HOPE HE DON’T COME UP “SHORT”
You’ve probably heard of singer Chubby Checker, now age 72, who popularized a dance with his hit song The Twist in 1960? Well, in February 2013 he filed a lawsuit against Hewlett Packard and its “Palm unit,” also named Chubby Checker, a software app that measures the size of a male’s external reproductive organ.
HE SHOULD SUE HIMSELF
Gainesville, Fla., resident Joseph Carl, 48, was drinking when he drove his pickup into a vehicle stopped at a red light. Apparently hating to take the blame under his condition, he next jumped from his vehicle and began banging on the female driver’s car, leaving his own vehicle in gear… causing it to run him over. Later, after being treated at a hospital for a fractured hand and foot, Carl was charged with DUI and DUI property damage.
WAS HE PLAYING CALL OF DUTY?
Guess who Syracuse, N.Y., police officer Robert Harrington, 35, ran into? That would be 51-year-old Detective Edward MacBlane. Harrington was responding to a suspicious person complaint, without his vehicle’s siren or emergency lights on, while looking at his computer, when he ran the red light and hit MacBlane’s unmarked car.
