Illinois man with name tattooed on neck allegedly gave police false ID

An Illinois man was arrested after he allegedly gave police a fake name… despite having his real name tattooed on his neck.

Matthew Bushman, 36, supposedly gave the false ID and birthdate to officers with the Mattoon Police Department, who were investigating a forgery, on Oct. 8.

Authorities wrote on Facebook Tuesday that Bushman — or “Matty B,” as his tattoo states — had a warrant out for his arrest in Peoria County, and so he lied about his name.

He was arrested on Oct. 11 for obstructing justice, police said. He was booked at the Coles County Jail.

These creepy artificial skin cases makes phones pinchable, ticklish

Ever feel like your smartphone is becoming an extension of yourself? This newly developed phone case breaks down even more barriers between you and your phone with a life-like “skin” which alleged responds to human contact such as pinching and tickling.

HACKERS ARE DRAINING ATMS ACROSS THE US 

Marc Teyssier and his colleagues at Telecom Paris in France have devised an artificial skin for technology devices that detects and interprets a variety of gestures. For example, slapping the case indicates anger, and pinching or pulling its skin indicates an upset user. If a user tickles the accessory, it releases a laughing emoji onto the phone.

“I wanted to pinch my phone,” Teyssier told the New Scientist when asked why he designed such a skin.

In a paper released Saturday, researchers build on a long history of artificial skin in the field of robotics to harvest “interactive properties of the skin that are specifically useful for human computer interaction.” In essence, the researchers believe the phone skin could increase user expressiveness.

The researchers developed “Skin-On” prototypes for smartphones, touchpads and also a wristband for smartwatches. According to the paper, “Skin-On interfaces provide natural physical affordances,” meaning users are more likely to explore the interface and discover new controls.

The creepily realistic skin layer is comprised of one layer of stretchable copper wire in between two layers of silicone. Applying pressure on the skin changes the electrical charge of the wiring.

The Telecom team’s work will be presented this week at the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology in New Orleans.

The team has big plans for the future, such as to make the skin more realistic with embedded hair and temperature features. They may also look to include larger surfaces, as they said one participant put forth the idea of a Skin-On wall. Their paper also mentioned changing the texture of the skin, such as with sweat or goosebumps, to indicate disgust or frustration.

“More generally, our goal is to further explore various types of anthropomorphism towards human-like devices,” the paper concluded.

“The idea is perhaps a bit surprising, but skin is an interface we are highly familiar with so why not use it and its richness with the devices we use every day?” Dr. Anne Roudaut, a professor in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Bristol and co-author of the study, said in a press release.

“This work explores the intersection between man and machine,” Roudaut said, according to Popular Mechanics. “We have seen many works trying to augment humans with parts of machines, here we look at the other way around and try to make the devices we use every day more like us, i.e. human-like.”

Texas longhorn named Bucklehead breaks world record for horn span: See the pics

A Texas longhorn named Bucklehead broke the world record for the longest horn span at a showcase this month, according to a report.

The 6-year-old longhorn from Rocksprings, Texas, measured 11 feet, 1.8 inches from tip to tip of his horns at the Horn Showcase in Oklahoma on Oct. 4-5, unofficially breaking the Guinness World Record.

The previous record was 10 feet, 7.4 inches set by an Alabama longhorn named Poncho Via, according to the San Angelo Standard-Times.

SCOTTISH FARMERS LOSE DAMAGES CLAIM AFTER NEIGHBOR’S BULL IMPREGNATED THEIR COW

Bucklehead’s owners have submitted paperwork so the new record can be deemed official and the longhorn’s mark can appear in the 2020 edition of the record book.

Marceala Gonzalez, 14, Bucklehead’s owner, won the longhorn five and a half years ago at a drawing where five breeders were donating steers. She got to pick whichever one she wanted and chose baby Bucklehead. Her brother, Leandro, is the longhorn’s handler and exhibitor.

