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.

chickenA New York state police department shared body camera footage of an officer rushing into a burning shed to rescue a chicken.

The Ossining Police Department said Officer McGovern responded Saturday to a fire at a shed adjacent to a residential property in the city.

McGovern removed two propane tanks from the shed before rushing back inside to rescue a chicken in danger of becoming roasted.

“I got your chicken,” McGovern tells the owner in the video.

“Now, it’s not that we don’t love chickens,” the police department wrote. “They’re just fine and certainly deserve our assistance. It’s just that, if you ever wanted to get a hard time from your coworkers, be a hero… to a chicken.”

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.”

bathroomAustintown police said they arrested two people early Monday morning after a short car chase and struggle with officers.

Officers said they found a running car sitting in the middle of the road on First Street just after 4 a.m. on Monday.

When the police cruiser turned onto First Street, officers said the car sped off, causing the front tires to spin out of control.

Police said they followed the car to the 200 block of First St., where the driver — 23-year-old Logan Daugherty, of Leetonia – ran out of the car and into a house. Officers ordered him to stop but he shut the front door behind him, according to a police report.

There were a handful of people sitting on the porch and officers ordered them off “for everyone’s safety,” according to the report.

Police said 27-year-old Alyssa Zebrasky, of Canfield, told them, “I am not moving. You’re gonna have to get me.” She insisted Daugherty did nothing wrong, police said.

Officers ordered her to come off of the porch several times before she finally started walking toward them.

Police said she then told them, “I have a knife on me, what are you going to do about that?”

They handcuffed her and said she started crying while kicking and pulling away from them. She is facing a charge of obstructing official business.

Police found Daughtery inside the house, where he was arrested.

When police asked him why he ran, he told them he “had to go to the bathroom,” according to the report.

Police said they found two guns and three knives on the driver’s seat of the car, as well as a rifle in the trunk.

Daugherty is facing charges of failure to comply and obstructing official business.

Jordan Mountain, who was inside the house, was also arrested on a warrant out of Newton Falls.

roofA resident of San Diego’s Shelltown community got a bizarre surprise when he arrived home Saturday morning: a stranger had climbed onto his roof, refusing to come down.

“I asked him, ‘Hey, what are you doing on my roof?’ He was a random stranger, so I called the cops,” said Augustine Perez.

San Diego Police Department (SDPD) officers and San Diego-Fire Rescue Department firefighters arrived at the home on 41st and Beta streets at 9:30 a.m. to find the man still on the roof. Police said the man was on drugs but did not release further details.

Firefighters and officers placed a ladder on the building and told the man to carefully come down. He paced on the roof for a while.Perez said the man eventually pulled the ladder onto the roof and then used it as a bridge so he could walk from rooftop to rooftop of different homes.

“He was literally running on top of other neighbors’ roofs,” Perez recounted.

The man wasn’t saying a word, just running, Perez said, while officers continued to tell him to come down.

A short time later, the man jumped off the roof and officers were able to arrest him without incident.

No one was hurt. Perez said the incident was definitely memorable

atmAn ATM was taken out of service in Houston after customers reported it was distributing $100 bills instead of $20 bills.

Police said fights broke out at the ATM before deputies arrived to calm the scene and stop customers from exploiting the apparent glitch.

The ATM remained out of service Monday while the bank investigated. It was unclear how many $100 bills had been mistakenly distributed and whether customers who took them had committed a crime.

elephant2Xu Hongwei, owner of the inn in Yunnan Province and a member of the local elephant patrol team, said he warned guests at this business to remain on the second floor when the animal wandered inside about 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

The elephant spent about four hours feasting on corn, oranges and other food stored inside the inn, Xu said.

Xu said locals, who are familiar with the elephant from previous incidents where the wild animal wandered near to homes in search of food, controlled traffic outside the inn to allow the elephant to safely leave on its own.

There were no injuries to elephant or human during the visit, but the pachyderm left a big mess behind at the inn, Xu said.
