Police responded to a call of a homicide Thursday night. Cops later determined that Micah Risner & Natalie Schlette had staged the scene. Schlette had been placed in the bathtub and the couple squirted ketchup all over her body to make it look like blood.

Police say Risner had posted a photo of the fake murder on Facebook and sent text messages to friends confessing to the crime. Cops were not amused by the joke, and the couple was charged with inducing panic. [Sandusky Register]

Maybe wait 'til Halloween the next time you're going to pretend to kill somebody. Just an idea...

Jones' blood alcohol level was greater than THREE TIMES the legal limit, so he was dinged for DUI causing property damage. [Florida Keys News]

But, at least we FINALLY know why that darn chicken crossed the road.
