“Hey buddy. Sorry to see you stuck in the snow. Would you like some help?” Okay, so that’s not quite how it went down. Per the Paterson Press (via northjersey.com):

In two cases that authorities believe are linked, men offering to help drivers struck in the snow then robbed the stranded motorists at gunpoint early Thursday morning, police said.

That is just cold.

Nobody likes a noisy neighbor. What if you lived next to a bar that cranked out music – outside – from 9 p.m. – 3 a.m., from 5 speakers, nonstop? Such was the fate of some folks in Barcelona, Spain. As reported at canada.com:

A court in Barcelona said three persons living near the city’s Donegal pub “developed depressive anxiety syndrome that needed medical treatment” due to the noise …

Isn’t the goal of recycling to recycle as much as you can, thus reducing our consumption of the resources that go into making the discarded items, and reducing the amount of trash that goes into landfills? So while it may not result in the greatest yard sale, more power to this gent. As reported by The Northwest Florida Daily News:

Police were called on May 26 for reports of a man going through garbage cans.

A woman called police around 3 a.m. on May 26 to report that a man was going through her neighbor’s garbage, according to the call log. She thought it was strange and wanted a Niceville Police officer to figure out why he was going through the garbage.

A Brentwood homeowners association is threatening to sue a family if they don’t take down a wheelchair ramp in the next week.

After Michael Broadnax suffered a stroke late last summer, his wife became the head of the household.

This so strange, you probably just assumed it happened in Florida.  Alas, this odd series of events took place in Ireland. As reported by The Irish Times:

The Irish Prison Service is investigating how the man, who is serving three and half years for producing an article during the course of a dispute, managed to gain access to the roof area of a building in the Mountjoy Prison Campus.

There are many times when you just say “yes sir” or “yes ma’am” or, and especially “yes, your honor.” And even if you’re not going to be polite, it’s just not a good idea to go all the way to the other end of the spectrum, as this gent in New Mexico found out. As reported by krqe.com (Albuquerque, New Mexico):

A man already facing an aggravated assault charge for allegedly attacking a bus driver got himself into even more trouble when he tried to talk tough to a judge Saturday.

So what brought this gent to court?

File this under “strange shoplifters.” Why would you steal a fraction of the amount of the merchandise you paid for? You’ll find this woman’s explanation interesting. From the Moultrie News Police Blotter:

A woman went into a local department store and purchased over $700’s worth of items, but not the two pairs of earrings she allegedly unpackaged and shoved in her pocket – valued at $98.

And because of that, she was taken to jail for shoplifting and put on trespass notice.

Nobody can argue that the internet has dramatically changed the world. Some folks, though, turn to it when they ought to just do things the old-fashioned way. For example, there’s this woman in Santa Fe, Texas, as reported by kwtx.com …

Police in Santa Fe in Southeast Texas say the mother of a 14-year-old boy who was shot in the leg in a videotaped incident didn’t seek help for her injured son for seven hours while researching gunshot wounds online.

Say what?

You’re thinking this guy must have been drunk or stoned. Apparently not! As reported at myfoxal.com:

Authorities said a man was arrested for dancing on top of a law enforcement SUV because the man said he was dancing to keep vampires away.
