Run DA Run........
A would-be burglar got more than he bargained for last Thursday when he fled from a mother of three who runs 5Ks for fun. According to NaplesNews.com, Betsy Stibler was awakened to the sound of a man rummaging through her father's car. She called 911, then followed the suspect on foot, reportedly saying to him, "You may as well stop. The police are coming. And if you are going to run, you better run fast and more than three miles, because I'm a runner."
The suspect, ID'd as Roy Wayne Hansen turned tail and ran, and as promised, Stibler kicked off her flip-flops and gave chase, pursuing him for a distance before he turned around and threatened her before he ran on.
Undaunted, Stibler kept chasing him, eventually cornering the suspect between two homes until cops grabbed him.
Glenmark Generics USA is voluntarily recalling seven lots of an oral contraceptives due to a packaging error, U.S. officials said.
Glenmark Generics Ltd. in India manufactured the tablets and Glenmark Generics USA distributed them in the United States from Sept. 21 to Dec. 30, officials said.
The recall was implemented because of a packaging error, where select blisters were rotated 180 degrees within the card, reversing the weekly tablet orientation and making the lot number and expiration date visible only on the outer pouch. Any blister for which the lot number and expiration date is not visible is subject to recall.
The seven lots of norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol oral contraceptives include:
-- 04110101, expiration date July 31, 2013.
-- 04110106, expiration date July 31, 2013.
-- 04110107, expiration date July 31, 2013.
-- 04110114, expiration date Aug. 31, 2013.
-- 04110124, expiration date Aug. 31, 2013.
-- 04110129, expiration date Aug. 31, 2013.
-- 04110134, expiration date Sept. 30, 2013.
As a result of the error, the daily regimen for these oral contraceptives may be incorrect and could leave women without adequate contraception, and at risk for unintended pregnancy, Glenmark officials said. The packaging defects do not pose any immediate health risks, but women affected by the error should begin using a non-hormonal form of contraception immediately, officials said.

A Minnesota man gave new meaning to the phrase "must see TV" by trying to sneak out of a store with a full-size television stuffed into his pants.
A police officer saw Eric Lee King drop a box of candy on his way out of the establishment and called after him, then noticed he was walking strangely. As he got closer, he saw that the man had a large rectangular bulge in his trousers and stopped him for questioning.
A search revealed that King had managed to get a 19-inch flat screen TV into his pants -- along with all the appropriate cables, a vial of Xanax and a bottle of brake fluid.
A Florida thug found out that money can't buy everything -- after trying to buy back the gun he dropped while trying to rob two men in a motel room.
Cedrick Mitchell barged into the room one night last week, demanding that the occupants give him some pills. When they declined, he pulled a gun and told them to hand over "everything you got."
They fought back, subduing him with pepper spray and causing him to drop his weapon. After clearing his head, Mitchell returned in a more polite mood, offering 40 bucks for the return of his gun -- only to receive a counter-offer of more pepper spray.
Officers responding to a 911 call from the men arrested Mitchell a short distance away.
Gerard Butler Out Of Rehab??? I Didn't Know He Was IN Rehab.....
So did anyone know that every ladies favorite man-candy had been in rehab for cocaine and perscription pill abuse?Gerard had been looking very thin lately. According to TMZ, the 300 star checked himself into the Betty Ford Center for treatment of cocaine and prescription pill abuse. The Scottish actor reportedly realized he was relying too heavily on prescription drugs to ease the pain from injuries he sustained while shooting 300 back in 2006, as well as injuries he suffered in a December surfing accident. As for the cocaine, sources say he had issues with the drug, but was really more concerned about his dependency on pills. Gerard checked out on Friday, and according to his manager, “he’s healthy.” In fact, Butler was spotted out in Malibu Friday enjoying lunch and reading a script.
Lambert Covers Gaga
Miranda Lambert’s On Fire Tour landed her in Greensboro, N.C. last week, where she did a smash up job of covering an artist not taken on by any other country artist until now. Miranda belted out Lady Gaga‘s ‘You and I and she adding enough of her sass and grit to make it sound like a Lambert original made famous by a pop star.
She made the song a bit more personal by changing the lyric “Nebraska guy” to “North Carolina guy,” which garnered big praise from the local audience. Then, the second time around she gave a subtle shout out to hubby Blake Shelton by changing the words to “Oklahoma guy.”
