Chef jailed for adding body hair in bagel

NEW JERSEY: A former chef has been given 15 days in jail after adding body hair, including pubic and chest hair, to a policeman's bagel, reports UK's daily Metro.

The officer had apparently booked the chef for a traffic offence, and Ryan Burke decided to get his own back.

Burke, from New Jersey, admitted that he slipped in his own chest and pubic hair into a turkey, egg and cheese bagel sandwich, said the newspaper.

The accused also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, of Evesham Police Department and retaliation for a past official action.

Burke will also serve two years of probation for the offence.

Woman paralysed after hickey causes stroke


NEW ZEALAND: A New Zealand woman was partially paralysed by a "love bite" on her neck which caused her to have a minor stroke.

The New Zealand Medical Journal reported that the 44-year-old woman went to the emergency department of Middlemore Hospital in Auckland last year after experiencing temporary loss of movement in her left arm while watching television.

Doctors concluded the woman had suffered a mild stroke but were puzzled about its cause until they found a small vertical bruise on her neck near a major artery - a love bite, or "hickey" - she received a few days earlier.

"Because it was a love bite there would be a lot of suction," one of the doctors who treated her, Teddy Wu, told the Christchurch Press.

"Because of the physical trauma it had made a bit of bruising inside the vessel. There was a clot in the artery underneath where the hickey was."

Dr Wu said the clot dislodged and travelled to the woman's heart, where it caused a minor stroke that led to the loss of movement.

"We looked around the medical literature and that example of having a love bite causing something like that hasn't been described before," he said.

The medic said the woman recovered after being treated with an anti-coagulant.
Man stabbed with screwdriver dies nine years after attack

LONDON: A 31-year-old former professional boxer was charged with the murder of a young man who died after spending nine years in a wheelchair following a screwdriver attack, reports Daily Mail.

Leigh Clift  was quizzed by police on suspicion of killing Jonathan Barton, who had a screwdriver thrust so forcibly into his head that it penetrated one side and came out the other.

The attack left the 19-year-old Tesco worker unable to move or speak but he defied all odds to survive the stabbing which happened outside a public house, for almost a decade.

However, when Jonathan finally passed away in his sleep in July 2009 - nine years after the night that changed his life - police immediately launched a murder inquiry to see if his death was linked to his original injuries, the paper revealed.

Post-graduates, MBAs turn robbers


NEW DELHI: They may have impressive resumes to approach any top company for a lucrative job but turned robbers for different reasons.
One wanted money as he lost his job due to recession, his MBA friend wanted to fly to US to meet his girlfriend and another working in an industrial group wanted a fatter purse to entertain his wife as well as his girlfriend, reveals Indian television news channel NDTV.
All of them landed in police net along with four associates in New Delhi following investigations into a case of robbers getting the signature of an NRI in three cheques on gunpoint and encashing them later.

The first to be arrested were Naved Khan, a post-graduate in Economics, and Mohd Savez, an MBA, and their interrogation led to the arrest of Kuldeep Tomar, a post-graduate in Economics, Ravi Kumar, Rahul Pawar, Gagan Deep, and Neeraj.

Khan, the gang leader, was working in various multinational companies for the last 10 years as an executive. Due to recession he had to go for a salary cut and was eventually thrown out of the job.
