You know those terrible "Flatizzas" Subway makes? After ordering one without the sauce (because "I can't eat that stuff"), Bevalente Michette Hall called the police. She was later jailed for three minutes on a $2,000 bail for her efforts. Here's the 911 call, for those interested:

It's understandable that KOMO 4 news in Seattle might be a bit nostalgic for the era of the Supersonics, but let's at least try to keep it within the same sport.

Do you wanna build a snowman, in jail?

The Harlan City Police Department in Kentucky issued an arrest warrant on Wednesday (via Facebook) for Queen Elsa from “Frozen,” blaming her on all the terrible weather.

All points bulletin!!! HPD has issued an arrest warrant for Queen Elsa of Arendelle. Suspect is a blonde female last seen wearing a long blue dress and is known to burst into song “Let it Go!” As you can see by the weather she is very dangerous. Do not attempt to apprehend her alone.



A few weeks ago, a police department in New Hampshire pulled a similar stunt, but targeting the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil who predicted 6 more weeks of winter.

The Harlan police have since gotten quite a bit of media attention and were a bit surprised.

“Wow. We were just having a little fun and didn’t expect this,” they said. “But as a reminder, do take the precautions you need to keep you, your friends, family, neighbors and pets safe during the snow queen’s mad spell.”

In all seriousness, the abnormally cold weather is starting to get really old Mother Nature.

Hopefully the CIA will be able to locate the evil mastermind soon and put an end to all of this nonsense.

"The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board agreed with our clients that the team's name and trademarks disparage Native Americans. The Board ruled that the Trademark Office should never have registered these trademarks in the first place," Jesse Witten, the plaintiffs' lead attorney, said in a press release. "We presented a wide variety of evidence – including dictionary definitions and other reference works, newspaper clippings, movie clips, scholarly articles, expert linguist testimony, and evidence of the historic opposition by Native American groups – to demonstrate that the word 'redskin' is an ethnic slur."
The team will appeal the case, according to a statement from its attorney, and it will be able to keep its trademark protection during appeal. Further, losing the trademark would not force the team to change its name.
Here's one suggestion:
