Iowa Woman Arrested For Leaving Children Inside Cold Car
This is definitely NOT something I'd forget to bring. Here's "Crappy News" for Thursday, January 31st, 2019.
Monroe, LA- A college campus was partially shut down...because of bats.
The University of Louisiana-Monroe's College of Health Sciences has been temporarily closed due to an infestation of thousands of bats.
A school official says the bats were first spotted in ducts about a month ago, but have now started wandering into classrooms and offices.
The university hired a pest control company to bat-proof the building, but the efforts were not successful.
The building will be closed for about two weeks until all of the bats can be evicted from the facility and the air quality can be assessed. [UPI]
We're closing schools because of the cold. This might ACTUALLY be worse.
Champaign, IL- A driver wasn't taking the snowy roads very seriously.
Illinois State Police pulled over a woman for going 115 miles per hour in a 35-mph zone.
A Facebook post from the department said in part, quote, "If you think you won’t get in a bad crash in town because the speed limits are low and you’re a good driver, think again. Just remember there are people like this driving next to you."
The name of the driver was not released. [NBC 25]
These people are the worst. I'm sorry...my safety trumps you wanting to drive fast.
Council Bluffs, IA- A mom faces felony charges after leaving her kids inside a freezing car.
25-year-old Stephanie Moses allegedly left her 2-and 4-year-old children unattended for about 45 minutes on Tuesday. A witness saw the children alone in the vehicle and called 911.
The temperature on Tuesday was around 5°, with a wind chill of -15°. Police said the car was unlocked, not running, and the windows were partially rolled down. Officers also said the children were not properly dressed for the cold.
Moses reportedly told police she had been applying for a job.
The kids were placed in protective custody. Moses was in court Wednesday and has been charged with two counts of child neglect. [KETV]
