Right hand red, left finger blue.


Dude's wedding band deflects bullet, saves his life.

Donnie Register has a new reason to be thankful he's married — police say his wedding band deflected a bullet and probably saved his life. Two men walked into Register's shop and asked to see a coin collection, police Sgt. Jeffery Scott said.

When Register retrieved the collection, one of the men pulled a gun and demanded money. A shot was fired as Register threw up his left hand, and his wedding ring deflected the bullet, police said.

"The bullet managed to go through two of his fingers without severing the bone," said his wife, Darlene Register. "A part of the bullet broke off and is in his middle finger. The other part is in his neck, lodged in the muscle tissue. But it's not life-threatening." » Article here

Girl suspended after getting her head bashed in during fight

When Intermediate School student Evelyn Higgins had her head bashed against a wall by another girl two weeks ago, the incident followed a nasty exchange of words. The attacker called Evelyn a "f-- haole." Evelyn called the attacker a "slut."

Evelyn, 12, had a gash in her head closed with 10 surgical staples.

Tomorrow, she'll have to sit through a day of in-school suspension somewhere on the school grounds for using the word "slut." Her attacker also will be punished by the school, but the school won't say how. Police are also investigating, but juvenile court cases remain secret. Whether using a racial slur makes this a hate crime might never be made public. » Article here

Inmate clogs toliet to escape from jail.

An inmate who escaped from a work-release crew by creating a distraction with an overflowing toilet has been recaptured, authorities said.

Police arrested Wayne Mitchell, 24, stole a Chevrolet Camaro convertible authorities said to make his getaway. Mitchell was in the Clark County Jail for a probation-violation warrant, but had been working with a crew clearing roadside trash.

When the crew stopped at the Clark County Fraternal Order of Police lodge to eat lunch Wednesday, Mitchell went into a restroom and clogged a toilet, causing it to overflow, police said. He then came out saying he needed some towels from the jail's van to sop up the mess. "The toilet overflowed and the rest of the inmates were trying to clean it up," said Maj. Chuck Adams of the Clark County Sheriff's Department.

Instead of going to the van, Mitchell walked to nearby G&R Auto Sales, where an employee gave him the keys to a car he said he wanted to look over, police said. Police said he then stole a red 1995 Camaro. » Article here