Lambert delivered such a solid and fun performance on this song that we’re left wondering if perhaps it has anything to do with her newfound friendship with the ‘Born This Way’ guise-sporting diva. After sitting beside the black veil-clad superstar at the 2012 Grammys, Lambert seemed to have a new appreciation for and friendship with Gaga. Like an excited kid on the playground who just found a new pal, Lambert tweeted “Y’all. I have a new friend! @ladygaga from NYC and a Texas girl. Who knew! She is really sweet! The odd couple… well not really!”
We don’t know how deep that friendship runs and whether or not the country star will be pulling Miss Gaga onstage with her anytime soon for a proper duet of ‘You and I,’ but her North Carolina performance was a nice tribute nonetheless.
A wanna-be shoplifter in Pennsylvania did a mighty poor job of trying to go unnoticed -- by walking into a Wal-Mart store stark naked and pulling on a pair of socks he intended to steal.
Verdon Lamont Taylor wasn't greedy: He'd stripped off the bulk of his clothing in the store's parking lot and left it there, choosing to make off with just a single pair of tube socks. Security guards chose not to approach the 6-foot-4, 300-pound Taylor and called cops for back-up.
Taylor, who'd been wandering around the store, went ballistic at the sight of the officers, prompting them to taser him -- before hauling him in on theft and indecent exposure charges.
Here's a video of how big papa tried to steal some tube socks in the buff, and below is a security camera shot of the would be theif entered the store...
Country star Dierks Bentley made one wounded soldier's dreams come true by handing him a $50,000 check to help support his struggling family.
Sergeant Chad Sparks was serving in Afghanistan when he lost a finger in a freak accident aboard his military tank.
He returned home to his wife and one-year-old daughter but struggled to find work, and the pair had to sell off furniture, appliances and personal items to make ends meet.
Touched by the veteran's story, the Long Trip Alone hit-maker dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday to meet the awe-struck couple and present the Sparks family with a hefty donation, adding, "We are so honored by your service and sacrifice and all you guys do."
A California man got some positive, but unwanted feedback after selling an old safe on E-Bay -- not realizing there was more than $25,000 in cash stashed inside.
James Labreque put the safe, which had been sitting around unused, up for grabs because he had no room for it -- and he didn't have the combination in order to open it. The buyer gave Labreque a thumbs-up on the transaction -- and shared the news about the little cash bonus on the auction site.
A frustrated Labreque asked for a cut of the dough, but was told "finders keepers." He says, "If I was in that situation, I'd say, 'Here man, I found this money. I'll give you half of it.'"
I'm not sure why you'd try to make Starbucks MORE expensive, but this guy did it. 22-year-old Logan Warren of Nacogdoches, Texas decided to figure out a combination for the most expensive drink POSSIBLE at Starbucks. Here's what he got:
--A Java Chip Frappuccino for $4.75 in a 31-ounce Trenta cup.
--16 shots of espresso for $12 and a shot of soy milk for 60 cents.
--A scoop of banana puree for $1, strawberry puree for 60 cents, protein powder for 50 cents, and Matcha powder for 75 cents.
--Plus caramel flavoring for 50 cents, vanilla beans for 50 cents, and a caramel and mocha drizzle for 60 cents.
Total cost? $23.60, not including the tip he gave the baristas for taking 20 MINUTES to make the drink. Logan actually didn't even pay for it . . . because he had a coupon for a free birthday drink.
He says the taste was, quote, "Tolerable but not good. Imagine a coffee-based health food smoothie." It also has 1,400 milligrams of caffeine . . . that's SO much that if you drank the whole thing, you'd probably end up in the hospital
A student who was looking to get a little extra credit with what he thought was a clever essay ended up tossed out of college for more than a year after his instructor objected to its title -- "Hot For Teacher."
Joseph Corlett, a 56-year-old part-time student, borrowed the title and theme of his essay about his fondness for his instructor from the classic Van Halen song. He says that the suspension took him by surprise, since he racked up a B-plus average writing essays with titles such as "The Boobs I Was Not Supposed to See."
Corlett, who is allowed to take online classes during his suspension, says he's fighting the decision, noting, "Guys have died on the battlefield so I can write naughty things in my English paper."
A Minnesota man couldn't quite make a clean getaway after a year-long stealing spree in which he lifted more than $25,000 worth of detergent from a supermarket near his home.
Patrick Paul Costanzo snuck the suds out of the store a few bottles at a time, stockpiling enough Tide to do more than 80,000 loads of laundry in the process. He was finally arrested last week after police examined security tape that showed him stealing the detergent four or five days a week for the entire month of January and the first week in February.
Sounds like he's in hot water -- unless his lawyer can spin things favorably.
If you felt Sunday night's Grammy Awards was a Chris Brown lovefest, you weren't alone.
