I was close to having it


WWE Body Slam at NJ Acme Supermarket

Police in South Jersey are searching for a man who randomly attacked a shopper earlier this week at an Acme supermarket in Millville, NJ. The brutal attack was caught on store surveillance tape.
The victim's wife, Leslie Ritchie, describes the attack:
"He just came up from behind him, and it was like WWE (a wrestling organization). He picked him up and flipped him over, and his feet were in the air. He landed head first and then down on his back."
Bill Ritchie is recovering at Cooper University Hospital with numerous injuries, including a cracked skull, cracked vertebra and a ruptured spleen:
"I'm upset that I'm going to be out of work for three months 'cause some guy grabbed me and threw me. I'm sick over it."
Police say that after the assault, which took place last Sunday, the suspect finished his shopping, paid for his pre-cooked ham and then calmly walked out of the store.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To play chicken with drivers on busy road
The well-fed black hen has taken up residence behind the electronic billboard at Glendale Community College for at least two months.
The chicken has dodged animal control officers several times by attempting risky flight maneuvers into traffic at Verdugo Road and Mountain Street.
The brazen bird was walking into the intersection, forcing cars to swerve around it.
Startled by traffic, the chicken quickly turned around and went back to the sidewalk.
Ricky Whitman, spokeswoman for the Pasadena Humane Society, says the chicken is creating dangerous traffic conditions for drivers.
Animal control officials say without the extra food, the bird would become weak enough for them to catch it.
They say tranquilizers are out of the question because the chicken is too small.

Hayley the working dog

It's the slow time of year for the construction business in Mankato, Minnesota, but when your public relations representative is a Golden Retriever named Hayley; jobs for DeMars Construction in Mankato seem to come a little easier.
Hayley is able to climb up a ladder as well as any other on the team. "She's one of the guys, part of the crew," said owner Max DeMars. And like the crew, Hayley too can handle a two-by-four.
Since she was a pup, Hayley, now 10 years old, follows the crew wherever they go.
After hundreds of jobs over the years, she's got a pretty good handle on climbing up the ladder, even when nobody else is up on the roof.
One cold January day her solo trip nearly got her in some hot water.
The crew was working on an addition for the Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mankato when a neighbor spotted her on top of the building.
The neighbor called police and a short time later an officer arrived.
"The police officer came up and wanted to take her to the pound 'cause he thought it was just a stray dog," laughed DeMars.
It took a bit of convincing, but Hayley showed the officer her trick and she was off the hook.
The construction dog has been back at it ever since, as she will likely help secure another gig with the kind of rooftop advertising she helped to bring this time around.

Copper wire vandal saws power pole down
A vandal used a handsaw to cut down a power pole near Crockett, apparently in hopes of stealing copper wiring, authorities said today.
The vandalism was discovered about 12:15 a.m. when Pacific Gas and Electric Co. crews, the California Highway Patrol and East Bay Regional Park District police officers responded to reports of the downed pole on San Pablo Avenue at Cummings Skyway.
The pole had been sawed and wires were all over the road, said PG&E spokesman Blair Jones.
In October, a man suffered serious burns when he shimmied up a pole and tried to cut copper wires in the same area, and another man was hurt about a year and a half ago in Port Costa, Jones said."Anyone who engages in this kind of activity should understand the consequences," Jones said. "Not only is it illegal, it can also cause serious injuries and/or death.

Dentist's drill bit left behind for 11 months.

Donna Delgado from Tampa, Florida just wasn't healing properly after dental surgery.
There was too much bleeding, too much pain. Her head hurt. She was dizzy. She had nosebleeds and sinus infections.
And with good reason, according to her lawsuit: The surgeon left an inch-long piece of steel in the wound.
She wound up in a hospital, where the medical staff detected the foreign object. She was referred to another hospital for surgery.
"The poor thing," said the lawyer, Anthony Martino. "You don't know how horrible it's been for her."
According to the lawsuit, which asks for unspecified damages and a jury trial, Delgado was experiencing dizziness and numbness on her right side, where the burr was.
Concerned about the numbness, she was taken for emergency treatment at St. Joseph's Hospital.
Not knowing about the burr, doctors performed a magnetic scan that caused the object to move inside her head, Martino said.
"She was in excruciating pain," he said, adding that the shifting of the burr could have killed her.
Doctors debated whether it would be safe to remove the object, but Dr. Dennis Agliano, an ear-nose-and-throat specialist, said it must come out. He removed it.

