Worried that her mother wasn't home, Ameleah decided to look for her, starting her mother's 1999 Lincoln Navigator. It backed down the sloped driveway and came to a stop on grass across the street. The girl dialed 911, explained the situation and asked for quick help getting the car back home, because she said her mom would be upset with her.
She didn't want to admit she was behind the wheel. The child told the dispatcher, "my mom's car backed out on accident." She then goes on to explain, "Because I know my mom is gonna be pissed at me." Officer Ryan Grimshaw said he responded to the house to find the SUV had rolled backwards out of the driveway, across the street and into a neighbour's yard.
The world's population is expected to hit seven billion in the next few weeks.

By now most people know about Marg "Princess Warrior" Delahunty a character played by Mary Walsh on the comedy-news-show This Hour Has 22 Minutes. She dresses up like a middle-aged housewife, who is, in turn, dressed as a warrior princess, who is, in turn, a political journalist. It actually works really well and has resulted in some of the best political reporting in Canadian history. She has been doing this shtick for almost 20 years.
She tends to catch politicians by surprise, babbles on for 30 seconds and then runs back to the studio. In most cases the politicians play along. Sometimes they are annoyed but try to hide it. But no one ever reacted like Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
Was he ambushed? I guess so. By a 60-year old comedian in a ridiculous outfit. Was she off base by coming to his home? Perhaps. Was he afraid for his life? Absolutely not. In fact it was obvious that he was angry.
The problem is how he reacted after the encounter. He actually ran into the house and called 911. He then called back 10 minute later when police failed to show up and screamed obscenities at the dispatcher. Meanwhile the TV crew was long gone.
I'm sorry there just is no excuse for this type of behaviour.
A topless and drunken woman led police on a car chase along route 422 at speeds of up to 128 mph before surrendering to officers.
Erin B. Holdsworth, 28, of Hiram, Ohio, was found to be wearing only fishnet stockings, a g-string and high heels when she was arrested in Auburn Township.
Officers used stingers along the highway to disable two of Holdsworth's tyres and she was forced to pull over on the side of the road a short time later.
When they approached her vehicle, the nearly-naked woman got out and staggered across the road before she was handcuffed.
A man was charged with false reporting when he called in a robbery to Colorado Springs police, after his girlfriend and a Craig's List acquaintance arrived at his apartment at the same time.
At 3:13 a.m., officers were called to the Village Seven four-plex at 4995 Picturesque Circle, on a report of a burglary in progress, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department's blotter.
Five officers arrived at the apartment, where 24-year-old Kevin Gaylor, a resident at the complex, reported the robbery.
Shortly after arriving, police learned of Gaylor's ruse.
A Denver woman, who had only just met Gaylor on Craig's List, was coming to visit Gaylor at his apartment when Gaylor's girlfriend unexpectedly arrived home.
When the woman arrived, Gaylor called police and reported the attempted robbery.
Gaylor was taken into custody and later released. He was charged with false reporting to authorities, a misdemeanor.
Nice try Kevin. Robbers don't typically show up wearing lingerie and furry handcuffs. Though if you didn't get laid for the $200 stuffed in her bra then maybe you did get robbed.
An New York man who calls himself Mister PeePee has dedicated himself to exploring the unlimited erotic potential of the Starbucks bathroom. This gentleman has made a podcast (since removed) describing his mission to masturbate in every Starbucks bathroom in New York City, and rate the results. That's over 298 jerk offs! I have a friend who plans to watch a game in every NHL arena. How different is this? I'm always going to wonder about the frothed milk at Starbucks.

