Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

Peeing on Patrol Car
Authorities in Wilson, N.C. say 23-year-old Chuck R. Daniels was charged with urinating in public after Trooper Kevin Woods reviewed surveillance camera records.
Woods says he found the windows and doors on the passenger side of his car were wet when he returned after taking a suspect into the Wilson County Magistrate's Office.
Daniels is expected in court in May on charges he urinated on a North Carolina Highway Patrol car parked in front of a county magistrate's office.
Authorities say Daniels had been arrested on misdemeanor charges of possession of stolen goods and drugs. Woods says the man had been released and was waiting for a ride home when he urinated on the car.
Robber with big stick steals $10 in gas
A suspect in a southwestern Pennsylvania gas station robbery walks tall and carries a big stick.
State police in Uniontown say they're hoping surveillance video or witnesses can help them identify the man who robbed the Sunoco Gas station on U.S. Route 119 in Bullskin Township Friday afternoon.
Police say the man asked for $10 in gas and, after it was pumped, got out of his vehicle with an 18-inch piece of wood and demanded money from the gas station attendant.
Police say the man is thin and tall, perhaps as tall as 6-foot-3. The clean-shaven man is driving a two-door Pontiac Grand Am with no license plate.