Mechanic test driving a Porsche going at 163 mph crashes

Routine maintenance on a 2008 Porsche Boxster took an unusual turn Thursday, when a Sanibel mechanic took the car on a wild test drive, reaching an estimated 163 mph, and crashed it.

Australia bans small breasts
The Australian Sex Party (ASP) said that the Australian Classification Board (ACB) is now banning depictions of small-breasted women in adult publications and films. It comes just a week after it was found that material with depictions of females ejaculating during orgasm are now Refused Classification and Australian Customs directed to confiscate it.
ASP’s Fiona Patten writes on her party’s website that they are starting to see depictions of women in their late 20s being banned because they have an A cup breast size.
Even if you are 18 years old but you look younger, taking a photograph of your breasts and uploading it to the Internet could land you or someone you know in serious trouble.
Keep in mind it’s highly unlikely that a naked photograph of a 30, 40 or 50 year old woman with small breasts would ‘appear’ to be child pornography on the basis of her breast size alone. Small breasts do not automatically mean something will be banned or is illegal.
U.S. Child Porn Distributor Arrested
A South Boston man was charged Friday in what prosecutors say could be one of the largest child pornography distribution cases in the world.
Police said they found 16,000 files of child pornography on George Shipps' seized computer. One piece of evidence recovered is 75-minute video, sexual in nature, showing girls as young as 5 and 6-years-old, officials said.
His computer system was identified as one of the "largest distributing child porn in the world in the last few months," according assistant Attorney General Chris Kelly. Investigators said Shipps allowed the material to be accessed through a peer-to-peer online network.
Thieves break through walls to steal from library
Philadelphia, Police say thieves busted through walls to steal six computers from a library in a poor Philadelphia neighborhood.
Library staff noticed the thefts from the Cecil B. Moore branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia on Tuesday morning.
Officials say the thieves used an abandoned building next door to launch their attack. They used heavy construction tools to break through a brick wall and another wall to get inside.
Library officials say they lost six PCs and eight flat-screen monitors, plus accessories.
Branch manager Aurora Deshauteurs says the computers were used by children for homework and residents applying for jobs.
Because of budget cuts Deshauteurs doesn't know when the computers will be replaced.
Pelvic Exams Being Done Without Consent
Imagine that you are undergoing a fairly routine surgery – say, removal of uterine fibroids or hysterectomy. During or right after the procedure, while you are still under anesthesia, a group of medical students parades into the operating room and they perform gynecological exams (unrelated to the surgery) without your knowledge.
Do you consider this okay, or an outrageous violation of your rights?
Regardless of your feelings, you should be aware that this is standard procedure in many Canadian teaching hospitals.
Medical students routinely practice doing internal pelvic examinations while surgery patients are unconscious, and without getting specific consent, at least in Canada.
Boyfriend in Rage
Mark Vaughan, 27, emptied Kathryn Leigh's wardrobe of gear worth £6,000 - plus 45 pairs of shoes - after seeing her kiss another man.

Man Accused of Burning Puppy in Front of Kids
Police say a Philadelphia man poured rubbing alcohol on his family's puppy and set it on fire in front of his children.
Police and animal welfare officials say 33-year-old John Fleet was arrested Friday after his children told a school counselor about the incident. He has been charged with animal cruelty.
George Bengal of the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says the children reported their father became enraged Thursday night when the dog nipped at them.
Bengal says the 5-month-old pit bull mix was badly burned, with charring on its neck and ears. He says the dog might lose sight in one eye.
Fleet told investigators the dog was burned accidentally.
11 Year Old Accused Of Shooting Dog
He's accused of stealing a rifle from one neighbor and then using it to shoot another neighbor's dog.
Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Department was called to investigate the shooting of a German Sheppard on Monday.
The dog's owner told deputies he heard a gunshot and went to investigate.
He found his dog on the front porch bleeding with a wound to the neck.
Investigators spent the day talking with other neighbors, some who say they heard the shot, while animal control officers rushed the dog to a nearby veterinarian clinic.
Later that evening, one of the neighbors who had said she had heard the gunshot, called the Sheriff's Department to report finding a rifle in her backyard.
When deputies arrived she told them she had already questioned her eleven year old son who admitted to her he shot the dog because it had been keeping him awake at night.
Woman sues Metra after toilet explodes on train
A woman is suing Metra after the contents of a toilet allegedly "exploded" and splattered her as she rode a Joliet-bound train.
Julianna Mandernach filed the suit in Cook County Circuit Court against the Northeast Illinois Regional Commuter Railroad Corp. and Metra, claiming the Jan. 29, 2009, incident left her with injuries of a “personal and pecuniary nature.”
Mandernach boarded a Metra train on the Chicago-to-Joliet/Rock Island line as a passenger, the suit claims. She used a toilet on the train, and upon flushing, the contents exploded out of the toilet and "splattered" her.
The suit claims Metra permitted Mandernach and other passengers to use the toilet when they should have known it was not working properly. Metra should have repaired and replace the toilet, and also failed to barricade, rope or block off the toilet from public use.
The suit seeks unspecified damages, as well as costs of the suit.

