In Seoul, South Korea, health authorities said they are investigating a cosmetic surgery clinic after photographs emerged online apparently showing medical staff partying in an operating room. In one selfie, posted on Instagram, staff in scrubs appeared to stand around a candlelit birthday cake with an apparently unconscious patient lying on a bed behind them, The Guardian reports. Another picture showed a staff member, wearing a mask and a surgery gown, jokingly placing a gel breast implant over her chest in an operating room. Another showed staff posing while eating hamburgers. “Our officials are investigating the clinic to see if there was any violation of medical laws,” said a spokeswoman from the public health department in Seoul’s Gangnam district, according to The Guardian. “They may look into whether such behavior damaged the reputation of medical practitioners.” Under South Korea’s medical law, behavior deemed to tarnish the reputation of the industry can result in suspension.
In Roswell, New Mexico, a man scratched off a lottery ticket that showed he won $500,000. But, when he went back to the store at which he bought the ticket to show the staff he won, they said it was a mistake. The ticket shows two scratched off boxes with a “1” that matches a winning number, but there’s a very faint indication that another number was supposed to be printed next to the “1’s”. The New Mexico Lottery said it was a flaw in the ticket and offered him $100 worth of scratch-off tickets instead.
In West Palm Beach, Florida, a man walking on a sidewalk heard moaning coming from the lot of a car dealership, and when he looked for the source of the noise, he saw a couple having relations on top of a vehicle at the dealership. The couple caught him looking and started yelling at him, the Sun-Sentinel reports. The man called police. When police arrived, the couple was sitting in a van in the lot—the van belonged to the dealership, not the couple. While being arrested, the male member of the couple spit on a police officer. Both are charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, trespassing and auto burglary. The male faces an additional charge of battery on a law enforcement officer.
In Chicago, Illinois, a man rode his bike to a police station to report his iPhone stolen. He didn’t have his bike lock with him, so he asked police if he could bring his bicycle inside the station. They agreed, so he rolled it into the station then filled out a police report. When he turned around to leave, his bike was gone. He first thought it was a joke by one of the officers, but it wasn’t, his bike was stolen from the police station.
In Granite City, Illinois, a man set off a courthouse metal detector about 10 years ago, went to the doctor and had an x-ray that found something metal lodged in his arm. At the time, the doctor said to leave it alone since he had no pain and his arm was functioning fine. However, recently the man experienced pain, so he had surgery, during which a surgeon removed a 7-inch long turn signal from a Ford Thunderbird the man had wrecked 51 years ago. The man said he was treated for injuries to the surface of his arm at the time of the wreck.
In Vineland, New Jersey, police spotted a driver running a red light and pulled him over. The man failed a roadside sobriety test and was taken to jail. According to the Associated Press, at the jail the man claimed police shouldn’t charge him because, “It’s New Year’s Eve, everyone drives drunk.”
