No need for a sobriety checkpoint. This Florida woman gets a huge assist in her own arrest, as reported by wtsp.com:
A Tampa Bay-area woman faces several charges after authorities say she passed out while she and three children waited at a Burger King drive-thru.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reports that employees called authorities Tuesday night after watching 27-year-old April A. Musson fall asleep in her car. Children — ages 1, 3 and 5 — were also in the vehicle.
Why so sleepy? The sheriff’s office says deputies found an oxycodone pill and marijuana on Musson, and she told them she had smoked marijuana earlier that day.
Here’s the source, including a photo of Ms. Musson.
Without Johnny Law, there would be chaos, right? In this situation, Johnny Law needs to step off. In the Australian city of Whitehorse, little children drawing with chalk in front of a cafe have been deemed to be … taggers! As reported by The Whitehorse Leader:

THEY MUST BE STOPPED.
Who knew what “flex” was? Maybe you hipsters, but not The Juice. Anyway, it would seem that one can make some serious jack selling the stuff. As reported by Creative Loafing Atlanta:
Around 2 p.m., police responded to a silent panic alarm at an Armour Drive apartment, and a 30-year-old man came to the door. An officer wrote in his report, “It appeared that [he] was hiding something and attempted to place something in his right pants pocket.” Turns out he was hiding stuff pretty much everywhere. After picking up a search warrant and a drug dog, police reportedly found $20,879 in cash on the kitchen counter, more than $16,000 cash in the right kitchen drawer and $3,954 cash in the left kitchen drawer.
The dog moved to the hallway, and found $32,171 in a computer desk, three bags in a closet stuffed with more than $93,000 cash, a Gucci bag filled with $9,394, and 12 grams of white powdery stuff. The man told police he sells flex, aka fake drugs. An initial test on the powder came back negative. Police gathered up the white stuff and sent it to a lab for more tests.
Total cash police say they found in the apartment: $295,583.
The action starts 22 seconds in.
A man was arrested after he locked his girlfriend in a shed and threw cottage cheese at her.

Even though McDonald’s has sold over 100 billion burgers (can you feel your arteries clogging?), a restaurant named “McCurry” (Malaysian Chicken Curry) would not be intimidated. As reported by the BBC News:
The American fast-food giant McDonald’s has lost an eight-year legal battle to prevent a Malaysian restaurant calling itself McCurry.
Talk about David vs. Goliath.
McCurry opened for business in Kuala Lumpur in 1999, and serves Indian dishes, including fish head curry and breads including tandoori naan.
So it was McDonald’s (with over 30,000 “restaurants” worldwide, including 180 in Malaysia) against 1 McCurry. With the end of the litigation, McCurry looks to change that.
“We can now go ahead with whatever we plan to do such as opening new branches,” [McCurry owner P Suppiah] said.

Who doesn’t want a Land Rover? Even if you are going to steal one, clearly this is not the best way to go about it. As reported by FloridaToday.com:
A 24-year-old man is in jail today after sheriff’s investigators said he broke into a car dealership, drove through two sets of bay doors and crashed into 11 vehicles on the lot.
Travis Stone was charged with burglary, grand theft auto and 11 separate counts of criminal mischief in connection with the break-in that left behind $30,000 in damage to the Island Lincoln Mercury dealership at 1850 Merritt Island Causeway.
Now this might surprise you …
“He was highly intoxicated. He told us that he didn’t remember how he got into the dealership but he remembers driving through the bay doors,” said Agent Craig Carson of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators said Stone got into the garage and drove off with a 2000 Land Rover that was in the dealership for repairs. Investigators said Stone then drove through locked bay doors, damaging the building in the process.
Deputies spotted the Land Rover and attempted to stop the vehicle. Stone was arrested after a short foot pursuit, investigators said.