Cucumber Abuse

At first glance, it looks like a cartoon character. But a closer look reveals something much more revealing. A billboard along Interstate-35 in Lancaster is packing quite a sexual punch and some North Texans aren't amused.
The billboard was put up by the companies Condoms to Go and Sara's Secret. Both stores feature adult toys, lingerie and movies.
It features a cucumber with cartoon eyes and a mouth. The billboard reads "stop vegetable abuse."
The locally-owned adult stores are asking potential customers to consider alternative adult devices.
Employees of the stores say they've received several complaints since the billboard went up last week.

She thinks she's a werewolf

Wolfie Blackheart is not an ordinary 18-year-old. She believes she is a wolf — technically, a werewolf — and so she wears a tail. She also wears a harness in case someone special wants to drag her around. Last week, she used a pocketknife in her kitchen to decapitate a dog — already dead, according to Wolfie — that had been missing since Jan. 5.

Man guilty of indecency, told to destroy shorts
A man has been ordered to destroy his skimpy work shorts after exposing himself to eight women while performing renovations on their kitchens, a court has been told.
Prosecutor Lewis Shillito told the court Owen wore skimpy shorts or stripped down to his underwear while he worked, allowing what the women described as an "extremely large" penis to poke out from the fabric.
The court was told Owen would also masturbate in front of the women, aged between 45 and 83, and rub cream onto his exposed genitals while complaining of a rash.
Magistrate Noel Nunan ordered Owen's work shorts, which were seized by police, be destroyed.
He also refused Owen's request for the return of penis rings he had worn to work to enlarge his genitals.

German gecko smuggler gets sentenced to 12 weeks

A German man who tried to smuggle 44 live geckos and skinks out of New Zealand in his underwear has been sentenced to 12 weeks in jail.
The Christchurch court heard Hans Kurt Kubus, 58, had sewn pouches into his clothing to hide the protected animals as he had gone through the airport.
Officials said the lizards could have sold for up to $2,000 (£1,239)each.
Kubus had pleaded guilty to capturing the animals, but said they were for his own collection and not for sale.
District court judge Colin Doherty told him he had knowingly "plundered part of the wildlife" of New Zealand.
"I don't think you necessarily came here to steal to sell, but I am sure the fact that you might have had excess was figured into your thinking," the Associated Press quoted Mr Doherty as saying.
Kubus had eight separate pockets sewn into his underwear, separating the different species he had collected, with room for 24 geckos and 20 skinks.
Department of Conservation prosecutor Mike Bodie said it was "the most serious case of its kind detected in New Zealand for a decade or more".
"It's similar to stealing our family silver," he told the Press newspaper.
Kubus was also fined NZ $5,000 ($3,500; £2,190) and will be deported to Germany on his release.

He said he was not aware of any other Tesco stores having to put up similar signs.
The signs are placed at the entrance to the store at the suburb on the city's outskirts.

Cross-dresser escapes rape attempt
The suspect was riding a bicycle when he started stalking a 17-year-old that was walking.
The teen began to walk faster, but the man caught up to him, grabbed his arm and dragged him into some nearby woods.
The attacker started to take off the teen's clothes, tearing his shirt and yanking off his boots; he realized when he stripped off the teen's pants that the victim was male, too, police said.
The victim fought back, but his attacker kicked him repeatedly, police said.
The man ran when the victim's cell phone rang, but by then witnesses on Bray Street had called 911, police said.
The victim crawled from the woods and was sitting on the ground, crying in the rain, when police arrived.
The teenager only could describe his attacker as a fat Hispanic man who wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants, according to police.
The attacker will be charged with criminal attempted rape and false imprisonment if he's found, police said.
"It doesn't matter that (the victim) wasn't a female," Athens-Clarke Capt. Clarence Holeman said. "The suspect's intent was to commit rape."

