Truck spills pumpkins onto interstate


FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Oct. 26 (UPI) --

Michigan State Police said the right lane of eastbound Interstate 696 in Farmington Hills

was blocked when a truck dumped pumpkins onto the roadway.


Police said the pumpkin-hauling truck lost part of its load Wednesday morning

near Orchard Lake Road, The Detroit News reported Wednesday.

Sgt. James Kemp told the Detroit Free Press a motorist dialed 911 around 6 a.m.

when a pumpkin fell from the truck and bounced off his car.

"They were bouncing off people's cars," Kemp said. "

At least one windshield was shattered, but at least he didn't get hurt."

Kemp said the truck driver was stopped and could face a citation

for having an unstable load, which carries a fine of $100 to $150.


Man Claims Prostitute Turned Into Donkey During Sex

A MAN caught having sex with a donkey stunned a court on Monday by claiming that the animal

was in fact a hooker he pulled from a nightclub.

Sunday Moyo, 28, from Mandava township was charged with bestiality on Monday.
The donkey, which had been tied by the neck to a tree, was lying on the ground.

Although he was not formally asked to enter a plea, Moyo admitted committing the crime but told the magistrate

an enthralling tale which had the court in stitches.

“Your worship, I only came to know that I was being intimate with a donkey when I got arrested,” he began.

“I had hired a prostitute and paid US$20 for the service at Down Town night club and

I don’t know how she then became a donkey.”

Giant Lego Man washed ashore in the Netherlands

Man, nabbed with 228 pounds of cocaine, police say

(Reuters) - An 87-year-old Indiana man was arraigned on drug charges

in federal court in Detroit on Monday after police found 228 pounds of cocaine

worth an estimated $2.9 million in his pickup following a routine traffic stop.


A state trooper patrolling Interstate 94 near Ann Arbor pulled over Leo Earl Sharp on

following too closely and executing an improper lane change, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court.

When the trooper asked Sharp if he could search the truck, the octogenarian refused.


So the trooper requested a backup unit with a dog trained to detect bombs and illegal drugs.

As the animal walked around the rear of Sharp's truck, it alerted to the possible presence of narcotics,

the complaint said. During a subsequent search of the truck bed,

troopers found 104 bricks of cocaine stashed in five bags.


U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Randon released Sharp, of Michigan City, Indiana,

on $10,000 bond on Monday and scheduled a next hearing in the case for November.

Sharp was charged with conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. If convicted, he faces at least 10 years in prison.

60 Elvises flee hotel during fire alarm

Maybe fools rush in, but one group of Elvises rushed out.

According to the U.K.'s Mirror newspaper, a hotel fire alarm

sent a group of costume party attendees running for the exit

after a smoke machine malfunction apparently triggered the alert.

The newspaper report said about 60 people dressed in Elvis costumes were dancing

at an event for a cancer charity in Rochester, Kent, on Saturday night when the alarm rang out.


One guest at the Holiday Inn said the fire alert was surprising enough,

without encountering a gaggle of Elvises in the parking lot.

"There were people in the full Elvis jumpsuits and wigs standing by a roundabout,

looking a bit the worse for wear," the paper quoted the unnamed guest as saying.

"A smoke machine set off the fire alarm and at no point was anyone in any danger,

but yes, Elvis did leave the building," the hotel's manager Kevin Coombes, told the paper.

Armless archer setting world records




If you've ever wondered what determination looks like,

take a good long stare at Matt Stutzman.

You wouldn't be the first.

Stutzman was born without arms,

but he compensates with creativity and the will to succeed.

"Even at a young age, I remember always trying to do stuff and I'd ask for help

with my parents and my parents would always tell me, in a nice way,

'Try to figure it out first before we help you,'" he says.

He turned his determination into success on the archery range.

Two years ago we figured out his unique release system.

Stutzman adjusts the bow with this toes, holds it with his right foot,

and brings up the arrow with his left.

"My feet are my hands, so I just and hold it the same way they would with their hands," he explains.

Using a release aid, he hooks the string to his shoulder before taking aim and letting go.


He's vying for a spot on the 2012 US Paralympic Team.

In September Stutzman hit a shot from more than two football fields away.

230 yards to be exact, breaking a Guinness World Record for the longest shot on target.

It was 14 yards better than the old one set by a man who had both arms.

"I believe how I shoot is an advantage, because I use my leg and my leg is the strongest part of my body," he says.

Not counting his inner drive of course, which has him eyeing the able bodied competition with one ultimate goal.

"I want to be the best archer in the world...hands down...the best archer in the world," Stutzman says.
