Stupid Dumb And Strange Arrests.

Q: What Goes "Clop, Clop, Bang. Clop, Clop, Bang?
A: An Amish drive by shooting.

Now to the blotter.

(July 21) -- Kids these days. Give them the keys to the horse and carriage, and they go wild.

Levi Detweiler, a 17-year-old Amish kid from Leon, N.Y., allegedly ran a stop sign in his horse and buggy, leading authorities on a mile-long low-speed chase.

Detweiler took a sharp turn too fast and turned the buggy over, rolling it into a ditch, police said. He then got out and fled on foot.

Levi Detweiler, a 17-year-old Amish youth, is accused of leading police on a low-speed one-mile chase on July 18 when he allegedly refused to pull over while driving his horse and buggy. He was charged with possession of alcohol and "over-driving an animal."
It took the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office a week to investigate the incident, which ended with Levi being charged with underage possession of alcohol, reckless endangerment, over-driving an animal, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

And, yes, "over-driving an animal" is an actual crime.

Talk about a fake sick note. Police in central Pennsylvania say a middle school teacher lied for years about having an inoperable brain tumor so she could take sick leave. Leslie Herneisey, 51, of Middletown faces 12 counts of forgery.

A one-armed man charged with un-armed robbery? Police in Springfield, Mass., say Manuel Hernandez, who has one arm, strong-armed a 68-year-old man for his wallet last week.

Assault suspect Jesse Thornhill's distinctive body modifications make his mug shot easily recognizable. The 28-year-old is accused of trying to run over his landlord in a minivan.

Drunken driving is no laughing matter -- even if the suspect's name is Donald Duck. Police in Massillon, Ohio, arrested a man who shares his name with the beloved Disney waterfowl. Officers say Duck was driving drunk when he repeatedly bumped into another car while waiting in line at a drive-through restaurant.

Michelle Perrino allegedly set a fire in her office in Port Richey, Fla., so she could leave work early.

Elizabeth Breeden just wanted a cold drink. Unfortunately, she turned out in jail. The Florida woman was charged with battery for allegedly attacking her boyfriend in a scuffle over the last can of Natural Light beer in their home.

Sopranos star Joseph Gannascoli was arrested for DUI in Tampa, Florida, in the early hours of Friday June 18, 2010. The TV actor 51, from New York, was detained by Hillsborough County Sheriff's officers before being booked into jail on $500 bond. He was in 41 episodes of The Sopranos between 1999 and 2006, and played a mobster who was killed because he was gay.

Police say Joy Cassidy didn't hold the mayo. The 74-year-old is suspected of pouring mayonnaise into a library return box -- and investigators think she might be behind about 10 other recent condiment crimes in which library books were damaged in Boise, Idaho.

Talk about dialing the wrong number. Police say Audrey Scott of Alliance, Ohio, called 911 five times in an hour on June 8 and asked operators to help her find a husband. She was hit with misdemeanor charges and served three days in jail.
