    "Zombie" attacks continue: Naked man arrested after biting Fla. man Despite assurances from the CDC that zombies do not, in fact, exist, strange things keep happening in Florida. The Center for Disease Control says we have no reason to fear a zombie virus. But that hasn't stopped a series of strange events, including one in which Rudy Eugene brutally attacked a homeless man, biting off chunks of his face. Perhaps 22-year-old Jeremiah Haughee found Eugene to be an inspirational figure. That's our best guess for why he was climbed naked onto the roof of a St. Augustine, Fla., home, bit...

    Man Ordered to Dance “Moonwalk” at Gunpoint, Police Say Just remember always to think twice before ordering someone to dance the “moonwalk” at the barrel of a gun. An Idaho man has been hit with a felony assault charge for allegedly forcing another man to perform Michael Jackson’s signature “moonwalk” while having a rifle pointed at him, the Bonner County Daily Bee reported. Police accused John Ernest Cross, 30, of using an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle while issuing the bizarre order to mimic a dance the late King of Pop debuted back in 1983. Cross said during an initial court appearance...

    I’m Batman … Getting Pulled Over In A Lamborghini Batman drives the Batmobile when he's Batman and, as we've learned, he typically drives a Lamborghini when he's Bruce Wayne. Unfortunately, Bruce Wayne forgot to put a license plate on his Lamborghini Gallardo and went out while still dressed as Batman. Silly, silly Batman. You're not Steve Jobs. You can't get away with that. UPDATE! We've unmasked the Batman Here's what they said: "Yes, Batman was stopped by MCPD on Wednesday,S/B Route 29 at Prelude Dr. for no tags on Batmobile" His repeated attempts to use the Bat Signal as a...

    According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, two homeowners were burglarized in a Jacksonville neighborhood on Tuesday. But an alert witness saw a man coming from his neighbor's yard who he thought didn't belong, according to a police statement. He called police, then took a picture of the man with his camera phone, reports First Coast News in Jacksonville. It looks as though the suspect cooperatively posed for the photo opportunity. He stole a hat and wore it, stole some snacks and ate them, before he paused briefly for the picture, reports First Coast News. In addition to the Cheez-Its and...

    Iliu Gonzalez and Adrian Alonso just wanted to steal a kiss Most people break into homes to steal high-end electronics, cash, some Vicodin if it's handy. Iliu Gonzalez and Adrian Alonso?

A neighbor called police, and when officers arrived, they saw Alonso and Gonzalez, both 24, lying on the floor. Both were arrested, charged with criminal mischief and burglary and they were booked into jail. Ah, forbidden love. It's just...

    Well, it turns out being a pancake could be hazardous to your health here in Bellingham… or at least, dressing up as a pancake, and standing outside a local IHOP Restaurant. Bellingham police spokesperson Mark Young said a man Tuesday afternoon assaulted a 19-year-old woman dressed as ‘Suzie the Pancake’ outside the IHOP just off Samish Way on Byron Street. “She was out there waving to customers as they would drive by,” said Young. “The 19-year-old victim was approached by a 22-year-old suspect who initially just started yelling, and at one point went ahead and started slapping at the pancake.”...

    WATERVILLE — A culinary argument between a brother and sister about whether to use butter or margarine turned violent, resulting in an attack with a knife-edged barbecue spatula, police say. A 21-year-old man called East Wenatchee police on June 6 to say his 17-year-old sister had just attacked him and tried to cut his neck with the serrated edge of the spatula, wrote Officer Carrie Knouf in a police report filed in Douglas County Superior Court. The sister told Knouf she was making macaroni and cheese when her brother asked if she was using butter. “They began to argue over...

    I was involved in a very minor fender bender on 94 West in Milwaukee on Friday. The responding officer took down my driver's license information (even though I was a passenger) and statement (the other car drove off and I gave a partial plate) Today I get 7 mailings from 6 different law firms about my accident, my friend who was the driver received 8 mailings. As the Milwaukee Sheriff's Department is the only entity that knows about it, they must have sold my information to the law firms in the area. Can they do this? I also gave my...

    The Eye has it Editor makes Arcata police blotter pure poetry -- and parody Peter Fimrite, Chronicle Staff Writer Arcata, Humboldt County -- To Kevin Hoover, even a nondescript telephone pole on a normally quiet street in amiable little Arcata has a story behind it. And the wry 48-year-old editor, publisher and police-blotter poet for the weekly Arcata Eye never lets a good yarn go untold. In this instance, the tale involved a curmudgeon who made a habit of tearing flyers off utility poles. His diligence was punished with a sort of purgatory -- he was forced to perpetually rip...
