horseAn Idaho rancher showed off an unusual method he devised of transporting his horse — in a homemade motorcycle side car.

A video filmed on a road in Shoshone shows Casey Perkins riding his motorcycle while his horse rides next to him in a homemade side car.

The video’s filmer, Perkins’ wife, said he made the horse side car himself.

“My husband started this whole deal a little over a year ago when he decided to modify the family van and hauled his horse in it,” she wrote. “That inspired his next invention of hauling the horse in the side car of a motorcycle!”  Source

Arkansas thief tried paying waitress with her own stolen credit card

cardAn Arkansas waitress was stunned to receive her very own credit card from a customer after her purse was stolen two days prior.

Flora Lunsford, who works at Shannon’s Restaurant in Pine Bluff, was ready to run the bill for Shamon West after his meal on Wednesday when she spotted her own name on the card he gave her, Arkansas Onlinereports.

Reportedly “having no desire to pay for the fellow’s meal,” the 58-year-old woman instead phoned the police, who arrested the 21-year-old on the spot. Authorities soon found that West also possessed Lunsford’s driver’s license, social security card and other credit cards, Fox 59 reports.

The trouble initially began on June 16, when Lunsford’s car was broken into at the United Filling Station, two blocks away from Shannon’s Restaurant, KATV reports.

While Lunsford was inside the gas station’s store, surveillance footage later detailed a suspect breaking into her vehicle, stealing her purse, and getting back into his own car. Authorities say the suspect proceeded to drive to the side of the gas station and pick up a man who had shoplifted a drink. Together, the pair drove away.

It is not immediately clear at this time if and what role West played in the theft.

Arrested on charges of forgery, theft by receiving, and three adddinal outstanding warrants, West was booked into Jefferson County Jail.   Source

suspectPolice say a quick-thinking bank teller in Ohio convinced a suspected robber to hand over his own license.

Authorities say the man walked into a Huntington Bank in Columbus on June 4 and gave the teller a note saying he was armed and demanding money.

The teller gave the man a stack of cash, but then he demanded more money from the electronic cash recycle machine in the bank’s lobby.

Police say the teller told the man the machine needed a driver’s license to dispense cash, so the man handed his own license over.

The license led police to the 51-year-old man who was arrested June 15 and charged with aggravated robbery and threatening with a deadly weapon.  Source
