From ABC News:
Roche, 33, said he shaved 10 seconds off the previous best time of 22 seconds that day, earning him bragging rights and a $50 gift certificate to Ruth's Chris Steak House. But the glory was short-lived: Later, at home, he started to feel sick.
"Two hours later I was laying on the couch, shaking uncontrollably, nauseous, having fevers and panting," said Roche, who works in sales.
Roche ended up spending three days in the hospital. But hey, sweet gift card!
BBC's Middle East correspondent Quentin Sommerville got a little loopy when reporting a bit too close to a pile of burning opium, her0in and hash in Afghanistan 4 years ago.
And now the news blooper has been posted online as a Christmas gift to his viewers.
"Dear tweeps, it's been a year of bullets & bloodshed. You've earned a xmas laugh, at my expense," he wrote on Twitter, with a link to the video entitled "Don't inhale."
Both the original Tweet and the video have since been removed, but numerous copies were already uploaded.
According to a BBC spokesman, "The video of Quentin corpsing, which has now been deleted, was posted in the spirit of a blooper. It was filmed four years ago – it hasn't been seen before and was never broadcast."
Sommerville continued to joke about the incident on Twitter.
A local Fox news affiliate in Baltimore has apologized for erroneously using a video clip of a protest to illustrate anti-police sentiment calling it an "honest misunderstanding."
In the video above, from a WBFF Fox45 news segment, a woman is heard chanting "kill a cop," which would indeed be startling if it were true, especially in light of the recent shootings in New York. But it's not.
Unfortunately for everyone involved, this is taken completely out of context, as many pointed out.
The original clip is from a "Justice For All" March in Washington, D.C., and the woman featured in the video, Tawanda Jones, is not asking for anyone to be killed.
"We won't stop! We can't stop! Till killer cops are in cell blocks!" she says as you can hear below (at 0:42).
A Pennsylvania man is terrorizing his neighbors with his unusual holiday decorations, which includes a beheaded choir, a hanging Mickey Mouse and a urinating Santa Claus.
"There was a Virgin Mary here, and he placed a knife through her head, right there on the edge of our driveway," said one woman "I thought it was a terroristic threat."
The owner of the home, Bill Ansell, leaves the decorations up all year. He once had one of the best decorated homes on the block, but a complaint from one of his neighbors about bright lights turned into an all out war that has gone on for the past 6 years, according to 20/20.
The neighbors say they feel trapped, and despite being fined numerous times, he has yet to clean up his yard.
Here's a report on Ansell from a few years ago via KDKA-TV:
