Anyone who helped their neighbors dig out from the snowstorm this week definitely earned some brownie points. This woman isn't one of them.
On Tuesday, 61-year-old Barbara Davis was dealing with about two feet of snow outside her home in Arlington, Massachusetts, just outside Boston.
And it's not clear what prompted it, but she started fighting with a 60-year-old woman who lives next door. Apparently they have an ongoing hatred for each other . . . since the woman recently got a restraining order against Barbara.
And it looks like the judge who approved it made a good call . . . because Tuesday's argument ended with Barbara assaulting her with a SNOW BLOWER.
It's not clear if she hit her with it, blew snow at her, or both. But the neighbor ended up with cuts on her foot, so it sounds like Barbara rammed her with the BLADES.
She's being held on $35,000 bail, and is charged with mayhem, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and violating a restraining order.
I'm not sure I'll EVER get sick of idiots who brag about their crimes on Facebook, then get arrested as a result. Millennial criminals are the best.
22-year-old Eddie Smith of Mineral Wells, Texas posted a status update on Facebook back on the 20th. It said, quote, "So, I have 16 warrants out right now. Lol they know where I'm at tho so, it must not be TOO bad."
But one of his 'friends' saw the post and forwarded it to the COPS. And even if the warrants weren't bad, like Eddie said . . . bragging about them WAS. So the cops went to his house and arrested him that day.
It turns out he was wrong, by the way . . . he only had 14 warrants, for things ranging from an expired car inspection sticker to petty theft. He also owed about $1,200 in fines.
He couldn't pay the fines . . . and just got 51 days in jail.
This is one of the better excuses to drive in the carpool lane we've heard . . . and also the most fitting way possible for this guy to get caught.
26-year-old Luis Moreno Jr. of Elizabeth, New Jersey was pulled over on Friday because he was driving his SUV in the carpool lane . . . and a cop only saw HIM.
But it turns out there WERE two other people in the car. Two guys were in his backseat . . . because he'd KIDNAPPED them.
That's right . . . this guy used his two kidnapping victims as a rationale for using the carpool lane. And got CAUGHT kidnapping them BECAUSE he was in that lane.
The two kidnapping victims were a 24-year-old and 33-year-old, neither of whom spoke English.
The police think they're immigrants, and that Luis picked them up in Texas and demanded money when they got to Maryland. Then when the guys couldn't pay up, he took their phones, locked the doors, and kept driving.
Luis was arrested and charged with kidnapping, criminal restraint, and more. But hey . . . no fine for driving in the carpool lane, because he WAS doing that legally.
You know a mother would do ANYTHING to help her children . . . even if that "anything" is a felony that she didn't clear with him first.
53-year-old Lucia Evangelista of West Palm Beach, Florida felt bad for her son because his car was a serious financial burden on him. So when he was in Florida back in August, she saw her opportunity to help him out.
She took his car, drove it to a secluded spot . . . doused it in gasoline, and set it on FIRE.
Her son got back about three weeks later, and realized his car was missing. And eventually, he realized his MOM was the one who'd stolen it and torched it. He did NOT appreciate her "help" . . . and reported her to the cops.
The police investigated . . . and Lucia was arrested last Wednesday for felony arson.
Up until now, the classic face in selfies has been the DUCK FACE . . . if you don't know that term, it's where you pucker your lips like you're about to kiss someone and stick them out like a duck.
But the duck face is OUT. Today's selfies are all about the "surprise face."
In the surprise face, you open your eyes and mouth wide, like you just heard something shocking.
Why is the surprise face taking over? Because it's way more FLATTERING than the duck face.
With a surprise face, your eyes look bigger and better . . . your face doesn't wrinkle up like it does when you smile or make a duck face . . . your lips look fuller . . . and it elongates your face to make it look thinner.
If you've got outstanding warrants, you'd think your instinct would be to lay low. Unless you're this guy, in which case your instinct is the EXACT OPPOSITE.
40-year-old Brian Eades of Hueytown, Arkansas had an outstanding warrant for assault. The police weren't actively looking for him . . . until Tuesday, when they couldn't miss him.
That's because Brian was going door-to-door, trying to sell a tax service . . . and he was doing it in a GIANT CHICKEN SUIT. Who WOULDN'T want crucial accounting advice from a guy in a giant chicken suit?
A bunch of people called the cops because they suspected the guy in the chicken suit was scamming them . . . the police quickly tracked him down . . . and figured out it was Brian.
He was arrested on his outstanding assault warrant. Another guy he was going door-to-door with, 58-year-old Michael Bratton, ALSO had an outstanding warrant for drug possession . . . so he was arrested too.
Chalk this up as a victory for the local mom-and-pop hardware stores. Yeah, their prices might be a little higher and their selection is a little smaller, but at least they're not filled with DEADLY ANIMALS trying to KILL YOU.
A guy was shopping at a Lowe's in Corinth, Mississippi on Saturday afternoon and opened a cabinet that was on display.
A SNAKE popped out of the cabinet . . . and bit the guy on the HEAD.
He was taken to the hospital . . . there's no word on how he's doing.
The snake was a black rat snake . . . those are between three and five feet long, they can climb up wood, and fortunately for the guy, they're not venomous. They're still TERRIFYING based on the photo of one I'm looking at, though.
A Lowe's spokeswoman said she can't comment on what happened and they're investigating.
