    When a group of students protesting the Ferguson grand jury decision shut down Interstate 5 during Wednesday morning rush hour, thousands of people became late for work. Some got out of their cars to watch the protesters, while others simply waited for police. But one man angrily confronted them, stealing a protester's bullhorn to shout back a message of his own. Now, video of the man's rant has gone viral, with some calling him a "hero" for standing up to the protesters. "I gotta go to Ross right now, homie," Tyree Landrum told ABC 10News San Diego in the video....

    Michael Arrington is a prominent tech blogger, who sold his site Tech Crunch to AOL in 2010. As such, this particular story of government overreach, starring a gleeful bureaucrat taking the property of a citizen operating in good faith, may get a wider audience than the usual conservatives and libertarians who catch wind of such things. Good. For every story that gets attention, there are countless abuses that don’t. The story starts with Arrington buying himself a boat. He lives in Seattle, where there’s much boating to be done. Having paid for the boat, named her, and had her imported...

    A airplane passenger stole $238,000 during a flight in the Caribbean by sneaking into the cargo hold that was loaded with cash through the bathroom. The unnamed man complained of feeling unwell at the start of the flight and spent most of it in the bathroom. He was, in fact, removing panels separating the toilet and the cargo hold, according to reports. A Brink's security employee had placed three sacks of cash containing a total $1.6million in the hold of the Air Antilles plane before it took off from the French island of Guadeloupe, Fox News reported. {snip}

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. -- A 400-pound black bear broke into a Seminole County home, rummaged through the freezer, and stole a pork roast and ice pops. WFTV talked to the homeowner who said she came face-to-face with the bear. Residents living along the edge of the Ocala National Forest are use to peace and quiet. But for Charlotte Rooney, that all changed one day last week. "At 5:30 in the morning, it was quite shocking," Rooney said. "What was it like to be nose-to-nose with him?" WFTV reporter Berndt Petersen asked. "Terrifying. It really was," she replied. "I haven't been...

    A circus lion called Caesar was fighting fit again on Thursday after an ordeal that saw the van he was being transported in stolen in Germany by an unwitting thief, his keepers said. The Mercedes Transporter containing Circus Probst's ferocious five-year-old feline star was recovered in the early hours of Wednesday morning in Wuppertal in western Germany after crashing into a road sign, police said. Hours earlier it had been stolen from among the circus's other vehicles, with the thief, who remains on the loose, apparently unaware of the nature of his stolen cargo. It was unknown whether the thief...

    ZACHARY, LOUISIANA (WAFB) - Zachary police say surveillance video shows a woman steal a 12-pack of beer from a small grocery store by putting it between her legs and waddling away. She is also suspected of shoving several cans of soda into her top. The Miller Light and soft drinks were taken from the Cross Roads Grocery on August 2. "It's just amazing how people go this far to steal," said David McDavid with the police department. "It just doesn't make sense." However, this "beer between the legs" bandit apparently didn't work alone. The video also shows a man try...

    LOS ANGELES -- The U.S. Constitution prevents California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger from becoming President of the United States. But it doesn't stop him from being an ex-President -- or, rather, acting like one. Schwarzenegger has already graced the covers of America's major news magazines -- more the domain of heads of state than heads of states. Speculation is that, because Schwarzenegger can't run for another term as Governor in 2010, he'll move to take on the Democratic incumbent U.S. Senator, Barbara Boxer, instead. I'm not so sure. First of all, there's the reality that Arnold might not win. After all,...

    SOUTH BEND -- Santa Claus is not being dispatched from the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. And people shouldn't give donations to a possible rogue Santa telling people he has been sent by the food bank. Nick Dalton, interim president and chief executive officer of the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, said he took a call from an angry local business owner earlier this week. The business owner, whom Dalton did not name, was upset because a Santa, who said he was from the food bank, did not show up for a scheduled event at his business, Dalton said. The...

    ARDMORE, Pa. - Where do you hide a $729,000 Ferrari during rush hour? That's what police in the Philadelphia suburbs want to know, after a con man drove off with a red Ferrari F50 during a test drive. The Ferrari F50 - which can hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and tops out at 203 mph - hasn't been seen since. Police theorize it was hustled into a trailer and quickly shipped overseas for sale on the black market. The company made just 349 of the eye-popping Italian roadsters - described by one car-enthusiast Web site as "part...