Even though their parents are picketing the court house to get them back, 5-year-old Adolf Hitler and his three-year-old sister Aryan Nation are still in foster care after being taken away from their parents last year.
Heath and Deborah Campbell had their children taken away from them because a family court in New Jersey found there was evidence they'd been abused or neglected. The parents, who are now actively seeking their return by goosestepping in front of the courthouse, say they were taken away only because of their names. I'm sorry, but isn't naming your kid Adolf Hitler Campbell a form of abuse? Anyway, it's been 33 months and the kids seem to be doing fine.
I hear the kids exhibit a fondness for Wagner and lederhosen.
A convicted sex offender admitted he kissed and fondled a cardboard cutout of a woman, which was part of a North Street pharmacy's advertising display. Charlie J. Price, 57, of Pittsfield, pleaded guilty to a single count of disturbing the peace, subsequent offense, and was ordered to pay a $200 fine by Central Berkshire District Court Judge Fredric D. Rutberg.
Saturday around 5 p.m., Price, who was allegedly intoxicated, walked into the Rite Aid pharmacy, "grabbed hold of the sunglass display, hugged it tightly and then began to lick and kiss the face of the female party on the display," according to a Pittsfield Police report.
This behavior lasted about a minute, according to police, and ended when Price fell to the floor. He eventually got back on his feet and began yelling and screaming, according to the police report. Meanwhile, Price's behavior apparently scared customers who "actively" tried to get away from the area. Price was arrested by the Pittsfield Police.
Nothing more disgusting then a lewd cardboard cutout. I'm pretty sure this guy has a strong defense based on entrapment. Come on you know she really wanted it.
Georgia police are hunting for the aggrieved Taco Bell customer who threw a Molotov cocktail at the restaurant’s drive-thru window after phoning in a complaint that there was not enough meat in the chalupas he had purchased.
The bizarre incident occurred around 5 AM Sunday at a Taco Bell. Taco Bell manager Cynthia Thompson told cops that, shortly before the firebombing, a man called the restaurant to complain about a reported meat shortage in his “two XL Chalupas.”
The caller told Thompson that “after getting home realized that there was not enough stuffing inside of his chalupas, and demanded his order be corrected.” When Thompson explained that she “could not accommodate him because the business was closing,” the man replied, “You must be one of them niggers up there.” He added, “That’s alright, I’ll just come and redecorate the place.” Thompson said that shortly after the call she and other Taco Bell employees “could smell gasoline but was unaware of where it was coming from. They then realized the fire outside of the drive thru window.”
Investigators found the makeshift incendiary device–a “melting plastic bottle with a liquid substance still inside”–outside the Taco Bell, where a large sign beckons patrons to “Come Try The New XXL Chalupa. Bigger Is Better.”
Come on, would the world come to an end because there was one less Taco Bell restaurant. No big deal. To be honest the only time I ever went into a Taco Bell was to use the restroom and I regretted even doing that.
A would-be car thief was stalled in his tracks Sunday afternoon after a failed attempt at stealing a Corvette.
The Prince George RCMP responded to a male with an axe attempting take the car from a driveway on Francois Crescent.
The owner of the Corvette had just finished charging the battery and was putting the battery charger in the garage when a male jumped in the running car, locked the power door locks, closed the power windows and attempted to drive away.
However, he was foiled by the standard transmission and the vehicle stalled as he reversed out of the driveway. Since the car battery wasn't fully charged, it died and the thief could not restart the car. The dead battery also meant he could not activate the power door locks or windows and was trapped inside the Corvette as the owner called 911 on the man who was brandishing a can of pepper spray.
The suspect unsuccessfully attempted to break the car window with the victim's anti-theft club before trying again to break out with with a hatchet he had in his backpack.
When police arrived on scene, the thief had resorted to attempting pry the window open with a screwdriver.
A Vallejo man was found in a child's swing on Saturday morning after reportedly being stuck for about nine hours, police said.
At about 6 a.m., a groundskeeper of Blue Rock Springs Park heard a man screaming when he arrived at work. He then called the police to investigate. Upon arrival, police found a 21-year-old man stuck in a child's swing, which has two leg holes.
The man told police that he had been stuck in the swing since 9 p.m. on Friday after he allegedly made a $100 bet with his friends. He proceeded to lube himself with laundry detergent to get into the swing. The friends then reportedly left him swinging through the night.
Vallejo firefighters then were called to rescue him by cutting the swing chains off. He was then transported to Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center, where firefighters used a cast cutter to cut the swing off his body, firefighters said.
No doubt this was worth $100. Hopefully he will walk again.
There is a fair amount of turbulence at Queens Park these days with the revelation that Conservative MPP Frank Klees was putting his name forward for consideration as the Legislature’s Speaker. Having an Opposition member serve as Speaker is not a unique occurrence with minority governments. Stephen Harper’s minority governments used Liberal Peter Milliken as Speaker. In Ontario Bill Davis’ minority government used NDP Jack Stokes as Speaker in 1977.
With the Ontario Opposition parties holding only a one seat advantage over the Liberal government, both the NDP and PCs had indicated that there would be no candidates from their caucus. Their intention was clear, they wanted the Speaker to be a Liberal thus preserving the seat advantage to the Opposition. Except Frank Klees has other plans.
The reaction from the PC caucus has been strong and some members have accused Klees of crossing the floor. I guess that’s technically incorrect. He would still be in the PC caucus although maybe not very welcome. The Speaker does not vote in the Legislature with the exception of when there is a tie. However, Speakers are expected to vote for the status quo which means he will only be voting with the Liberals which explains why he would be treated as a floor-crosser. Logistically it is rare that every member in the Legislature is available for every vote so tie votes will not be as common as you might think. But that single lost potential vote will have an impact on the Legislature. There is no avoiding it.
So why is this happening? Why would Frank Klees abandon his party for the Speaker post?
It’s a coveted position many MPPs would dream of holding. The Speakers receives a lot of perks, gets to meet with foreign visitors and travels to other legislatures. Klees will also get a pay bump of thousands of dollars, have access to an apartment in Queen’s Park, a larger staff and a nice office. The option might be an especially appealing one for Klees, who was passed over for party leader. While the prospect of holding two prominent shadow cabinet positions, as offered by Tim Hudak, would look appealing to another MPP, it’s not as good a role as the Speaker. Klees is 60 years old and a 16-year veteran of the Legislature.
This is likely his last tenure in the Legislature and he likely thinking more about himself than his party.

