Putting a stop on 'Freak' Dancing

Administrators at Brighton High School said they’re trying to stop a style of dancing they consider obscene on school grounds and recently cancelled a popular winter event to make their point.
Officials were concerned students would engage in “freaking" or sexually suggestive movements on the dance floor.
The school required anyone interested in attending the Winterfest dance to sign a contract beforehand.

BK customers get surprise blue pill in sandwiches

Bryant Keith Jones, 32, and Woody Bernard Duclos, 20, were arrested after customers at the Jacksonville Burger King where the two worked reported a blue pill was placed inside their sandwiches.
Turns the blue pills were Hydrocodone.
Tomeria Kendrick and his mother visited the Burger King and bought a chicken sandwich at the drive-thru. Inside the sandwich, he told police he found a blue pill. His mother took him to Fire Station 54; once he was cleared, she went back to Burger King - sandwich and pill in hand.
Later that evening, Kendrick suffered a seizure and was transported to Baptist South as a precaution.
Ernest McHenry and a coworker visited the restaurant about an hour after Kendrick and his mother left and bought a fish sandwich and a cheeseburger. There was a blue pill inside McHenry's sandwich.
Police were summoned.
After figuring out who was making the specialty sandwiches police questioned Jones, who told the cops that he had a bottle of prescribed Hydrocodone with him and had given three to a coworker, Duclos, who was complaining of back pain.
A witness told police she believes Duclos "did this because he was disgruntled and angry" in his work.
Burger King fired the employees.
But losing their jobs is probably the least of their concerns now -- the sheriff's office is investigating.

Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

Dumbest crook leaves trail of evidence
Within an hour of being charged and bailed over other break-ins, Bendigo man Andrew Bawden, 36, was back in business, busting into cars and houses and robbing offices and a cathedral.
But his one-man crime wave came unstuck when he dropped his police charge sheet at one crime scene.
Two hours later he dropped the DVD of his police interview at another.
"You get crooks sometimes that leave one thing that's stupid. Both things are extraordinary," Bendigo police Sgt Brendon Murphy said.
"From the police perspective it's quite good. We appreciate people who leave evidence for us."
Breaking driving laws caused indigestion to one man
A trucker who ate evidence of breaking Swiss speed limits has paid the price -- a stomach ache from swallowing the discs which recorded his driving, police said Tuesday.
The 34-year-old trucker from the Balkans was stopped for speeding on a highway in the southern canton of Tessin and was found to have driven more than 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) in 18 hours without stop, local police said.
Hunkered down in his cab, the man reportedly gobbled up the paper discs of his truck's tacho graph, which records speed and the time driven. He was hospitalised after suffering stomach pains.
The incident posed no serious health consequences, police said, and the driver was fined for the infraction.
Tacho graphs are intended to ensure that truck drivers do not work overly long hours as part of overall road safety requirements.
'Why do I need to give my name, I have done nothing'
A 22-year-old man was arrested for resisting law enforcement after he wouldn't tell a deputy his date of birth, according to an Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office arrest report.
A deputy responded to a call of a disturbance at 955 Airport Road around 5:35 p.m. Feb. 9, the report said. When the deputy found the man standing on the sidewalk and asked him what was going on, the man said, "Nothing, I am just standing here."
The deputy asked the man what his name was, and the man said, "why do I need to give my name, I have done nothing," according to the report. The man then gave his name.
When the deputy asked for his date of birth, he said, "7, I am cold," according to the report, but would not provide his date of birth.
