Odd Squad Car Nosh Caught On Police Cam

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.”

Trump: I don’t believe you really need that many ventilators

Trump: I don't believe you really need that many ventilators 2In an interview with Sean Hannity, the president again minimized the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York says his state needs 30,000 ventilators to respond to the escalating coronavirus crisis.

President Donald Trump doesn’t believe him.

Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Thursday night, Trump again minimized the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic, casting doubt on the need for tens of thousands of ventilators for hospitals responding to the crisis.

“I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be,” he said. “I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You go into major hospitals sometimes, and they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?’”

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.”
