WEIRD NEWS STORIES OF THE WEEK

Girl Claims Price Scanner Gave Her Tourette's
An Erie County jury has been asked to decide whether a 12-year-old girl was burned and later developed psychological problems when a convenience store clerk allegedly aimed a hand-held price scanner at her face.

A clerk allegedly called the girl "grumpy" before flashing his hand-held bar code scanner over her face and telling her to smile. Attorneys for [the girl] and her guardian say [she] was sensitive to light and burned, and later developed post-traumatic stress and Tourette's syndrome.

An attorney for the store says the scanner uses a harmless LED light and that the child had serious health problems before the incident.
Man Arrested For Intentionally Vomiting 11-Year Old Girl
Weird News - Man Spits on 11 Year Old Girl
A New Jersey man is facing charges after police say he intentionally vomited on an 11-year-old girl and her father in the stands during a Phillies game. [He] was arraigned Friday on charges stemming from his behavior at Wednesday night's Phillies-Nationals game.

Police say Clemmens made himself vomit on an off-duty police captain and his daughter after a companion was kicked out for unruly behavior. Easton police Capt. Michael Vangelo says he saw Clemmens put his fingers down his throat. Philadelphia police say Clemmens also punched Vangelo and vomited on an arresting officer.
Man Called Police Claiming He Was Raped By Whale
A British prankster pleaded guilty to making numerous hoax emergency calls, including a claim that he had been raped by a whale.

Daniel Hammond, 21, pleaded guilty before magistrates in Sevenoaks, England, to making several hoax calls to the 999 emergency number between Aug. 4, 2009, and March 3 of this year. Prosecutors said the calls included a claim that his genitals fell off because he smoked too much marijuana before sex and a Saddam Hussein imitation featuring a bomb threat against a train. "The defendant's calls started with claims he'd been raped by a whale but became more threatening as the months went by, and during the last call he told an operator he'd planted a bomb on a commuter train,"

Defense attorney Laura Hollingham said her client suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Student Steals 79 Thongs
Police say a 19-year-old Michigan State University student who pilfered 79 pairs of women's panties faces possible charges.
East Lansing Police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor tells The Detroit News all 79 items were thongs. McGlothian-Taylor says the suspect, who has not been named, was arrested April 7 after another student saw him taking underwear from a dryer in a dorm basement laundry room.
 
Police have been investigating since March 22, when someone reported the theft of 15 pairs of panties from the same laundry.

The man told police it was a prank and denied having a sex addiction.
NY State Employee Takes Fridays Off For 17 Years, Nobody Notices
A longtime state prison system employee could face criminal charges after watchdogs revealed yesterday that he took a three-day weekend — every week for 17 years.

The probe by state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and Inspector General Joseph Fisch found that correction officials looked the other way as Howard Dean -- a retired food-services director -- fleeced the state treasury out of nearly $500,000 with the phony scheme and a host of ill-gotten perks.
 
About $230,000 of that was the fifth day of the week that Dean was supposed to work but didn't. Probers said he needs to pay back the taxpayers and are looking at going after his pension. He also charged taxpayers for 75 stays at the local Quality Inn on nights E-ZPass records suggest he was at home. Dean earned an annual salary of $112,743 for running the facility that provides three hot meals a day to 57,000 inmates. He draws a $57,381 state pension.
