Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Real Cop, 'Fake' Police Dog Traps Two
A quick thinking police woman stopped fleeing suspects in their tracks by grabbing a passing Labrador and shouting: "Stop! Or I'll release the dog!" The teenagers didn't have a clue that the barking animal wasn't a police dog and they handed themselves over to Pc Leanne Murphy. The two boys, aged 15 and 16, were believed to have broken into a mill.
Pc Murphy said she arrested and handcuffed the boys. "When I gave the lady her dog back, their faces were quite a picture," she said. "They didn't say a word. They started to cry."
Angry Passenger Uses Emergency Slide to Leave Plane
Guyanese authorities say a first-class airline passenger was so angry at seeing economy passengers leave a jetliner before him that he yanked open an emergency hatch and slid down the chute.
Police spokesman Sealall Persaud says the Guyanese man identified as Satyanand Christopher appeared to be intoxicated after the Delta Airlines flight from New York.
Persaud said Sunday that local police arrested Christoper, who was quickly released on bail after the Friday incident.
Delta spokesman Junior Horatio says the U.S. carrier plans to file charges against the man for interfering with flight crew members.
Frozen 'hands' prove to be animal gonads
The new owner of a Texas apartment called police when he found what appeared to be human hands in the freezer -- only to learn they were animal testicles.
Patrick McCusker of Fort Worth stumbled across the items Friday while he was cleaning out the freezer.
Roger Metcalf of the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office said the objects did indeed look like hands, especially since they had been placed inside a plastic surgeon's glove.
"You couldn't tell what they were until you got the things open," he said.
Metcalf said the objects are now outside the Medical Examiner's jurisdiction. The office will not determine what type of animal the testicles belonged to.
