NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Police in a Cleveland suburb thought they had a drunk on their hands when a man called to report a pig following him home from a train station.
A North Ridgeville, Ohio, officer arrived on the scene early Saturday to find the man was very sober and a pig was in fact following him.
The officer managed to get the pig in his patrol car and transported it to the station. It was eventually reunited with its owner.
Writing on Facebook, police mentioned “the irony of the pig in a police car now so that anyone that thinks they’re funny is actually unoriginal and trying too hard.”

(CNET) "Yeah! I'm going somewhere cool, gonna do some cool stuff. Gonna record myself doing some cool stuff.
"Ah shoot. I forgot to put my SD card back into my GoPro."
The above. It's happened to the best of us. "If we don't drive back right this second my Instagram followers are never gonna see me do a sick backflip at the trampoline centre."
OK, so imagine this, only instead of the "trampoline centre", it's space. Instead of a "sick backflip", it's a legitimate space walk.
Friends, this astronaut brought his GoPro into space, but left the SD card at home.
This clip was originally streamed live Wednesday on NASA's official Twitch account. It's amazing. I especially love that it's captioned "Left SD card at home LUL". We live in strange times.
I didn't even know NASA had a Twitch account. Definitely gonna subscribe to this bad boy. 
So when is NASA gonna start streaming Fortnite? I'm guessing latency might be an issue in space.

(TampaBay.com) A Florida man climbed atop a piece of equipment at a Clearwater Beach playground Sunday and yelled at a bunch of children in the area.
His message: Where babies come from.
Police took Otis Dawayne Ryan, 30, into custody on a charge of disorderly conduct. The incident occurred about 3 p.m. Sunday at a park in the area of Pier 60.
Officers said Ryan at first was approaching tourists and making inappropriate comments to women in an effort to get their male partners to confront him. An officer in the area was watching him at the time.
"I watched (Ryan) walk over to the busy playground area and climb to the top of one of the children's toys that was being occupied by children between the ages of 4 and 6," an officer wrote in an arrest report. "He then started shouting from the top telling the children that babies come out of women" — and used a vulgar term in doing so.
"At that time parents were rushing to the area to remove their children," the officer wrote.
Police noted that Ryan has caused a number of disturbances in the area recently — and jail records show a number of arrests over the last year on charges of disorderly conduct, battery and carrying a concealed weapon.
Court records show that in Sunday's case, Ryan was adjudicated guilty, fined $118, ordered to stay away from the park and released.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fl.-- A man found his way to the roof of a St. Augustine Wendy's Saturday night where he then stripped down to his underwear and started yelling at onlookers.
The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office tweeted Saturday around 8:45 p.m. that they were responding to a troubled individual in the area near US-1 and SR 312.
According to witnesses at the scene, the unidentified man had an argument with someone, became irate and climbed to the roof of the Wendy's.
After the man climbed to the roof, he stripped down to his underwear and started yelling at onlookers, according to witnesses.
It wasn't until four hours after SJCSO's tweet that the man was helped down by a rescue team.
The restaurant had to close during the incident.
At this time we do not know if this man will be facing any charges.

Investigators in California were pointed in the right direction after a prosthetic arm that was reported stolen last week was spotted in the alleged burglars' car, leading to arrests.
An officer with the Grass Valley Police Department on Wednesday came across the suspects — identified by the Nevada County Sheriff's Office as Michael Martin, Emma St. Claire and Mike Mulligan — and searched their car.
Law enforcement officials uncovered the prosthetic limb — which the sheriff's office described in a Facebook post as "the exact arm that was stolen in the burglary."
Martin, St. Claire and Mulligan were booked at the Wayne Browne Correctional Facility in Nevada City for suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property.
The prosthetic arm, the sheriff's office said, "was returned to a very appreciative owner."

