Dude stabbed in the eye by girlfriend with chopstick

A Hong Kong woman who blinded her boyfriend in one eye in a fight six years ago has been jailed for jabbing a chopstick into his other eye, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Last November, Po Shiu-fong, 58, accused long-time boyfriend Kwok Wai-ming, 49, of having an affair, the South China Morning Post reported. During the row, Po stabbed a plastic chopstick into his left eye, which she had already blinded six years ago when she poked it with her finger.

"Po became hysterical when she saw the wound and mopped it with a towel. The pair then went to bed," the paper said. "The next morning they had another argument in which she grabbed a chopstick and stabbed Kwok's right eye," it said. » Article here

Dude assaults his girlfriend with firecracker.

A Chicago man was charged Thursday with using a firecracker to assault his girlfriend in Minnetonka after he became enraged over missing a bus.

Eric C. Gunn, 27, is accused of throwing a firecracker at the woman as she and others rode with him in a car to a bus station, where they had planned to drop him off Monday. Gunn had been driving his girlfriend's car Monday when he became angry because they were lost, which made him miss his bus to Chicago. Gunn stopped her car on an interstate in Minnetonka, got out, lit a firecracker and threw it at his girlfriend as she sat in the car. The firecracker burned her.

When they stopped at a gas station to ask for directions, the girlfriend called police. A Minnetonka police officer spotted the car traveling far under the posted speed limit. He stopped the driver, Gunn, for suspected drunken driving. His blood-alcohol content was .25 -- more than three times the legal limit. » Article here

College student accidentally given Paris Hilton’s old cell phone number.

For months, Shira Barlow's cell phone was flooded with wrong-number calls and text messages, mostly between 2 and 4 a.m. on weekends. Told they had reached a college student, callers refused to believe it.

Barlow's story began on Valentine's Day during a night out with friends. She was carrying her phone in a back pocket when it fell into a toilet. When she replaced it, her wireless company insisted on assigning the San Francisco native a new number with a 310 area code rather than 415. Barlow had been given a recycled phone number that used to be Paris Hilton's. The practice stems from efforts to conserve phone numbers to minimize area-code splitting.

Just after Barlow got her new phone close to Hilton's February 17 birthday, a flurry of calls and texts arrived. "Oh my God," one caller said. "Where's the party?"

Barlow plans to keep the number because she says it has been a greater source of amusement than a hassle. "It was really out of convenience," she added. "I didn't want to switch again." » Full article here

Woman listening to iPod loses leg in train accident

A woman out for jog while listening to her iPod had her legs severed by a freight train because she may not have heard it coming, authorities said.

Cheryl Ann Risse, 32, was recovering at a hospital Friday. Authorities did not know how she ended up in the path of the train Thursday morning, but rescue workers speculated she did not hear the locomotive coming because she was listening to her iPod.

Risse often jogged across the tracks on her way to a nearby park, said Keyla Concepcion, spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff's Office. The train engineer didn't know he had struck Risse until he returned along the same tracks minutes later, Concepcion said.

"My feet are on fire," she told Tony Long, a battalion chief for Pompano Beach Fire-Rescue, who responded to the scene. "Do you think you can put the fire out? They're really hurting." The woman was expected to survive. » Article here

Drunk 11-year-old girl leads cops on 100 MPH chase

Police who chased a car for miles along a highway at speeds up to 100 mph said the driver was drunk, hardly a rarity in this resort town. But there was more: When they looked inside the flipped vehicle with guns drawn, they found an 11-year-old girl at the wheel.

The girl, who was slightly injured in the crash, is now charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding, reckless endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident. Duck said she sideswiped another vehicle during the roughly 8-mile chase.

Duck said the girl, whose name was not released because of her age, told police she was on her way to pick up her sister at a concert. Investigators found no alcohol in the car but believe the girl drank before getting behind the wheel of the car, which belongs to relatives. A blood test at the hospital showed it was higher than .02, the legal limit for minors. » Article here

Lucky baby born with digits; 7+7+7+7+7.

The son of Dan and Leslie Falkner was born July 7, 2007, considered by many the luckiest day of the century. But Jack's luck didn't stop there. The infant weighed in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces, at St. Joseph's Hospital in Chippewa Falls.

The number seven is considered lucky by gamblers, numerologists and the slew of couples who chose Saturday as their wedding date. If the string of sevens in that date makes for auspicious associations, the extra digits in his weight could bode that much better for the infant. » Article here
