A motorist who has a Tesla logo tattooed on his face was driving a 1992 minivan when he was arrested Friday on a felony DUI count and multiple vehicular charges. 25-year-old Jordan Lindsey was behind the wheel of a GMC Safari that crashed Thursday evening on Route 83 in Elmhurst, a city 20 miles west of Chicago. A Circuit Court complaint describes the 10:00 p.m. accident as a “single vehicle roll-over.” Lindsey was arrested on a felony aggravated DUI count since he was driving with a suspended license due to a previous drunk driving conviction. He was also charged with driving an uninsured vehicle, driving an unregistered vehicle, failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash, and driving with a suspended license. Lindsey was booked into the DuPage County jail, from which he was later released on bond. He is scheduled for a December 20th court appearance. The Wisconsin native, who lives a few miles outside Elmhurst, has a pending misdemeanor disorderly conduct case and a rap sheet with a multitude of vehicular convictions. (

Did you know 25,000 children are injured by shopping carts each year? According to Wikipedia one of the first shopping carts was introduced on June 4, 1937, the invention of Sylvan Goldman, owner of the Humpty Dumpty supermarket chain in Oklahoma. One night, in 1936, Goldman sat in his office wondering how customers might move more groceries. He found a wooden folding chair and put a basket on the seat and wheels on the legs. Goldman and one of his employees, a mechanic named Fred Young, began tinkering. Their first shopping cart was a metal frame that held two wire baskets. Since they were inspired by the folding chair, Goldman called his carts “folding basket carriers”.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

You've heard variations of this one before: A person steals money to fuel a gambling addiction. What's unusual in the case of Rachel Naomi Perri is that she blew the hundreds of thousands of dollars she admitted to stealing from her employer on a gambling app that doesn't pay out any money. Australia's ABC reports the Tasmanian woman appeared in court Monday on a slew of fraud charges, most tied to the money taken from the Tasmanian Veterinary Hospital over a 40-month period beginning in 2016. Crown prosecutor Simone Wilson said Perri was the only person who oversaw the vet's accounts and transferred money into bank accounts, credit cards, and personal loans in her name via what Gambling News reports amounted to 475 transactions. Per Wilson, when confronted by police in late 2019, Perri admitted taking the money and spending it all on the Heart of Vegas app, which bills itself as featuring "real Vegas slot machines just like the ones you know and love." Players can purchase virtual coins with which to play the game, but "regardless of the terminology used, virtual items may never be redeemed for 'real world' money" the terms and conditions explained. "She couldn't explain why she was playing that game when there was no return," Wilson said of Perri. Her lawyer simply said the game's point was to "keep playing the game," and that she became so addicted she would play it upon waking and "set it up at night so it played in auto." She will be sentenced in December. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A man is in police custody after allegedly bragging about getting away with evading arrest — he even made a t-shirt showing a "flyer" from police asking for more information on solving the case he was involved in. On October 26th, Pottsville police were able to recover a stolen motorcycle only after the armed suspect was able to run across Interstate 40 and into the woods, fleeing from police. Donald Cooper was arrested on November 18th after reportedly running away from "another department," the Pottsville Police Department said in a post on Facebook. "Sometimes it may be best to keep your accomplishments to yourself and not brag about them or even try to make your own merchandise about the incident," the department also said in the post. In a photo attached to the post, there is a black t-shirt with an "UPDATE" that states that more information is needed on a "CRIMINAL MASTERMIND" along with a photo of the motorcycle Cooper reportedly stole the day he ran from police. Pottsville police thanked Cooper for his help in solving the case "because without his help we would not have been able to solve this case and put this 'CRIMINAL MASTERMIND' behind bars." (