A 16-year-old girl who was raped in Bangladesh has been given 101 lashes for conceiving during the assault.
The girl's father was also fined and warned the family would be branded outcasts from their village if he did not pay.
According to human rights activists, the girl, who was quickly married after the attack, was divorced weeks later after medical tests revealed she was pregnant.
The girl was raped by a 20-year-old villager in Brahmanbaria district she was so ashamed following the attack that she did not lodge a complaint.
Her rape emerged after her pregnancy test and Muslim elders in the village issued a fatwa insisting that the girl be kept in isolation until her family agreed to corporal punishment.
Her rapist was pardoned by the elders. She told the newspaper the rapist had "spoiled" her life.
"I want justice," she said.
Enjoy your "Dancing"
School Outlaws "Sexual Bending"
Like many educators nationwide, administrators at a Wisconsin high school are aiming to curb risqué moves at an upcoming school dance. To assure that Union Grove High School students do not get too footloose, school brass has issued official dance rules for the January 30 winter formal. The rules outlaw "sexual bending" and the touching of breasts, buttocks, or genitals. Leg straddling is also verboten. Additionally, students are on notice that "Both feet must remain on the dance floor at all times." This rules out performances of the Charleston, Electric Slide, and Cha-Cha. The dance "will be videotaped to insure the safety of all students attending," the rules note, though Union Grove administrators could presumably review the film for provocative moves that were initially missed by monitors.

Not the Brightest….

Gye Gardner didn't think he would be the next to make the funniest mishap of the week.
When Mr. Gardner heard about a Darwin woman who made headlines for getting pulled over by police for a breath test wearing little but her undies, the 43-year-old had a big laugh - but wasn't expecting he would be next in line to make the paper for a mishap.
"I hit my ear on the boom of my truck and broke the headset of my phone," Mr. Gardner said.
"So I got some superglue and glued it back together - and that was ... when my boss rang."
The truck driver said he usually had the phone's headset in his ear most of the day.
"I guess I didn't think much of it when I put it back into my ear to talk to the boss.
I realized I had done something kind of stupid after having the headset in his ear for more than five minutes the adhesive had hardened - and Mr. Gardner found himself with a earpiece glued into his ear.
"Usually it's in my ear all day anyway - friends suggested to leave it in there and just plug my ear into the PowerPoint at night to charge it. But I did get a little worried and thought 'This is not good, this is really not good at all'."
Mr. Gardner said, “It crossed his mind to use his pocket knife to remove the unwanted gear from his ear.”
"I realized I didn't want to see myself going to a doctor to put my ear back on after I chopped it off.
The 43-year-old said he scraped the earpiece out of his ear with a spoon but several pieces of skin were still stuck to the headphones."Yes, it did hurt - but I guess I did hurt my pride much more than it did hurt my ear.

An Ipswich man has admitted downloading graphic cartoon porn images featuring child characters from The Simpsons and The Powerpuff Girls TV shows.
The 28-year-old is now a registered sex offender and will have to report to police after pleading guilty in Ipswich District Court to having the bizarre images on his computer.

But an hour-and-a-half later he phoned police and said they could now have his computer.
Officers discovered the computer would no longer turn on but a year later police forensic experts recovered 64 images of cartoon child exploitation material in the machine’s recycle bin.
The images depicted figures from The Simpsons, The Powerpuff Girls and The Incredibles in sexually explicit positions.

McDonald's wrong “It was just a slice of cheese”
A McDonald's outlet in the Netherlands was wrong to sack an employee for giving a colleague a piece of cheese on a hamburger, a court has ruled.
The waitress was fired last March after she sold a hamburger to a co-worker who then asked for cheese, which she added.
The fast-food chain argued this turned the hamburger into a cheeseburger, and so she should have charged more.
But Leeuwarden district court ruled a written warning would have been more appropriate.
McDonald's was ordered to pay the former employee more than 4,200 Euros ($5,900; £3,660) for the last five months of her contract.

