Like many American families on Thanksgiving, an argument broke out amongst Cary, North Carolina’s Valencia family. However, when the argument between Esteban Marley Valencia and his brother escalated into a physical confrontation, their father, Jorge Luis Valencia-Lamadrid, got his gun and shot his attacking son in the hand and leg. The son was taken to a hospital for treatment, while dad was arrested on charges of aggravated assault. If you were wondering what the boys were arguing about, it was about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.
Cork, Ireland’s Kathleen McDonagh got the munchies while shopping inside a Tesco grocery store and helped herself to a can of Pringles. It seems that Kathleen had been previously barred from the store and when an employee noticed Kathleen popping the can open as she waited in line to pay, he demanded she leave. However, when Kathleen insisted on staying and paying for her crisps, she was instead arrested. Kathleen has since pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage to the Pringles and was sentenced to two months in jail despite being five months pregnant.

Travis Howard rear ended a vehicle stopped at a light near Cape Coral, Florida on Saturday evening. Howard told Lee County deputies he couldn’t remember how the crash happened and when asked to produce his driver’s license he handed officers a hotel card.

Apparently, Howard also forgot he’d been arrested as he asked the officer driving the patrol car, “Uber, when we get to my room, can I go to bed?”
Andrew Keeton recently enjoyed several beers and a shot at Conchy Joe’s Seafood in Jensen Beach, Florida. Apparently, the restaurant doesn’t have a ‘no shirt, no shoes, no service’ policy as Keeton enjoyed his beverages while shirtless.

When the bartender chased after him and demanded he settle up, Keeton yelled, “Be glad I don’t kill people anymore!” as he walked away. Police soon found the shirtless Keeton hollering in the middle of a nearby street, where he was arrested on charges including, yes, disorderly intoxication.
