Dad puts his kids in the dryer for punishment, WTF?

A man accused of putting two young children in a clothes dryer will be sent to Larned State Security Hospital after being found incompetent to stand trial.

Aron Pritchard, 27, was charged with a single count of child abuse and another count of endangering a child after he placed a 3-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl in a clothes dryer.


Prosecutors allege Pritchard put the children in the hot dryer to punish them for wetting their pants. The boy was treated for second-degree burns but the girl was not injured.

Pritchard maintains that he was giving the children rides in the dryer, and said he even put pillows inside the machine to cushion the children. Full article here.

Entire highway is coated with red dye for 3 miles

"I thought it was blood at first -- then I almost slid into the big metal canister that was oozing orange stuff," Stirk said. She was driving home to Lowell from Leominster late Tuesday night, when she became stuck in the mess.

A tractor-trailer carrying containers of dye used to color bark mulch lost part of its cargo at about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday after the load shifted.
The containers ruptured, creating a traffic nightmare for yesterday's morning commute and leaving motorists wondering whether the red substance was dangerous to themselves or their vehicles.

The crimson-colored liquid initially coated about 1,500 feet of roadway, spreading at least three miles north. Yesterday at noon, the road was still covered in dye, making it difficult to see marked lanes.
The dye is typically made from rust (iron oxide), and is considered nontoxic, said Myles Hogan, owner of Community Tree Service in Chelmsford. Full article here.

Dude dreams phone number, sends text message, then marriage?

A British man has met and married a 22-year-old woman after, by his own account, dreaming of her phone number and then sending her a text message.

David Brown, 24, says he woke up one morning after a night out with friends with a telephone number constantly running through his head. He decided to contact it, sending a message saying "Did I meet you last night?."

Random recipient Michelle Kitson was confused and wary at first but decided to reply and the two began exchanging messages. Eventually they met and fell in love.

"It was really weird but I was absolutely hooked," Kitson told the Daily Mail newspaper. "My mum and dad kept saying 'But he could be an axe murderer', but I knew there was something special about it."

After a long courtship, the oddly matched couple -- he's six foot seven inches tall and she's five foot four -- have just returned from their honeymoon in the Indian resort of Goa.

A love-struck Brown said: "I've no idea how I ended up with her number in my head -- it's only a few digits different from mine." Article here.

Dudes start a fire in Wal-Mart, then try to some steal beer

New surveillance video was released, Monday, showing a fire set inside an Orange County Wal-Mart. Investigators said the firestarters wanted to steal beer from the store very early Friday morning and tried to use the flames as a diversion.

When the fire alarm went off, two managers guarded the front door and the thieves walked out empty handed. The Fire Marshal's Office is hoping the public recognizes them.

When the store was packed, while the first suspect filled his cart up with beer at the Wal-Mart, his friend was on the lookout, casing the store. When the cart was loaded down with snacks and beer, suspect number one lifted his shirt and poured a bottle of STP octane booster on the popcorn isle. It's hard to see the flames, but fix shows him set the boxes on fire with a lighter.

The fire was supposed to be a diversion, so the crooks could score free beer and snacks, but Wal-Mart employees were guarding the exits as soon as the alarm went off. After lighting snacks on fire, putting lives at risk and causing $20,000 worth of damage, the guys walked out empty-handed. Full article here.

Dude turns in wrong driveway, then crashes through house

A man made a wrong turn early Tuesday morning and ended up giving some homeowners an unwelcome wake-up call. The 23-year-old driver, Christopher Pearson, soon realized that not only had he turned into the wrong driveway, but he had driven into somebody else's house.

Police got the call at 5:15 a.m. and arrived within five minutes to find Pearson's 1996 Monte Carlo sticking out of the house. "It was almost completely inside the residence," police Chief Randy Johnson said.

Pearson blamed the crash on mechanical failure. But police said the driver was drunk. "He blew twice the legal limit," Johnson said of the alcohol breath test. "So I would have to say that is what caused it." Full article here.
