A "radioactive" suspected sex offender has gone on the run after failing to attend his trial for child pornography offences.
A judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Thomas Leopold, a college principal, amid warnings from doctors that he is contaminated with a "dangerous" level of radiation.
The 42-year-old was due to face trial for downloading indecent images of children but fled Britain after receiving large doses of radiotherapy treatment for a thyroid condition.
Southwark Crown Court heard that Mr Leopold could harm anyone he comes into contact, due to the radiation.
Judge John Price said: "Please warn officers that when he is arrested he might be radioactive."
He added: "This is not a joke."
The court was told that Mr Leopold jumped bail on February 5 - four days before his trial - to board an overnight ferry to Ireland, under the nose of police.
Defending, Jeannie Mackie, said her client was "chronically" ill and warned of the dangers his radioactive condition posed to people coming into contact with him.
She said: "His doctor confirmed that he is dangerous, in terms of radioactivity, for a period of six weeks after treatment and he had treatment on February 3."
Leopold, of Hammersmith, west London, denies five counts of making indecent images of children, and one of possessing indecent images of children, in 2006.
A woman went into an operating room to have her left breast removed — and woke to find her right one had been taken off by mistake.
Anne Bouton, 65, was left deeply traumatized after the bungled op to treat a tumor.
She said: "The evening before a nurse clearly marked my left breast, also making clear that the right breast should be left untouched."
Sylvie Négrier — director of the Léon Bérard cancer center in Lyon, France — blamed a "human and team error".
She said: "There were five people in the operating room but no-one spotted the mistake."
Human Anatomy 101
Man, something like that happened last year in Germany- they had to amputate a guy's leg, and took off the wrong one... So he ended up losing both.
Female jailers had sex with inmates; ex-sheriff to surrender.
A former sheriff from Texas and several ex-jailers were among 17 people named Friday in a 106-count indictment on charges ranging from having sex with inmates to bringing them drugs at a now-closed county jail.
Former Montague County Sheriff Bill Keating was charged with official oppression and having sex with inmates, according to the indictment. Keating was defeated in a primary election last spring.
Several female jailers were charged with having sex with inmates and bringing them drugs, cell phones and cigarettes, while several male jailers were charged with drug possession and with bringing inmates banned items, according to the indictment.
Several inmates also were charged with drug possession, according to the indictment.
State District Judge Roger Towery has sealed the names in the indictments until the suspects are arrested, but their jobs and charges were made public.
Keating's attorney, Mark Daniel my client will surrender "in due time."
The charges against Keating are "kind of silly in the face of the federal investigation, like piling on," Daniel said.
Keating, 62, has pleaded guilty to a federal civil rights violation in an unrelated case involving the sexual assault of a woman. He is to be sentenced to up to 10 years in federal prison in May. Keating told a woman she would be jailed on drug charges unless she had sex with him.
Man Uses Fake Money To Buy Fake Drugs From Real Cops
A Johnson City, Tennessee man has been arrested after police said he used counterfeit money to purchase fake OxyContin pills from an undercover officer.
Unicoi County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 21-year-old Kyle Kochelek on Tuesday and charged him with criminal conspiracy with schedule II drugs, forgery and criminal simulation.
Investigator Frank Rogers said the officer met with several people at a mobile home park and arranged for Kochelek and anotherman to come to Unicoi to buy 76 OxyContin pills for $4,875.
Officers say it was "obviously bad money" with some bills printed on just one side.
Authorities also tracked down the device believed used to make the counterfeit money.
Looks like some of West Virginia's mental talents are starting to creep over the line into
The bijou headdress is made of dozens of real mice and rat carcasses.
It covers the full face – leaving just a gap for the eyes – and is complete with rat tails hanging down the front.
'I know not everybody likes mice and rats but they can be beautiful. I think the headdress is really cute,' explained French designer Charlie Le Mindu, 22.
Uhh ... why? And might I add "eww."
Screw the suits! Ya, that’s right, I said it and I’ll say it again…SCREW THEM!

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to management to be considered for the SHAFT scheme (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (Scheme Covering Retired-Early Workers).
A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Management deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependants & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).
Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by Management.
Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. Management has always prided itself on the amount of SHIT it gives employees. Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your Supervisor, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.
Now Get Back To Work
The creamy bits are too sweet for me so I get rid of the center and have the cookies.

Who really cares??? If you enjoy it then watch it. If not then turn the channel. Kind of like paying for sex. Did she really have an orgasm??? Who cares!!! I enjoyed it!!!
