According to an arrest affidavit, a vehicle cam captured Wallace last month “eating a bag of drugs he pulled from his butt.” Pictured at right, Wallace then “proceeds to eat the baggy with the drugs.”

When confronted by sheriff’s deputies, Wallace denied consuming the baggy, and then spit it out in front of a cop. The officer subsequently “swabbed the defendant’s mouth which tested positive for cocaine,” the affidavit states. “The baggy is being sent to the lab for testing.”

Fearing Coronavirus, Man, 75, Pulled Gun On Masked Women, Warned Them To “Get Back” | The Smoking Gun

Fearful of catching the coronavirus, a 75-year-old man pointed a handgun at two women wearing face masks and gloves during an encounter at a post office in Georgia, police charge.

According to cops, Harvey Taratoot was in the post office Sunday when he confronted the victims. Taratoot yelled at the duo–a grandmother and her 18-year-old granddaughter–“to get back.”

The women, who were not hurt during the incident, told police that they were “wearing medical masks and gloves when they entered the post office” in Alpharetta, a city 25 miles north of Atlanta.

“Pee Napkin” Prompts Fight, Domestic Bust

The woman, cops reported, said after she “had intercourse with [Janisch] in their car, she had to urinate. She did so outside of the car.” And that is when the trouble began. “After she wiped herself she accidentally threw the napkin on” Janisch.

Upon reentering the car, the couple began arguing and Janisch, police allege, choked the victim for several seconds, prompting her to scream for help.

After being read his rights, Janisch reportedly told police he became “irate after she threw the pee napkin on him.” Janisch, cops say, declined to “advise who became physical first,” but claimed that the marks on his girlfriend’s neck “may have been from the beach.”

Why this Nobel laureate predicts a quicker coronavirus recovery: ‘We’re going to be fine’

A Nobel laureate predicted China’s recovery weeks before it happened. Analyzing the numbers, he sees a much brighter global outcome than many experts.

Michael Levitt, a Nobel laureate and Stanford biophysicist, began analyzing the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide in January and correctly calculated that China would get through the worst of its coronavirus outbreak long before many health experts had predicted.

Now he foresees a similar outcome in the United States and the rest of the world.

While many epidemiologists are warning of months, or even years, of massive social disruption and millions of deaths, Levitt says the data simply don’t support such a dire scenario — especially in areas where reasonable social distancing measures are in place.

“What we need is to control the panic,” he said. In the grand scheme, “we’re going to be fine.”
