INDIANA: Porn
Stash Suit.
It has been reported that a man is suing his parents for
throwing out his massive porn collection. The 40-year-old whose name has been
withheld by news outlets, filed the suit seeking damages of $86,822.16 after
his parents trashed 12 moving boxes worth of smut, including titles such as Frisky Business and Big Bad Grannies.

AUSTRALIA: Sea
Flee?
  A drug suspect’s getaway
attempted was foiled when he tried to flee Australia for Papua New Guinea on a
Sea-Doo water scooter. The 57-year-old British man fled from the northern tip
of the state of Queensland carrying enough fuel to make the 86-mile trek across
the Torres Strait. He was found and apprehended only a few miles from his
destination.

GERMANY: The
headline read, “Foiled again.”
Authorities impounded a blinged-out Porsche
covered in gold foil because, they say it was dangerously distracting to other
drivers. The 31-year-old owner had previously been cited for driving the flashy
sports car, so police took his keys on the second offense.

RUSSIA: “His excuse
did not fly,” read the headline
. A man tried to board a Moscow airplane
stark naked – by claiming that clothing made him less aerodynamic. “He shouted
that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He
flies with more agility when undressed,” a passenger said. We learn that the
plane left without him.

SLOVENIA: No way
to hand-dle it?
A woman allegedly sawed off her own hand to collect
insurance money – and now she has been “fingered” for a crime. The unnamed
21-year-od from Ljubjiana allegedly cut off her hand above the wrist, claiming
it was an accident while sawing off branches, to collect $450,000 in insurance,
authorities said. Surgeons reattached the hand, and the woman was charged with
fraud.

SOUTH CAROLINA: Axe
body spray ploy?
We learn that a suspected drunken driver was caught
squirting Axe body spray in his mouth in a desperate attempt to cover the smell
of alcohol on his breath, say police. However, giving him away was 12-pack of
beer on his passenger side floorboard, including 10 empties, authorities say.
The 11th brewski was also sitting between the suspect’s legs when
police stopped him.
