Did that really happen? A round-up of strange news from the US

Here's some odd news from the US that's for real.


Woman chewed up back seat of police car

No matter how angry you are at being arrested, don't eat the seats in the cop's car. Just don't.

An Idaho woman decided to chew up the back seat of a police car after being arrested in a pepper spray incident.

Staci Spence, 42, gnawed through the upholstery and foam cushioning of the back seat of a patrol vehicle.

She now faces a charge of malicious injury to property. If found guilty, she could be jailed for up to five years.


Teen calls police to break up his own party

It's Saturday night and your parents aren't home. What do you do? Throw a party, of course.

A Washington state teen did just that. Unfortunately, things didn't go quite as planned. 

The party, which was rife with underage drinking and drug use, quickly got out of control. Fights broke out and a rowdy bunch of people even broke down the fence of a neighbouring home.

The 16-year-old then called the cops to intervene.

Police arrested 27 people between the ages of 15 and 20 for possessing alcohol. An 18-year-old with an outstanding warrant for driving under the influence was also nabbed.

We're thinking this teen probably won't be too popular for a while.


Inmate recaptured after climbing basketball hoop to escape

A super fit felon managed to escape an Arizona detention centre after scaling a basketball hoop.

We don't blame the builders for constructing the hoop so close to the edge. Normal people wouldn't think of using a hoop as a ladder because, well, they can't.

Wade Cole Dickinson, 29, was on the run for more than two months.

The personal trainer was finally nabbed on Monday at an apartment in Las Vegas, officials said.