Kid killed parents over doing chores

Chores are never a teenager's favorite way to spend a day, but for 14-year-old John Caudle chores were the motive for murder, Colorado police say.
In an arrest affidavit, Caudle told investigators that on Oct. 26, 2009 he argued with his mother because he didn’t want to do household chores like taking out the trash or cleaning his room. Then he said he went to a gun safe, removed two .22 caliber pistols and shot his mother dead.
Caudle said he then hid in a laundry room and shot his stepfather when he walked past a short time later.
After killing his parents, he spent the evening watching movies and playing on a computer.
The next morning, Caudle even drove his stepfather's truck to school, according to police.
His friends and teachers said that Caudle seemed "happy" the day after the murder, investigators said.
Authorities have charged Caudle as an adult in the slayings. He faces two counts of first-degree murder.
Family members found the bodies.

Spider jumps on baby, so what does the mom do?
A mother must have freaked when a spider jumped on her baby. Because she burned the kid trying to get it off.
The story: A 5-month-old baby from Wesley Chapel was brought to a Pasco fire station with second-degree burns on his torso.
The baby's mom, Krystal Cummings, 27, saw a spider in the tub as she prepared to give her son a bath. So she turned on the faucet to try to wash the spider down the drain.
The spider jumped on her son and she grabbed the baby and put him under the running water to get the spider off.
The water was hot. “Really Hot.”
After he screamed, Cummings ran cold water over the baby, wrapped him in a towel and took him to a nearby fire station for help. The baby was flown by helicopter to Tampa General Hospital with second-degree burns.
Lady next time flick the damn spider off.

Marion County deputies responded to a Dunnellon intersection Friday evening after someone called to report an erratic driver, later identified as 56-year-old Antonin Kanka. By the time deputies arrived, Kanka was stopped at an intersection and had reportedly slept through several cycles of red and green lights.

Only from Japan

Potato Chip Eating Hand Keeps Your Fingers Clean
Here’s another really weird gadget from Japan, it’s a plastic hand that you can use to grab potato chips out of the bag and eat with. This little device promises to keep your chip hand grease free. Although if you eat so many potato chips that you need a specially designed tool to eat them with, maybe keeping your hands clean is the last thing you need to worry about.
Supposedly, the tiny plastic fingers are gentle enough that they won’t crush your potato chips no matter how hard you press the button. Pressing the button harder won’t make you look any tougher or more ridiculous either.

Just how weird can Japan go?

61 billion-to-one fluke or fake

Four card players were astonished to pick up identical straight run hands in a bizarre fluke calculated as a 61 billion-to-one chance.
Lady luck was definitely at the table when the increasingly amazed foursome started to sort through their 13-card hands.
Each found he had a run of cards from an ace through to the 10 and completed with a jack, queen, king flourish.
The freak outcome happened last week as Owen Williams, Meirion Hopkins, Ieuan Griffiths and Mike Harwood sat down to play a game called Crush at Brynamman Industrial Club near Ammanford, South Wales.
They were so intrigued by the outlandish outcome they called Cardiff School of Mathematics to find out what the odds were.
Lecturer Rhyd Lewis astonished them further by calculating the odds at a breathtaking 61,204,166,001 to one.

One scoop at a time


Trouble in the golf world but isn't about Tiger Woods.

It's about William and Dorothy Abbott who built a home in North Naples in the mid '80s. It was nothing but “scraggly farm land” at the time. Then in 1993 developers built the Stonebridge golf course next to their home.
Now golf balls rain down on their home every day.
Most land with a soft thud in the well-kept lawn. But some crash through their living room windows, smash garden ornaments crack the concrete roof tiles and rip holes through their lanai screens, reports.
Their home and yard get pelted with up to 200 golf balls a month. In letters dating to 1995, the golf course has repeatedly claimed no responsibility for errant shots by its golfers. Stonebridge plans to redesign its course, which may help the matter.

