Omaha, NE- Cops chased after a man driving a tractor through a Walmart parking lot.
The pursuit started around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. During the chase, the driver berated police and yelled for them to bring him a sandwich and a glass of water. The man then turned out of the parking lot and crashed the tractor through a nearby fence.

That might be one of the most "Nebraska" stories ever.
Lakeland, FL- A man was arrested for DUI after trying to drive up a flight of stairs.
25-year-old Derek Whiting accidentally drove onto a sidewalk while drunk. According to police, Whiting also struck a concrete sphere and traveled across a patch of grass onto a different walkway. Officers arrived as Whiting was attempting to drive up the stairs.
Whiting's blood alcohol level was .188, almost two-and-a-half times the legal limit of .08. Making matters worse, he mangled the front end of his car in the process. [Lakeland Ledger]
That might be one of the most "Florida" stories ever.
Mt. Pleasant, PA- A soon-to-be dad almost died during his baby's gender reveal!
23-year-old Zack Muellerleile and his wife Joscelyn were holding the party in their backyard this weekend. The couple found out they were having a boy and as they were celebrating, someone heard a loud crack.
Joscelyn's father yelled that a tree was about to fall, but Zack couldn't get out of the way fast enough. Fortunately, the tree mostly struck a Jeep that was parked in the driveway, or he actually might've been killed. One of the limbs of the tree landed just a few inches from Zack's head.
Apparently, Mother Nature ALSO thinks gender reveal parties are overrated...
