Sneaky Ex-Boyfriend Lands Up In Prison

It doesn’t pay to be a sneak was what a man from Kansas, US, realised after an incident at his ex-girlfriend’s house, according to a report.

The man who was hospitalised after sneaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and falling through the ceiling has been arrested for alleging stealing clothes from another home after leaving the hospital, says an Associated Press report.

Authorities said he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and hid in the attic for a couple hours before falling through the ceiling. Later, a woman reported finding a hospital gown on her bed and noticing her clothing had been disturbed.

Police say they’d received a medical-emergency call about the man and later found him wearing the woman’s T-shirt.

The Eye-Roll Which Stole The Show

It was a mere eye-roll but it took the Chinese media by storm before the authorities put a stop to it, says a report.

A TV reporter’s theatrical eye-roll during another journalist’s question at a news conference during China’s annual parliament session, exploded on Chinese social media before censors intervened, according to a Reuters report.

The incident unfolded on live television during a media session on the sidelines of the National People’s Congress where high-level officials field often pre-approved questions, mostly from domestic media.

Liang Xiangyi, a TV reporter from financial news outlet Yicai, seemed to find a fellow journalist’s long-winded question on China’s state asset management too much to bear.

Liang, standing next to the questioner, Zhang Huijun, rolled her eyes, looked Zhang up and down then turned away with another dismissive raising of the eyes.

Wedding In A Grocery Store

It may be the last place for a brewing a romance but a supermarket was used by a couple to tie the knot in the US, reveals a report.

The couple met at the supermarket and got married there with canned carrots and peas among their wedding guests, says an AP report.

The Valley News Dispatch said 69-year-old Larry Spiering and 61-year-old Becky Smith married at the Community Supermarket in Lower Burrell, where they met 10 years ago.

Smith said she was working at the supermarket when Spiering walked up and gave her a piece of paper with his name and phone number on it. She said it was only fitting that they married in the aisle where they met.

Getting High On Cookies

Staff at a day care centre in the US found that cookies sent to them had made them high, says a report.

Officials say cookies dropped off at a Maine day care centre that staff members complained contained no illicit substances, says an AP report. About a dozen staff members at Watch Me Shine day care in Bangor reported feeling intoxicated after they ate cookies dropped off by a parent.

However, none of the cookies tested positive for controlled substances.

The day care now prohibits outside food for children and staff, and no children ate the cookies.

Boy Hits The Wrong Note

A teenager found just the appropriate song when was caught by police after a chase in the US, according to a report.

The boy sang the theme from the television show Cops after he was arrested following the incident in New Jersey, says an AP report.

Haworth police said the 16-year-old was driving a stolen car when officers gave chase. Officers pursued the vehicle through a golf course before the suspect bailed out. He could be heard singing on dash cam video, “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?”

The teen faces charges including eluding, resisting arrest by flight, burglary and receiving stolen property.
