In Round Lake Park, Illinois, employees at an elementary school told the Lake County News-Sun they saw a young girl pull up to the school drop off zone driving a car. The girl, 11-years-old, and another, 9-years-old, who was in the back seat, got out of the car. Then, a grown man moved into the driver’s seat and drove away. The man is wanted on two counts of child endangerment and driving with a suspended license.
In Madison, Wisconsin, a man took an axe and destroyed the family car, as well as a television and laptop in the house.

He was arrested and faces charges of disorderly conduct and felony damage to property.
In Kutztown, Pennsylvania, police got more than they bargained for when they asked for the public’s help with some officer training. On Facebook, the police department asked for 3 volunteers to drink hard liquor to the point of inebriation so officers could be trained how to administer field sobriety tests during traffic stops. The Facebook post accumulated hundreds of responses and more than 1,000 shares in less than a day, the Associated Press reports.
In Falmouth, Maine, an inebriated man tried to get a Lyft home. However, the Lyft driver was actually ordered by his next door neighbor, so when the man arrived, he tried to get into the wrong house. Police were called, and the man was taken to jail to sober up. The neighbor did not press charges.
