The man who crashed his Mini Cooper into a metal barrier in the UK definitely didn't look like one of the Wise Men when he tried to hide in a nearby Nativity Scene.
The driver, who was driving drunk, tried to hide from police by becoming part of the manger scene, but he was spotted right away when local police arrived on the scene.
Social media went wild with the scenario with such Tweets as "God arrest ye merry gentleman" and "Obviously not one of the wise men."
BEST NOT TO USE YOUR WANTED POSTER ON FACEBOOK PAGE
Mack Yearwood skipped out before police arrived to investigate a battery complaint, but police didn't lose his trail for long.
Authorities checked Yearwood's Facebook page and found that he had used a wanted poster from an adjoining county for his main photograph. The police in that county were also after him for probation violations on two battery counts.
Instead of arresting Yearwood for the current battery complaint, all the police had to do was return to his home a few days later and arrest him for the outstanding warrants.
And one more thing ? as he was getting dressed to go with the officers, a bag of pot fell out of his jeans pocket. Sometimes you really can't win for losing!
CHECK THAT TRUNK IF YOURE GONNA STASH YOUR VICTIM IN IT
A man in Coral Springs, Florida decided to carjack a Lexus from owner Paul Brite. Carl Lee walked up to Brite at a car wash, brandished a gun and made him get in the trunk of his car.
A little while after he put Brite in the trunk, Lee decided he better check to make sure the kidnap victim didn't have a cell phone on him. It probably would have been better if Brite had a cell phone, because when Lee opened the trunk, he was looking down the barrels of two handguns which Brite kept in the trunk.
Despite being ordered to lie on the ground, Lee refused and Brite was forced to shoot him when he reached for something in his pocket. Police arrested Lee, and did not charge Brite in the shooting.

This comes just days after he posted a disturbing Twitter pic of himself with a bruised and swollen face.
OMAROSA: Insists She Resigned and Wasn't Fired
OmarosaManigault Newman appeared on Good Morning America today to set the record straight about her departure from the White House and insists she resigned and wasn't fired, contrary to media reports.
The former Apprentice star, who worked as the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, denied all of the reports suggesting that she was physically removed by Secret Service after trying to gain access to the White House residence. She also denied reports of a shouting match with Chief of Staff John Kelly and says they had a straightforward discussion about her resignation which, she insists, had always been planned for a year into President Trump's term.
The Secret Service backed up her story and says it had no part in removing Omarosa from the White House. All it did was deactivate her access to the complex, which means that if Omarosa is going to work until her last day on January 20th, she'll have to do it somewhere other than the White House. Omarosa also claimed that the reports about high drama involving her departure were fabricated by reporter April Ryan whom she says has had a personal vendetta against her.
TMZ also caught up with Omarosa who said she still has a good relationship with President Trump and sees politics in her future, possibly as an undersecretary or an ambassador.
SALMA HAYEK: Harvey Weinstein Responds to Sexual Harassment Claim
Harvey Weinstein has responded to Salma Hayek's New York Times column in which she alleges he sexually harassed her during the production of their movie Frida.
The actress says she had to repeatedly fend off Weinstein's sexual advances on the set of the movie and says the producer had even threatened her life. Overnight, Weinstein responded in a statement which reads, "all of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired."
Hayek said Weinstein forced her to film a sex scene with another woman, which the producer remembers differently. His spokesperson says he "did not recall pressuring Salma to do a gratuitous sex scene with a female costar and he was not there for the filming.
However, that was part of the story, as Frida Kahlo was bisexual and the more significant sex scene in the movie was choreographed by Ms. Hayek with Geoffrey Rush."
Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans sealed their wedding vows with a shot of tequila.
The shot, instead of champagne, had little to do with the location of the nuptials in Mexico, and everything to do with a special moment after the two of them met.
Kelsea and Morgan met while hosting an award show in his native Australia. It was during the afterparty that sparks flew. Kelsea says, “He was like, ‘Let’s take a shot.' I remember taking that shot and putting it down and looking at him like, ‘Oh…he’s super hot.’ Later that night he leaned over and asked if he could kiss me, like a proper gentleman, and I said yes.”
They were married on the beach in Cabo San Lucas on December 2nd.

