Drug store robber wore cast, bandages

WEATHERFORD, Texas, June 30 (UPI) -- Police in Texas say a man with a cast on his left arm and walking with a crutch held a handgun in his good arm to rob a pharmacy of narcotic painkillers.

Weatherford police said the robber, who also wore bandages on his head and had the arm bearing the cast in a sling, pointed a handgun at the Walgreens pharmacy worker about 2:30 a.m. Monday and demanded OxyContin, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported.

Wendy Field, a Weatherford police spokeswoman, said the suspect fled on foot with a large amount of the pills. She said investigators believe the man was not really injured.

Donald Duck charged with drunken driving

MASSILLON, Ohio, June 30 (UPI) -- Police in Ohio say the fifth arrest of a "frequent flier" named Donald Duck on drunken driving charges is nothing to quack at.

The Massillon Police Department said Donald Norman Duck, 51, who has four previous drunken driving convictions, was arrested Saturday after allegedly bumping another car at a drive-through Saturday, WJW-TV, Cleveland, reported.

Police said Duck's eyes were red and glassy and he smelled of alcohol when they arrived. Officers said a bag of marijuana fell out of the motorist's vehicle when he opened the door.

"He's a frequent flier," Capt. Joe Herrick said. "He's got multiple previous DUI's, multiple previous no operator's license and operating under suspension, so he's not that good a driver."

Duck was charged with felony operation of a vehicle while impaired, and misdemeanor counts of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Companies decode Ozzy's DNA profile

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 30 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts biotech firm says Ozzy Osbourne has asked it to analyze his DNA for his new health column.

Knome, a Cambridge firm that has analyzed DNA information from multiple celebrities for a PBS TV project, said the singer, reality TV star and now "Dr. Ozzy" health columnist for The Times of London asked it to run his genome for his weekly column, the Boston Herald reported.

Officials said Knome will be working on the project with Cofactor Genomics LLC of St. Louis.

"This data will lead to even more insight into what makes Ozzy tick, techniques far superior to playing all his records backwards," Dr. Jarret Glasscock, Cofactor's president, quipped to the Boston Business Journal.

Brothers charged in guitar attack

LARGO, Fla., June 30 (UPI) -- Florida police said two brothers were arrested for allegedly using guitars to attack their roommate because they thought he was stealing food.

Largo police said Kevin Lambert, 24, and Dustin Lambert, 19, became angry with roommate William Reaume at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday because Dustin Lambert believed Reaume to be "cooking his food," the St. Petersburg Times reported.

Police said the brothers used their fists, an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar to hit Reaume for about 10 to 15 minutes until he managed to escape and call police from a neighbor's home.

Reaume incurred injuries to his face, head and back during the attack, police said. It was unclear whether he required medical attention.

The Lamberts were charged with aggravated battery, false imprisonment, tampering with a witness and burglary with assault or battery. They were each booked into the Pinellas County Jail with bail set at $70,000.