Pauline Gonzalez, the mother of Marceala and Leandro, said the family transports Bucklehead to each show by loading him into an 8.5-foot wide trailer and taping tennis balls to the ends of his horns to protect them. The longhorn participates in about 12-15 shows per year.

Dutch family found in remote farmhouse may have been ‘Moonies,’ suspect to be held 14 days

The family discovered living mostly isolated from the outside world on a farm in the Netherlands for nearly a decade may have been associated with the South Korean-based Unification Church, also known as “Moonies,” Dutch media reported Thursday.

Prosecutors announced on Twitter that a 58-year-old man, whose identity was not released, is suspected of involvement in “deprivation of liberty and harming the health of others.” The man, widely reported in Dutch media to be an Austrian national identified only as Jozef B., was ordered by a judge Thursday to be held for an additional two weeks while the investigation into the matter continues.

The family and the 58-year-old are believed to have been affiliated with the Unification Church, broadcaster RTV Drenthe reported.

DUTCH MAN WHO REPORTED FAMILY IN FARMHOUSE ACTIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA, ESCAPED SEVERAL TIMES IN PAST WEEKS

The family became involved with the religious cult known for mass weddings when the father moved to the Netherlands and lived off donations that enabled them to live at the farm for nearly a decade in isolation, according to the broadcaster.

A cousin of the presumed Jozef B. told De Telegraaf the family was thrown out of the cult about 30 years ago.

“There was a lot of disagreement between my parents and my uncle, and between my uncle and the church association,” he told the newspaper. “At a certain moment he ran away angry.”

The Unification Church was founded in 1954 by Sun Myung Moon, a self-declared messiah who believed he was chosen by Jesus Christ to continue the work of establishing an ideal world of peace and harmony, according to Reuters.

Until his death in 2012, Moon oversaw mass weddings at which thousands were matched with spouses they sometimes had just met and in some cases did not even speak the same language. Followers of the group were often called “Moonies” by critics, who raised questions over how it indoctrinated members, according to Reuters. In the early 1990s, the group was believed to have as many as 7 million followers in 180 nations.

The organization was banned in Germany and other European continues in the 1990s because it was viewed as a dangerous religious sect, DutchNews.nl reported.

Among the rituals the “Moonies” at the farm in the Netherlands had to do were walking in a circle every 30 minutes, according to RTV Drenthe. After the family was initially taken off the farm on Monday, the family members continued to walk outside in laps every 30 minutes.

Bystanders saw the odd behavior and began taking photos, prompting Dutch authorities to relocate the family, according to the broadcaster.

FAMILY OF 7 DISCOVERED LIVING IN DUTCH FARM CELLAR FOR YEARS WAITING FOR WORLD TO END

The six members of the family, reportedly a father and children aged 18-25, were discovered this week living in what local mayor Roger de Groot called “improvised rooms” on a farm in the Netherlands’ rural east.

The father of the family reportedly had a cerebral infection three years ago that left him paralyzed, which allowed the family to keep receiving money from the organization. A large amount of cash has been found on the farm, RTV Drenthe reported.

They were discovered after a 25-year-old man left the farm, visited a local bar and raised the alarm. Dutch media reported Wednesday that the young man, Jan Zon van Dorsten, had been active in recent weeks on social media, including saying that he worked for a company run by the suspect who is to be charged.

Drone images of the farm showed a cluster of buildings with a large vegetable garden on one side. The small property appeared to be ringed by a fence and largely obscured by trees.

While Dutch media reported the family was living on the farm allegedly “waiting for the end of time,” officials have not released any additional details. The Drenthe Police Department said a Large Scale Investigation Team is now operating at the farm, and investigators are probing possible criminal charges, according to police.

“We understand that everyone still has many questions. We have that, too. That is why we want to do our research thoroughly and carefully,” police said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Massachusetts police used sock to calm emu that ‘terrorized’ community

A Massachusetts community can sleep a little easier after a high-stakes police operation Monday nabbed a menace that had “terrorized” locals: an emu.

