Hawkeye Football Player Arrested After Mistaking Cop Car For Uber
How's YOUR offseason going? This is "Crappy News" for Tuesday, July 24th, 2018.
Graham, KY- A man with a very fitting last name was just busted for drugs.
46-year-old Stan Crunk and 45-year-old James Castile were pulled over during a traffic stop late last month. A police dog detected drugs in their vehicle and police found more than 200 grams of meth, along with thousands of dollars in cash.
The force was able to get a search warrant for Castile’s home where they found more drugs as well as information about a storage unit in his name.
A guy named Crunk...got caught WITH crunk. You can't make this stuff up.
Omena, MI- This town has completely lost its faith in humans.
A new mayor has been elected--a 9-year-old cat named Sweet Tart McKee. The feline previously served as Omena's vice mayor.
Sweet Tart campaigned against 13 dogs, a peacock, a goat, a chicken and another cat, all of which were awarded positions in the village council. Votes were cast through $1 donations, with all the money being donated to the local historical society.
Omena has had an animal mayor for more than a decade. Sweet Tart will hold office (or would it be "paw"-fice?) until the village's next election in 2021. [UpNorthLive.com]
Come to think of it...this may be the best way to fix the election process.
Iowa City- A University of Iowa football player thought a police car was an Uber car.
Around 2:00 a.m. Saturday police say 22-year-old Brady Reiff approached a parked U of I patrol car and attempted to open the vehicle’s passenger door.
He reportedly asked the officer for a ride home, and Reiff told the cop, quote, "he thought that was our job."
Reiff's blood alcohol content was .204--more than two-and-a-half times the legal limit. Reiff, a starting defensive tackle for the Hawkeyes, was arrested for public intoxication and has been suspended for the team's season opener on September 1st. [Cedar Rapids Gazette]
I mean, at least he wasn't trying to drive himself home. #SilverLining