Brits think bacon comes from sheep
A survey of British youngsters suggests 26 percent of the country's under-16 population erroneously believe bacon comes from sheep.
The survey of 800 children and adults, conducted for the Home Grown Cereals Authority and the National Farmers' Union, also suggests 29 percent of youngsters believe oats grow on trees and 17 percent of both children and adults are under the false impression that eggs are a necessary ingredient in bread.
"Everyone should know where primary foods like cereals are grown and the role they play as part of a healthy, balanced diet," said Peter Kendall, president of the National Farmers' Union. "More than half the food consumed in the U.K. is produced on British farms, yet the public, and especially young people, are unable to make this connection."
Man Arrested at Wal-Mart for Urinating on Steaks
An Ohio man is in jail after police arrested him on charges of urinating on a meat counter at a Wal-Mart store.
Robert T. Jenkins, 21, of Canton, Ohio, walked up to the meat counter and began urinating on the steaks. The disorderly conduct destroyed more than $600 dollars in meat.
Jenkins was charged with felony vandalism and disorderly conduct.
It's just a powdered donut, turns out to be cocaine
When officers pulled a 21-year-old Knoxville woman over on Airport Highway in Alcoa early Thursday, she allegedly told officers it was a powdered donut she was eating when they came to the window.
But a field test on the substance indicated the white powder she put in her mouth was not from a sugary pastry, but, rather, was cocaine, according to an Alcoa police report. Whitney Alison Holte was arrested and charged with possession of a Schedule II substance with intent to sell or deliver and three attachments for contempt; she was also cited with driving on a suspended driver's license, driving without proof of insurance, failure to maintain her lane of traffic and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Candy Leads to Arrest
Two New York men were jailed and held for almost a week after two police officers mistook a bag of candy for crack, authorities said.
"Sweet happens," a police source as say unapologetically of the mistake.
After Jose Pena and Cesar Rodriguez had gone into a liquor/convenience store to buy their usual coconut candy, two cops waiting outside asked to search their minivan.
"I said 'Go search.' I even opened the door," Rodriguez said.
One officer rummaged around found a "Hello Kitty" sandwich bag with a crumbled substance inside, shouted "Bingo!"
The two plumbers were handcuffed and taken into custody even though the cops could have realized their mistake on the spot, the men's lawyer told the Post.
"That's the reason why they have a field-test kit," Neal Wallerstein said.
Pena was released after three days in custody and Rodriguez after five, the Post said.
"I didn't know having candy was a crime," Rodriguez said.

Beetle Brooch and US Customs

Anything to declare, ma'am? … Yes, this live, wriggling jewel-encrusted pet beetle brooch … Sorry ma'am, you don't have the right paperwork, you need a PPQ form 526
It was an unlikely fashion accessory but the arrival of a jewel-encrusted beetle at a US border post certainly bugged customs officers.
A woman crossing from Mexico at Brownsville, Texas, declared the live insect decorated with blue and gold as she drove up to enter the state but she did not have the right paperwork.
Pest control measures meant officers promptly confiscated the item worn as a brooch on the traveler’s sweater and sent it for further inspection. The beetle was attached to the woman's clothing by a gold chain and safety pin.
Animal rights campaigners were less forgiving, reported the south Texan newspaper The Monitor.. Jaime Zalac, for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said: "Beetles may not be as cute and cuddly as puppies and kittens, but they have the same capacity to feel pain and suffer. It's ironic. We spend hours each week helping kind people find humane ways to relocate lost insects such as ants, bees and roaches that wander into their homes. People feel so good about not hurting them, while this woman paid someone to mutilate them."

Man charged with biting cops nipple off

A south suburban Hazel Crest man has been charged after he allegedly bit a Chicago Police officer in the chest during a fight outside Gibsons Bar and Steakhouse in the Near North Side Gold Coast neighborhood Sunday night, police said.
Fernando Cooper, 31, of the 18100 block of South Kedzie Avenue in Hazel Crest, was charged at 8:15 p.m. Monday with attempting to disarm a peace officer and aggravated battery to a peace officer, both of which are felonies. He was also charged with three counts of misdemeanor resisting arrest and cited with a city violation for panhandling in a prohibited manner, according to police.
About 9:30 p.m. Sunday, the off-duty officer became involved in a dispute with Cooper outside Gibsons, 1028 N. Rush St., according to a police report.
Near North District officers who were already in the area saw a disturbance and a struggle, during which the officer identified himself as police but Cooper allegedly continued to refuse “verbal commands,’’ and bit the officer, prompting responding officers to deploy a chemical spray at Cooper, the report said.
The officer suffered swelling and cuts to eye along with a severe bite to the nipple.
An ambulance transported the officer to North-western Memorial Hospital where he was treated by a doctor who later said the victim lost a body part because of severe damage from the bite, according to the report.
Cooper suffered cuts and bruising to the face area and was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment, the report said.
During the struggle, Cooper allegedly grabbed the officer's holster, according to the report. After several attempts, he was eventually placed into custody.