Police officers in Franklin, a city roughly 45 miles south of Boston, spotted the tall creature and didn’t know what to do, blaming deficient police academy training on the crucial subject that left them with “little to no training in corralling large birds.”

OHIO GOAT NAMED ‘BIG BOY’ BREAKS INTO HOME, FOUND NAPPING IN BATHROOM

Undeterred, investigators said in a Facebook post they “went to work and quickly found the owner of [said] Emu,” and then set off to find the massive bird itself.

The bird’s owner, Kathy Gatchell, told WFXT she isn’t sure how the emu got out of its pen, but the jailbird’s skills and disposition made it a high-risk escapee, with Gatchell describing emus as “very difficult to catch” and not “very friendly.”

CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICERS CAPTURE FUGITIVE EMU ON FREEWAY

Those working to find the emu spent nearly an hour searching for it through the woods. Gatchell said the bird “didn’t let us get too close, as soon as we got close she’d run.”

Eventually, someone had the idea to play emu noises from their phone to try to attract the bird.

Sgt. Jason Reilly, one of the officers on the mission, said that when the bird got close, one police officer “took his sock off and put it over the emu’s head” — which is apparently a way to calm them down — and the cops then led the bird home.

“In a joint operation with the Animal Control Officer and the Franklin Police Safety Division, Officer Rosa and Sgt Reilly were able to bring the Emu home where it can no longer terrorize motorists of Lincoln Street,” the department wrote online. “No job too small no bird too big!”

Emus are the second-largest bird by height in the world, after the ostrich (and they’re not nearly as amiable or easy to find as another popular big bird that tends to confine itself to one particular street). It’s unclear how tall the emu spotted in Franklin was, but it certainly wasn’t native to the area, as the birds call Australia home.

Man tried walking 351 miles to have sex with deputy he thought was 14-year-old girl, prosecutors say

A man was arrested after allegedly walking hundreds of miles from Indiana to Wisconsin to have sex with a teen — who turned out to be an undercover sheriff’s deputy.

Tommy Lee Jenkins, 32, recently moved from Oshkosh, Wis., to Whitestown, Ind., and on Oct. 1 started chatting with someone named “Kylee,” who he thought was a 14-year-old girl living in Neenah, Wis., with her mom, federal prosecutors said.

When he was rejected, authorities claim Jenkins decided to walk to her — 351 miles away. While he walked, “Jenkins continued to engage ‘Kylee’ in sexually explicit conversations and updated her as to his current location.”

The 32-year-old told the teen he wanted to have 500 children with her in one year, the Oshkosh Northwestern reported, citing court documents.

As it turns out, “Kylee” was not a 14-year-old — but a Winnebago County sheriff’s deputy working with the Internet Crimes Against Children task force.

When Jenkins arrived in Winnebago County on Oct. 10, he was arrested by local authorities and the FBI.

“Our nation faces an epidemic of child sexual abuse, with the Internet making it too easy for predators to communicate with children across the country,” U.S. Attorney Matthew Krueger said in a statement. “The Justice Department is committed to working with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to prosecute child sexual abuse aggressively.”

Jenkins was charged with using a computer to attempt to persuade, induce or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity. He faces a lifetime prison sentence if convicted and, according to online records, remains jailed at the Brown County Jail in Wisconsin.

Florida man disguised as woman robs bank, steals patrol car, police allege

A man in Florida accused of robbing a bank while disguised as a woman has been arrested after he allegedly stole a police cruiser and led deputies on a two-county chase, investigators said.

Gumersindo Reyes Jr., 51, was wearing a gold dress and a red wig when he entered a Chase Bank in Casselberry, northeast of Orlando, and passed a note to the teller demanding money, Police Chief Larry Krantz told reporters. He allegedly left carrying an undisclosed amount of cash in his backpack.

Reyes drew the attention of a passing Seminole County deputy who saw the suspect ditch his disguise behind a bush, Fox 35 Orlando reported.

