Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A man stole a police car after and live streamed as he drove the car with lights and siren.
The Oklahoma man was able to take the car when the female police officer left her keys in her unlocked cruiser during a coffee break.
25-year-old John Pinney got into the police vehicle and drove off. He led police on a 30-minute chase. During the pursuit, Pinney recorded four separate Live Facebook videos.
At one point, he said that he was driving with his knees so that he can record the videos for his Facebook friends. He also stopped the police car, and got out to record the surroundings before speeding off again.
Police said that the Pinney reached a speed of 120 miles per hour during the pursuit. He eventually decided to stop at his parent's house, where he was arrested.
Pinney, who has a long criminal history, was charged with auto theft, possession of a firearm, and eluding police.
After the arrest, the police sergeant said that he would encourage every criminal out there to livestream their crime so that they can be caught and so that the video can be shown at their trial for a better chance of conviction.

*------------- A Little Off The Top -------------*
A hair dresser was jailed after pleading guilty to practicing medicine without a license and causing a man to lose his manhood. 49-year-old Nery Carvajal Gonzalez, who worked as a hairdresser in Miami, Florida, was sentenced to 40 months in prison, in a plea deal with prosecutors in which she agreed to testify against Mark Schreiber, who also worked as an unlicensed doctor. Gonzalez offered her customers body enhancement procedures. One man took her up on the offer, as her prices were low. The man told police that Gonzalez gave him butt injections and he was very happy with the results. He later returned to her for a penis enlargement. However, she botched the procedure. She then recommended that the victim should go to Schreiber, 61, who police said lost his license 10 years ago over botched plastic surgeries. Schreiber told the man that he will be removing the filler that was injected. However, he made things much worse after he mutilated the man's private parts, leaving it just 1 inch long. The victim is no longer able to have sex due to the botched procedure.
*----- California Town Invaded by Turkey(s) -----*
A California city has voted to remove and re-locate an increasing number of aggressive turkeys. One particularly aggressive Turkey, known as "Downtown Tom," prompted several residents of Davis, Calif., to call local police for help. "Yes, this is almost embarrassing. I am trying to get into my office on G Street in Davis and I have this huge turkey surrounding my car, circling me and I don't know what to do," one caller said. "I don't want to run it over but I can't stay in my car all morning, is there any advice you can give me?" The Davis City Council voted 4-1 in favor of a more than $20,000 trap-and-release program in response to the presence of up to 40 aggressive wild turkeys. The ordinance allows for lethal removal of the turkeys, including Downtown Tom, who managed to escape capture by wildlife officials. The city also placed signs in the downtown area giving residents tips for dealing with the aggressive fowl. "Be the dominant species, essentially," City Wildlife Resource Specialist John McNerney said, summarizing the advice. "Don't let it intimidate you, which can be difficult for some folks."

Lewis, those pilots have to stay awake somehow.
Louis, That Cookie Monster cosplayer wasn't in full garb--he should've been handing 'round cookies. Bet it would've helped stop that fight a lot faster. -LilyWilly
Geez, Lewis, were those 2 comments on Ouija Boards the best, as in the most intelligent, you got? If so, you're in trouble now! -Michelle Anthony
[Well, now that we have your rapier wit and cunning commentary to read we won't have to deal with the numbskulls.]
