RULES ARE RULES

A group of sunbathing nudists in the Czech Republic were recently told they needed to cover up, just not in the way that most would expect. While they were completely free to remain nude, local ordinances required that they keep their mouths covered due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

HE ALREADY HAS A FLORIDA LICENSE, SO THERE WAS NO NEED TO ISSUE HIM ONE

A Florida man who drank a bottle of wine that he was unable to pay for at a Winn-Dixie then fled the store, ran a red light and caused a hit-and-run crash all with an 11-year-old girl in tow, according to the DeLand Police Department.

Sounds legit: The suspect denied driving the vehicle and instead pointed the blame at an unknown man named “John,” but a woman and an 11-year-old girl who were in the black Hyundai let officers know that Roe was indeed behind the wheel, the report said.
