One Numb-Nut Deserves Another: Stun Gun-Wielding Pregnant Woman Attacks Bike Messenger

A bike messenger in Washington state will most likely be a little more cautious about road rage after he was attacked by a stun gun-wielding pregnant woman last week. According to KOMO News.com, the messenger was crossing a Seattle street at a crosswalk last Friday when a car stopped abruptly at the crosswalk and started honking at him. The messenger told police he yelled something at the driver, kicked the car without causing any damage, and then continued to cross the road. But when he reached the other side, the car’s pregnant passenger got out, pulled a stun gun from her bra, and started screaming as she moved toward the messenger. He says he tried to get a way, but the woman allegedly caught up with him and hit him twice in the face. The car’s driver had also whipped out his own stun gun and started swinging it at the messenger during the attack. The couple eventually got back in their car and drove away. And while the messenger wasn’t severely injured, police are still looking for the angry commuters.

Man’s Vacation Photos Lead To Prison For Faking Disabilities

A Swedish man is looking at four years in prison and fines of more than 800-thousand dollars thanks to vacation photos from his trip to Egypt. According to TheLocal.se, the unnamed man claimed 806-thousand dollars from the Social Insurance Agency between 2006 and 2012 because he said he was bound to a wheelchair and unable to walk, eat or dress himself.

An Attorney for Lindsay Lohan says New York City prosecutors will not charge her in an alleged fight at a Manhattan nightclub in November.

Attorney Marc Heller says the actress faces no formal charges after prosecutors were unable to gather sufficient evidence to prove the case.

A spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance declined to comment.

Lohan was arrested Nov. 29 on a charge of misdemeanor assault after an encounter with a woman at the club Avenue in the city’s trendy Meatpacking District.

The accuser’s lawyer Gloria Allred says her client is “disappointed” that the district attorney’s office decided not to prosecute. She says her client is considering her options in the civil justice system.