WEIRD NEWS: Purina Teacher Chow
An elementary school teacher in England thought it would be interesting to make herself a guinea pig for an after-hours assignment -- by getting wasted in the classroom and scarfing down the food reserved for her class's pet guinea pig.
The woman, whose name was not released, went on a festive bender after downing a couple of bottles of wine that parents had donated to the staff as holiday gifts.
She ended up getting busted by administrators who heard a ruckus. She told police, “The deputy head found my teaching assistant cackling on the floor with a half-chewed carrot and me going at the bowl of pellets like it was a dish of bar snacks. I don’t remember much after that.”
The incident inspired a local teachers' group to come up with a list of no-nos, including "don’t post snaps of a colleague vomiting on Santa” and “never take pics of your rude bits."
WEIRD NEWS: Whataburglar Catches the Christmas Spirit
A Texas thief who stole a Christmas tree from a Whataburger restaurant and earned the nickname the "Whataburger Grinch" must have caught a bit of the Christmas spirit and decided to bring it back.
Police say the fast food joint's surveillance camera captured the moment the thief returned the tree. It could have ended there, but after dropping off the tree, the man walked to the police station where he turned himself in and offered to do some community service as his punishment. He explained that he took the tree on a dare.
The police department later had some fun with the "Whataburger Grinch" and wrote a fantastic Dr. Seuss-style story about it which was shared on its Facebook page. It reads, "Just like the Grinch in Whoville that year, He wound up finding his Christmas cheer. Our local guy, who stole from Whataburger on a dare, Returned the short tree, which is actually quite rare. To those who might steal this Christmas year, We ask that you rather give some Christmas cheer."
WEIRD NEWS: An Uber Ripoff
A five-mile Uber ride across Toronto should have cost one passenger around $16, but it wasn't until he saw the charge on his phone when he realized just how much he'd been taken for a ride.
The unidentified man was shocked when he saw a bill for more than $18,000, so he contacted Uber who told him that it wasn't a mistake and refused to give him a refund. But after his friend shared a screenshot of the charge on Twitter, an Uber representative finally admitted it was a mistake and offered a refund along with an apology.
In a New York Times op-ed today (Wednesday), Salma Hayek shares her own harrowing experiences with Harvey Weinstein.
The actress claims the mogul asked her for sexual favors, “physically dragged” her out of a party, berated her and made sexual propositions during the production of the 2002 bio-pic Frida. Weinstein even allegedly threatened her life. “I will kill you, don’t think I can’t,” Hayek recalls the producer saying when she refused one of his demands.
Hayek said she eventually gave in to one of those demands, that "he would let me finish the film if I agreed to do a sex scene with another woman." She wrote that she had a “nervous breakdown” when it was time to shoot the scene. "It was not because I would be naked with another woman. It was because I would be naked with her for Harvey Weinstein. But I could not tell them then."
Weinstein has denied the new allegations.

GEORGE CLOONEY: Passes Out Headphones to Passengers on Flight With Twins
Airline passengers have come to expect a crying baby on board the flight and no one understands this more than George and Amal Clooney.
The new parents gave away noise-canceling headphones to all of the passengers because they were traveling to England with their six-month-old twins and there would be a lot crying and wailing on board. The headphones, which were emblazoned with the logo of Clooney's Casamigos Tequila, came with a personalized message from George which read, "Apologizing ahead of time."
George's generosity is nothing new to his friends. His best friend and Casamigos co-founder Rande Gerber revealed how Clooney gave 14 of his friends a million dollars each back in 2013. He recalled Clooney’s dinner speech when he said, "I came to Los Angeles, I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you. I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that I give back.”
Keith Urban doesn't often discuss rumors, but he did take to social media last Saturay to comment on a rumor that's been making the rounds about him and his wife, Nicole Kidman, saying there's no truth to it whatsoever. Urban tweeted, "Not sure of how these ridiculous rumors start, but I'm hearing that I bought an apartment for Nic in NYC? TOTAL BS. Where does this stuff come from?!!!" Well, the stuff came from an article in Woman's Day that reported in November that Urban was considering buying Kidman a $52 million mansion in Manhattan that had once been owned by Michael Jackson.
He and Kidman, did recently list one of their properties in Tennessee. They are selling their 5,000 square-foot, four-bedroom farmhouse near Nashville for $3.45 million.