A Russian man died after guzzling a bottle of Viagra to keep him going for a 12-hour orgy with two female pals.
The women had bet mechanic Sergey Tuganov $4,300 that he wouldn’t be able to follow through with the half-day sex marathon.
But minutes after winning the bet, the 28-year-old died of a heart attack, Moscow police said.
"We called emergency services but it was too late, there was nothing they could do," said one of the female participants who identified herself only as Alina.
Sergey Tuganov sounds alot like that steel driven man John Henry.
Indiana Teenager Critically Burned Trying to Kill Head Lice
An Evansville, Indiana teenager who soaked her hair in gasoline to try to kill head lice was critically burned when the gas fumes ignited and set her head ablaze, Evansville, Ind. police said.
Eighteen-year-old Jessica Brooks is in serious condition at the burn unit at University Hospital in Louisville, Ky., following Sunday night's fire at her Evansville apartment.
Police said Brooks was in her apartment's bathroom letting her hair soak in gasoline just before a pilot light from a water heater ignited the gas fumes and her hair.
Brooks was put in a medically induced coma.
Brooks and her fiancé, Ronald Young, had planned to wed in May. Young suffered burns on his arms trying to extinguish the flames.
I know of people who used to put kerosene on head lice but I've never heard of gasoline...
KFC Employees Treated After Being Exposed To Fumes
A Hazmat call to a Manchester New Hampshire Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant was determined to have been sparked by a hoax call, police said.
Firefighters were called to the restaurant on Hooksett Road because employees reported eye and skin irritation from a fire extinguisher. When emergency crews arrived, they found three employees disrobed outside of the building.
The employees told police that the restaurant got a call from someone claiming to be from corporate headquarters who asked them to test their fire suppression system. When they did and reported that they had chemicals from the extinguisher on their clothes, the caller told them they needed to take their clothes off.
The workers said they became suspicious when the caller then told them to urinate on each other.
Two officers were sent to a hospital for treatment from being exposed to chemicals inside the building, and two employees were also treated at a hospital. The third employee refused treatment.
Police said they are investigating the incident as a criminal matter. The restaurant was closed until health officials could determine that it was safe to re-open.
Police in Kansas City Missouri and medical examiners who thought a man died of natural causes changed their minds after funeral-home workers found bullet holes in his head.
The Kansas City Star reported Thursday that three bullet wounds — two of them in Anthony Crockett's head — were noticed after the man's body was embalmed Friday. The funeral home returned the 49-year-old Kansas City man's body to the Jackson County medical examiner's office, and police counted the death as a homicide.
Detectives and Jackson County medical examiners never visited Crockett's home to inspect his body. A paramedic told police he believed the death was natural after finding prescription containers for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes in the home.
Crockett's girlfriend, who had called police after finding his body, told authorities that he had heart problems for years.
Police noted blood on Crockett's face, but victims can bleed from natural causes or a fall. They did not collect forensic evidence, and by the time the mistake was realized and investigators secured Crockett's house as a crime scene, relatives already had cleaned it.
It was the second time in 17 months that a Kansas City funeral home returned a homicide victim's body mistakenly ruled a natural death by the medical examiner's office.
The other case was in September 2007 and involved Lorraine Grayson, 77, who had been beaten and sexually assaulted in her home. Police later found out that Grayson's purse was missing and her 46-year-old neighbor was charged with her death.
"This kind of mistake is a pretty bad mistake," said Thomas Young, the former Jackson County medical examiner who now runs a private forensic pathology practice.

Police Officer Martin Duffy repels down the side of 2430 Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. in Harlem to shoot a 400-pound Bengal-Siberian tiger, that was kept in an apartment, with a tranquilizer. The sedated tiger, named Ming, and a 3-foot Cayman alligator were removed from the building. The animals’ owner was tracked down in Philadelphia and charged with reckless endangerment.
When first accredited by a Guinness World Record official in 2000, Davidson had 462 piercings, with 192 in her face alone.
Now, nine years later, she has 6,005 including more than 1,500 that are "internal".
However, despite her eye-watering record, Miss Davidson, born in Brazil, claims she doesn't like being pierced, and suffers for her art.
She said: "I don't enjoy getting pierced, but to break the record you have to get to a high level.
"I wanted to break the record.
"My family don't even like tattoos or piercing.
"But I am happy. I decided to change myself and be me."
I don't even want to go down that road... but it probably part of the bailout package.

