Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know You Needed

Hazing included chili on penises
Eight Philippine police officers have been detained for investigation after a video surfaced showing them humiliating, laughing and taking videos of naked recruits during anti-insurgency training, officials said.
In the latest hazing scandal to hit the country, national police spokesman Agrimero Cruz Jr. said at least three superiors of the eight officers may also be relieved of their posts and investigated over the "barbaric" treatment.
Commission on Human Rights official Byron Bocar said a video sent to the agency showed the officers applying liquid laced with chili pepper on the penises of the trainees, who screamed in pain.
Last year, police officials relieved the entire staff of a Manila police station after a television network broadcast a video showing police torturing a naked detainee, who screamed on the floor as a man pulled a rope tied to his genitals and whipped him.
Man urinates on 46 six-packs of malt liquor
Security guards watching over the liquor department at the Rapid City Wal-Mart have been busy in the last month.
Last week police arrested a Rapid City man for urinating on 48 six-packs of malt liquor, after security caught 27-year-old Matthew Bihn in action. Bihn faces charges of destruction of property and unlawful deposit.
The Authorities reports that all of the contaminated merchandise was destroyed.
Last month, a 57-year-old Rapid City man was busted by security after he opened a can of beer in the store late and drank it. Police say Perry Arpan attempted to put the can back in the case, then set the beer in another aisle and tried to leave the building.
Arpan was arrested for shoplifting.
Woman strips naked during charity event
City officials in Woodward, Oklahoma say they're "offended" that a woman stripped naked during a charity golf event at a city-owned golf course.
The local Elks Lodge hosted the event at Boiling Springs Golf Course as part of its annual rodeo. Event Chairman Neal Day said the woman stripped naked as part of a challenge on a putting green.
Day says the woman was not asked to strip. He said she was a last minute recruit when another volunteer couldn't attend.
City Manager Alan Riffel says he and other city leaders are "offended" and that their anger has been relayed to the Elks and the golf course operator.
Man shaved nude on beach
A Massachusetts man is facing lewd charges after lifeguards say he refuses to stop shaving himself while nude on a beach.
The Eagle Tribune reports that Christopher Axford was arrested Monday on a beach in Salisbury.
According to a police report, the 45-year-old was shaving his armpits while his shorts were pulled down to his shins when police arrived to the scene.
Axford, who police said is homeless, was charged with lewd, wanton and lascivious conduct, public drinking and disorderly conduct and release on personal recognizance. Less than 12 hours after his release, Axford was arrested again on charges he stole a tip jar from a pizzeria. He is being held without bail pending a pretrial hearing