A family in New Jersey wanted to show appreciation for the delivery drivers during this time of year, so they set out a tray filled with candy, lip balm, tissues and hand warmers. To their dismay, they found the tray had been gone through and all the good stuff taken just a few hours after they put it out.
Perplexed, the Boudreaux family couldn't figure out why someone would do such a thing, so they set up small video camera to find out what was gong on. Sure enough, just hours after they replenished the supply of goodies, the tray had been ransacked again.
Eager to find out who was doing such a deed, the couple checked the video and discovered that a cute but mischievous squirrel was the one causing all the trouble.
It didn't take long to squirrel-proof the goodies. The chocolate is now in a jar that the squirrel has not been able to get into - yet.
A package thief in Denver, Colorado has figured out a way to bypass the homeowner's cameras when they arrive to whisk a package that is not theirs away.
This particular thief just dresses as a Minion from "Despicable Me," complete with a head piece that doesn't leave authorities much room to identify the person inside.
The homeowner said the package, which was a Christmas gift for her daughter, has been delivered by the U.S. Postal Service just minutes before it was snatched.
MANNEQUIN SPOTTED BY POLICE AS CARPOOL PASSENGER
An alert police officer was not fooled by the pretty blonde wearing sunglasses and a red sweater sitting in the passenger seat of "friend's" vehicle while traveling in the carpool only lane.
Turns out his suspicions were correct, as the 'woman' turned out to be a very well-dressed mannequin with bright red lipstick. The woman driving the vehicle had been pulled over when the officer noted that her "passenger" did not qualify her to drive in the carpool lane.
The Office of Constable Ted Heap, Harris County Constable Pct. 5, posted a photo of the mannequin on its Facebook page, noting, "This mannequin may have saved the driver on time and a $3.20 toll fee today, but it will cost her a day of work for court and up to $150 in legal fines."
It's not the first time a mannequin has been used to try to beat the carpool lane rules, and again, it happened because the driver was stopped. In Washington state, a driver was stopped for speeding and it was discovered that his blonde passenger was indeed a mannequin.
The good thing about both stops - both drivers and their passengers were wearing their seat belts.
THE WALKING DEAD: Actor's Dad Angry Over Son's Firing
[Warning: this post contains spoilers]
Plenty of characters have been killed off The Walking Dead, but the real-life father of the latest victim isn't happy about Sunday's twist ending.
William Riggs -- the father of Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl -- is blasting AMC for writing his teen son off the zombie show. In a since-deleted Facebook post, the elder Riggs writes, “Watching [Producer Scott] Gimple fire my son 2 weeks before his 18th birthday after telling him they wanted him for the next 3 years was disappointing. I never trusted Gimple or AMC but Chandler did. I know how much it hurt him. But we do absolutely know how lucky we have been to be a part of it all and appreciate all the love from fans all these years!”
Chandler admitted that leaving the show was not his decision but was “story related.” He told The Hollywood Reporter, “I was planning on going to college until I found out. I found out when I was doing rehearsals for episode six back in June. It was quite the shocker for me...and everyone because I don’t think anyone saw it coming."
But Carl isn't dead yet. He'll be in the next episode of The Walking Dead when it returns to AMC on February 25th.
Milkshake Duck is shorthand for a viral sensation whose sudden rocket to fame is followed by the discovery on an unsavory background. Keaton’s mother, Kimberly Jones deleted her Facebook account that reportedly contained racist comments and photos with confederate flags.
Kimberly said in one unverified post made shortly after the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville (quote) “Dear butt hurt Americans. If you aren’t bleeding, no bones are sticking out & you breathe, STOP crying!” (The Wrap)
Therefore, GoFundMe froze the "Stand Up for Keaton" account. The outpouring of support and donations reached nearly 60-grand. For the moment, there’s no guarantee he’ll see any of that money. GoFundMe shut down a second page supposedly to help pay for Keaton’s Christmas gifts. It may have been a fraud.

