    UPLAND, Calif. (KABC) -- Video released Thursday shows a traffic stop where police say a fake cop tried to pull over a real cop in Upland.

    You could see the lights from an accused police impersonator's Jeep Wrangler.

    Authorities say 23-year-old Imroj Singh flipped on his red and blue lights while unknowingly trying to stop a detective who was in an unmarked car on the 210 Freeway near Baseline Street.

    The Rancho Cucamonga detective realized the man wasn't an officer and put on his real lights and sirens.

    The Jeep sped off but eventually stopped and the driver got out.

    Police say Singh bought the police lights on the internet and had them installed in his vehicle's front grill to make it look like he was an undercover law enforcement vehicle.

    Singh was arrested and is facing a misdemeanor charge for impersonating a peace officer.

    He's set to be arraigned on August 5.

    Detectives believe that Singh may have previously used the police lights to stop other citizens. Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Rancho Cucamonga Police Detective Division at 909-477-2800. If you choose to remain anonymous, you may call the We-Tip hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.

    Florida Man's Hand, Foot, Found In Alligator's Stomach

    https://patch.com/florida/lakeland/f...gators-stomach

    FORT MEADE, FL ? A Florida man's hand and foot were found in the stomach of an alligator that was removed from a canal Thursday along with the 45-year-old man's body, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

    The agency's Carrie Horstman identified the man as Michael Ford II of Wauchula but said it was not yet clear what role the alligator played in Ford's death, if any.

    "An autopsy revealed that Ford had other lacerations and injuries caused by the gator, and his apparent cause of death is drowning, although his final cause and manner of death are pending toxicology," Horstman said.

    The body was found in Polk County off Peeples Road, west of County Road 630. A 9-1-1 caller reported seeing the body to the Polk County Sheriff's Office around 7:43 a.m. (listen to the call below) Thursday on property belonging to the Mosaic Company. The company uses the land to mine and process phosphate rock for phosphate fertilizer production.

    "When he was found by a Mosaic employee, a large alligator had a part of Ford's body in his mouth," Horstman explained. "When first responders arrived on scene, the gator had disengaged."

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission trapped and killed the alligator, and a necropsy was performed, according to Horstman.

    Investigators found a truck nearby and determined that it belonged to a friend of Ford's who had recently agreed to sell it to him.

    "Neither the friend nor Ford's family had heard from him since Sunday, June 23, 2019, "Horstman added.

    Serina Wolfe, (24)who gave server generous $5,000 tip allegedly used her boyfriend's credit card for revenge

    https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/woma...105659424.html

    A woman, who was praised for her generosity after leaving a hefty $5,000 tip for a server at Clear Sky Cafe in Clearwater, Fla., has been arrested and charged with grand theft for allegedly using her boyfriend's credit card after he refused to buy her a plane ticket back to New York.

    Serina Wolfe, 24, allegedly used her boyfriend's credit card without his knowledge after he would not buy her a plane ticket back home to Buffalo, N.Y., Fox 2 Now reports. While Wolfe's boyfriend had initially put a hold on his credit card, so Wolfe would not be able to use it to buy the ticket, he eventually lifted it. Wolfe then allegedly used the card to leave a tip of $5,000 on a bill that cost $55.37, which was reported four days ago by multiple outlets.

    It is not known if the server will get to keep the money. The restaurant has already paid out the tip to the server. However, Wolfe's boyfriend marked the charge as fraudulent.

    Wolfe had, at first, denied making the purchase, and her boyfriend believed she was either drunk or trying to exact revenge. She voluntarily gave her boyfriend's card to deputies and was arrested for grand theft.

    Christopher Kratzer, (19) and Ava Coleman, (17) accused of a fake kidnapping meant to get youtube attention

    https://patch.com/georgia/cumming/te...oax-collection

    CUMMING, GA ? Two teens who were reportedly trying to gain popularity online for their prank channel on YouTube have now gained notoriety in a more infamous way after being arrested. And police have a stern warning for anyone considering a similar stunt.

    "If you want to create a social media following, I would strongly dissuade you from this stupidity," Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman said. "Good, armed citizens might have been justified in using force to stop what they legitimately believed was a kidnapping. Committing a criminal act for social media likes will get you arrested in Forsyth County, that's not the kind of attention most people want to have."

