Looks like Arnold finally came back. Toronto police reported on Twitter this week that they had received a call about a man seen with a gun in the downtown core. After officers arrived to investigate, they discovered the culprit was actually a harmless cardboard cutout of “The Terminator”. Needless to say, no arrests were made.
UPDATE – PERSON W A GUN

The wheels on the bus ain’t going round and round anymore. A young boy recently came across a key to a bus this week, and rather than turning it in, he decided to play driver. The kid hopped inside and was seen maneuvering down the road while actually stopping to pick up passengers. At least three people came on board before they noticed the driver’s young age and, well, the fact that he couldn’t drive. Police were able to intervene and return the boy to his mom. No injuries were reported, but the bus had $1,500 worth of damage by the time the ride was over.
Something tells us they didn’t get the payout they were expecting. Police in Tennessee say two men broke into a home, stole the valuables inside and then rushed off to a pawn shop to convert their stolen loot into cash. But when they revealed the items to the man working behind the counter, he recognized them. Because the items actually belonged to the pawn shop employee. The victim called police and the pair were arrested inside the shop. There’s no word on what charges they’re facing.
Karma is a dish best served cold, folks. Florida man Patrick Holcomb was working at an auto-repair company when he got a text from his drug dealer offering to sell him some crack cocaine. Since it was raining, Holcomb didn’t want to take out his motorcycle. So instead, he allegedly stole a Jaguar from the lot and drove it to buy $30 worth of drugs. Unfortunately for Holcomb, the drug dealer’s friend then hopped in the car and stole it again. Holcomb has since been arrested for grand theft auto. There’s no word on what happened to the second alleged thief.
Clearly, the owl didn’t give a hoot. Police in the UK received a call about a bird who was blocking a roadway and refusing to move. When they arrived, they found the stubborn owl but it continued standing its ground. After a little gentle coaxing and a call to the RSPCA for advice, the feathered friend was moved safely and continued on its way.