Luke Combs seems to have come out of nowhere -- and he could be as surprised as anyone.
Last year, he watched the CMA Awards from his couch. This year, he attended as a nominee with two hits under his belt. So, what makes Luke so successful? He tells People, “I think that I’m just a regular guy. I think people can really relate to that. I’m very non-threatening. And I don’t mean that in a disarming way. I mean that in a way that says, ‘Hey, that could be my buddy that I hung out with in high school.'”
He's on his Don't Tempt Me With a Good Time tour, which wraps for the year in his hometown of Ashville, North Carolina on Saturday.

The woman, whose name was not released by fire officials, was spraying alcohol on a first floor area the bugs had taken over when she either knocked over or sprayed a large pillar candle, igniting a blaze that quickly spread throughout the three-story Victorian house.

WEIRD NEWS: Bear-Ly Legal
A Utah man gave new meaning to the "right to bear arms" by chasing down a burglar with actual bear arms -- a can of spray meant to disable grizzlies and other nasty four-legged critters.
The man, whose name was not released, was awakened in the middle of the night last Tuesday when his motion detector went off and alerted him to the fact that someone was trying to break into a vehicle in his driveway. The homeowner grabbed the bear mace and went after the intruder, who took off, but couldn't scale a neighboring fence in time to avoid a hit from the disabling spray.
Cops arrived on the scene a few minutes later to arrest John Coopride, who has a long criminal history. The homeowner said, “I was not dressed. I was in my underwear, I had no shoes on, and my feet ended up getting bloodied just from chasing him down the street -- he threw his hands in the air and laid on the ground and said, 'I'm done.' "
CHARLIE SHEEN: Suing National Enquirer for Claiming He Raped Corey Haim
Charlie Sheen is suing the National Enquirer for claiming he raped Corey Haim in the 1980s.
Last month the tabloid reported that Charlie assaulted Corey while they were shooting the movie Lucas. Corey was 13 at the time and Charlie was 19.
Charlie tells TMZ, "In my nearly 35 years as a celebrated entertainer, I have been nothing shy of a forthright, noble and valiant courier of the truth. Consistently admitting and owning a laundry list of shortcomings, wrongdoings and indiscretions this traveler hath traveled -- however, every man has a breaking point. These radically groundless and unfounded allegations end now. I now take a passionate stand against those who wish to even entertain the sick and twisted lies against me. GAME OVER."
Corey's mother, as pointed out in the suit, has denied the allegations.
Charlie is also suing actor Dominick Brascia, who is quoted in the article saying Haim told him about the alleged rape.
HANNIBAL BURESS: Broad City Star Arrested
Comedian Hannibal Buress was arrested Saturday night in Miami and charged with disorderly intoxication.

When the officer refused, Buress allegedly became “angry and belligerent.” The cop told him to leave, the police report said, but he instead went inside a venue. The officer retrieved Buress because he thought the comedian was too drunk to stay around.
The officer’s report reads, “Once outside, the defendant stood by the front gate and continued yelling profanities. I, then again, asked him to leave the area about five times. A crowd began to gather and vehicular traffic slowed as they watched the defendant yelling and being disorderly. Defendant arrested.”
The comedian was released early Sunday morning after posting a $500 bond.
A video of Buress being arrested was uploaded to YouTube (but be warned it contains expletives).

CHRIS EVANS, MILLIE BOBBY BROWN: They Stand With Keaton!
Some of the world's biggest celebs are showing support for Keaton Jones, the Tennessee boy whose Twitter plea to stop bullying has gone viral.
The 11-year-old recorded a tearful video saying, "What's the point of [bullying]? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It's not okay. [They] make fun of my nose, they call me ugly, they say I have no friends."
Dozens of famous people then stood up and wrote to the young boy.
Avengers star Chris Evans invited Keaton to next year’s world premiere of Avengers: Infinity War. He tweeted, "Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in L.A. next year?"