    On Wednesday, July 3, around 6 p.m., the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office received multiple 911 calls from people at The Collection shopping center about a woman being possibly abducted. The reports by callers said a female was reportedly yelling for help and tied up with a covering over her head inside of a Chevrolet Tahoe or similar SUV, the department said.

    More than half of the entire contingent of deputies in South Forsyth responded to intercept this Tahoe with a reported victim, the department said. Deputies were traveling with their lights and sirens activated, trying to help to the victim. This type of driving is not without risk to the public and the deputies, the sheriff's office said.

    The Tahoe was stopped by an off-duty Gwinnett County Police officer who heard about the reported abduction. Johns Creek Police joined in on the traffic stop because the chase crossed into their city limits. Forsyth County Sheriff's officers also responded to the location.

    The driver of the Tahoe was identified as Christopher Kratzer, 19, and the occupant (alleged kidnapping victim) was Ava Coleman, 17, both from Forsyth County.

    Investigators say that Kratzer and Coleman were filming a kidnapping prank for a YouTube channel video.

    Authorities say the stunt alarmed the public, creating apprehension and panic that caused members of the public to feel unsafe and to report it to law enforcement, FCSO said.

    Both Kratzer and Coleman were charged with reckless conduct and raising a false public alarm and were booked into the Forsyth County Jail. Kratzer also was arrested for felony probation violation.

    Untimely flatulence leads to arrest of criminal hiding from Missouri law enforcement

    https://www.thedenverchannel.com/new...aw-enforcement

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. ? If you're wanted for a felony and hiding from law enforcement, what's the best way to avoid arrest?

    Well, for starters, don't let one rip .

    The Clay County Sheriff's Office tweeted Tuesday that one unlucky felon did just that over the weekend, and the noise from the passed gas led deputies right to him.

    They followed up the tweet by saying that the person had a felony warrant in Clay County for possession of a controlled substance.

    "We?ve gotta give props to Liberty Police for using their senses to sniff him out!" Deputy Jon Bazzano told KSHB.

    WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. -- Police are seeking a woman who they say urinated on potatoes at a Walmart in western Pennsylvania.

    West Mifflin police posted surveillance photos on their Twitter account. It is not known when the incident took place.


    A Walmart representative told WPXI-TV an employee saw what the woman was doing.

    In a statement, Walmart told the station "it immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area."

    Walmart says it is working with police to find the person and have her prosecuted.

    In Texas, sheriff's deputies are investigating after a video surfaced on social media depicting a teen urinating on a shelf at a Walmart store.

    The incident comes weeks after video posted on social media showed people licking ice cream from freezers at Walmarts in Texas and Louisiana.

    . EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – A Lower Valley carpet store known for poking fun at local politics on its marquee is taking aim at Ysleta ISD after its superintendent allegedly head-butted the leader of another local district in San Antonio last month.

    As KTSM reported, the YISD board of trustees voted on Tuesday to suspend Superintendent Xavier De La Torre without pay for three days for not immediately notifying board members about the fight involving Socorro ISD Superintendent Jose Espinoza.

    SISD Superintendent Jose Espinoza (left) and YISD Superintendent Xavier De La Torre (right)
    Located at 1206 Giles, the sign outside of Freeway Carpets & Wood Floors reads, “YISD code of ethics prohibits headbutts, unless, the dude is totally (expletive)-faced.”

    The message refers to the police report that inferred De La Torre was intoxicated during the incident.

    The suspect “appeared to be intoxicated due to the odor of intoxicants emitting from his person, slurred speech, and red bloodshot eyes,” according to the report.

    YISD board members voted 7-0 after meeting in executive session for more than four hours on Tuesday.

    College athlete arrested after police mistake bird poop for cocaine

    A drug charge has been dropped against a Georgia Southern quarterback after a white substance he identified as bird poop on his car's hood tested negative for cocaine.

    A Saluda County Sheriff's Office police report said deputies pulled Shai Werts over for speeding July 31 and noticed two white spots on his car they thought were cocaine. The report says Werts told them it was bird poop he had tried to wash off. The deputies then did a field test that came back positive for cocaine and charged him with possession of the drug.

    Werts' lawyer Townes Jones IV told The Savannah Morning News more sophisticated lab testing showed the substance was not cocaine and the drug charge was dropped.

    Jones says prosecutors told him the original speeding charge remains.

    I hope they're reviewing all the cases they ran with those same dodgy drug tests & all the cases that came via those particular officers, because something's not right with that false-positive
