200 Roosters Held in Arkansas Jail
Ah yes, that classic problem of having confiscated too many roosters and not knowing where to put them after raiding an illegal animal fighting ring — Authorities in De Queen Arkansas didn’t know what to do with the birds, which needed to be retained as evidence, so they just decided to house them in empty jail cells. I can only imagine how noisy it must be in the morning.
Last March Arkansas Police arrested 137 suspects attending the fight, some as participants, some merely spectators, and some likely involved in adjacent criminal activity. The successful raid was a joint effort between several agencies, who had been tracking the illegal gambling ring that reportedly changed locations every week.
The birds are indefinitely residing in the jail until the courts decide what to do with them. They are being cared for by the other inmates.

Unpopular YouTube Prankster Banned From Popular Burger Restaurant
With the popularity of often controversial YouTube pranks continually making headlines, people keep finding new ways to embarrass themselves online for views. One 27 year old YouTuber is facing serious legal consequences for his “prank” at a California burger restaurant, and the fact that he recorded the video himself makes it worse. His attorneys certainly have their work cut out for them.
The prank involved showing up to two different Los Angeles In-N-Out Burger locations, dressed in a full black suit, and posing as different members of management. The YouTube prankster proceeded to make a scene by throwing food on the ground, yelling about health code violations, and causing a general ruckus. His thinly veiled attempt to disguise himself did not get past the employees, who called the police on him at both locations.
The YouTuber is now officially banned from the In-N-Out restaurant burger chain, after the company filed a restraining order against him in court. The amateur streamer also faces $25,000 in damages for deceit, fraud, trespassing, and harassing In-N-Out’s employees. Pretty expensive bill for a joke!
