Stupid News for 2/26/14

       A Texas news producer said the "stupidity of some people" leads to incidents like the baring of a man's buttocks during a Mardi Gras report. Samantha Ptashkin was delivering a report on Mardi Gras celebrations Saturday night when a man standing behind her during the live report bared his buttocks on camera. A station rep said, "We go to great lengths to make sure things like this don't happen. But sometimes unfortunately you cannot avoid the stupidity of some people. We do feel badly about it." The station only received a few complaints about the incident.

      A Maryland woman was arrested for allegedly attacking her neighbor with a knife during an argument about dog poop, police said. Officers responded to a residence in the city and the  victim told officers neighbor Tameka Wright had become angry when asked to pick up dog feces the victim believed to have come from Wright's dog. Wright allegedly retrieved a knife from her home during the argument and swung it at the other woman, causing a laceration to her hand. Police said there were several witnesses to the incident. Wright was arrested on charges of first and second-degree assault, possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure and reckless endangerment.

       Police in Texas said a man who escaped custody was recaptured when he called 911 to complain about pain resulting from his handcuffs. Dyonta Rose was arrested on drug charges Saturday when he was found to be carrying a backpack with suspected narcotics and he was handcuffed before escaping when the arresting officer left him alone. Police said Rose called 911 later the same evening and complained the circulation in his arm was being cut off by the handcuffs he was still wearing. Rose was placed back under arrest and is facing felony charges of possession of a controlled substance, escape and tampering with evidence. He is also facing a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana.