That would pretty much scare the living shit out of me at about 2am while watching
A Somerset man suspected a worm virus when his computer crashed - but was shocked to learn the problem was a real wom.
Mark Taylor called out an IT repairmen who found a five inch earthworm inside his laptop.
It had crawled into his computer through an air vent and wrapped itself around the internal fan, leading to a total breakdown.
Mr Taylor, suspects the culprits were his two cats who are in the habit of pouncing on earthworms outside and bringing them into the house.
Mr Taylor, from Yeovil, said: "The worm was obviously looking for a hiding place and must have crawled in through the air vent to get away from the cats.
"I couldn't help thinking that people get computer worms all the time, but not real life ones."
Computer technician Sam Robinson, 28, who discovered the worm said: "I took the back off and had a look inside. Then I spotted what at first I thought was some sort of hair band or elastic band wrapped around the fan.
"I soon discovered that it was a worm which had been burned to a frazzle. It had obviously wrapped around the fan when somebody had turned on the computer and caused the breakdown due to the fan jamming.
SWAT team suspended over nude photos
Police chiefs have suspended a group of SWAT cops who posed for nude pictures with their weapons out at their graduation party.
The nine elite officers - all men - stripped off and flashed their guns after a night of kinky sex games at the bash in Vastra Gotaland, Sweden.
In one featuring a male stripper, the special forces-trained cops posed for nude snapshots from the waist down while holding their police-issue sub-machine guns for a gay identity parade.
Shocked instructors broke up the bash and suspended the ringleaders from SWAT team duties while confining them to desk jobs.
Police spokesman Erik Nord said: "They say it was supposed to be a joke aimed at the instructors. During the party, a scenario was played out that was intended to shock them. They didn't display the most fabulous sense of judgment."
Funeral director leaves corpse in hearse to rot
A funeral director faces a felony charge after police found a woman's decomposing body in the back of a hearse. Police said the 76-year-old funeral home owner was charged Tuesday with abusing a corpse. Police said the woman died of natural causes in November 2007 at the age of 52. Relatives said they wanted her remains cremated.
But police said the family never signed papers for a cremation or paid the funeral home. So the owner put the body in the back of a hearse and parked it on a lot with other old vehicles.
Someone complained about a foul odor, leading officers to discover the decomposing remains.
That funeral home guy is old school.."No Deposit No Return"...
lol that's my dad in the back ground... you need to experience the other things that go on in that shop... you would be amazed!
What is it with ass cracks and fireworks???? Is it just the natural stupidity of youth???
A sewage explosion forced families from their mobile homes in the town of St. Martins, Missouri
A Jefferson City crew responded to a complaint about a sewer line, and they used a jet truck. But the high pressure forced raw sewage to explode inside two homes.
Several inches of waste now coats the walls and floors.
"The smell was gagging, overwhelming. If you can picture 3 inches of crap floating around on the floor, that's what it is," homeowner Tom Ahler said.
"It's repulsive. It's disgusting. Something that no one should ever have to deal with," resident Tanya Eddy said.
To make matters worse, the families said workers with Jefferson City's wastewater treatment refused to come see the damage.
Instead, the men said they were given a brochure, titled, "What To Do In Case Of Sewer Backup." The homeowners said they were told to call the city's legal department.
The homeowners hired a cleaning company, but the job couldn't be finished because the interior plumbing is clogged.
Meanwhile, families are filing claims and finding other places to stay.
CCTV grab of Aaron Davie laughing after calling the parents of a boy to tell them their son had died in a hoax phone call
Aaron Davie was at a train station when a teenage boy approached him and asked if he could borrow his mobile phone to call his father for a lift home.
The 29-year-old, who had been out drinking, let the 15-year-old make the call but moments after he had wandered off, he pressed redial and delivered the cruel message.
After hanging up he was captured on CCTV collapsing in a fit of laughter as he swigged from a can of beer at Aston train station in Birmingham.
Prosecutor Jonathan Purser told Birmingham Magistrates' Court that Davie rang the youngster's father and said: "'Have you just been speaking to your son?'
Mr Purser added: "He said 'yes I have'. The man's voice then said 'he's just been killed' and the phone went dead."
Speaking outside court, the boy's parents said they had been terrified after the "cold and matter-of fact" call and rushed to the station in search of their son.
The boy's 50-year-old father said: "I nearly sunk to the floor. It was the worst 40 minutes of my life. I don't know how I functioned."
I don't know why the boy's father didn't get the joke,- you Brits have no sense of humor.