Baltimore Police Lieutenant Charged In Sexting

A police lieutenant who has served nearly three decades on the Anne Arundel County force has been charged with child pornography.
According to court documents, James Cifala, 47, exchanged sexually explicit picture messages -- a practice known as "sexting" -- with a 16-year-old girl.
"The parents of a teenage girl contacted the FBI and reported that their daughter was having what appeared to them to be an inappropriate relationship with an adult male," said U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein. They didn't know at the time who it was."
Copies of some of the text messages are in the criminal complaint. Investigators said Cifala texted to the girl that she should call him "Johnny."
Authorities said Cifala gave the girl the phone for the purpose of dealing with him. The current charge doesn't allege that he committed an actual sex crime.

Really bad hair day
Woman wasn’t quick enough to scoop her doggy poop and got a faceful in return from angry homeowner
An aggrieved man decided there was only one way to teach the owner of a messy dog a lesson – to smear the offending material on her head.
A 41-year-old woman from Silkeborg, Jutland was walking home with her shopping bags when her dog ran into neighboring garden and did its dirty business.
The 68-year-old homeowner was not amused and demanded the woman clean up after her dog, but the only plastic bag the woman had to hand was the one filled with her shopping.
The woman reportedly offered to run home and return with a bag to scoop up after her dog, but the man didn’t want to hear of it.
‘He was really aggressive. He grabbed the woman by the hair, held on tight to her and rubbed the dog poop all over her head,’
Man Plays Vet, Kills Friends Dog
Deputies in Oakland Park, Florida say a man killed a friend's dog in a coffee-table operation that used a needle, dental floss and Chloroform to keep the flinching dog still.
Sheriff's deputies said the dog, a hound/retriever mix named Zoe, was staying with William Ralph Jones, 55, because the owner could not keep the dog at her home. Last week, Jones dropped the dead dog off at her home, wrapped in a white sheet with a wound sewn together.
Investigators learned Zoe had escaped from Jones' yard through a hole in a fence and suffered a 3-4 inch cut on her chest.
Jones allegedly put glue on the wound. Two days later, Zoe got loose again and the wound re-opened.
Deputies said Jones placed Zoe on a coffee table, asked his roommate for a muscle relaxant, and began to sew the wound with a needle and dental floss.
"Zoe yelped and kicked to try to free herself," the sheriff's office said. "To stop Zoe from moving, he soaked a cloth with Chloroform; a liquid formerly used as an anesthetic, and put it on her muzzle. A short time later, Zoe became still and stopped breathing."
Detectives charged Jones with two counts of felony animal abuse. They said if convicted, Jones could get 20 years in prison.
Mom forces son to kill hamster for bad grade

Man poses as cop, interferes with sex sting
A 51-year-old Detroit man was arrested for impersonating an officer after police said he interfered with a prostitution sting.
Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon said in a release Wednesday that the man pulled alongside an undercover female officer on Detroit's east side, flashed a badge and yelled "get off the street." Another man who believed he was speaking with a prostitute drove away.
Napoleon said the suspect continued to follow his deputy, but sped off when she told him she was an officer. He was stopped and arrested by other deputies who found a loaded .40-caliber handgun, a Detroit police badge, hats and other clothing with police logos in his pickup.
School photo shoot spells trouble for three
A spelling prank in a class photo for more than 600 seniors in the Houston area led to suspension of three students.
Some students wore T-shirts spelling out "CLASS" as part of "Class of 2010" in a formal shot. But in a later informal shot, students representing "C" and "L" moved from the front row, leaving behind an offensive three-letter word.
Administrators at Cypress Ridge High School cited the school's code of conduct and suspended the three students for three days. The penalty began Tuesday.
Senior Austin Knight says "C and L ran off" and it's not the fault of the three students, wearing A, S and S, who also were fined $135. The money will help pay the cost of retouching the photo.
Senior Raymond Carrigan said the students were "ignorant and disrespectful."
