If you’re on the run, don’t ‘like’ the enforcement agencies that are after you:

“A registered sex offender was arrested in Bluefield, Va. earlier this year after an unfortunate “liking” incident gave away his location.Dyllan Naecher, 29, fled to Virginia after he became wanted in the state of Maryland. In an attempt to keep a close eye on the local police force, Naecher’s girlfriend, 22-year-old Samantha Dillow, “liked” the Tazewell Police Department’s Facebook page. The “like” gave police direct access to her account, which conveniently included a picture of Naecher. After a bit more digging, Tazewell officers found the pair’s address and¬†arrested both¬†the next day.”

What a cock.

“Twenty-year-old Michael Baker, from Jenkins, Ky., was jailed after he posted a photo of himself on Facebook siphoning gas from a local police vehicle.

The photo shows Jenkins flipping the bird while swiping fuel from a Jenkins Police Department squad car. The photo circulated through the town of 2,000, and before long, Jenkins was charged with theft for unlawful tanking and spent the night in the slammer.

The incident didn’t seem to embarrass him or deter his Facebook habit. After he was released, he posted this on his page: “yea lol i went too [sic] jail over facebook.”

The Herald:

Looks like a trend is beginning to appear: South Island, alcohol and dickheads.

¬†“A drunk driver who crashed his car while eating a plate of pork chops has been sentenced to community service.

While police argued that Westport man Robert Pomare, 37, was eating ribs when he crashed on November 7, Pomare told Westport District Court it was actually a plate of chops.

Police prosecutor Steven Greer said Pomare had been drinking at the Black and White Hotel before driving to a local restaurant and picking up a plate of pork ribs. As he was eating his ribs, he failed to give way to a vehicle driven by a pregnant woman and hit it.”

But here comes the winning line from his lawyer:

“Defence lawyer Mark Dollimore said Pomare had accepted the description of events but said he’d been eating pork chops rather than ribs.

He stayed put after the accident, apologised, checked to see if everybody was all right and waited for police.

He had already been fined $150 for failing to give way.

Judge Rob Murfitt noted Pomare had three previous convictions for drink-driving.

He sentenced him to 200 hours’ community work, nine month’s supervision and suspended his licence for a year and a day.”

Pork ribs, pork chops, whatever. At least he wasn’t eating sausage behind the wheel.

There’s been no shortage of numb skulls lately, and the following tool from the deep south is no exception.

“A 52-year-old man lay in the middle of Bluff Highway while highly intoxicated early this morning, telling police he had fallen into a creek and sat on the road because it was warm.

Steven Douglas Thomson appeared before Judge Phil Moran this morning in Invercargill District Court for committing a criminal nuisance by doing an unlawful act, namely lying on State Highway 1, knowing such an act would endanger the lives of the public. He was convicted and discharged.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Rob Mills said a member of the public called police after she drove off a side street on to Bluff Highway at 2.15am and narrowly missed crashing into Thomson, who was sitting in the middle of the road.

The woman then watched him lie down on the road and begin rolling in the middle of the south-bound lane, Mr Mills said.”

A warm road….in Southland….at 2am. How he cheated the process of natural selection is anyone’s guess.

This is taking an interest in something to obsession like levels.

A British woman has changed her name by deed poll to become officially known by the combined monikers of 14 Bond girls.

The barmaid, formerly Emma-Louise Hodges, 28, is now “Miss Pussy Galore Honey Rider Solitaire Plenty O’Toole May Day Xenia Onatopp Holly Goodhead Tiffany Case Kissy Suzuki Mary Goodnight Jinx Johnson Octopussy Domino Moneypenny”.

Quite a mouthful, reports British tabloid The Sun.

As the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, is released in Britain, the brunette love interest wannabe spoke of her decision to change names.

“I’ve always thought how great it would be to be a Bond girl – and now I am,” Miss Moneypenny said.