Brunei's customs officers arrested two men who tried to smuggle 1,382 cans of contraband beer by boat into the Muslim-majority country, a news report said Wednesday.
The men entered Brunei's waters from a neighboring nation Tuesday but tried to flee when they realized they had been spotted, the Borneo Bulletin newspaper reported. It did not identify the neighboring country, but Brunei shares borders with two Malaysian states on Borneo island.
Customs authorities foiled the escape after a high-speed chase, making their biggest seizure of alcohol this year, the report added.
Brunei's laws ban the public sale and consumption of alcohol, though non-Muslim visitors are allowed to bring in limited amounts for private consumption.
Two Arizona Teens Ran Prostitution Ring.
Two teenaged girls were arrested for allegedly pimping other students for prostitution, Phoenix police said.
Jazmine Finley and Tatiana Tye, both 16, allegedly used contacts from local schools and their friends to lure other young girls into prostitution.
Investigators said the suspects recruited at least five girls, ages 14 to 17.
Finley and Tye, who were allegedly involved in prostitution themselves, were responsible for recruiting, teaching and receiving money from the other girls who worked for them, police said.
At one point, the two rented an apartment where they conducted the prostitution operation, according to investigators.
The Phoenix Police Vice Unit began investigating when patrol officers gave detectives information on child prostitutes working the west Phoenix area.
The teens were charged with multiple counts of child prostitution, pandering and receiving the earnings of a prostitute.
Police said there may be additional arrests as they continue the investigation.

Topless 'Over-18' Café
Cup size has more than one meaning at a new central Maine coffeehouse.
Servers are topless at the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop, which opened its doors Monday on a busy road in Vassalboro. A sign outside says, "Over 18 only." Another says, "No cameras, no touching, cash only."
On Tuesday, two men sipped coffee at a booth while three topless waitresses and a bare-chested waiter stood nearby. Topless waitress Susie Wiley said men, women and couples have stopped by.
The coffee shop raised the ire of dozens of residents when it went before the town planning board last month. Town officials said the coffee shop met the letter of the law.
Dentist Says Groping Was Part of Treatment
The attorney for a Woodland California dentist told jurors that his client massaged women's chests as part of a medical treatment.
Defense attorney Michael Rothschild told the six-man, six-woman Yolo County jury that Mark Anderson was treating his female clients for temporomandibular disorder, or TMD. The attorney says the condition affects the muscles of the upper body.
Anderson faces 19 felony charges for skin-to-skin contact and one misdemeanor for touching a patient's breasts over her clothing. The incidents occurred between February 2005 and his arrest in August 2007 and brought complaints from 14 women.

A northeast Pennsylvania man faces years in prison for allegedly using his dead roommate’s cell phone to call women and ask for their lingerie sizes while pretending to be a representative for Victoria’s Secret.
Cpl. James Edwards of the Pennsylvania State Police at Bloomsburg said that David Claude English, 53, of Berwick, Pa., could have called more than 200 women over this three month period.
English would call the women and ask them to participate in a non-existent free giveaway. He would then allegedly ask for the women’s underwear and bra sizes under the guise that he would send them correct items.
Police linked English to the crime after two victims put a trace on the calls. English initially claimed someone else had used the phone illegally.
50 Jobs, 50 States in a Year? 1 Man Gives it a Try
At a time when some people are having trouble finding one job, Daniel Seddiqui is lining up 50 — one in every state.
Each job symbolizes the state's most famous industry, and each lasts one week — just long enough for the 26-year-old to appreciate the labor and explore the region.
Since starting in Utah in the first week of September, he's been a park ranger in Wyoming, a corn farmer in Nebraska and a wedding coordinator in Las Vegas.
Last week, in Week 23 of his yearlong saga, he was a cheesemaker in southeast Wisconsin. He mixed ingredients, hoisted slabs of cheddar — and tasted plenty of his work.
A 14-year-old boy in China was killed when his chair exploded, sending chunks of metal into his rectum. The bleeding this caused killed him.
The alleged explosion came from the gas cylinder that was in the base of the chair, the part that allowed the user to adjust the seat up and down. The canister gets compressed when you sit on it, but can it actually create enough energy to make the seat cushion explode like that and kill a man? I doubt it, but this is what people are reporting.
How many of you sitting on their crappy office chair reading this right now?

But when he started receiving copies of Playboy made out to various titles including "Ass Chief," he "knew something was terribly wrong," according to Internal Affairs documents.