Miranda Lambert wondered why the convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances (she also called Nicki Minaj's performance "strange").
On Monday, the country superstar tweeted "Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl ... Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys."
"Gunpowder" is a reference to Lambert's 2007 hit "Gunpowder and Lead." The lyrics describe a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband when he gets out of jail. "His fist is big but my gun's bigger. He'll find out when I pull the trigger," Sounds like someone is not ready to make nice... That's my kinda girl.. Check out the tweets from Monday below...
An Indiana man put in a bid for the title of world's most polite burglar when he broke into a woman's home and began folding her laundry before cooking himself dinner.
Ashley Murray says she came home to find Keith Davis in her kitchen, hovering over the stove sauteing a pan of chicken and onions. When she looked further, she found he'd done chores and decked out the sofa with a sheet and pillowcases.
When cops responded to her call, Davis insisted he was in his own home, and the woman was actually the one trespassing -- but the deputies didn't buy the excuse. Murray isn't sure about pressing charges, since, as she puts it, "He drunk up my orange juice, but it's cool because he swept up my floor and folded my clothes."
An off-duty Illinois cop is in a hurry to call a lawyer after trying to rush a pregnant woman through a Wal-Mart checkout -- by pulling a gun and threatening to shoot her.
Craig French was trying to protect the sanctity of the self check-out by picking a fight with the nine-months-pregnant woman, whose husband had gotten out of line to get some eggs that he had forgotten to add to the cart. Another customer saw French pull out his gun when the argument escalated and called for help.
French was not charged for the gunplay, but the husband was hauled off to jail for defending his wife by shoving the cop. Below is a picture of the husband and wife involved in the scurmish that led to the hubby being hauled off to jail for defending his pregnant wife.
Some cops in Florida won't have a leg to stand on when trying to explain the escape of a cocaine dealer who managed to briefly elude them -- by hopping away on his one leg.
The officers ultimately captured Ariosto Ryman, but not before he opened the door of his car and hopped down the sidewalk on a high rate of speed.
Deputies searched his car and found a large bag of marijuana, and when taken into the station for processing, they also found approximately five ounces of cocaine tucked inside a rather intimate orifice.
We'll bet he's kicking himself over being caught! - As for the cops, I hear that they'll be making Super Troopers 2 pretty soon and this would be a perfect addition to the storyline, WOW.
A Florida man who was busted for getting into a scuffle with his wife will have to answer that strike with another strike -- now that a judge has ordered him to take her bowling as part of his punishment.
Judge John Hurley gave very specific instructions to Thomas Bray, who reportedly got into it with wife Sonja after she yelled at him for failing to wish her a happy birthday. To make up for that offense, he was ordered to bring her flowers, then head out on a date right out of The Bachelor.
Hurley ruled, "He's going to go home, pick up his wife, get dressed, take her to Red Lobster. And then after they have Red Lobster, they're going to go bowling."
I wonder if he violates his probation if he'll be sentenced to the PIN-itenciary???
A California crook ended up behind bars after trying to rob a local bank by saying he had a bomb -- when he only had a cholesterol bomb!
Daniel Hegwood walked into the Wells Fargo branch carrying a bag that he claimed contained a bomb. He demanded and received cash, then fled, leaving the package-- which a bomb squad investigator determined contained two McDonald's apple pies.
Cops tracked him down in a nearby parking lot, at which point he insisted the bomb was actually in his backpack -- which turned out to contain nothing more than the cash he'd stolen from the bank.
AND THE BEST BREAKFAST FOODS ARE.....NOT WHAT YOU WOULD THINK:
Stop eating eggs, bacon, cereal, and fruit for breakfast. Just because they're popular doesn't mean they're right.
According to a nutritionist named Laurel House, the point of a good breakfast is to hit you with the right balance of protein, carbs, and healthy vegetables. So here are some smarter breakfast foods . . . most of which you'd never consider eating at 7:00 A.M.
--Chinese food like broccoli and beef or chicken.
--Veggie corn dogs.
--Huevos Rancheros . . . which might be the best breakfast food of all.
Billy Joel may have sung about having a bottle of red and a bottle of white, but a Chicago man outdid him -- by getting wasted, then peeing on a police station floor as he played air piano to pass the time.
Cops found Santa Ana Zuloaga-Campuzano passed out in his SUV surrounded by empty beer cans. He admitted he had consumed eight beers, three shots of tequila and three shots of cognac, but declined to take a breath test, saying, "What's the point, I know I'm drunk."
Shortly after being hauled in, the 30-year-old relieved himself on the floor, then treated officers to an air piano-accompanied song fest -- all while handcuffed.
