiple iPads from him in a transaction that entailed
meeting him in a parking lot. Once the family's mother realized the
iPads were "a type marketed to schools," she searched the
man's name and discovered he worked for the school district. She
notified the TV station, which discovered a video of a school board
meeting in which the same man had recommended that the district spend
$483,000 on iPads and other equipment. (https://bit.ly/3uTZJkE)
