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.”

Wallet lost on roller coaster turns up four years later

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.

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.”

Police: Ohio man claims bathroom emergency is why he ran from officers

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.
