“Drunk” Baby Trashes Bar – Video

A baby who appears to have had too many margaritas trashes a make believe bar in Las Palmas. Behaving like so many other out of control drunks, the baby steals food and drink from another patron’s table and falls down drunk smashing a chair and a table in the process.

The “bar” is really a tiny size set for a movie, and the “patrons” are actually puppets on a string. Our video is really a trailer for an upcoming short film, Las Palmas.

The baby is real however, and the film is the brainstorm of Johannes Nyholm, who is a 37-year-old Swedish director with a lot of imagination. His other shorts can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/johannesnyholm#p/a/u/2/yedD4JsZyT0.

This imaginative video has quickly gone viral on YouTube with about 7 million views.

 

Mother Throws Newborn Baby into Snowbank

21-year-old Ashley Couch allegedly threw her newborn baby into the snow in Minneapolis Saturday morning and then left her there in 12 degree temperatures. The baby was only 18 days old at the time and still had a newborn hospital tag on her toe.

Keith St. Pierre was getting off a bus Saturday morning when he saw a woman throw her baby into the snowbank and run away.

St. Pierre quickly crossed the street and picked up the newborn infant. The girl, whose skin was red, was cold to the touch and would not wake up, St. Pierre told police officers who responded to the scene. He rubbed her chest for about 10 seconds until she eventually responded. He then wrapped the baby in his jacket while calling 911.

St. Pierre was so excited when he dialed 911 that the police dispatcher hung up on him calling him hysterical. He again called 911 remaining calm enough to induce the dispatcher to send a squad car to his location.

At that time Ashley Couch, the baby’s mother, returned to claim her child. According to a police report, Couch was angry at her newborn’s father when she allegedly threw the baby.

‘I can’t believe you did that to my baby!’

Police stated that Couch allegedly chased her baby’s father down a street Saturday and, when she caught up to him, allegedly threw their newborn girl into a snowbank.

“I can’t believe you did that to my baby!” the child’s father repeatedly screamed at Couch as police arrived at the scene at about 8 a.m. Saturday.

Police stated that the child’s father was upset and crying. He reportedly told officers that Couch had “slammed” their baby into the snow bank, the police complaint said.

It is not clear from the police report why the father did not intervene to care for the baby after the incident.

Couch told police officers at the scene that the baby’s father took some money from her and fled their home. She told them that she grabbed the baby and a blanket, chasing him down the street.

She claimed that when she caught him, she pushed him and the baby fell out of her hands into the snow bank, according to the police complaint. However, Couch’s version of what happened differs markedly from what Keith St. Pierre said he saw and from what a second witness also saw.

The baby was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment. Doctors said she was lethargic with cool skin and a body temperature of 95.8 degrees. They placed the child in an incubator treating her for hypothermia, and she recovered.

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office on Tuesday charged the mother, Ashley Renee Couch, with child endangerment and child neglect, which are both gross misdemeanors.

The Hennepin County Attorney also states the baby has no lasting problems and is now in protective foster care.

Walmart Patron Slaps Stranger’s Toddler Daughter

Stone Mountain, Georgia, resident, Roger Stephens, allegedly slapped a stranger’s two-year-old daughter Monday in a local Walmart for crying too much.

Stephens had been shopping at the Rockbridge Road Walmart in Stone Mountain, which is a suburb of Atlanta, when he apparently grew increasingly annoyed at the continual crying of a two-year-old girl in the store.

The child’s mother, Sonya Mathews, told police that her daughter was crying as they walked down one of the aisles.

Just moments later, slightly before noon, Stephens approached the child and Mathews, both of whom he did not know, and allegedly said, “If you don’t shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you.”

Shortly afterward, Mathews and her daughter were in another aisle, and the girl was still crying. Stephens allegedly grabbed the girl and slapped her on the face. According to Police he hit the child four or five times.

Afterward he allegedly told Mathews, “See, I told you I would shut her up.”

Another shopper stepped forward and held Stephens until store security arrived. The police report stated that, before police arrived on the scene, Stephens did apologize to Mathews for hitting her child.

The toddler suffered redness to her face but, otherwise, was uninjured. She was treated at the scene and left with her mother, who later told CBS Atlanta that she forgives Stephens, but she feels he may have mental issues.

Stephens was arrested and is being charged with felony first degree cruelty to children. He is being held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center.

Wacky Weather: Rare Red Tornado, Narrow Escape from Flooded Car

Some wacky weather provided some unusual videos last week.

This rare red Colorado tornado is one of four tornadoes that touched down near Denver at the start of the Democratic National Convention. This one was captured on film near Parker, Colorado.

The geological nature of the Rocky Mountains inhibit the formation of many tornadoes, although other parts of Colorado frequently receive their fair share of twisters.

The red twister arrived a day after a rare tornado touched down in the mountains west of Denver. That tornado tossed campers around and slightly injured four people at Witcher Cove Campground, The Denver Post reported.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Park County Coroner Sharon Morris told the newspaper. “And I’ve been here 25 years.”

The red Colorado soil plus the length of time the twister remained in the same area made for an unusual video:


In Apache Junction, Arizona, flood waters tripped up the motorist in the next video and almost dragged her and the child with her under water.

For some unexplained reason, this woman drove her car right into the flood waters, endangering a small child in the process. A couple good Samaritans aided in their dramatic rescue.

The woman and child were very, very lucky. That car almost completely submerged just before it hit the bridge. The weight of the engine was pulling the vehicle down into the water, but the back end was held up, perhaps because it was lighter than the front. This might well have ended tragically.

Britney Spears $737,000 Monthly Income $0 Invested

The Associated Press (AP) is reporting that Britney Spears earns $737,000 per month and spends all of it, neither investing nor saving any of it.

The AP’s sources are court documents from Britney’s child custody case with her ex, Kevin Federline. The documents were released Thursday.

Britney spends $49,267 per month in mortgage payments on two houses, $16,000 monthly for clothes, and $102,000 per month on entertainment, gifts and vacations.

She also spends $4,758 a month dining out, although most of the photos taken by paparazzi showing her dining out were of Britney at fast food restaurants. She also gives $500 per month to charities.

Britney pays $15,000 per month to Federline for child support and $20,000 to him for spousal support; however, the spousal support ends November 15th.

Here is a breakdown of Britney’s income and expenses:

The AP report makes no mention of where the other $500,000+ per month went.

Britney Spears Denied Extended Child Custody

Los Angeles Commissioner Scott Gordon handed down his ruling in the Britney Spears – Kevin Federline child custody case this week, and Britney was denied any further extended custody.

TMZ.com is reporting that Britney was awarded just three visits per week: two visits from Noon to 7 PM and one overnight visit. Most importantly, the visits must be monitored.

In his ruling the Commissioner wrote that when Britney has the kids, “the environment at the house ranged from chaotic to almost somber with little communication at all.”

He also said that “during all three of my visits, Ms. Spears rarely engaged with the children in either conversation or play.”

The most damning evidence against Britney came from her parenting coach who said, “It seems that (her) choices are dependent more upon what she wants to do at any given time rather than what would be more enjoyable for the children.”

The coach is also quoted saying that Britney also seems to have a “lack of general attention at times.” However, the coach did say that she did not find anything she “would characterize as abusive in a traditional sense.”

The coach further said that “the problem is that unless Ms. Spears realizes the consequences of her behavior and the impact that it has (on) her children, nothing is going to be successful.”

Of course, it is also possible that the Commissioner was also persuaded by images like this of Britney exposing herself pantyless to the paparazzi.

There is also evidence like the following video from Youtube.com that reportedly shows Britney behaving badly while allegedly under the influence.
