Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Woman Who Stripped to Avoid Arrest Going to Jail
A 36-year-old Sheboygan, Wisconsin woman who stripped in front of her children in a drunken attempt to avoid a shoplifting arrest is going to jail.
As part of a plea agreement, Julia E. Laack of Sheboygan pleaded no contest to three charges including retail theft. The Sheboygan Press says she was sentenced Thursday to six months in jail.
Prosecutors say Laack stole beef jerky and a lighter from a convenience store in October. They say when police went to her home she began screaming at three children and told a teenager the incident was his fault.
Laack then stripped to her underwear and told officers they couldn't arrest her because she would be naked.
Woman slashes own throat to get pain meds
