31-Year-Old High School Sophomore Arrested

A woman is behind bars after allegedly pretending to be an East Texas high school student at 31 years of age Charity Anne Johnson was enrolled at New Life Christian School in Longview Texas as a sophomore. Longview police say Johnson was arrested Sunday night at an apartment in the 400 block of S. High Street after giving officers a fake name and birthday. Officer Debra Stiles said Johnson gave officers the name "Charity Stevens." This is the same alias Johnson used to enroll at New Life Christian School. A spokesperson for the school said Johnson was brought in to enroll with a person who was her guardian. She enrolled in the school, giving a date of birth that indicated she was 15. On Tuesday, staff at the school discovered her identification was fake. She had been a student there since October 2013. Tamica Lincoln says back in March, Charity told her she was 15 and needed a place to stay. "I sympathized with her, and invited her into my home. I took her in as a child, did her hair, got her clothes and shoes..." As soon as Lincoln and Paul Ward suspected Charity was using a fake identity, they called the police and went straight to the school. "Teachers were crying and students were crying, and her best friend just couldn't believe it." Johnson was arrested for failure to identify/giving false, fictitious information. She remains in the Gregg County Jail on $500 bond. (KLTV.COM)




The latest selfie craze is hashtag #mirin (short for admiring) and it involves people – mostly men – flexing at the gym and in their bathroom mirrors. Yes, if your body is amazing you should be proud of your accomplishment and all your hard work, but the flexed selfie seems more silly than sexy, no? (BuzzFeed)



The mind numbingly addictive iOs game Flappy Bird was yanked off e-shelves right at the height of its popularity. But now game creator Dong Nguyen says it's coming back. The souped up version of Flappy Bird will now have multi-player capabilities and will be "less addictive" than it was before. (This is significant because the game's creator claims that people's addiction to this game was one reason he pulled it). Another possible reason for the games return? Apparently it nets Dong Nguyen about $50,000 a day in revenue. (Kotaku.com)
