trunkA man and woman admit in court they drove from Arizona to Wyoming with two children in the trunk of their car.

Sixty-three-year-old Michael J. Fee and 31-year-old Amber L. Freudenstein each pleaded guilty Thursday to two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Circuit Judge Steven Brown sentenced each to 30 days in jail. Fee is from Peoria, Arizona, and Freudenstein is from Tempe, Arizona.

Sheriff’s officials say a third party told them the children reported riding in the trunk for much of the 900-mile drive while two German shepherds sat in the back seat.

Fee said in court there was not enough room for everyone so the children were relegated to the trunk. Court documents show the children are about 6 and 10 years old.

Kyle Stultz tells KTVA-TV he looked out the door and found nothing. He assumed it was kids playing “ding dong ditch.” Stultz decided to check his security camera.

The video showed a large moose backing its caboose right into the doorbell.

The fast food chain said the “Whopper Detour” promotion allows customers using the Burger King app to purchase a Whopper for a penny, provided they are ordering from within 600 feet of a McDonald’s.

The app will then reroute the customer to the nearest Burger King for their 1-cent Whopper.

deerA deer was caught on video running loose through a Norwood car dealership, where employees said it caused thousands of dollars of damage.

Workers at Central Jeep Chrysler Dodge RAM Fiat of Norwood said they sprung into action when they heard a loud noise and spotted a deer inside the building.

“I was like, ‘That’s a deer,’” employee Dwayne Girard told WFXT-TV. ”My friend thought it was a moose because it was so huge.”

Employees chased after the animal in an attempt to guide it back outside.

“I ran down one aisle,” Girard said. “Chased it down there, came up another aisle. I went and told Peter and everyone, ‘Rudolph was here shopping,’ but no one believed me.”

Girard said the deer was inside the business for about 20 minutes.

“Eventually I chased it and it went right out through the door,” Girard said. “We got it out safely, and then it was still okay when it left.”

The deer left behind an expensive mess.

vacatiionA Texas family’s Christmas display ended up the subject of a 911 call when a passerby thought a mannequin was in danger.

The Heerlein family said their Austin display, inspired by the film National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, includes a dummy version of Chevy Chase’s character, Clark Griswold, hanging from the roof in tribute to famous scene from the Christmas classic.

The family said they bought the dummy online and decked it out in a Chevy Chase mask and clothes like those the actor wore in the film.

A security camera outside the home was recording when a concerned passerby mistook the dummy for a real person in danger.

“Oh mister, please hold on!” the man says while trying to move a ladder that serves as part of the display.

The man was unable to reach the dummy, so he called 911 to report a person in danger.

Austin police quickly determined the person in danger was actually a dummy.

The Heerleins have now added a sign to their display: “Clark G is part of our Christmas display please do not call 911.”

walletA Pennsylvania man said he received an unexpected call from Hersheypark saying workers found the wallet he lost on a roller coaster four years ago.

Anson and his wife, Jen, said they would jokingly have their kids look for the wallet every time they returned to the park.

“It has become our running family joke,” Jen Anson told WHTM-TV. “We don’t go to Hersheypark and don’t mention the missing wallet.”

The couple said they were shocked when park officials called them recently to say a maintenance crew had found the wallet.

The family said the wallet still had all of its contents intact, but was a bit the worse for wear.

“It looked disgusting,” Abby Anson, 10, said of the wallet. “There was mold in it and the leather was all dusty.”

Jon Anson said the wallet still contained all of his credit cards and other items, including a book store gift card with a remaining $25 balance and a Starbucks gift card with $0.87 left on it.

“It restores your faith in humanity a little bit that things will be found…that people will turn something in and someone will follow through with their job and call you,” Jen Anson said.

knifeAccording to a Broward Sheriff’s Office complaint affidavit, Shanetta Yvette Wilson, 37, was in the checkout line at the Dollar General store on 120 S. Federal Hwy in Dania Beach on Sunday evening. John Walker, the customer standing next to her, got into a verbal dispute “in reference to the defendant farting loudly,” according to the affidavit.

Wilson allegedly pulled a small “lock back knife” from her purse, “opened the knife and told the victim she was going to ‘gut’ him,” the police report said

While doing so, she pulled back her right hand with the knife as if she was going to attack the victim with it, the report read.

Walker was “in fear that he was going to be stabbed by the defendant,” the affidavit read.

After police were called, Wilson was found by deputies in the area of 45 NW 5th Ave. and identified by Walker.

Wilson was arrested and taken to the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Pompano Beach. Her bail was set at $2,500.

deerSecurity cameras were recording at an Arkansas courthouse when a deer broke through a window and ran wild inside the building.

The footage shows the deer smash through a glass pane at the Cross County Courthouse in Wynne, causing employees and visitors to flee.

“It was a very scary time for us that were still here in the courthouse,” Debbie Davis, Cross County collector, told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “It broke through the real thick glass in front of my office and it made the horrible sound when it broke.”

Davis said Fish & Game officers were able to escort the deer outside.

“They actually let him loose through the the jail’s sallyport unharmed,” Davis said. “They just opened the door because that is where they had it trapped and guided it out. The doe did cut itself breaking through the glass, but I assume it wasn’t too bad or they wouldn’t have let it go.”
