A Woman Was Busted for Trading Sexual Favors to Get a Good Deal on a Cadillac:
On Wednesday, 28-year-old Crystal Frantzen was shopping for a Cadillac in Blountville, Tennessee.
She had her eye on a '90s model Cadillac and wanted the dealer, 58-year-old Gary Tipton, to give her a better deal. We don't know the model of the Cadillac or the price.
But Crystal and Gary came to an arrangement. They'd drive to a gas station . . . she'd perform a SEXUAL FAVOR on him . . . and he'd lower the price.
Unfortunately for them, someone saw them at the BP station and called the cops. Crystal was arrested for prostitution, and Gary was arrested for patronizing a prostitute. He also had illegal prescription drugs on him.
The Mayor of Gainesville, Florida Was Busted for Getting Into a Drunk Driving Accident . . . Then Falling Asleep Behind the Wheel:
Craig Lowe is the mayor of Gainesville, Florida, where the population is about 125,000. Not huge, but it's one of the 200 largest cities in the U.S. And he just got busted for a DUI, badly.
Yesterday morning, he was driving drunk and CRASHED his Honda Civic into a ditch. Then . . . he fell asleep in the driver's seat.
When the cops got there, his blood-alcohol was below the legal limit, but he was still charged with a DUI because he admitted he'd been drinking before the crash. He was also charged with property damage.
Lowe was elected mayor in 2010. And he's up for re-election next month against Gainesville's city commissioner, Ed Braddy. Lucky for him, Ed was ALSO arrested for drunk driving, back in 2006.
A Man Tries to Rob a Store by Breaking in Through the Ceiling . . . Only He Did It at 1:00 P.M.:
We've seen a bunch of stories where people try to pull off "Mission: Impossible"-style heists by breaking into a store through the roof, and lowering themselves down. But . . . um . . . usually they do it when the store is CLOSED.
On Wednesday, 47-year-old Paul Masters wanted to rob a department store called Roses, in Lexington, Kentucky. His plan was to break in through the ceiling tiles and lower himself to the floor. And he did that . . . at 1:00 P.M.
Right before he dropped down, employees heard him moving around in the ceiling, so they called the cops. The cops came and waited until Paul dropped through, and when he did, they wrestled him to the ground and arrested him for burglary.
And the police agreed this was a pretty mediocre idea. Quote, "This is very uncommon for . . . 1:00 in the afternoon. This is typically the type of crime we would see in the early morning hours."
