Customer, Early for Lunch, Fires Shots in McDonald's
Police said a customer fired one or two shots into a Salt Lake City McDonald's after the driver of the car he was in was told the restaurant was not serving lunch yet.
Police said the female driver of a white Dodge Intrepid pulled up to the drive-thru and ordered from the lunch menu early Sunday but was told only breakfast was available.
Police said two men then got out of the car and one pulled a sawed-off shotgun from the trunk, shooting into the drive-thru window once or twice. No one was injured.
I tell you it’s the apples
A Polish MP who failed a drink-driving test said he had eaten too many apples, the website of daily Gazeta Wyborcza said today.
Asked why a traffic police check yesterday showed he had 0.7 units of alcohol in his blood, Marek Latas denied having drunk alcohol that day.
"I am diabetic, I ate a few apples before driving.
"I have been involved in no accident, I underwent a routine roadside check. I was confident there was no chance I had alcohol in my blood," said Latas.
The prosecutor's office is investigating his case, the website said. In Poland, the legal limit for alcohol when driving is 0.2 units. Fermented apple juice can be used to make cider, a low alcoholic drink.
Worst job application ever?
A student applied for a job at a Welsh tourist attraction using the email address 'atleastimnotwelsh'.
James Kettle, 21, also sent his job request to the wrong address, reports The Sun.
The horticulture undergraduate sent it to Aberglasney Gardens, Carmarthenshire, instead of the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
A manager at Aberglasney replied: "It may be prudent to change your email address. It could have a detrimental effect on any career aspirations of working in Wales."
James, a student at Pershore Agricultural College in Warwickshire, said: "I feel a right fool."
I set up the email at school because several Welsh kids were in my year. I forgot it was with my application and didn't mean to be offensive."
'Dumbest criminal in Pennsylvania' arrested
A retired police chief says he was robbed by probably the dumbest criminal in Pennsylvania. It happened Friday morning at police officers' convention near Harrisburg PA., where 300 narcotics officers from Pennsylvania and Ohio were gathered. John Comparetto says as he came out of a stall in the men's room, a man pointed a gun at his face and demanded money. Comparetto gave up his money and cellphone.
But when the man fled, Comparetto and some colleagues chased him.
They arrested 19-year-old Jerome Marquis Blanchett of Harrisburg as he was trying to leave in a taxi.
