Dude tries to hang his wife in a haunted house (sort of)

A man is accused of luring his wife into their garage to see a haunted house and then hanging her. Police arrested 38-year-old Sean Allen Jennings late Tuesday night after the woman, who escaped death, reported the incident.

The hanging happened Sunday night when Jennings asked his wife to come into the garage to see a surprise haunted house he had built for their two children. According to a press release on the incident, Jennings convinced his wife to put on a blindfold and then directed her up some steps on a ladder, handcuffed her and put a rope around her neck.

The couple were living together while going through a divorce. The woman told police that she became scared and asked Jennings to release her, but instead he pushed her so she fell. She balanced on a toe for a while to keep from hanging. The victim said that as she begged for help her husband told her that hanging her was better than getting a divorce.

Tired, she slipped and began hanging from the rope, but her husband pulled her up just as she lost consciousness. According to the police press release, Jennings then told his wife to put aloe vera on the rope burn around her neck and cover it with a neck brace to hide it. » Article here

Police find dude asleep at the wheel while driving

A 26-year-old St. Louis Park man was asleep at the wheel of his pickup as it drove down the street before dawn on Sunday. He didn't wake when the truck crossed the centerline, or when an officer ran up and jumped on the running board, reached inside and put the truck in neutral.

Then the officer got his attention. "Police had to shake the defendant's shoulder and yell at him to wake him up," the complaint said. Brito was charged with driving while intoxicated, refusing to submit to a test for alcohol and driving while his license was revoked. The charges are all misdemeanors. » Article here

6-year-old boy drives grandmother's car to Applebees

A hungry 6-year-old decided he wanted to eat at Applebee's on Tuesday morning, so he grabbed his grandmother's car keys and headed out for a bite.

He backed her car about 75 feet before he slammed into a utility junction box. The boy's adventure began when he decided he was hungry, O'Connell said. Knowing he still needed a booster seat, he took one from the back seat of his grandmother's car and put it in the driver's seat.

"He proceeded to start the car and started backing up," said O'Connell, who doesn't know if, or how, the boy reached the accelerator. "He went backward about 47 feet, hit the curb then went backward another 29 feet. That's when he struck the power box for Xcel Energy and Qwest Communications." No one was injured, but dozens of townhomes near 120th Avenue and Greenway Drive lost phone service and power for hours. » Article here

Bad relationships can increase your chance of dying

The study, reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found the stress and anxiety of hostile, angry relationships can boost the risk of developing heart disease. Chances of a heart attack or chest pain rose by 34 percent compared to people on good terms with a spouse or partner.

"A person's heart condition seems to be influenced by negative intimate relationships," researchers wrote. "We showed that the negative aspects of close relationships...are associated with coronary heart disease."

The team followed up over a 12-year period and found that people who reported that arguments, criticism and other types of conflict were common had a 34 percent greater risk of heart attacks or chest pain. » Article here
