Kid Gets Gun Pulled On Him After Accidentally Butt-Dialing 911
Cops showed up to bust a party, and someone was VERY unhappy about it. This is 'Crappy News' for Tuesday, 11/21/17.
Vancouver, Canada- A man took "distracted driving" to completely new levels.
A patrol car pulled the man over after the officer noticed he was wearing headphones while driving. Police found a smartphone and tablet computer fastened to the steering wheel, so the owner could use them more easily while he was driving.
Officers posted a photo of the driver's setup on social media.
The man removed the devices on his steering wheel. The officer decided that TELLING him it was wrong was punishment enough and chose to NOT fine him for distracted driving. However, the culprit did receive an C$81 ($62 U.S.) ticket for being unable to produce his driver's license. [BBC.com]
This just proves how nice Canadians are. No way an American cop would be that lenient.

Randall told police that she had gone to her mother's house for a birthday celebration and that the two were fighting over Randall's birthday money. She was officially charged with domestic battery. [Arkansas Democrat-Gazette]
What a waste of perfectly good queso. Shameful.
