You wish your aunt was this cool. Here's 'Crappy News' for Wednesday, November 29th.
Albuquerque, NM- Black Friday shopping had to be delayed after a homeless man became locked inside Walmart.
Police say George Suckow went into the store's bathroom Thanksgiving night, and stayed there until employees had left. Once locked in, Suckow decided to help himself to candy bars and soft drinks, and even tried on an adult diaper.
An alarm inside the store alerted police and a K-9 unit found Suckow inside the bathroom.
Suckow allegedly caused about $150 in damage, and police charged him with commercial burglary. Because of the incident other local stores were forced to open for Black Friday later than planned. [KOB-TV]
Alachua, FL- Police caught a drunk driver after she stopped to pee.

Tewksbury, MA- A woman picked up her third DWI...after trying to pick up her niece.
33-year-old Andrea Rego was pulled over last month after police received a call about a drunk woman trying to pick up her niece from cheerleading practice.
Rego sped away two different times from police before stopping.
When a cop asked her to stand on one foot, she tried to walk a straight line instead. She also refused a breathalyzer test.
According to police, Rego smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on her feet as she was arrested. Police also found an open bottle of vodka in her SUV. Rego was cited for an open container violation, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for police, and driving with a suspended license. [Lowell Sun]
