CHARLESTON, S.C., July 12 (UPI) -- Police in South Carolina said they arrested a pair of drunken men who were spotted walking around a city's downtown "completely in the nude."
Charleston police said an officer spotted Christoph Robin Egan, 19, and Andrew Stephen Dunford, 21, both of Montclair, N.J., walking "completely in the nude" around 2 a.m. Monday on Logan Street, the Post and Courier, Charleston, reported Wednesday.
The officer said Egan only had a cellphone and Dunford was carrying a bag containing both men's clothing. The report said both men smelled of alcohol, slurred their speech and had bloodshot eyes.
Egan told the officer he and Dunford had been out drinking at some bars and "thought it would be fun" to walk naked to the place where they were staying.
The men were arrested on indecent exposure charges and were released on bail later Monday.
Seat belt violation leads to stolen goods
SACRAMENTO, July 12 (UPI) -- California police said they discovered a trove of apparently stolen electronics in a car they attempted to pull over due to the driver not wearing a seat belt.
Sacramento police said an officer attempted to pull over a Ford Thunderbird near West El Camino and Northgate but the driver sped off with his two passengers, KTXL-TV, Sacramento, reported Wednesday.
"Immediately the vehicle fled [and] we initiated a pursuit. It lasted about 10 minutes and maybe hit speeds 50-60 miles per hour," police Sgt. David Nasca.
Nasca said the chase came to an end when the Thunderbird hit into the side of a parked Mercedes and crashed between two poles.
Police said all three suspects attempted to escape on foot, but they were able to nab the driver, a male on early release parole, and one passenger, a 16-year-old juvenile with an outstanding warrant.
The driver, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital after swallowing some drugs while fleeing.
Police said they are trying to determine the origins of the electronics found in the back seat of the car.
Man lugs home 57-pound mushroom
FERNIE, British Columbia, July 12 (UPI) -- A Canadian man hunting for edible mushrooms in southeastern British Columbia stumbled upon an inedible whopper that weighed 57.4 pounds.
Christian Therrien, 62, and son Sebastien were combing through waist-high wild grass last week near Fernie when they spotted the enormous puffball mushroom, the Fernie Free Press reported.
"There was lots of laughing and screaming," Therrien said. "I've found a lot of 5- and 10-pound mushrooms, but when I came upon this one I was shocked."
He took the giant fungus home to weigh it and said he would return it to where he found it so it could release its spores and perhaps create a new generation of jumbo Calvatia gigantea.
Therrien said the mushroom weighed about as much as an 8-year-old boy.
His wife Mimi said she was investigating to see if it might be a world record, the newspaper said.
In any case, Therrien couldn't have hosted a mushroom banquet, as puffballs are only safe to eat when they are very young and small, various agricultural and gastronomy Web sites said.
Town bans feeding wild turkeys
HAINESPORT, Pa., July 12 (UPI) -- Officials in a Pennsylvania town plagued by wild turkeys said a new ordinance imposes fines of up to $2,000 for feeding the birds.
The Hainesport Township committee passed an ordinance Tuesday night making it illegal to feed the nuisance turkeys and imposing fines for violations, WCAU-TV, Philadelphia, reported Wednesday.
Many of those who oppose the new law spoke during Tuesday's meeting.
"This is a wildlife area," resident Gail Hillmann said. "You've got a state park right behind us, wetlands. These people come in from Philadelphia who've never seen a turkey before except at Thanksgiving on their table and don't know how to handle it."
