Somehow the story is even worse than that sounds.

Kam Brock, @Akilahbrock, was pulled over by New York police and her car impounded when officers suspected she was driving under the influence of marijuana (none was found in the vehicle). After getting upset with officers and undergoing a medical evaluation, doctors thought she was suffering from a mental disorder - thinking her claims of being followed by Barack Obama on Twitter were bunk.

The only problem is that Barack Obama DOES follow @AkilahBrock, and around 640,000 other people. And now Brock is faced with thousands in medical bills after being sent to a facility. She's now pursuing legal action as a result of these stupid, insane events.

A 34-year-old New Zealand man convicted of shoplifting failed to show up for his court date. When the police asked about him on their Facebook page, he responded and had just two words to say to them: "hoo rah." Whether it's a taunt or an inarticulate cry of protest is open for interpretation.

Hagger claimed he had felt too ill to go to court, and is currently "planning on getting in touch with" the police.