A Sheriff’s Office investigation concluded Lt. William Medlin , a veteran with the department and Coffman’s former subordinate, removed subscription cards from various magazines and fraudulently placed the orders as a practical joke on his former boss.
Investigators didn’t appreciate the humor, and he was charged with violating the law, unbecoming conduct and failing to conform to work standards. The State Attorney’s Office declined to pursue criminal charges.
Medlin, who didn’t respond to interview requests, was suspended for 20 days without pay. Director Micheal Edwards said Medlin opted to forfeit 160 hours of vacation time instead, and he wasn’t removed from his position.
About 20 to 30 magazines, including Maxim and Muscle and Fitness, were sent to Coffman’s office. He also received invoices for mail-order merchandise he didn’t purchase.
He also said the subscriptions to Playboy weren’t offensive because they were sent in a black wrapper, even though the magazines would have been handled by several employees before arriving in Coffman’s mailbox.
Despite multiple calls from collections agencies, Coffman managed to cancel most of the subscriptions before his credit was affected. He still receives past due bills, according to the report.
A Bellevue man was on his second bungee jump from the 200-foot high Canyon Creek Bridge near Yacolt when the cord snapped.
Clark County sheriff's Sgt. Bill Roberts said Mark Afforde fell about 25 feet Thursday and landed in shallow water.
Afforde, 49, was with a group of fellow Boeing workers who were bungee jumping from the canyon bridge in Southwest Washingon. "The first jump was just phenomenal," Afforde said Thursday night outside the hospital, where even doctors were amazed he wasn't seriously injured. Afforde said he couldn't resist a second jump. But, just as he reached the bottom of the canyon, the cord snapped. "I was just along for the ride. I had no idea what was going on," he said. "I heard and saw the snap. I definitely felt the impact, and I was underwater. Once I checked and made certain I could still move and everything was working I felt I needed to get out of the water.
A cannabis grower got himself arrested after posting videos of his crop on YouTube.
Officers saw footage on the website documenting the stages of growth at his home in Bridgwater, Somerset.
The 25-year-old man made his arrest even easier after posting the clips under his real name, reports Metro.
Police searched the house and seized one large cannabis plant and hydroponics equipment.
PC Adrian Peck said: "He had been videoing the growth of the plant over a number of months and uploading his horticultural endeavours onto the site to document it - providing us with fairly conclusive evidence.
"The cultivation of cannabis is illegal. If you break the law and are foolish enough to then advertise your criminal activities on the internet, it makes it very easy for the police to catch you."
Police said the cannabis produced by the single plant could have had a potential street value of up to £500. Both the plant and growing equipment will be destroyed.
The man admitted the offence of cultivating cannabis, now a Class B drug, and received an official police warning.
Bush turns down job at DIY store
George W Bush has turned down his first chance of a new job since leaving the White House - at a hardware store in Dallas.
Elliots store manager Andrea Bond said the former US president entered the Elliott's outlet with his security detail saying "I'm looking for a job.".
The owner of the Texas chain had made the offer earlier this month in a letter published in a Dallas newspaper, reports the BBC.
But despite not yet having a publisher for his memoirs, Mr Bush decided on reflection to turn the job down.
Equipped with a name tag reading 'W', Mr Bush spent an hour there with his secret service security detail, chatting to customers and shopping.
Described as part-time, the job would have left Mr Bush time to work on his presidential library and write about his two terms at the White House.
"We're confident that your experience working in your own family business, as well as your people skills developed throughout years of meeting with foreign dignitaries would make you an excellent candidate for the position," read the job offer, signed by Kyle Walters, president and CEO of Elliott's Hardware.
"Furthermore, like you, many of our greeters are retired from the corporate world, so we're sure you'll have no trouble making new friends."
The employment package also offered parking for his security detail and an employee discount.
Barman hid takings in oven
A Norfolk barman is in trouble after he cashed up for his boss and hid the £1,000 takings - in a hot oven.
Landlord Martin Talbot had asked Luke Woolston, 19, to cash up at his boozer then put the money in a "safe" place.
He was horrified when Luke texted to say he had put the full till drawer in the switched-on cooker, reports The Sun.
Mr Talbot, 36, said: "He's usually a sensible lad so I trusted him to cash up and conceal the takings away from prying eyes. I thought he was joking when he said he'd stuck the money in the oven.
"But when I got to the kitchen and smelt the burning, I realized he was being serious. I pulled out the plastic till drawer using oven gloves and stared at £1,000 of badly burnt notes. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry."
