Indiana police recently arrested Pikachu! A 19 year old man, in a Pikachu costume, was  stopped for recklessly driving  – a lawnmower – on city streets. Pikachu flipped off a deputy after the deputy tried to stop him. Cops pursued the lawnmower for several blocks and then arrested Pikachu at his home. Pikachu wasn’t high or drunk – he was just 19. Police Facebooked; “At this time, we believe Pikachu acted alone and no other Pokemon characters were involved in this incident. However, we are not opposed to catching them all…”

A bunch of kids in El Paso, Texas have to retake their S.A.T. tests after their tests got lost in transit.  They took them last month, but their tests flew off a UPS truck and got scattered all over the road.  55 test sheets haven’t been found. And I’m sure those 55 kids are less than happy!

A woman called 911, because she doesn’t know how pork works. Her pork had a slight pink tinge to it. The place is Clyde Cooper’s, in Raleigh, North Carolina, and pork is kind of their specialty. They’ve won a bunch of awards and have been around since 1938.  She’d said her pork was undercooked.  But the owner said it was perfect – that’s what pork looks like after it’s smoked.  She didn’t believe them, called 911, and turned it into a big thing. She says they wouldn’t give her a refund, or exchange it for chicken instead. They say they DID offer to replace it, but she refused.  They even tossed in a free piece of chicken. Cops showed up and told her there was nothing they could do. She left a one-star review on Google, but deleted it later, says she’s considering a lawsuit. Over PORK!  

And, two shoplifters stole stuff from a Ross Dress for Less store in Missouri on Saturday, and fled in two different cars.  But in their rush to get away, they crashed into each other at a nearby intersection.  Both Cooter AND Cletus were arrested.