After failing to subdue Reyes with a stun gun, the deputy chased him into an apartment complex across the street from the bank, WFTV reported. The deputy reached for his firearm to order Reyes to the ground but Reyes also tried to grab the weapon, setting off a struggle.

Reyes then dashed out of the complex and stole the deputy’s patrol vehicle, police said.

“There’s nothing that drives me crazier than to see a ‘bad guy,’ or know that a ‘bad guy’ got behind the wheel of one of our patrol vehicles, even for just one moment,” Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said. “I’m OK that he was in the car, but he was sitting in the wrong seat.”

Reyes led deputies on a wild chase through Seminole and Orange counties before crashing the vehicle into another car in Maitland where they finally arrested him, police said.

He faced numerous charges including battery on an officer, resisting an officer with violence and robbery with a firearm, according to police records.

Man dies after ‘very hot’ fish cake burned his throat so badly he couldn’t breathe: report

A new report says a 51-year-old British wedding planner died earlier this year after he reportedly ate a fish cake so hot it burned his throat, causing swelling to his airways that ultimately impeded his breathing.

Darren Hickey — who was described by his partner, Neil Parkinson, as a “larger-than-life character” —  reportedly sampled a fish cake at a wedding venue around noon back on April 4, South West News Service (SWNS), a British news agency, reports.

The pain from the burn led Hickey, a stroke survivor, to seek medical attention at the Urgent Care Ward at Chorley Hospital. Medical professionals reportedly sent him home with acetaminophen and told him to return if the pain worsened. Hickey then went home to rest.

That evening, Parkinson, 55, claims he heard Hickey “making noises” and rushed upstairs. He reportedly found Hickey, of Bolton, Lancashire, choking.

“He was stood up choking and coughing so I banged his back but then he slid forward onto the floor,” Parkinson said, according to SWNS. Hickey was taken by ambulance to Royal Bolton Hospital, where he was pronounced dead just after midnight that evening. His death came roughly 12 hours after he’d sampled the cake.

The recent inquest into the man’s death heard by Bolton Coroners’ Court ruled that the burns to his throat caused extreme pain and swelling. The swelling to his airways eventually made it impossible for him to breathe and swallow.

Dr. Patrick Waugh, a pathologist who performed Hickey’s post-mortem, said the burns were far enough down in the man’s throat that they would not have been seen without specialized equipment.

Waugh compared the burns to those sustained by people who breathe in smoke during a house fire.

“The patient can appear well, they will be talking to you, but then the swelling starts,” Waugh said at the recently conducted inquest into the April death, per SWNS.

Hickey’s cause of death was ruled asphyxiation.

Acting Senior Coroner Alan Walsh called the wedding planner’s death an “immense tragedy.”

“I believe there are enormous lessons to be learned,” he said. “This was caused by eating a fish cake, very small and very hot but with catastrophic consequences.”

A California man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping a girl who, with the help other female teens, lured the man — in an unofficial “sting operation” — to help expose him as an older man looking to sleep with underage girls.

Richard Dreyfus, 32, was contacted by a group of girls on social media and planned to meet up at a location in Vista. When at the spot on Sunday, Dreyfus convinced the 17-year-old girl, whom he allegedly kidnapped, to get into his vehicle to talk. Then he immediately drove away, officials said.

Dreyfus drove the girl several miles, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. During that time, the teen “was able to send a message for help to the group, who called law enforcement.”

Deputies were able to call Dreyfus’s cell phone and he pulled over. The teen quickly fled from his vehicle, investigators said, adding she was rescued “unharmed.”

Dreyfus was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sending harmful matter to a minor and communication with a minor for specific offenses.

“There does not appear to be any relationship between the suspect and victim outside of their communication through social media,” the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators said they “strongly” discourage members of the public to try to catch criminals.

“These types of situations can be extremely dangerous and should be handled by your local law enforcement agency,” officials said.
