    James "Shannon" Arnett, a Polk County, Florida high school teacher and an assistant football coach, who was concerned the thumb drive he lost might fall into the wrong hands because it had defensive football plays. Well it was authorities who grew even more concerned when they learned that the drive not only contained defensive football plays, but offensive kiddy porn. A student found the thumb drive and gave it to the school's resource deputy. On it, they found images of female students between 13-17 years and a variety of child pornography. A search of Arnett's work lap-top computer yielded additional photos of young females students at the high school.

    Etta Mae Lopez, 31, who deliberately slapped a Sacramento, California cop so she could get placed in jail to help her quit smoking. Lopez wanted to quit smoking and had failed on numerous previous attempts. When she learned the Sacramento County jail was a non-smoking facility, she decided to have herself admitted. So she slapped a cop in the face. She's been charged with misdemeanor battery on a police officer and was sentenced. Hopefully it will be long enough for her to kick the habit.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....
    Twenty-eight-year-old Carlos Robert Medina Perdomo, who was caught trying on earrings in a home he broke into. The resident told police she had arrived home and found a stranger standing in her bathroom trying on her earrings. The man left after the woman confronted him, but was found nearby on the street with a pair of diamond studded earrings in his pocket.


    A thief in Houston, who almost burned himself to death while siphoning a few gallons of gas. Surveillance cameras in a U-Haul storage facility captured the man siphoning gas. There were two sparks before a blast lit up the sky, sending fire and smoke into the air. The man whose clothes were on fire escaped into his white Ford Explorer. The cameras did not capture a license plate number, however police are looking for the vehicle with significant fire damage.
