Seattle Police save the day:
A woman gets out of an Uber on Capitol Hill late Saturday night but she leaves her purse in the Uber car – she has her phone so she calls the uber guy to ask him to come back – she tells the Uber driver she will pay that extra fair for him to come back but the creepy uber driver demands EVEN more money for the return.
So the woman calls Seattle SPD and officer Eric Michl comes to the rescue and calls the driver but the driver doesn’t pick up, so then the cop sends a text telling the driver he could be arrested if he didn’t return the woman’s purse. To prove he was a police officer, Michl also sends a selfie. A photo of his stern and deadly serious self – a man you do not want to mess with.
The driver quickly brought the woman’s purse back, saying he’d been busy taking other fares.
Dateline OLYMPIA — another funky bill has been introduced into the washington state legislature – this one’s about Sasquatch. A senator from La Center wants Sasquatch to be the “official cryptid” of our state. A cryptid is an “animal whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated.” Sen. Ann Rivers says that Sasquatch — or Bigfoot or Forest Yeti — has “made immeasurable contributions to Washington state’s cultural heritage and ecosystem.”
Guns N’ Roses is taking some heat after a small flub at a show. The band was getting ready to take the stage in Melbourne Tuesday when their longtime guitar tech and announcer “McBob” mistakenly asked the “Sydney” crowd to welcome the band. Fans booed the mistake and posted humorous remarks on social media to which the band later responded, “Accidentally, after 30 years McBob made an error. We’re truly sorry.”
