Gulfport, MS- A drunk man drove his truck into a courthouse.
Video shows 28-year-old Keith Cavalier smashing his pickup into the glass entrance of the building early Saturday morning then climbing out of the passenger window.
Cavalier told police he intentionally crashed his vehicle into the county courthouse because it was the best way to tell authorities that his drug paraphernalia had been stolen.
Ozark, MO- A pastor is taking a stand...against exercise?
Last month, Pastor John Lindell warned congregants about the spiritual dangers of fortune-telling, Wicca...and yoga. Lindell believes that the positions in yoga were "created with demonic intent to open you up to demonic power."
Lindell said he was coming from a place of concern for people's spiritual well-being. He claims that it is "spiritually dangerous" for people to empty their minds, and that Christians should stay away from yoga because of its demonic roots."
The local yoga community has spoken out, saying that Lindell's message is "ignorant," "hypocrisy," and hate speech. [USA Today]
New Jersey- Thousands of drunk driving cases could be thrown out because of a careless cop.
State Police Sgt. Marc Dennis has been accused of improperly calibrating breath-testing devices. As a result, evidence from those cases has been deemed inadmissible by the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Dennis allegedly lied on official documents about performing a legally-required temperature check, which the court ruled would have ensured the readings were accurate.
The accusations called into question any test result involving a machine Sgt. Dennis handled, including those used by police in five different counties between 2008 and 2016. In total, 20,667 DWI cases could now be in challenged. [NJ.com]
