Another crazy week in crime. Lessons in how not to make a good first impression on your new job by showing up drunk and how it's probably not a good idea to pose with a stolen credit card:
1.Teacher shows up drunk on first day — without pants: As far as back-to-school outfits go, Lorie Ann Hill's was an ill-advised one. Oklahoma police say the Wagoner Public Schools teacher allegedly showed up to the job on Monday drunk—and then removed her pants.
2. Man arrested for acting like a ghost: A 24-year-old man in Britain thought it would be funny to act like a ghost in a cemetery, which is to say "he was throwing himself backwards, waving his arms about, and going 'wooooooo,'" says a prosecutor. Police, however, weren't amused. He pleaded guilty to "behavior likely to cause distress" and got fined $125.
3. Woman poses for clerk holding stolen credit card: A picture is worth a thousand words—and sometimes a possible jail sentence. Police in Ocala, Fla., are searching for a woman who used a stolen American Express credit card after a suspicious store clerk snapped a photo of her posing with it. Weirdly, the woman seemed to think it was a great idea.
4. Cops: Hungry burglar cooked crabcakes: Going to a restaurant for crabcakes and a few drinks isn't exactly unusual behavior in the mid-Atlantic states, but most people do it when the place is open. Not this guy, according to police.
5. Woman in trouble for slapping police horse: A woman in Scottsdale faces felony charges after police say she loudly smacked one of the department's horses on the butt outside a nightclub. She insists she was just petting, but police say the horse didn't think so.
