Boy, 8, Craves Burger, Drives Dad's Van a Mile to McDonald's

An 8-year-old Ohio boy was craving McDonald’s and his parents were asleep so he decided to take matters into his own hands. He along with his 4-year-old sister went for a ride in his dad's van, which he learned to drive on the internet.

A witness called the police after seeing the boy drive past them. The boy drove about a mile to the restaurant, through intersections and over railroad tracks, without mishap.

Witnesses say the boy appeared to obey traffic laws.

No charges have been filed.

FRECKLES' PICK

You Can Drink Beer Made From Baseball Bat Shavings At Atlanta Braves Games

Atlanta’s new home of the Braves, SunTrust Park opens tomorrow (Friday) and they’ll be giving fans the chance to taste baseball like never before. Thanks to the Terrapin Beer Company from nearby Athens, Georgia, a brand new beer called “Chopsecutioner” will be on tap. And it’s aged on wood from real Mizuno baseball bats.

“There’s some waste from bats from when they spin them down or carve them down,” explains Terrapin brewmaster Brian “Spike” Buckowski.” “And that’s the product that we use to age the beer.”

Chopsecutioner is only 5% alcohol by volume, so it’s ideal for sipping in the sun at a game. And it’ll be on draft for the entire Braves’ 2017 season, but there are no plans for “expansion” – you’ll have to head to SunTrust Park to taste it yourself.

KRISTEN'S PICK 

First Date, Worst Date

Some guys have no problem stealing a woman's heart on the first date, but an Arizona man was a lot less successful in his quest -- to steal a purse from a gal he was meeting for the first time.

David Harlow used a pseudonym to chat with the victim for a few weeks before setting up a date and meeting her at a resort just outside Phoenix. The newly introduced couple sat and talked over drinks for a bit, and when the woman decided she needed to use the restroom, she asked her date to watch her jacket and bag.

When she returned, Harlow was gone, along with her wallet and credit cards. She immediately called cops and her credit card providers, who informed her that her card had been used at a casino, and in failed attempts to withdraw money from ATMs. Officers tracked Harlow down the next day, charging him with felony theft and identity theft.
