Greetings fellow Bizarros:
If you feel like dancin' (and wanna dance the night away), it is probably best if you don't do it in the middle of the night.
To loud music.
Outside on the street.
While dancing on top of a car.
And if you must do all of these things, you should most definitely NOT do what Danielle Lanae Jefferson did when police showed up.
Gainesville, Florida police said that they have arrested the 35-year-old woman after being accused of dancing to loud rap music, disturbing the peace in the neighborhood in middle of the night.
According to the criminal complaint, around 3:15 a.m. neighbors called police to report a woman who was playing loud music.
Police officers who arrived at the scene, found Jefferson twerking to rap music on top of her car. Neighbors claimed that Jefferson had been playing the music for over 20 minutes.
When asked to shut off the music, Jefferson refused. The police then issued her a noise warning and gave her 15 minutes to comply, but she ignored them.
She told police that they could arrest her if they wanted to.
The officers gave her a summons and asked her to sign it.
Instead of signing it, she crumpled the citation and tossed it at the chest of an officer, prompting her arrest. Jefferson told an officer that she thought he was cute and wanted to keep him around her.
Jefferson has been charged with resisting an officer without violence after throwing a citation at a police officer.

*--- Christmas Bulb Bandit Steals 150 Bulbs ---*
A Seattle woman whose home was targeted by a Christmas light-stealing "bulb bandit" said she eventually caught the culprit on video -- a neighborhood squirrel. Margaret Rican said the "Christmas bulb bandit" stole more than 150 bulbs from her outdoor decorations in the space of 24 hours before she managed to catch the thief on video. The video shows the squirrel running while holding a yellow Christmas bulb, while a second video shows the small animal jumping into a tree while carrying a blue bulb. A third video shows the squirrel repeating the jump, this time with an orange bulb. Rican wrote, "He has stolen 150 in 24 hours, carefully and precisely chewing through the wires to steal the bulb and bury them around the neighborhood. He's the hardest working rodent we've ever seen. and we are really pulling for him, and hoping he survives this winter. He's a quick little bandit, with really good hops."
*---------- The Drone Wars Have Begun ----------*
A man managed to chase a drone and capture it after it recorded him using the shower of his home, according to police in Utah. According to police, the drone was captured after a man got up early in the morning to prepare for work. He was in his bathroom taking a shower when he heard a buzz. He immediately recognized the noise as a flying drone. The man got into his truck and followed the drone in an attempt to find the owner. The drone landed in a church parking lot, but no one was there. The man took possession of the drone and called the police. When detectives examined what the drone had recorded, they found several videos of people in toilets and bedrooms. The videos also showed images of the suspected drone owner flying the device. The suspect had been convicted of voyeurism in the past for looking over walls in tanning salons.
*-------------- READER COMMENTS --------------*
Lewis, the copes are there to 'serve and protect'. Clearly this poor guy didn't need to be protected any more. But the vehicle was STILL in violation. They acted correctly.
That kind of this happens all the time. Wasn't there a story recently about a corpse who rode the subway in New York for 18 or 20 hours before somebody finally noticed the body hadn't moved? The world is a cold, hard place.
That guy in Manhattan who stole the gold out of the back of a truck got that idea from Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. the police should start looking for a guy dressed like Clint Eastwood in 'A Fistful of Dollars' who calls himself Bronco.
