WARNING: Unicorn crossing

Instead of chasing a white Bronco, police in California found themselves chasing a white unicorn Wednesday night.

Sandra Boos, a photographer in Fresno, California, was conducting a photoshoot with her daughter’s pony, Juliet, when she managed to pull away from her lead rope and ran off.

Juliet, who is often dressed up as a unicorn to pose in pictures, was on the loose for three hours before she was finally led into a horse trailer and taken home.

Figaro, Figaro, Figar-OH GOD DON’T SHOOT

A man called police in Amsterdam, Netherlands saying he could hear a man screaming in agony from inside a house.

Turns out, he just didn’t appreciate opera.

When police kicked in the front door of the house after receiving no response to their knocking, they found a local opera singer inside singing along to a song while wearing headphones.

According to police, everyone involved had a laugh over the incident, but no comment was made on how bad the singing was to be mistaken for screams of agony.


“World’s Fastest Stoner” doesn’t have blazing speed

The self proclaimed “World’s Fastest Stoner” finished with a time of 3:45:34 in the trials for the 2016 Rio Olympics, good enough for him to finish in last place.

Chris Barnicle, a professional runner who claims that eating marijuana edibles has benefited his running, finished 105th out of 105 runners—more than an hour and a half after the winning time at the trials.

Barnicle finished more than 30 minutes after the last-place finisher from the women competitors—who had recently had multiple rib surgeries and finished the race despite still suffering from rib pain, abdominal spasms and nausea.

Cash, crystal meth and crocs

During a recent raid in Amsterdam, Netherlands, police found themselves face to face with a pair of guard crocodiles.

Police raided six houses in Amsterdam and one house in neighboring Almere when they found the crocodiles guarding a large stash of cash. The raids ended up producing €500,000 worth of crystal meth, €300,000 in cash and several firearms, and nine men and two women were taken into custody.

A police spokesperson said the owner of the crocodiles had the appropriate permits and was following the law in regards to possessing the crocodiles. The spokesperson said the crocodiles are not being moved and someone is periodically visiting the house to feed them.


Speeding ticket: $180. Fighting the ticket in court to prove you didn’t do it? $71,000

After growing up in Iraq and dealing with government and police corruption, Mustafa Al Shakarji immigrated to Australia in 2002 where he could be free to stand up and speak out.

He has decided to do so by spending more than $71,000 fighting a $180 ticket he received four years ago.

Al Shakarji received the ticket in March 2012 when police say he was traveling almost 30 kilometers per hour over the speed limit. He has since spent the last four years fighting his case at five different hearings, arguing that the police officer had his radar improperly installed which caused a misreading of his speed.

Despite his family saying it is crazy the amount of time and money he has spent fighting the ticket, Al Shakarji says he will continue to fight the ticket and he is willing to take the case all the way to Australia’s High Court.
