Sheriff's deputies arrested a woman on Tuesday for falsely reporting a school shooting as an April Fools' day prank. According to Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright, Angela Timmons sent a text to her daughter claiming that shots had been fired at Virginia College, where Timmons works. The daughter responded, but didn't receive an answer and called 911. More than a dozen law enforcement agents rushed to the school, where they found no evidence of a shooting. Timmons later admitted the text was just a joke. She also confessed to pulling similar pranks in the past. Timmons faces one charge of disturbing schools.




Tailgater In Viral Video Arrested

A tailgating road-rager, who crashed his car in this video that went viral last week, thought his punishment was done once he slammed his truck into a light pole. He was wrong. The video, taken by the driver of the car that he was obnoxiously tailgating, has been seen by nearly 10-million people. The local police department in Tampa also saw the video and they've arrested the driver. Police tracked down the driver by his license plate and charged him with reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to wear a seat belt. (Huffington Post)