This is a terrible endorsement for this guy's bank robbery skills . . . but a hell of an endorsement for the deliciousness of chicken.
32-year-old Shane Lindsey robbed a bank in New Kensington, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, then took off running down the street.
The cops showed up right after he left and headed in the same direction. They stopped at a restaurant two blocks away called Eazer's Restaurant and Deli, since they saw it had surveillance cameras outside and might've gotten a shot of the guy.
But Eazer's had something way better. It had Shane HIMSELF.
It turns out he'd stopped during his getaway to eat some chicken and biscuits. And when the cops went into the restaurant, they saw a guy who matched the description of the bank robber perfectly . . . and realized it was him.
He was arrested about 20 minutes after robbing the bank.
There are websites out there now that let you anonymously send ANIMAL POOP to your enemies. This is an opposite . . . but potentially even MORE annoying . . . option.
This website lets you send your enemy an envelope full of GLITTER.
On the surface, that doesn't really sound awful . . . but when they open it, the theory is that the envelope is so overstuffed, glitter will spill everywhere. And that will be super annoying to clean up.
Plus, it might even get them in trouble at work . . . like their boss sees glitter and is all, "Johnson, what's with all the glitter? This is a business, not one of your hippie rave parties. See me in my office."
The glitter costs about $10 and ships anywhere in the world . . . but their website says they've temporarily suspended purchases. You can check for updates at ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com.
A woman in Melbourne, Australia just listed her husband's 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera 997 for $16,000. But it's worth at least three TIMES that much.
In fact, with its low mileage, it could be worth up to SIX times that. But she's not selling it for profit . . . she's selling it for REVENGE.
She listed it for sale after she caught her husband cheating on her after 25 years of marriage... she followed him to his "guys' poker night" and found out he was really going to a restaurant with a young blonde.
She says the Porsche is in her name, so she's selling it for $16,000 . . . quote, "just enough for a flight [and] accommodations in Europe so I can fondle with all the wealthy European men."
She posted the ad three days ago, and found a buyer almost immediately.
Even the people who SELL Yahtzee probably aren't THIS passionate about it.
40-year-old Brian Cutshall of Mayville, North Dakota and his wife were playing some DRUNK YAHTZEE a few weeks ago . . . he was drinking a 40, she was drinking Boone's Farm. Nice.
Somehow the game got heated, and Brian and his wife got into a physical fight. When their nine-year-old heard them yelling, he headed downstairs to see what was going on.
And Brian told his son to call 911 . . . or he'd KILL him.
The kid called 911 . . . and when the cops got there, they couldn't figure out who started the drunk Yahtzee fight, Brian or his wife. But they DID confirm that Brian threatened to kill his son unless he called 911.
So Brian was arrested and hit with one felony charge of terrorizing.
Now that men are moisturizing and waxing, I guess it's only fair that women do THIS.
Apparently the latest beauty trend for women is . . . SHAVING YOUR FACE. Yeah, with a razor and shaving cream and everything.
It's because it's a great way to exfoliate your skin. One of the reasons men usually develop fewer wrinkles than women is all the shaving . . . by removing your outermost layer of skin, it keeps your skin fresh.
So no, it's NOT to remove facial hair. In fact, if you DO have a sexy lady beard or thick lady mustache, beauty experts say you SHOULDN'T shave it because the thick, coarse hair that grows back may look darker and thicker. It's not, but it might LOOK that way.
Alexis Wolfer is the editor of a women's website called the Beauty Bean. She says female face shaving, quote, "is definitely getting more mainstream" . . . but it's not totally common yet.
Companies are even selling face razors specifically for women on Amazon . . . if you search for "women face razor" you'll find at least three or four choices.
I guess you have to be a little "off" to spend all your time selling reptiles . . . and this guy definitely qualifies as being "off."
40-year-old Benjamin Siegel owns a store called Ben Siegel Reptiles Inc. in Deerfield Beach, Florida . . . and on Friday, he started going a little nuts.
He picked up a bearded dragon . . . which is a pretty big lizard . . . and put it in his mouth. Then he threw it in the air, swung it around a few times . . . and started SLAPPING his employees with it.
Benjamin was arrested and charged with battery and cruelty to animals.
And this is the second time Ben Siegel Reptiles has been in the news for the wrong reasons. Back in October of 2012, a guy DIED after eating more than 30 cockroaches and 100 millipedes at the store's insect eating contest.
The guy died from asphyxiation after cockroach parts blocked his airways. He'd signed a liability waiver before the contest so, as far as we know, his family didn't have a case against the store.
It takes about ten days to change your sleep schedule. Meaning that if you wake up at the same time for ten days straight, your body will start doing it naturally . . . as long as you get enough sleep. Here are three tricks that can help.
1. Set a nighttime alarm. Meaning an alarm to remind you it's almost time for bed. According to one expert, if you need to get in bed by 11, an alarm reminding you at 10:30 will make you more likely to actually DO it.
2. Try a computer program called "Flux". It's available for PC's and Macs, and automatically dims your screen at night. You probably know this by now, but staring at a bright screen tricks your body into thinking the sun is still up, so you don't feel tired.
3. Get some ACTUAL sun as soon as you wake up. Sitting in the sun for just 10 or 15 minutes can help wake you up. And it also resets your internal clock, so you're more likely to feel tired later that night.