A highly regarded scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta has been arrested over allegations of bestiality and child molestation. The woman's night watchman boyfriend is also facing charges, police said.Dr. Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, 44, of Decatur, was arrested in DeKalb County Sunday after a six-week investigation into allegations she molested a young boy. Lindsey has been arrested and charged with two counts of child molestation and one count of bestiality.
Investigators allegedly found photographs of Lindsey performing lewd acts on two pets.
The alleged sex acts involving the child took place between January 2010 and August 2011. The child would allegedly spank Lindsey and use an electric sex toy on her.
Lindsey holds a doctoral degree in immunology and molecular pathogenesis from Emory University and a bachelor's degree in molecular biology from the University of Central Florida. Lindsey serves as the deputy director for the Laboratory Science Policy and Practice Program Office at the CDC.
I will never be able to look at a scientist in white lab coat again without smirking. Is he/she a pervert?
It was almost eerie how he had predicted his error prior to that infamous game. But it was well known that his legs were shot and his manager had begun pulling from games in late innings for defensive reasons.
How famous is Buckner? On “Curb Your Enthusiasm” this season, Larry David loses a softball game when a ball rolls between his legs; his coach screams, “You Buckner-ed me!”
But Buckner’s error did not lose the championship for the Red Sox; it didn’t even lose Game 6 for them — the Red Sox had already blown their two-run lead. Two nights later, with another chance at the ring, Boston lost 8-5.
There is a perception that Buckner was hated by Red Sox fans but the truth is he was and remains a very popular athlete in Boston. The ovation he received to open the 2008 season is a testament to his popularity.
The post covered a story reported in the media about a 12 year old girl playing boys hockey who was driven from the team by a parent who organized a team meeting behind the backs of the coaches to discuss the play of the girl.
The story seemed to have struck a nerve based on the comments posted.
Here's to you George Atis.

Fans of MTV's "Jersey Shore" can get a firsthand look at the gym-tan-laundry lifestyle by renting the house where the reality series is taped.
Just bring $2,500 a night and your own drama.OK what the hell is “the duck phone” and “the Smush Room?” I guess you need to be a fan. My advice is bring your own sheets. Those people are gross.
A blogger and co-founder of the website Feministe recently flew from Newark to Dublin, and upon arrival found a very special personalized message from the TSA in her suitcase. When she unpacked her bag she discovered a note scrawled on the official form from the TSA informing her that her bag had been inspected. "GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL," it read.
She believes the personalized message has something to do with the contents of her suitcase, which included a silver bullet vibrator from Babeland. She brought that particular device "specifically because she figured it wouldn’t raise any red flags at TSA." Flags no, but something seems to have been raised.
It seems there a lot of men in their 40s who still fantasize about Phoebe.

The Deseret News reports:
"The cops were yelling, 'Make a hole! Make a hole!' But the coaches, the players, family members were saying, 'It's OK. It's OK, Let them do it,'" [a witness named Breana] said.
Witnesses say police didn't listen. Instead they began spraying the crowd of performers, players and fans with pepper spray.
"It was continual spraying and spraying," Breana said.
She said her husband was hit in the face with a police baton and sprayed with the pepper spray. Her 4-year-old son was also exposed to the spray, Breana said.
