Woman Denied From Flying With ‘Emotional Support’ Peacock
Yes, you read that correctly. This is 'Crappy News' for Thursday, February 1st.
Griffith, IN- A restaurant owner has been arrested after a customer found illegal drugs in her food.
Police received a 911 call in November from a woman who found a baggie of cocaine in her order of cheese sticks. She told police she found the bag after receiving a call from the business owner, 49-year-old Carrie Demoff, asking to return the cheese sticks to the restaurant.
Video footage shows Demoff dropping the baggie into a Styrofoam cup and sealing it with a lid. Demoff took the cup to a prep station when it was mistakenly included in the to-go order.
The restaurant's business license was suspended, and Demoff has been charged with attempted dealing of cocaine, possession of cocaine and maintaining a common nuisance. [Northwest Indiana Times]
Seville, Spain- Several suspects were cited for smuggling a sizable supply of citrus.
Officers became suspicious when they noticed two cars driving very close to each other. The vehicles sped away when police tried to pull them over. After a short chase, cops were able to stop the cars...and found each of them packed with oranges from back to front.
Altogether, police recovered more than four tons of oranges.
The suspects told police that they'd been road-tripping and collecting oranges along the way, but--surprise!--the cops didn't buy it. It didn't take long to figure out the culprits had stolen the fruit from a recent shipment. Each of the five suspects were arrested and charged with theft. [CNN]
Newark, NJ- A woman wasn't allowed to board a plane with her emotional-support animal.
You might be saying "That's awful. Why would an airline do such a thing?" Well, it's probably because he emotional-support animal was a peacock.
The woman offered to pay for the peacock's ticket, but United staff would not allow the bird on the plane. United issued a statement saying the peacock didn't "meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size. We explained this to the customer on three separate occasions before she arrived at the airport."
The airline also said it requires passengers to "provide documentation from a medical professional and at least 48 hours' advance notice" before bringing an emotional-support animal onto a flight. [Business Insider]
Seriously...WHO WANTS TO DEAL WITH THAT ON A PLANE? Get over yourself.