But he has now forgiven Luke and allowed him to keep his job at The Jolly Farmers in Ormesby.
He said: "I could have screamed and shouted at Luke but it's not really my style. He's worked here for two years and hasn't put a foot wrong until now."
The Bank of England has told him some notes may still be usable if their serial numbers are legible. His insurers also said he may get some cash back.
Robber picks his weapon of choice. Hint: it's not a water pistol
Man tries to rob pharmacy with machine gun
Really, a simple little gun is sufficient.
It'll kill or just scare the bejesus out of the people you want to rob.
But it wasn't good enough for Joseph Anthony Kalbhenn, 25, of Belleview.
He's accused of using a machine gun in an attempt to rob an Ocala pharmacy.
That's right, a machine gun.
A loaded 9mm Mac 11 machine gun.
Wearing a mask made from pantie hose, gloves and armed with the machine gun, the man demanded prescription drugs -- specifically Oxycontin and Percocet.
But Ocala folks stay cool under pressure.
Byron McClellan, the pharmacist, tried befriending Kalbhenn in hopes that the man would drop his guard.
"He kinda put the gun by his side and that was when I grabbed it and we tussled to the ground," McClellan said.
Instead Kalbhenn jumped up with the weapon in hand and fled.
An employee alerted police who nabbed Machine Gun Kalbhenn.
"I wouldn't never use (the machine gun) for anything or do any harm. I'm not a violent person at all," he said.
Machine gun boy wasn't a violent person... really stupid, yes, a Darwin Award winner, yes, deserves to get his ass kicked up around his shoulders, yes, but violent, nah!

A Bellevue, Neb., woman said she was billed for more than $1,000 in phone sex calls that she never made.
Arlene Hald, 86, said she was surprised to receive a bill addressed to her husband, Sylvester, who has been dead for nearly 20 years.
Sylvester Hald never had a credit card, yet an account in his name was charged for phone sex services.
"We knew this was wrong," said Arlene Hald's daughter, Peggy Rytych.
Rytych said she suspected her late father was the victim of identity theft and called Preferred Platinum Plan, the billing company. It agreed to forgive the charges.
"So we thought, 'OK, that's the end of it,'" Rytych said. "Then last week, she got a new bill from them in my dad's name and the same address for another $71.49."
A company representative agreed to remove the latest charge and promised never to bill her again.
Hald and her daughter said they hope the matter is put to rest once and for all.
Dentist fined for forcibly removal of woman’s teeth
A German court Friday found a dentist guilty of assault for forcibly extracting the dentures from a patient who did not pay a 700-euro (623-pound) bill.
The dentist apologized to the municipal court in Neu-Ulm after he was fined 6,000 euros for going to the woman's home and taking the false teeth from her mouth.
"His lawyer read a statement expressing remorse and he apologized, saying he just blew a fuse because he was under a lot of professional and personal stress," Kolb told Reuters. He was trying to collect 700 euros not covered by her insurance.
The woman appeared in court with no teeth and said she did not want to wear dentures again because of the distress the incident had caused.
11-Year-Old Boy Kills Future Stepmother, Brother
Body of Kenzie Houk Found by 4-year-old Daughter
Police in Wampum, Pennsylvania, are charging another child with killing an adult just days after the Arizona case of an 9-year-old child who killed two adults was settled. An 11-year-old boy whose name has not been released was charged not only with the homicide of his father's Kenzie Houk, 26, but also the 8-month-old baby she was carrying. Police and relatives, say that the boy was jealous of the unborn child, also a boy, which was due in two weeks. Police say the 11-year-old boy shot the woman who was soon to be his stepmother at around 8 a.m. Friday morning, then boarded his school bus and went to school as if nothing had happened. The body was discovered by Kenzie Houk's 4-year-old daughter later that morning.
Dog with a phobia of men left stranded
A dog with a phobia of men was stranded for two nights at the foot of an 80ft cliff after refusing help from male rescuers - until a female RSPCA officer was called in to winch him to safety.
Hope was fading that Collie-Huskie cross 'Fox' would be pulled out alive after he growled, barked and backed away from a string of male coastguards who were unsuccessfully winched down to try and save him.
Until, that was, his owner revealed where they were going wrong.
Jane Ravine, 58, said Fox had a hatred of men, so a female RSPCA officer was scrambled to try her luck.
And having touched down in the cove, Fox gleefully jumped into her arms and was safely returned home, shaken but unharmed.
