This Week in Odd News: Meatball Theft & An Expensive Mistake



RED FACED: MAN WITH SAUCE ON HIS FACE AND CLOTHES CHARGED WITH MEATBALL THEFT

HAZLE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) — Police say a damning clue led to the arrest of a Pennsylvania man charged with stealing a pot of meatballs — red sauce smeared on his face and clothes.

Authorities in Luzerne County have charged 48-year-old Leahman Glenn Robert Potter with burglary, criminal trespass and theft by unlawful taking for allegedly swiping a pot of meatballs from a man’s garage on Monday.

Police say the victim reported his meatballs missing and told officers at around 2:30 p.m. Monday that he saw Potter standing in front of his house with red sauce on his face and clothes. The pot was found on the street.

It’s unclear if Potter washed the sauce off before he was arrested a short time later.

Potter’s attorney did not immediately respond to a voicemail seeking comment.

UBER EXPENSIVE: DRUNK MAN TAKES $1600 UBER FROM WEST VIRGINIA TO NEW JERSEY

GLOUCESTER COUNTY, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man who got drunk in West Virginia and mistakenly ordered a $1,635 Uber ride back to his home state says the experience was “crazy.”

Nj.com on Wednesday reported that Kenny Bachman thought he was taking an Uber to where he was staying near West Virginia University’s campus.

But when his driver woke him up two hours into the more than 300-mile journey to New Jersey, Bachman says he didn’t know what was happening or who the driver was.

The trip was made more expensive because Bachman gave the driver money for tolls and ordered an UberXL, which can hold up to six passengers.

He says he tried to challenge the fare with Uber but ended up paying it.

Bachman gave his driver five stars.
