Police say the driver they pulled over on a Twin Cities interstate readily admitted that he was going 100 miles per hour. However, he blamed it on being Canadian.

Dalmar A. Ali, 22, of Toronto, was ticketed for speeding on southbound Interstate 35W near 66th Street in Richfield on a dark and rainy July 12 night.

Ali was stopped and acknowledged “passing other traffic like he was standing still,” the citation filed last week read.

He went on to explain that he’s from Canada, where vehicle speedometers reading 100 are measuring kilometers per hour, not miles per hour. A speed of 100 kph converts to about 62 mph.

Metric mix-up or not, Ali is due in court on Sept. 13 for his arraignment. Any fine, if there is one, will have to be paid in U.S. dollars.

Wyoming can be an interesting place.

The unbelievable call of the night: Ashley Basich went and obtained an industrial forklift from her employer, Sate(sic) of Wyoming (of course her boss did not know) to move a van that was blocking her driveway. Her neighbors were not happy since this was at Midnight and called us. We arrested her for DUI. Yes, she had a cooler of beers in the cab and was wearing flip flops (possible OSHA violation) #midnightmove

Ah yes, the things we'd all like to do but don't. :laugh: It would have been extra points if she'd stuck the forks in thru the side windows like metal recyclers do. :shock:

Lube causes sticky situation at Empire Mall

Someone's fashion choice caused a slight scare at the Empire Mall Thursday.

Police responded to a report of a suspicious substance, what someone thought might have been gasoline, that was left in a Younkers dressing room around 1:15 p.m.

It wasn't gasoline.

Somebody was using lubricant to try to wiggle back into their leather clothing after trying on a few other clothing items, said Sioux Falls Police Sgt. Ryan Flogstad.

Nobody was arrested.

Newsflash; if you need lubrication in order to get your clothes on, either your clothes are too small or you're too fat. :roll:
Note: There are exceptions to this guideline; namely, shapely young women. But even that can be overdone.

I miss home. Such great entertainment.
Police arrested a 21-year-old Parker man Monday after they say he stole a vehicle just after being released from Pipestone (Minn.) County jail and drove it down to Sioux Falls to meet with his probation officer.

Ashton Brooks White Olsen is charged with one count of possession of a stolen vehicle.

Lt. Kyle Hoekstra of the Sioux Falls Police Department said White Olsen took a car that had been left running. Hoekstra said the cold temperatures and the fact that White Olsen didn’t have a vehicle were the likely the motivation behind the theft.
Sounds like something out of the Fargo series. ;)

Two San Diego County shopping malls swarmed by thousands of street racers performing stunts

"They apparently first started gathering in the Carmel Valley area of San Diego, where police got numerous complaints, including a report of 1,000 cars racing up and down Carmel Country Road.
By the time they reached Westfield North County shopping mall on Via Rancho Parkway, police estimated their numbers at 4,000."


A thousand is one thing, but four thousand? I think that qualifies as an infestation :laugh:. Now, GET OFF OF MY LAWN!

I don't get it. How could there be that many cars there? Sounds like whoever counted the cars was at the inauguration.

From the 3-23-18 Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

A teenage driver’s attempt to get her license didn’t go so well. In fact, her behind-the-wheel test on Wednesday in Buffalo, Minn., failed at the start as she crashed into the driver’s examination station before she even got on the road. The 17-year-old from Monticello inadvertently put the 2014 Chevy Equinox into drive instead of reverse as the test began about 2 p.m., bringing the test to a halt. When she stepped on the accelerator, the vehicle lurched forward, jumped the curb and plowed through the front of the station in a strip mall on 1st Avenue S., said Buffalo Police Chief Pat Budke. She was not hurt, but her vehicle suffered significant damage, the chief said. The examiner, a 60-year-old woman from Buffalo, was taken to a local hospital with noncritical injuries. No one inside the office was hurt, Budke said. No charges will be filed, Budke said.

LONDON, KY. – Authorities say a Kentucky man has been arrested after he threw a ham at a woman during an argument over which day Christmas dinner should take place.

WAVE-TV reports that David Brannon was arrested Sunday after he tried to flee from police officers who reported to a home on a domestic dispute call.

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office said Brannon threw items at the woman, including the ham to be eaten for Christmas dinner.

Deputies say several items were found on the kitchen floor.

Brannon is being held in the Laurel County Correctional Center on charges of assault and fleeing or evading police. Online jail records do not show if he has a lawyer.
