A go-kart driver and other cars were pulled over in Sherman Oaks following a stunt on the 101 Freeway that a group of self-described “YouTubers” were filming early Wednesday, according to the California Highway Patrol. Sgt. Geraty was patrolling the freeway around 2 a.m. when traffic abruptly slowed down. He then saw the small vehicle driving in the slow lane, surrounded by two cars — one in front and one behind, according to the CHP’s West Valley Division. They all exited the 101 at Woodman Avenue, leading the sergeant to conclude the cars were escorting the go-kart. Geraty pulled the three vehicles over and spoke with the group, who admitted it was a stunt for the online video platform, authorities said. The go-kart driver was cited for unlawful operation/impeding driver, while an individual driving one of the cars was issued a citation for being a minor and driving outside of his driver’s license provisions, according to CHP. “Where do we begin with how incredibly dangerous, stupid and illegal this was,” CHP officials said in the Facebook post. “Absolutely zero social media content is worth putting your life or others in danger.”

Cats once delivered mail in Belgium. In the 1870s, the city of Li├Ęge, Belgium, attempted to employ 37 felines as mail carriers, according to the BBC. Messages were tucked into waterproof bags that the kitties would carry around their necks. However, while one cat apparently made it to its destination in under five hours, the other felines took up to a day to complete their journeys. Due to the fact that the cats weren't particularly reliable and definitely weren't speedy, the service didn't last very long. PRESENTS... A NEWS HEADLINE... FROM SOMEWHERE IN THIS WORLD!

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

On December 19, the Knoxville Police Department responded to a call of an intruder inside Daphne Crowley’s apartment. Crowley said she was returning home that day, waiting for her daughter to answer the door. The mother said once her daughter opened the door, they realized a stranger was inside their home wearing nothing but a brand new pair of shoes that belonged to her daughter. Crowley said she told her daughter to call the police, while she went after the intruder. “I chased him with these sticks cause had I got a hold of him, I would have beat him. But he ran down the street into this pathway,” shared Crowley. Once KPD officers arrived on the scene, they were able to find and arrest wanted sex offender 27-year-old Michael Tyler Henegar in a wooded area near Crowley’s apartment. Officials reported finding several of Crowley’s belongings, including a Scooby-Doo handbag, and an impact drill. Crowley said she’s glad Henegar was caught, and she plans to get an alarm system installed soon. She believed Henegar came in through the patio door, that her grandchild left unlocked. Until she gets the alarm system, Crowley has her sofa blocking the patio door entrance to her apartment. “I’m calm now, but at the time I was literally shaking and cried because it’s scary. You think these people are in your house and they are sex offenders and you have your kids running around and you’re thinking you’re safe,” said Crowley. KPD reported Henegar was convicted of sexual exploitation of a 14-year-old girl by electronic means in 2014, and has a history of numerous violations for not registering as a sex offender.