A suspect who allegedly broke into a home in Massachusetts earlier this month was kind enough to make sure the family dog didn't get loose, after he realized a security camera was watching his every move.
The unidentified man was recorded entering the home in East Milton on May 7, just before 1:30 p.m., the Milton Police Department wrote on Facebook Sunday. He knocked on the house's rear sliding-glass doors in the kitchen a few times before the dog barked and tried to greet the new visitor.
The man — wearing tan cargo pants, a brown striped shirt and hat with gloves in his back pocket — apparently shouted "hello" into the house a few times while the dog bounded in and out of the kitchen.
The suspect, police wrote, "realized there were cameras in the house while committing the crime as he covers his face upon exiting the home."
But before the man left, he seemed to call for the dog to come inside — then shut the kitchen door.
The police department asked that anyone with information on the break-in or the suspect please contact Detective Gennes Seaton or submit tips at the department's anonymous hotline.

When a group of high school students was reported to police in Maine for blocking a street to take prom photos, cops made their way to the scene — and decided to get in on the fun.
"What do you do when someone calls the cops about Hermon High School students blocking Bangor's Exchange Street for a prom photo?" the Bangor Police Department asked on Facebook. "Nothing."
Officer Jamie Fanning and mental health liaison Andrea Carver posed for a photo with the 14 teens. Fanning wore a "classy gun belt and black prom gloves" while Carver donned her "best ballistic vest."
The department told the students to enjoy their prom night, and to "Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's thing alone, and be kind to one another. We will be here."
Bangor Police posted a similar photo with John Bapst High School students at their prom on Saturday, as those "prom goers felt left out."
The students posed for a "prom-off" picture with Officers Tom Clarke and Dan Place, as the department wrote the two officers seemingly "tried to dab."
"Look at these great kids allowing cops in their photos," the post read. "A glimpse of your America on a Saturday night."
The Bangor Police Department joked that "prom-offs" are "now a thing."

May 21 (UPI) -- A New Jersey police officer performed an emergency C-section to save a fawn after its mother was killed by a car.
Washington Township Animal Control Officer Robert Lagonera said in a Facebook post that he responded to a report of a pregnant doe that had been struck by a car about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
Lagonera arrived to find Washington Township Police Officer Jim Vernon had arrived on the scene and "performed an emergency C-section on the deceased doe" to rescue one of the two premature fawns from inside the deceased deer's womb.
Lagonera said he took the fawn home to warm and dry the newborn "while rubbing its chest to help the underdeveloped lungs work."
The animal control officer said he was soon dispatched on another call for a loose horse and he again ended up working with Vernon to get the wandering equine home.
"Now I'm running around getting the premature fawn the care it needs," Lagonera wrote.

A joyride in a motorized shopping cart landed a Largo couple behind bars on Thursday.
Security cameras were rolling when Jeffrey Robert Sabiel, 50, and Santa Marie Walters, 32, stole a motorized shopping cart from a Walmart located on Missouri Ave. in Largo, according to an affidavit. 
The couple was seen driving off the property and heading west on Rosery Road. News Channel 8 has not obtained the video in question. 
Shortly after the theft was reported, the cart was spotted outside Jimmy's Sports Bar in Largo and an officer found the couple at the bar.
After denying the theft, the couple admitted to taking the cart and was arrested on charges of grand theft.
They were both booked into the Pinellas County Jail.

May 21 (UPI) -- A Japanese company is making it easier for the phone-addicted to build muscle with a 22-pound iPhone case.
Telecom giant Softbank announced the 22-pound dumbbell case, billed as the world's heaviest for the iPhone, is now for sale on its website for about $100.
The case is composed of a standard dumbbell with a permanently-affixed phone case, designed to face the user at a 25-degree angle, which Softcom said is "ideal for watching movies" while pumping iron.
The company website shows the "macho case" also is usable as a tabletop iPhone stand, a doorstop and a tool for do-it-yourself crafts.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Sitting silently in the back corner of his kennel here at SCRAPS, a 2-year-old miniature pinscher mix who's blind in one eye, is desperately hoping for a second chance. Back in July, Alex was adopted by a family, but less than a month later, he was dropped back off with a potentially life-threatening injury. Alex fell from a  two-story balcony, likely due to perception issues, and shattered both his front legs in the process.
