Drunk driver gets pulled over, 'did you find my weed?'

Craig Shelton, whom the Florida Highway Patrol says it pulled over Saturday at 1:09 a.m. after he was seen driving erratically. When Shelton did pull over, here's what happened next:

Shelton tossed his keys into the pickup bed.

The trooper asked for his driver's license.

Shelton said he didn't have one.

Was it suspended? Yes, Shelton said.

Shelton agreed to perform field-sobriety exercises - but gave up before the first test.

"Just call it a DUI man," he said. "You got me."

Inside the truck the trooper said he found two cold Bud Lights - one open - an empty bottle of Bacardi and a "green leafy substance."

Handcuffed, sitting in the back of the FHP cruiser, Shelton then asked: "Did you find my weed?"

Shelton, 38, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, driving with a suspended or revoked license and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. He refused to take a Breathalyzer test. Article here.

'Rent-a-Wife' company now open for business

Dawn Haney has advertised her "Rent-a-Wife" business for about two weeks now, and it's getting some nibbles, not always the ones she wants.

Four responses rendered two clients for Haney, who says she will do housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, windows, errands, help with bookkeeping and be a party hostess for single men.

Asked how far her wifely chores go, she said, in effect, "not that far," that the business is legit. "A gentleman wants me to come fold his laundry, do some odds and ends and he said he wants me to kill some bugs and bacteria," she said with a laugh.

In July she opened a commercial cleaning business in which she and her son clean businesses, homes managed by property management companies and new construction sites.

Robert Holland, who owns Holland Capital Management in Grants Pass with his wife, Denise, has contracted with Haney for two months. "She's great," he said. "When she showed us her new (Rent-a-Wife business) card, we both laughed and said it would attract attention. But we think (the business) is a good idea. There are a lot of men out there who could use help."

She also thinks single men might appreciate returning from work to a home-cooked meal. Her offers include spaghetti, lasagna, mushroom soup over pork chops and cream cheese cherry pie. Article here.

14-year-old says the 'new trend' is getting pregnant

The newest fashion among schoolgirls is getting knocked up, according to one pregnant 14-year-old whose four friends are also expecting.

British teen Kizzy Neal says she's been approached for advice from other pregnant girls her age ever since she conceived, reported London's Daily Mail.
"When my friends see my bump they say they wish they could have a baby, then three weeks later they're pregnant and don't know what to do," Neal said.

"It seems to be fashionable to get pregnant. ... Teenage girls think babies are cute, but they forget the physical side of being pregnant, then having to give up your own childhood to look after a baby," she told the paper.

Neal says she got pregnant the first time she had sex with her 13-year-old boyfriend. Family campaigners say her comments show how current sex education policies leave teens with the "ridiculous but extremely worrying" idea that having a child is comparable to buying a new handbag. Article here.

14-year-old breaks teachers neck over an iPod

Two students accused of attacking a teacher in a hallway of Germantown High School on Friday morning are now behind bars. The attack happened after 60-year-old Frank Burd confiscated an iPod from one of the students who was using it in class. The 14-year-old returned later with an 11th grader.

The teens allegedly pushed Burd, who struck his head on a locker. Schools CEO Paul Vallas said Burd broke his neck in two places. He was taken to Einstein Medical Center, but showed no sign of paralysis.

The confrontation was caught on videotape. School officials were able to use the tape to immediately identify the students.

17-year-old Donte Boykin was taken to Northwest Detectives in handcuffs on Friday evening, shortly after arresting the 14-year-old. School officials say the kids were in the process of being expelled again when they assaulted Burd. Article here.
