Florida man struck by car while attempting ‘In My Feelings’ challenge

It was only a matter of time before the internet’s latest viral dance challenge ended with someone getting run over.

And, of course, it happened in Florida.

Florida man Jaylen Norwood, 22, was hit by a car while his friend filmed a video of him dancing in the street in Boynton Beach, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Norwood uploaded a video on Instagram account of him participating in the latest viral trend, the #InMyFeelings Challenge. Also called the Shiggy Challenge or the Keke Challenge, the dance craze often involves drivers or passengers hopping out of moving vehicles to shimmy in the streets to Drake’s latest song, “In My Feelings.”

According to the caption of his video, Norwood had planned to leap onto the hood of an approaching car — presumably driven by another friend. But after his flip flop slid across a puddle, he fell to his knees — right before the oncoming vehicle slammed into him.

Teen burglar, out of data, woke up sleeping couple to ask for Wi-Fi access, police say

A teen broke into a home in California shortly after midnight last Saturday and woke a sleeping couple to ask if he could use their Wi-Fi network, authorities said.

The Palo Alto homeowner told police he got out of bed and shoved the 17-year-old suspect down the hallway and out the front door, then called 911.

The teen was arrested about a block away.

“The couple had been asleep in their bedroom when they were awakened by the unknown suspect speaking to them and asking to use their WiFi network,” Palo Alto police said in a statement.
“Officers determined the suspect had climbed into the home after cutting a screen covering an open window in the side yard,” police said. “The suspect’s motive for entering the home is unknown, but the victims reported that two kitchen knives were missing from a kitchen drawer.”

Police arrested the teen for residential burglary, prowling and providing false information to an officer. They did not release any information about him because he’s a minor.

Single shoe is all that remains of poacher eaten by lions as he hunted rhinos: Chewed footwear is pictured as fears grow over whether the cats will have to be killed after tasting human flesh

July 6, 2018 – A chewed-up shoe is all that is left of one of the poachers who broke into a South African game reserve to hunt rhinos, and ended up eaten by a pride of lions.

At least three hunters are believed to have been devoured by the predators at the Sibuya Game Reserve near Kenton-on-Sea in Eastern Province, South Africa, earlier this week.

Questions have since been raised over whether the lions, who are among the many species visitors can come close to on safari trips through the park, would now be a danger to humans and have to be put down.

P.S. Just how safe do these tourist vehicles look against a lion pride?

FOX NEWS June 24, 2018 – A quick-thinking bank teller in Ohio convinced an armed robbery suspect to hand over his own driver’s license earlier this month, leading to his eventual arrest, police said.

The suspect, identified as David Menser, 51, walked into a Huntington Bank in Columbus on June 4 and gave the teller a note saying he was armed and demanding money, authorities said.

“I have a gun,” the note read, the Columbus Dispatch reported, citing the arrest warrant.

The teller gave the man a stack of cash, but he demanded more from the machine in the lobby. The amount of cash given was not immediately known.

The teller then told the suspect that a driver’s license was required for making withdrawals from the machine, so the suspect handed over his own license, police said.

Menser fled with the cash, but the license helped police track him down on June 15.

He faces charges of aggravated robbery and threatening with a deadly weapon, police said.

A young man knifed himself to death in the mistaken believe that the jacket he was wearing was ‘stab-proof’.

Teesside Coroner’s Court  heard Easton died of a single stab wound to the chest after being rushed to the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton.

Man Arrested After Bringing Meth To Police Station To Have It Tested By Cops

ONLY IN FLORIDA

A man concerned that he had been rooked by a methamphetamine dealer contacted Florida police and asked them to test his drugs and “press charges” against the dealer if he had “been given the wrong narcotics,” according to an arrest report.

On Tuesday afternoon, Douglas Peter Kelly, 49, called the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and told a deputy that he had a “violent reaction” after smoking what he thought was “speed.” Kelly told cops that he believed that the drug in question was actually Flakka, the notorious synthetic stimulant.

After speaking with cops, Kelly drove to the sheriff’s office “because he wished to have the illegal narcotics tested.” Kelly subsequently provided cops with a piece of aluminum foil that contained a “clear, crystal-like substance.”

A field test of the substance provided by Kelly resulted in a “positive reaction for the presence of methamphetamine,” police reported. While perhaps relieved that his dealer was not cheating him, Kelly’s mood likely changed when police arrested him on a felony narcotics possession charge.

Seen above, Kelly was booked into the county jail, from which he was released last night after posting $2500 bond.
