Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Police in New York, saved a man's life after he choked on drugs. The police officers in Buffalo, performed the Heimlich maneuver on the coking man, and he coughed up a bag of cocaine.

Police said that officers Omar Rodriguez and Sean McCabe, were on patrol when they saw a man sitting outside a vacant house at about 6:00 p.m.

Officers stopped to speak to 23-year-old Bryan Ramos. When they approached, Ramos placed what appeared to be a box of cigarettes in his mouth, according to an arrest report.

Officers tried to stop him from swallowing the item, but Ramos resisted. Officers then used pepper spray to get him to the ground. Ramos began to have difficulty breathing and turned purple so McCabe quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver on him.

Officers said that Ramos coughed up the cigarette package that contained a plastic bag of cocaine.

Ramos was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and trespassing.

Ramos claimed that the drugs did not belong to him. He told police that his cousin asked him to hold the bag of cocaine for him.

*------ World Gravy Wrestling Championship -----*

More than 20 competitors gathered at a pub in England to battle each other in a pool of gravy for the World Gravy Wrestling Championships, because apparently wrestling in it is preferable to eating it, like much of British food. "The Weather is fine and the Gravy is wet," the World Gravy Wrestling Championships Facebook page wrote on the day of the event. "A Fun Family day filled with hilarious wrestling moves and costumes in a thick Lancashire Gravy." According to the BBC, hundreds of people watched as 16 men and eight women participated in two minute bouts inside a padded 14 foot by 13 foot pool to determine a champion. Event organizer Andy Holt said the competition is "harder than it looks" and admitted that the aim of the competition is not necessarily designed to determine the best fighter. "The points system is more about entertainment," he said. "It is crazy, but it is all about having fun and it is for a great cause."

P.S. If you're into British women covered in gravy, you might want to do a Google image search of this event.


*--- Pennsylvania Man Feeling a Little Horse ---*

Police in Pennsylvania say a man admitted to attempting to have sex with a small horse. Officers were dispatched to investigate an incident in West Cocalico Township. Authorities say witnesses saw a car stop near a barn, watched the driver go inside for a short time and then leave. They noted the vehicle's license plate and provided the information to police. Officers traced the plate to the home of 21-year-old Travis Wagner. Investigators say Wagner told police he had entered the barn for the purpose of engaging in sexual intercourse with a miniature horse that was inside. Wagner has been charged with one count of Burglary, a Felony of the second degree and one count of Sexual Intercourse with an Animal, which is a second degree Misdemeanor.

Lewis, I can sympathize with that woman who drove her SUV through a Safeway because they refused to serve her. I went to have my car washed recently, and they refused to wash it by hand. I was so mad I drove my car straight through the wash.

People keep sharks as pets in Australia? Do they keep sand gardens in their back yards, too? I thought if you wanted to see a shark in Australia you just go to the beach.
